Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/12/21

Cullen Hightower Quote: “We sometimes get all the information, but we  refuse to get the message.”

Saying what we think gives us a wider conversational range than saying what we know.”  —   Cullen Hightower

(Especially if we’re dopes!  Opinions can be very spicy.  Some are really salty.  But facts are usually pretty dry.  That’s why a lot of people disregard facts, in favor of opinions.  The folks at FOX News realize this!  That’s why they’re so popular with a certain crowd.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 11/12/21

Antique Dry Card Compass in Mahogany Box - Skipjack Nautical Wares |  Compass, Mahogany, Nautical

Navigating the Seas in the Age of Sail - Woods Hole Historical Museum

Answer:  A CASE IN POINT

(Avast, ye swabbies!  A salty pun, indeed!  Compasses made sailing under overcast conditions – when you can’t see the sun, or the stars – much easier.  As long as you know which way is north, then you’ll know where you are, and which way you want to proceed.  Get the point?!  In any case, it made for a fun Friday Jumble!

All of today’s clue words are already on board with ralis95.  Three of the jumbles have come up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “taaeb” sometime before.  None of them stumped me this morning.  The answer letter layout was another twisty twelve letter jumble!  I don’t think it gave anything away.

I always enjoy the nautical cartoons, or any cartoon that takes place near the water.  I’m not sure if these characters are pirates, but there is a sinking sail ship on the horizon.  It’s possible that these guys had something to do with that.  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
