Clue/Question:  They re-surfaced the pool table, and – – –

How Much Does It Cost to Refelt a Pool Table (DIY and Professional Costs)?  - Man Cave Advisor

Answer:  IT FELT GREAT

(A clean slate!  Covered by a brand new, fresh, smooth layer of felt.  All the other tables are green with envy.  Or burgundy, or blue . . . or any number of colors these days.  It’s not like the old days, when just about every pool table was green.  But felt is felt.

All of today’s clue words are already on the ralis95 clue word database.  But it looks like all of the jumbles are new.  The only one I struggled with was “lhuemi”.  I took the easy way out, and backed into “helium”.  There was enough of the answer letter layout, without the LI, for me to solve the final answer.  The final answer slots made that easy for me.  But it’s an excellent eleven letter jumble.

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/18/22

Clifton Fadiman - Hollywood Star Walk - Los Angeles Times

Ennui, felt on the proper occasions, is a sign of intelligence.”   —   Clifton Fadiman

(The vast majority of us need to be mentally stimulated.  Hopefully, that means the vast majority of us are intelligent.  This is our first Clifton Fadiman quote at the Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  So, we welcome Mr. Fadiman to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Yes, I had to Google Clifton Fa in order to get his last name.  I also struggled to get this one started, as my first inclination was that PROPER was PEOPLE!  But I couldn’t think of any three letter words that could end in L.  IS A SIGN got me started.  Then I saw INTELLIGENCE.  It took me a while to see PROPER!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
