Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/16/22

YORK Peppermint Patties Miniatures - 25 lbs. | Bulk Candy | HERSHEY'S

All you need is love.  But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”   —   Charles Schulz

(Hmm!  I wonder if his character Peppermint Patty hails from York, Pennsylvania???  LOL!  Definitely one of my favorites.  I have a bag of them – the minis – in my snack drawer.  I don’t eat them everyday, and I try to limit myself to one when I do.  This was a very quick solve today.  I think the Celebrity Cipher was actually a bit tougher!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.”   —   Source Unknown

(A very good quote.  I have a tendency to take myself a little too serious, but I can laugh at myself at times.  Much healthier than calling yourself a friggin’ idiot!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Do you want to meet the love of your life?  Look in the mirror.”   —   Byron Katie

(I . . . again . . . thought this was a guy!  Who names a girl Byron?  But, it seems that we’ve had a quote of hers before.  While I agree that in order to love others, we need to love ourselves.  But, I think this quote takes it just a little too far.  And, is not really an appropriate quote for Valentine’s Day.  Definitely not romantic.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Christmas morning with the kiddies.


Clue/Question:  The kids awoke to find gifts under the tree and loved the way they were – – –

(I don’t know guys.  I think this particular Jumble answer may have been re-gifted!  But, it’s a good, stinky pun anyway.  Reminds me of Christmas at my house . . . twenty some years ago.

No new clue words on this day.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “sreyds” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  It was nicely cryptic.

Great cartoon.  Mom and Dad are clearly not awake yet.  The kids no doubt got them up at the crack of dawn.  I don’t mind that aspect of Christmas being in my past!  We’ve also gotten to the point where we mostly give gift cards.  There are a few wrapped presents, but nowhere’s like the old days.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Keep the good tidings and friendship of the holiday in your heart all year long.”   —   The Puzzle Editors

(Maybe we should all make this our primary New Year’s resolution!  Saving money, losing 20 lbs, and going to the gym more often should be further down the list.  Right???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A *Dedicated* Imitation!

As Charles Caleb Colton once famously said:  “Imitation is the sincerest [form] of flattery”.  So, I guess I should be flattered that someone has created a blog, powered by WordPress no less, with the web address of:  JumbleAnswers .com.  

It’s a little hard to determine how long it has been around, but the posts do bear a striking resemblance to my Jumble Spoilers.  Maybe, it is written by someone who once frequented, but objected to my politics, or sense of humor, or something.  The commentary portion, especially, reads very much like mine.  She – because it looks like it might be written by someone named Angela – even makes references to Hoyt and Knurek.  I’m not sure if they endorse the blog, or not.  In the few posts that I read I did not see them commenting . . . but who knows.

The – quasi-official looking – blog states that it has 800 something “Followers”, but each one of its posts has either zero, or 1 or 2 – at most, that I could see – “Likes”.  I can understand this, as a good number of the “Followers” may not be on WordPress themselves, but each post seems to have a surprising number of comments.  After reading a number of the comments though, I got the strange feeling that the blog’s creator is just having a conversation with them self!  It looks a little too much like a controlled call and response, to me.  Maybe it’s just me.  Maybe I’m just jealous???  LOL!

Anyway, it is out there, friends.  So, give it a look, and give me your impression of it.  If nothing else, let it be noted that Yer Uncle doesn’t mind a little competition!  Although, I’m a little surprised that they are getting away with the name!  Hmm.

Be well and do good, friends.  Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
