Cryptoquote Solved – 08/09/22

Marcus Tullius Cicero (-106--43) - Find a Grave Memorial

A room without books is like a body without a soul.”   —   Cicero

(A fairly tough solve!  No “the”, and only one word ending in E.  The double O’s were somewhat of a clue, but I first suspected ROOM might be GOOD, and BOOKS might be LOOKS.  I didn’t even see WITHOUT for a while.  Seeing IS LIKE is what helped me a lot.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 08/09/22

David L. Hoyt and Jeff Knurek - Writer - BOOMER Magazine

Visual Description:  Inside the sausage factory.

LTUVA  =  VAULT,  ROSNT  =  SNORT,  KTEELT  =  KETTLE,  STAPRO  =  PASTOR   —   Giving us:  VUSNOTLEPO

Clue/Question:  The Jumble creators enjoy making puzzles that are – – –

Jeff Knurek: Just Jumble App | Stamps School of Art & Design

Answer:  PUN TO SOLVE

(And, that they are!  For a lot of us – many of us “senior citizens” – this is how we start our day.  A cup of coffee and the Jumble.  Then maybe the Cryptoquote, and/or the Celebrity Cipher – which I now do – and possibly the Crossword Puzzle.  Some will work on/solve the Sudoku, but I don’t have the patience, or inclination for that.  We just need that mental stimulation, to convince ourselves that we’ve still got it, and we haven’t reached senility . . . yet.

Today’s clue words?  Yes, we’ve seen them all before.  But all of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  It took me a couple of looks to see “pastor”.  The answer letter layout was a tidy ten letter jumble.  I thought it was jumbled expertly.  The quotation marks were the biggest clues in getting the final answer.

Fine cartoon of David and Jeff in their workspace.  It looks like they are showing us how the sausage is made!  It’s nice to see that they are allowed to bring in their dogs!  “Pun” Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
