Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/15/21

Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas in Paris – just around the corner – The  Paris Residences of James Joyce

You look ridiculous if you dance.  You look ridiculous if you don’t dance.  So you might as well dance.”   —   Gertrude Stein

(Then, I guess I really don’t have any excuse for not dancing tonight.  I’m definitely the self-conscious type, with no sense of rhythm.  But, I can do the white man’s overbite thing!  If Gertie can do it, so can I.  Wish me luck, guys.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/15/21

Green Anaconda | National Geographic

Visual Description:  Years and years . . . on the bayou.

LIVAL  =  VILLA,  GAMIE  =  IMAGE,  GTBLEO  =  GOBLET,  NFYOLD  =  FONDLY   —   Giving us:  VILIAEGLEFONL

Clue/Question:  The anaconda celebrating her 20th birthday was happy to be able to – – –

Ten Interesting Facts About The Capybara, The World's Largest Rodent

Answer:  LIVE A LONG LIFE

(When I saw that the answer letter layout was thirteen letters long I thought I was in for a tough solve!  But then I saw the cartoon, read the clue/question, and saw the layout of the final answer slots, and I immediately saw the answer.  I think that the critters that are helping her celebrating better watch their backs.  Not a whole lot of animals are NOT an anaconda’s prey!

We have seen all of today’s clue words before.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen both “lival” and “gamie” in past Jumbles.  The thirteen letter answer letter layout was fairly cryptic jumble.  But as I said above, there were lots of clues to help me out.

Cute Amazonian jungle scene cartoon.  Great frog, toucan, and – possibly – a capybara.  I know that they are native to South America.  Those big snakes are positively prehistoric!  They’ve always given me the willies.  I don’t understand why some people want to keep them as pets.  They’re not warm, they’re not furry.  I guess they’re relatively low maintenance.  And, they are fascinating.  But for me, they’re not pets.  To each their own, I guess.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
