Clue/Question:  The vintage sweater with so many buttons was – – –

The 9 Best Thrift Shops in California!

Answer:  OLD-“FASTENED

(Yeah.  I guess OLD FASHIONED is hyphenated sometimes!  But this was a very clever, stinky pun!  My daughter LOVES shopping at thrift shops.  In a lot of them you just pay by the pound!  Now, that’s a good deal!  I’ve got a lot of old suits that I probably should donate to one of these places.  All I really need is a nice blue one for happy occasions, and a black one for funerals.  Right?

Classic clue words again today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “cuend” before.  The answer letter layout was an elusive eleven letter jumble!  It did an excellent job of disguising the final answer.

Great cartoon of some smart shoppers at a second-hand store.  I can’t make out the name of the store though.  I can usually read backwards, but the small cursive is making it difficult for me.  The multi-buttoned sweater is a little much, but I do like the argyle one  the other lady is holding.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

People with disabilities do not need to be fixed; they need to be accepted for who they are.”   —   Jordan Christian

(From a champion of the challenged!  I’m not sure I agree 100% with him, but if the disability is one that can’t be fixed, then sure.  If it CAN be “fixed” then why not “fix” it?  But this looks to be the young man’s first quote to be used at the Cryptoquote, so we welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)    —   YUR

Cryptoquote Solved (Late) 07/25/22

Portrait of Cecil Day Lewis by Robert Buhler on artnet

Summer has filled her veins with light and her heart is washed with noon.      C. Day Lewis

(Daniel’s father???   Nah!  Some sappy British poet.  But he was Poet Laureate for a time!  This appears to be the first C. Day Lewis quote at the Cryptoquote, so we welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Well, it should’ve been yesterday, but I was only half here.  Oops!  I spoke too soon.  He was Daniel Day Lewis’ father!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  If they were going to repair the roof before the next storm, they’d need to – – –

How to Check a Roofing Contractor's License in All 50 States

Answer:  GET RIGHT ON IT

(“How you gonna do it if you really don’t wanna climb by standing by the wall?  Get your back up off the wall.”  Dat’s Kool . . . & The Gang, baby!  I used to be good at “Name That Tune”.  But now, with all the Justin Bieber, Beyonce, Katy Perry, and Harry Styles, etc. songs I just draw a blank.  And, you can pretty much totally forget about anything Rap, or Hip Hop!  I got Monday’s Final Jeopardy Rock & Roll Hall of Fame question – Stevie Nicks – but I whiffed on Friday’s Final Jeopardy Inaugural question, because I was thinking it was Tennessee’s gubernatorial inaugural ball, and NOT Al Gore’s Vice Presidential inauguration!  So, I thought it was Paul Simon’s “Graceland”, but the answer was Paul Simon’s “You Can Call Me Al”!   And, I was SO sure I was right!  Oh, well.

We’ve seen all these clue words before.  Three of the jumbles came up as new for me, but we have seen “gfyog” before.  The answer letter layout was a terrific twelve letter jumble.  I think the spacing of the final answer slots was my biggest clue.

Fine cartoon of a home owner, with a leaky roof, and a couple of roofers.  Nice storm clouds on the horizon.  And, a cute puppy dog pressing up against the window.  Sorry for the late posting.  Some days just get away from you.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
