Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/18/22

Sylvia Earle: Exploring and protecting the ocean for seven decades

Every time I slip into the ocean, It’s like going home.”   —   Sylvia Earle

(It’s kind of ironic that this is today’s Cryptoquote, as I just picked up my step-son Manny from the airport.  He lives in Hawaii and is an avid surfer.  He surfs at least 2-3 time each week, and just loves the ocean.  He draws and paints surf/ocean scenes, and he writes surf poetry.  This appears to be our first quote from the renowned oceanographer and marine biologist, Sylvia Earle, at the Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  I really like her take on the seafood industry, and their over fishing practices.  Very true and very sad!  So, we welcome Ms. Earle to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 04/18/22

ORTGU  =  GROUT,  NFYNU  =  FUNNY,  VASHIL  =  LAVISH,  WNUEIS  =  UNWISE   —   Giving us:  GRONNLIUN

Clue/Question:  For the Boston Marathon, it’s better to have stamina than speed – – –

Boston Marathon 2022: Start time, route, qualifying times, list of past  winners | Sporting News

Answer:  IN THE LONG RUN

(Wow!  Some things really do creep up on you.  Today was/is the Boston Marathon!  At least it’s back on its regular schedule.  It was cancelled in 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the 2021 race was put off and then finally held in October.  So, this year’s is only six months after the 2021 race.  I guess it’s still being run as I type.  The Wheelchair folks ran a little earlier, and a Daniel Romanchuk won the men’s, and Manuela Shar won the women’s!

All of today’s clue words appear on the ralis95 clue word database.  Two of the jumbles are coming up as new for me, but we’ve definitely seen both “ortgu” and “vashil” in past Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a nifty nine letter jumble.  Sufficiently cryptic.  The layout of the final answer slots, and the whole setup made for a quick solve.

Fine cartoon of a reporter covering the event, and interviewing the men’s winner.  A little surprised that Jeff went with the stereotype of what appears to be an African male.  Okay, they usually DO win it, but some dude from Sweden could just as easily have won it!  LOL!  Maybe.  Easy Monday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
