Does Minoxidil Treatment Really Work? - Christoffels Hair Restoration

Answer:  DEPARTED

(Dearly departed!  No guy enjoys losing his hair.  Especially the older they get!  They’ve had it for so long!  And, they’ve spent years and years teasing their bald friends about their . . . situation.  How do I know so much about it?  Because I’ve teased my friends for decades, but now I’m experiencing a bit of thinning and receding.  I’m not to the point where I’d consider shaving it off, but it’s a little disconcerting.

We have seen all of today’s clue words before.  Three of the jumbles do appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “budeol” sometime ago.  They all came to me immediately.  The answer letter layout was a great eight letter jumble.  Expertly cryptified, by our bald buddy, David L. Hoyt!

Fun cartoon of the middle-aged couple experiencing one of life’s challenges.  A comb-over is never a good look.  If Minoxidil doesn’t work, and you can’t afford plugs/transplants, then it’s usually time to throw in the towel, and shave the rest off.  I remember when Michael Jordan first did this.  He kinda made it fashionable!  Now, lots of younger guys go this route.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

An Interview with Harry Mathews – EOAGH

A man is too apt to forget that in this world, he cannot have everything.  A choice is all that is left.”   —   Harry Mathews

(Are you listening, Jeff Bezos???  Jeff’s got folks in Rotterdam up in arms, because he’s having a mega yacht built that is SO huge that they’re going to have to – temporarily – dismantle a portion of a bridge, in order for him to get it out to sea!  Some locals are so upset about it that they plan to throw rotten eggs at the yacht as it’s leaving.  It’s just so tough being the second richest person in the world!  LOL!  Harry seems to have been a good egg!  A writer of novel, short stories, essays and poetry, he appears to be new to the Cryptoquote.  So we welcome Harry Mathews to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
