They did it again, and I don’t have the time to redo it properly!  This newer version of WordPress really SUCKS sometimes!!!   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 12/06/21

A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain | Audiobook |  Audible.com

Visual Description:  Assurances.

SAYET  =  YEAST,  RPWEI  =  WIPER,  NDYEOK  =  DONKEY,  MRISEM  =  SIMMER   —   Giving us:  YASWRDOKMMR

Clue/Question:  Mr. Twain predicted his latest story would become popular by saying – – –

Mark Twain Brand Inner Cigar Box Label – thelabelman

Answer:  MARK MY WORDS

(Well, I guess you couldn’t really Samuel his words.  Now, could you?  By some strange coincidence(?) today just happens to be the 132nd anniversary of when “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court” was first published, way back in 1889!  Very good timing, guys.

All of today’s clue words have been on the ralis95 clue word database for quite some time.  Three of the jumbles have also been used in past Jumbles, with only “rpwei” being new.  They all came to me very quickly.  The answer letter layout was an enchanted eleven letter jumble.  I thought there was nothing obvious about it.  I just picked up on the “guarantee”, and the calling him MR. Twain.

Great cartoon of Mark Twain, and I guess his publisher.  I love that he’s smoking a cigar.  For a while, Mark Twain lived in Elmira, NY, but he left New York, and I believe he was living in Hartford Connecticut when he wrote this book.  I guess that’s why it’s a Connecticut Yankee!  Great Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/06/21

MLB remembers Hall of Famer and Cardinals legend Lou Brock - YouTube

Show me a guy who’s afraid to look bad, and I’ll show you a guy you can beat every time.”   —   Lou Brock

(One of the greatest baseball players of all time!  With a .293 lifetime batting average, 3023 hits and 938 stolen bases!  He was a dominant force in the 1960’s and 1970’s.  Ricky Henderson surpassed him in stolen bases, but he also played about five more years than Brock did.  First Lou Brock quote to make the Cryptoquote.  So, we welcome Lou Brock to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
