Cryptoquote Solved – 09/26/22

Did Alex Haley Lie To Us? | Revue

In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future.”   —   Alex Haley

(Some internet sites include the article “a” before the word “link”.  This line could be from one of Alex’s books, spoken by a character who either isn’t educated, or just isn’t big on articles.  But that puts me in mind of the 1976 comedy movie “Murder By Death”.  It was a whodunnit send up to fictional book/movie detectives.  Truman Capote’s character finally goes off on Peter Seller’s Sidney Wang character for ALWAYS omitting the article when he speaks.  With today’s political correctness the movie probably couldn’t be made, as it uses the stereotypes of these famous fictional detectives, but it is still very funny in my book.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When they arrived to see their friends by the campfire, they got a – – –

Answer:  WARM WELCOME

(Probably not that much of a pun, when you come to think about it!  I believe the origin/etymology of the phrase most likely goes back to early times, when being asked to sit by someone’s fire, or being asked into someone’s warm home, was considered a sign of acceptance and welcoming.  It probably evolved into the more emotional aspects of “warmth”.

Yes, we have seen all of today’s clue words in the past.  However, three of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  I can only verify that we have seen “msurem” in previous Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was an elusive eleven letter jumble.  By itself, I thought it was excellently cryptic.  The cartoon, and the leading nature of the clue/question, and the final answer slots, all made for a quick solve.

Great cartoon of Jumble’s two favorite couples:  Jeff and Kathy Knurek, and David and Claire Hoyt.  A scenic campsite, with a roaring campfire.  And, David is roasting a weenie/hotdog on a stick!  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
