Clue/Question:  The tusked African swine suffering from nervousness was a – – –

African Acacia Thorn Trees Reclassified | Tourism Tattler

Answer:  WORRY WARTHOG

(Pumbaa started out as worrier?  Hmm.  I never knew that.  Of course, I probably haven’t seen the movie – the original one – since the mid ’90s, nor the Broadway musical since October 1997.  We got primo seats to the opening week of the Broadway show, because my Mother was a good friend of the Choreographer, Garth Fagan.  Lots of celebs in the audience.

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we have definitely seen “ownos” before.  I didn’t struggle to get any of them.  The answer letter layout was a terrific twelve letter jumble.  I thought it was wonderfully cryptic.  I picked up on WORRY right away  And, WARTHOG immediately after.

Cute cartoon of the Tusked African Swine!  Worthy of a Disney film!  Nice acacia trees off in the distance!  I also liked Mom’s hair and pearls . . . before swine?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Before buying anything, it is well to ask whether one could do without it.”   —   John Lubbock

(I ask myself that every time I shop . . . except when it comes to either beer, or chocolate!  Life is shorter than you might think, and believe me it goes faster and faster as you get older!  This appears to be our first John Lubbock quote, here at the Cryptoquote.  So we welcome Sir John Lubbock, 4th Baronet to the Cryptoquote Club today!  A very interesting fellow.  Started off in banking, but then got into politics and science!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
