Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/20/21

Winston Churchill - Quotes, Paintings & Death - Biography

Out of intense complexities, intense simplicities emerge.”   —   Winston Churchill

(Either Winnie was paraphrasing someone else, or someone else paraphrased Winnie, because I’ve definitely heard a variation of this quote before.  This was a tough one for me to get started.  I figured OUT OF early on, but wouldn’t commit to it until I figured out the E and the T.  I also figured the last name ended in either ETT, ESS, ELL, ALL . . . or ILL, and finally realized we were dealing with CHURCHILL.  Didn’t they used to say that all babies look like Winston Churchill?  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer (Cont.d): SPELL TROUBLE

(Beware, Nancy! You know your Aunt Fritzi has eyes in the back of her head. Well, since it’s 2021 – and NOT 1933 – so Fritzi probably has surveillance cameras all over the place. That cookie jar is liable to break, and you’re more than likely going to get caught. And then her question to you is going to be: Can you spell grounded?

All of today’s clue words are long time residents of the ralis95 clue word database. However, it appears that all of the jumbles are new! But none of them gave me any TROUBLE. The answer letter layout was a terrific twelve letter jumble. It took me a few seconds to suss out TROUBLE. And, as I started to write out SPLLE I realized it was SPELL.Cute cartoon. I haven’t seen the strip in years. Does the new Nancy wear pants sometimes? I mean, it makes sense, but I always remember her in her little red skirt. Is Ernie Bushmiller spinning in his grave? Ahh! He’ll get over it. Ms. Olivia James has brought Nancy into the 21st Century. The times they are a changing, my friends! Great Guest Jumblers week! Be well and do good, folks.) — YUR

PS.  For some reason WordPress is screwing with me again!  I started out in Classic editor, but somehow it got corrupted.  Not sure if I can add color above!     YUR
