Cryptoquote Solved – 05/18/22

Théophile Gautier - Wikipedia

Fortune loves to give slippers to those with wooden legs, and gloves to those with no hands.”   —   Theophile Gautier

(This guy just looks like the prototypical poet.  He just doesn’t give a flip!  Something about this quote puts me in mind of that Alanis Morissette song:  “Ironic”.  I remember some people pointing out that some of the things she was singing about weren’t actually examples of irony.  But it’s still a good song.  Give it a listen.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 05/18/22

A Guy's Guide to Shopping for Engagement Rings

Visual Description:  Commitment shopping.

10 Things No One Tells You About Shopping For An Engagement Ring | HuffPost  Life

Answer:  PONDERRING

(I think that some people have a phobia about doing the Jumble.  Some are on the verge of pulling their hair out!  But there are an array of positives about solving the Jumble.  Solving them is a great way to unwind!  Do any of you long-timers remember the gentleman who used to put together a little story using the Jumble clue words?  This was way before our friend Ken was on the scene.  I just can’t remember his name.  Wonder if I could do a deep dive, and find the name.  I’ll give it a shot.  But if any of you remember his name you’d be saving me a bit of time!

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen both “rgeev” and “abohip” in previous Jumbles.  None of them gave me any trouble though.  The answer letter layout was a terrific ten letter jumble.  The quotation marks and the hyphen were the big clues for me.

Fun cartoon about a Jeff Knurek flashback, to the days when he was going to propose to Kathy.  He looks about the same as he does now.  Maybe a little thinner . . . and geekier.  LOL!  But I’d say that he found the right ring, because Kathy said yes!  And now they have two beautiful adult children.  A little slice of life Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
