Clue/Question:  Memorizing lines for the play would require a lot of effort.  She’d need to – – –

Liberty Mutual (@LibertyMutual) / Twitter

Answer:  KEEP THAT IN MIND

(Reminds me of the Liberty Mutual commercial, where the hunky – but dopey – “struggling” actor,  played by Tanner Novlan, can’t remember the extremely obvious next line!  I think it’s brilliant.  I also enjoy the ones with Limu Emu & Doug, but they’re just kind of silly really.  Being a stage actor IS more demanding than TV or movies, because there really are no do-overs, but some next word/lines are SO obvious that it’s really not a good look for this particular actress.

Hoyt gave us all classic clue words today.  However, all of his jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  I was able to see them all immediately though.  But the twelve letter answer letter layout jumble was another story.  KEEP was pretty obvious to me.  But because of the word “lines”, in the clue/question, I was looking for the middle four letter word to be THEM.  But I knew the last word had to be MIND, so I came around to THAT.

Great cartoon of the struggling actress – yes, I still use the word – and her unimpressed co-star, on stage, while the frustrated director tries to inspire her queen from off-stage.  I’ve done both – a zillion years ago – and directing can be very frustrating.  I enjoyed acting much more.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Solved – 07/20/22

Neil Armstrong · English reading exercise (intermediate level) | bitgab

That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”   —   Neil Armstrong

(Aahh!  The intended version of the quote, and not the one where he actually left out the word “a” between for and man!  Even as a twelve year old, I questioned the quote, as mankind and man are generally considered synonymous.  But the dude – an iconic American hero – was doing something unprecedented at the time.  He was setting foot on the friggin’ moon!  Sure the video was grainy, leading some to claim that it was – somehow – faked, but it was 1969 fer Chrissakes!  Technology has exploded at least tenfold since then, maybe more.  Do you think that there might have been some strong emotions going on in ol’ Neil’s head?  I do subscribe to a few anti-official accounts of some historical events, but the “faked moon landing” is NOT one of them.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
