VONWE  =  WOVEN,  SFHER  =  FRESH,  DARPEA  =  PARADE,  LOYESL  =  SOLELY   —   Giving us:  WVNFRHAREOE

Clue/Question:  The deer had a baby, and they just loved to – – –

Answer:  FAWN OVER HER

(Awe!  An endearing, stinky pun!  But, all baby dear are adorable, not just the females.  I know Clarice thought that Rudolph was pretty cuu-uute!  That is probably still my favorite Christmas time cartoon.  That, and “A Charlie Brown Christmas”.  But, that is more for the great Vince Guaraldi jazz piano pieces than anything else.  I still have the soundtrack on CD, and play it every Christmas season.

It’s looking like there are two new clue words today, and for all practical purposes there are.  But, the jumbles are indicating that we have seen one of them before.  The word “woven” does not appear on the world famous ralis95 clue word database, but the jumble “vonwe” is showing up in my Tags, indicating that it has been used before.  It likely appeared in a Sunday Jumble before I worked out the “Oh, ralis95” notification in the Sunday spoiler subject line.  The other new clue word is “solely”.  The three other jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout made for a nice eleven letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.

Cute nature scene cartoon.  Not sure why he gave spots to the adult deer though.  Spots are usually just on the fawns.  At least for white tailed deer.  They lose them as they mature.  No biggie though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Reasoning with a child is fine, if you can reach the child’s reason without destroying your own.”   —   John Mason Brown

(Nothing easy about today’s quote!  It took a little work to get this one.  I picked up on YOU and YOUR before WITH and WITHOUT.  The Y had to be the A, because the P looked really good to be the E.  This is our first quote from J.M. Brown.  So, we welcome John Mason Brown to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  WON“-DOLLAR BILLS

(I hope no one let the dash/hyphen throw them.  It was kind of extraneous.  But, it’s still a good stinky pun.

There were no new clue words today, but they were words we haven’t seen in a while.  All of the jumbles came up as new.  It took me a little while to see “loaded”.  The answer letter layout was a nicely cryptic fourteen letter jumble.  I was kinda seeing WON right off, but I got distracted.  Then, I saw DOLLARS, and forgot about WON.  I wrote out BLOWSLIN, finally saw WON again, then figured out BILLS, and the pun!

It’s nice to see Jeff giving equal time to the ladies!  Maybe he figured I wouldn’t get up on my soapbox, about the evils of gambling, if they were women!  LOL!  I got no beef with friendly games.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A great work is made out of a combination of obedience and liberty.”   —   Nadia Boulanger

Visual Description:  One tough mama!

LYUGL  =  GULLY,  DAAPN  =  PANDA,  MLUFEB  =  FUMBLE,  YAAAPP  =  PAPAYA   —   Giving us:  ULLPNFBEPAA

Clue/Question:  When faced with danger, the mother bird was – – –

Image result for tough alley cat

Answer:  UNFLAPPABLE

(That’s a cute, stinky pun!  Maybe she’ll get her own Netflix show.  The Unflappable Mother Bird!  I wonder if Ellie Kemper can play a bird?  I hear she can do squirrels.  Hmm.  It’s a little out there, folks.  But, I’m not just blathering.

None of today’s clue words can be considered new, in any respect.  Three of the jumbles could claim that, with “daapn” hving definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout was a superior eleven letter jumble.  I wouldn’t be surprised if some of you struggled to get the final answer.  Although, I saw it right away.

Cute nature cartoon.  That old Tom looks pretty tough.  I guess mom could dive bomb the cat, as he attempts to climb the tree.   Without her, the chicks don’t stand a chance.  Another fun perspective cartoon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Some people like to make of life a garden, and to walk only in its paths.”   —   Japanese Proverb

(This can be taken a couple different ways.  The positive being that gardens are places of beauty and sustenance, and that here is great merit in creating such.  But, one could also look at this negatively.  All gardens have some kind of boundaries, so limiting yourself to its paths makes you very provincial.  Your growth is very limited, if you don’t venture out into the rest of the world.  Hey!  Let’s make the world one big garden!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
