Cryptoquote Solved – 11/30/22

The Life Story of Thich Nhat Hanh | Plum Village

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world Earth revolves.”   —   Thich Nhat Hanh

(If I were a gambling man I would have bet a great sum that we have never had a quote from this man.  But it seems we have had a quote from  the “father of mindfulness”, at least one other time.  This was a bit of a tricky solve, as I did hone in on “which”, but shied away when I was seeing the name Thich!  But the words “tea” and “as if it is” put me back on track.  Just in case we haven’t done so before, we welcome Thich Nhat Hanh to the Cryptoquote Club.  It looks like he passed away, just this past January, at the age of 95.  You know, reading the obits I noticed that a lot of nuns live well into their 90s too.  Maybe there is something to staying out of the ol’ rat race!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The difference between the words “dark” and “light” is – – –

Bernadine Lormilus — TeachBoston.org

Answer:  LIKE NIGHT AND DAY

(Like the difficulty of the last two days’ Jumbles to today’s!  Not that today’s was super hard, but any time you have to unscramble twelve letters, to make three words, it’s going to be more of a challenge.  Great Jumble pun, utilizing a well-worn idiom.  I just heard that Christine McVie, of Fleetwod Mac, just passed away, at the age of 79.  Another piece of my adolescence has bitten the dust.  And the world has lost another songbird.  Rest In Peace, Christine.

Believe it, or not, it looks like we have a brand new clue word today, in “chilly”.  I suppose it is possible that we’ve seen it in an earlier Sunday Jumble, but it is not currently on the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  So, soon it shall be.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new.  I can only confirm that we’ve seen “penti” in an earlier Jumble.  The answer letter layout was a terrific twelve letter jumble.  Wonderfully cryptic, it did a fine job of disguising the final answer.  At first I thought I might be in trouble, but the answer struck me like a bolt of lightening.

Fine classroom scene cartoon.  It looks like the teacher is giving a little language studies class.  I think the opposite of an 8 or 9 year old is ralis95!  The boss-man is really getting up there.  Well, none of us are getting any younger, are we?  Let’s make the best of everyday.  Who knows if it might be our last!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  The goat parents took their children to a restaurant that was – – –

How to Encourage Friendliness and Trust in Baby Goat Kids

Answer:  KID FRIENDLY

(Oh, you kidz!  A really corny pun!  But cute as heck.  Goats are related to sheep, right?  Do they ever call a nanny goat a ewe?  Or, a billy goat a ram?  I guess not because they don’t call kids lambs.

It’s one of those rare days where all the clue words are on the ralis95 clue word database . . . and all four jumbles have been used in prior Jumbles!  That doesn’t happen very often.  It’s not really all that interesting though.  The answer letter layout was an excellent eleven letter jumble.  But even without writing it down, or reading the clue/question, I was able to get the final answer.  The cartoon and the final answer layout was all I needed.

Really cute cartoon of the little goat family dining at a makeshift table.  With a chicken wait staff and a few other patrons, all eating in the barnyard.  Very nice.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
