Cryptoquote Solved – 07/13/22

Who was Carrie Fisher and how did she die?

Stay afraid, but do it anyway.  Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow.   —   Carrie Fisher

(Could’ve been a Celebrity Cipher, except today wasn’t her birthday.  But speaking of birthdays:  Happy Birthday to Roger McGuinn, Harrison Ford, Cheech Marin, Leon Bridges, and many others!  Robert Forster was also born on this day, but he passed nearly three years ago.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SUREFIRE WAY

(Stinky pun?  Possibly, but not because of sulfur!  I wouldn’t be surprised if a situation like this was the basis for the compound word:  surefire.  Regardless, it made for a good Jumble pun.

All of today’s clue words are on the latest version of the ralis95 world famous clue word database.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  But we’ve definitely seen “suwein” in at least one previous Jumble.  The answer letter layout was an enlightened eleven letter jumble.  Nothing obvious.  The phrasing of the clue/question told me that the three letter word was likely WAY, and from deciding on that I saw the complete final answer.

Fine cartoon of a couple of dudes setting up their camp.  Looks like a pup tent to the left, and the makings of a campfire, and some cooking utensils.  I’m a little surprised that “Jumble” doesn’t have their own SUV!  We regularly see a Jumble-mobile, but no SUV.  Hmm!  Were the guys paid for this product placement???  Be well and do well, folks.)   —   YUR
