Cryptoquote Spoiler -10/05/21

Fun Facts Friday: James Russell Lowell | Man of la Book

They are slaves who fear to speak for the fallen and the weak.”   —   James Russell Lowell

(I guess this pretty much sums up our corporate media!  People are getting crapped on all over the world, but they remain silent, while “informing” us of Britney Spears’ trials and tribulations, and billionaires flying into space!  The iceberg lettuce of “news”.  It’s nice to see a quote from a person of conscience!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  They were headed out to go surfing, but the lifeguard was going to – – –

Surfing tragedy that stunned a Dutch beach community - BBC News

Answer:  WAVE THEM OFF

(Dude!!!  And, they were so stoked and amped to drop in on some gnarly curls!  But the waves were too heavy and choppy.  Just too much juice, dude.  Oh, well.  Tomorrow is another day.  Better to be safe than sorry.  That’s what my Mom always used to say.

We have seen all of these clue words before.  I still remember the $hi+ storm from when we once had “foyer”.  We don’t need to go through that again.  All of today’s jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  The answer letter layout was an elusive eleven letter jumble.  Nicely cryptic.  But any time I see two F’s and an O in an answer letter layout, I know one word is going to be OFF.  And, of course the lifeguard is literally waving a flag!

Super cartoon!  The waves definitely look brutal!  You can see why our little sailboat is unlikely to make it through this storm.  But how about that!  Two days in a row that we got the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon!  For me, that’s like being a kid in a candy store.  Very satisfying, indeed.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
