Jumble Solved – 07/22/22

Stoney Creek Hotel & Conference Center - Des Moines Hotel - overview

Visual Description:  Back to basics.

DMITS  =  MIDST,  INNOO  =  ONION,  RNHUBC  =  BRUNCH,  CAMPIT  =  IMPACT   —   Giving us:  MIDONONUNCIMAC

Clue/Question:  The couple stayed at a remote bed & breakfast.  They wanted to be – – –

The Rustic Inn in McCall, ID | Expedia

Answer:  INNCOMMUNICADO

(A fantastically – stinky – Friday Jumble pun!  And, one of the longer final answers for a non-Sunday Jumble.  It looks like they’re staying at The Grizzly Adams’ B&B.  And, maybe they’re going to have to catch their breakfast themselves!  They better hope that they don’t become a bear’s breakfast!

All familiar old clue words today.  Although, it has been quite a while since Hoyt has used “midst”.  Two of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  But we’ve definitely seen both “innoo” and “campit”  in previous Jumbles.  I think Hoyt inn-advertantly broke one of his own rules!  One of his jumbles is part of the final answer!  Oh, well.  A fabulous fourteen letter answer letter layout jumble.  But I think with the quotation marks, and all the repeating letters, this became a pretty quick solve.

Great cartoon of the rustic hostelry.  It looks like the mountain man is so back to basics that he uses a quill pen and an ink-well.  I would not expect much in the way of amenities.  Their wake-up call is probably a rooster.  But at least no one should be bothering them.  Fun Friday Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Solved – 07/22/22

Sally Ride Is Getting Her Own Forever Stamp | Live Science

The stars don’t look bigger, but they do look brighter.   —   Sally Ride

(Either part of a longer quote, or maybe just a short answer to a reporter’s – or a child’s – question.  Sally was the first female American astronaut.  And, even though she was married to a fellow astronaut for nearly five years she was the first astronaut known to have been LGBT.  Tragically, she died of pancreatic cancer at the early age of 61.   This looks to be the first Sally Ride quote to be used at the Cryptoquote, so we welcome her to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
