Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/26/21

Why did Mother Teresa pursue social justice?

It is not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”   —   Mother Teresa

(We should all strive to be as charitable as we financially can, but there are other ways we can give to others too.  Volunteering your time is a great way to give back, to your community, or to the needy.  Also, just treating those less fortunate than you with compassion is a way of putting love into your giving.  Making eye contact, and smiling, and the simple act of a few kind words, can make someone feel that they’re still part of humanity.  So, give what you can.  And remember the old saying:  There but for the grace of God go I.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Maine in Pictures: 20 Beautiful Places to Photograph | PlanetWare

Visual Description:  Down East in The Pine Tree State.

RYDTI  =  DIRTY,  SYMSE  =  MESSY,  KNAWEE  =  WEAKEN,  RJANGO  =  JARGON   —   Giving us:  DIMEENAO

Clue/Question:  The female deer living in New England’s largest state was very happy with her – – –

The Best Coastal Maine Road Trip Stops - Family Traveller (USA)

Answer:  DOEMAINE

(A wonderfully stinky pun!  An alternative to this could have been Homer Simpson enjoying his trip here, and having a pine cone drop on his head.  Then the answer could have been “DOH-MAINE”!  Or, or, or . . . a bread maker vacationing here, somehow resulting in “DOUGH-MAINE”!  Can anyone come up with another kind of “DO”???

All of today’s clue words are tried and true clue words.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new.  However, we have definitely seen “rydti” in previous Jumbles.  None of them stumped me any.  The answer letter layout was a sedate eight letter jumble.  Not obvious at all.  But the clue/question’s dancing around the obvious, and the layout of the final answer slots, made for a quick solve.

Marvelous cartoon of the adorable “female deer”, chilling in the grassy field, by the tree-lined shore of “New England’s largest state”.  I really liked the pine trees and pine cones, the little lighthouse in the distance, and of course the tiny classic sinking sailboat on the horizon.  I’ve only been to Maine once, but I think that Jeff caught its essence.  Aah, the wonder of Maine!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
