Cryptoquote Solved – 12/01/22

Sarah Kay: A Lifelong Passion For The Arts

It is December, and nobody asked if I was ready.”   —   Sarah Kay

(A short, but definitely not easy, quote to come up with!  None of the words, nor the author’s name, end in an E.  I think the key for me – after figuring the M was the A – was finally spotting the word NOBODY.  This appears to be the very first quote from the American spoken word poet to be used as a Cryptoquote.  So, we welcome Sarah Kay to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 12/01/22

78 Fun Eye Charts ideas | eye chart, optometry, eyewear store design

Visual Description:  I spy an eye guy!

RAALV  =  LARVA,  CNHIP  =  PINCH,  RETESO  =  STEREO,  CIREFE  =  FIERCE   —   Giving us:  RVINSOIE

Clue/Question:  The eyeglasses prescription was out-of-date and needed a – – –

Optometrist in Bothell & Lynnwood | Eye Doctor | Alderwood

Answer:  REVISION

(An eye-opening stinky pun!  How about this one:  same, better, or worse?  This reminds me, I am way overdue for an eye exam and new glasses.  I’ve had the same glasses for about three years.  I’ve been near-sighted since I was 12 years old, and it got progressively worse over the years.  I think it has stabilized . . . finally.  But like most . . . ahem . . . senior citizens, I’ve also become far-sighted.  So, I wear trifocals.  Progressive lenses.  But because I’m SO near-sighted the reading portion doesn’t really help all that much.  Most print that I read is still so small!  I guess I sat too close to the television when I was a kid.  Oh well, they say hindsight is 20/20!

All retro clue words.  No revision of the ralis95 clue word database needed today.  One of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “raalv”, “cnhip” and “reteso” in previous Jumbles.  I didn’t have to struggle with any of them.  The answer letter layout was an easy eight letter jumble.  It was fairly cryptic, but the final answer was as plain as the nose on my face.

Great Jumble cartoon of the older gentleman at the optometrist’s – maybe ophthalmologist’s –  office.  I really liked the eye chart on the wall!  It’s a clever anagram of JUMBLE PUZZLE!  Not a terribly difficult Jumble, but a fun one.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
