(Belated) Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/01/20

I always expect unexpected challenges.  Boxing is not an easy sport.”   —   Sugar Ray Leonard

(Little Muhammad!  Sugar Ray was primarily a welterweight, but he fought with the chutzpah of Muhammad Ali.  He relied on great footwork and quick combinations.  With his speed and elusiveness – and his taunting – he frustrated many an opponent into making fatal mistakes.  He didn’t possess pure knockout power, but he was a thing of beauty to watch.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  Pandemic pre-school learning.

INAPO  =  PIANO,  FTADR  =  DRAFT,  NOOGLB  =  OBLONG,  CANNEU  =  NUANCE   —   Giving us:  INODATNGNUC

Clue/Question:  He’s been able to understand the meaning of 1,2,3,etc., for a few months – – –

2010-summer-oregon-culture-history-hippie-oregon-young-hippie ...

Answer:  AND COUNTING

(No new clue words this day.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “inapo” before.  The answer letter layout was a great eleven letter jumble.  Nicely cryptic.  Cute bohemian couple, raising their toddler.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Will my son-in-law go bald? - Saga

Visual Description:  Lamenting his loss.

TOBHO  =  BOOTH,  ECYDA  =  DECAY,  SWNIEU  =  UNWISE,  LONAGO  =  LAGOON   —   Giving us:  BHDEWELA

Clue/Question:  When the vain guy lost his last tuft of hair, – – –

Prince William new hair in pictures: Bald Duke sports new hair cut ...

Answer:  HE BAWLED

(Lemme guess!  Hoyt came up with this one!  LOL!  For guys who went bald at an . . . early age, the rest of us, who still have hair – but could still potentially lose it – are “vain”.  Yer uncle still has a decent head of hair.  And, it is a source of pride.  But, I’d be gorgeous even if I went totally bald.  LOL!

No new clue words to be found today.  Three of the jumbles appear  to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “tobho” sometime in the past.  The answer letter layout was concise and cryptic eight letter jumble.

Fine bathroom scene cartoon.  That’s a pretty nice last tuft of hair.  But, when it gets down to that last little bit you’re better off shaving it off anyway.  Like William did.  I like the brush on the counter – with hairs in it, of course – and the tear running down the guy’s cheek.  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Courage is doing what you’re afraid to do.  There can be no courage unless you’re scared.”   —   Eddie Rickenbacker

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 05/31/20

Pete Flynn, legendary Mets groundskeeper who started working with ...

Visual Description:  Dealing with weed was a chronic problem!

LAIHEN  =  INHALE,  CSTIEB  =  BISECT,  VERORF  =  FERVOR,  SANDHI  =  DANISH,  TEMELT  =  METTLE,  XFERPI  =  PREFIX   —   Giving us:  IHSEFERDNITLEPIX

Clue/Question:  The soccer stadium’s groundskeeper was an – – –

Pre-Answer:  Four Words  (6-letters) (2-letters) (3-letters) (5-letters)

Groundskeeper Willie Leak has been tending to RFK Stadium for 50 ...

Answer:  EXPERT IN HIS FIELD

(And, his assistant was outstanding in his field!  There are scads of puns in the sphere of fields.  It’s really a wide range.  Hey!  Do you kids think Zonker Harris would make a good groundskeeper, or greenskeeper?  He knows a thing or two about grass and weed, ya know?

Just yesterday, I received an updated version of the world famous ralis95 clue word database!  Despite that, or maybe just coincidentally, we appear to have two brand new clue words today, in “danish” and “mettle”.  Danish actually seems vaguely familiar to me.  Can our diligent research readers confirm, or deny, my suspicion?  We’ve seen the jumble “laihen” sometime in the past, but the other five jumbles came up as new for me.  It took me a few seconds to put together “bisect”.  The answer letter layout was an impressive sixteen letter jumble.  For about two seconds, I was a little intimidated by it.  But, I knew that the final answer started with a vowel, which helped me to see EXPERT.  The rest fell right into place.

Fine stadium cartoon.  The expert really gets right down into it.  Hopefully, we’ll be seeing some sporting events real soon.  I can’t get too jazzed for NASCAR, Korean baseball, or German league soccer.  I need me some MLB!  Be well, stay safe and do good, folks.)   —   YUR
