Cryptoquote Solved – 05/10/22

Mecca Woods | Authors | Toronto Star

Be mindful of measuring yourself by how much you do for other people.  It’s not your job to be a savior.”   —   Mecca Woods

(I don’t know, but it doesn’t sound much to me like Mecca is a parent.  My kids are 35 and nearly 31, and I’m still at their beck and call!  And, I did for my Mom, and I do for my wife.  And I contribute to a slew of charitable organizations.  Maybe I have a savior complex???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  She offered to help her younger brother clean up his room to – – – 

Chicago Blackhawks ban fans from wearing Native American headdresses at  home games - NBC2 News

Answer:  MESS WITH HIM

(Well, I certainly hope that the big sister received some kind of punishment for her infraction.  A deal’s a deal, and it looks like she’s not willing to hold up her end of the bargain.  But of course, he shouldn’t get in the habit of blackmail anyway.  Secrets and lies – even ones of omission –  are not conducive to a happy family life.

All of today’s clue words are on the ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles do appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “shikw” sometime in the past.  The answer letter layout was an elusive eleven letter jumble.  Beautifully cryptic.  The final answer did not jump out at me, especially with only three vowels.  But I started with HIM and worked backwards to get the pun.

Cute cartoon of a big sister and her younger brother, at his very messy room.  Clothes, drink cups, a guitar, a lacrosse stick, and either a small spike ball net thing, or a very large tennis racquet.  And, it looks like he’s a Blackhawks fan!  I’m guessing she’s 16-17, and he’s 14-15.  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
