Answer:  SPREADING THE WORD

(And, it looks like RAVE is the word!  Gotta love it!  I’ve only had the opportunity to play Scrabble a very few times.  But the times I was able to play it I definitely enjoyed the game.  I can’t really say I was all that good, but I think I wasn’t the big loser at least.  Good game.

All of today’s clue words are tried and true.  Four of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen both “tutelo” and “mtrwha” in previous Jumbles.  I didn’t struggle to get any of them though.  The answer letter layout was a spectacular sixteen letter jumble.  I thought it did a splendid job of disguising the final answer.

Great cartoon of folks playing Scrabble, on a card table.  The lady with her back to us looks like she’s getting ready to spell JUMBLES . . . if she can build off something that’s currently on the board.  A pretty challenging Jumble, folks!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/17/21

Biography – LA ROCHEFOUCAULD, FRANÇOIS-ALEXANDRE-FRÉDÉRIC, Duc de La  Rochefoucauld-Liancourt, Duc d'Estissac – Volume VI (1821-1835) –  Dictionary of Canadian Biography

Loyalty is in most people only a ruse used by self-interest to attract confidences.”   —   La Rochefoucauld

(What a bizarre thing for a 17th Century moralist to say about loyalty!  I’ve always considered loyalty a great virtue.  Maybe, he had grown a little jaded?  Maybe, the quote has lost a little something in translation???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —    YUR
