Cryptoquote Solved – 12/07/22

Frank Lloyd Wright, Rochester – Caught in my headlights

Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature.  It will never fail you.”   —   Frank Lloyd Wright

(Mr. Wright certainly was prolific!  He designed over 1000 structures during his working life, including the Edward E. Boynton House, in my home town of Rochester, NY.  I had actually forgotten that there was a F.L.W. house there!  Ironically, it was only a few blocks away from my Mom’s last home.  Which just happened to be next to her grandmother’s – my great grandmother’s – home.  Next time I’m up that way I’ll have to swing by and have a look.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 12/07/22

Helpful Hints from the Ushers | Broadway in Hollywood

Visual Description:  Hoyt and Knurek, At The Movies!

NAROP  =  APRON,  PDHET  =  DEPTH,  DULYOC  =  CLOUDY,  SEERJT  =  JESTER   —   Giving us:  APRDEHCODJTE

Clue/Question:  They sold more movie tickets at the theater than they – – – 

Kashmir's first multiplex set to open in September | Deccan Herald

Answer:  HAD PROJECTED

(Oooh!  A real stinker of a pun.  This one would be rated Certified Fresh 2018.svg on Rotten Tomatoes!  I definitely cannot remember this answer being used before.  And that is such a relief.  I’m so tired of sequels and pre-quels, with all their fabricated “backstories”!  A little originality, for a change, is very refreshing.

All of today’s clue words were remakes from older Jumbles.  Yet, we’re seeing a whole new cast of jumbles!  None of them had any real “depth”, but they got the job done.  The answer letter layout was a twisty twelve letter jumble.  Nothing predictable about it.  I checked off HAD right away.  From the remaining PRECODJTE the word PROJECTED came into view.

Great cartoon of ushers at the multi-plex!  I think that might be our friend Angela in the audience.  She has always fancied herself as the Jumble’s biggest fan.  I wonder if the boys comped her tickets?  Save me some popcorn, Ange!  Lots of fun today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
