Cryptoquote Solved – 11/02/22

Interviewing Margaret Cho About Myself | Thought Catalog

Just because you are blind and unable to see my beauty doesn’t mean it does not exist.”      Margaret Cho

(Very amusing Korean-American comedienne/actress.  Interesting life.  She says she believes in polyamory and pansexualality, which means that I’d have a shot . . . if I wasn’t married!  This appears to be the first of her quotes used at the Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting these.  So, we welcome Margaret Cho to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Are you ready for today’s grumpy old man rant?  NO?  Well, too bad, because here it is.  I miss the days when a Hershey Bar – or any chocolate bar – was first wrapped in a foil covered paper, and came in a paper sleeve.  Nowadays, they all come in these crappy plastic wrappers.  Do we really need more plastic in this world???  You used to be able to slide out just enough of the foiled bar, where you could break off a relatively small piece, then re-wrap it, and push it back in the sleeve for later.  The all plastic wrappers don’t really allow for this.  I think that the candy companies want us to eat the whole bar in one sitting . . . so they can sell us more bars.  And, I don’t buy the argument that these plastic wrappers keep them any fresher.  I’m sure that it’s just cheaper for them to do so.  Bring back the old wrappers, consarnit!  LOL!

It’s a good thing that David L. Hoyt is sticking with age old Jumble clue words!  None of those new-fangled words for our guy!  LOL!  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new though.  But we’ve definitely seen “prhom” some time in the past.  Not that any of them were tough, but of the four that might have been the sneakiest.  The answer letter layout was a three-star thirteen letter jumble.  Deliciously cryptic!

I guess the original name of the town in Pennsylvania was Derry Church, before Milton Hershey opened his candy factory there.  But Mr. Hershey really built up the town for his employees, building schools, parks, churches, recreational facilities, housing and a trolley system.  It’s only a few hours drive for me, but I’ve yet to visit it.  My daughter is a huge choc-o-holic, so maybe we can make a day trip to see it one day.  I liked Jeff’s turn of the century drawing.  Nice job.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
