Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/21/19

I consider every drummer that ever played before me an influence, in every way.”   —   Buddy Rich

(I was a little surprised to see that this is the first Buddy Rich quote used in the Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  It’s long overdue, but we welcome Buddy to the Cryptoquote Club!  He was a fantastic drummer, and quite a character.   I remember seeing him on the Merv Griffin Show, the Mike Douglas ShowJohnny Carson, and also on shows like The Muppet Show, Happy Days, and Here’s Lucy.  He played with a lot of the big bands in the ’30s and ’40s, and was also leader of his own bands.  He also did a lot of sessions work with a number of top musicians.  He was a bit of a tough guy too, both professionally and in his personal life.  He had fights with Frank Sinatra, but they became lifelong friends.  Seeing his name brought back a lot of great memories!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A little government and a little luck are necessary in life, but only a fool trusts either of them.”   —   P.J. O’Rourke

(Nowadays, it seems we have too much government and not enough luck.  I remember when the Republicans used to run on the idea of a smaller Federal Government.  Then George W. Bush came along!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.”   —   Socrates

(I guess that makes me fairly wise then!  There is always so much more to learn.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Delayed Cryptoquote “Spoiler” – 11/18/19

It is an extra dividend when you like the girl you’ve fallen in love with.”   —   Clark Gable

(Yeah, love can be more of a chemical thing than a meeting of the minds.  The ones you actually like are the ones you should end up with.  The romance angle has a way of fading, but the best friend aspect is for life.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Headmasters have powers at their disposal with which Prime Ministers have never yet been invested.”   —   Winston Churchill

(I spun my wheels for quite a while on this one.  I did have the E correct, and I was pretty certain of NEVER.  But I initially thought the J was the I, and the N was the S, and the Z was the A.  I didn’t straighten myself out until I finally recognized the author.  Even so the puzzle took me some work..  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Singing is a way of escaping.  It’s another world.  I’m no longer on earth.”   —   Edith Piaf

(Hard to believe this is our first quote from Edith Piaf!  She is just so iconic.  This lady was a big deal in the 20th Century.  We welcome her to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire.”   —   Oprah Winfrey

(Great quote!  Although, I don’t really consider falling from the high wire tumbling.  Tumbling is more like somersaults, or tripping over something.  Me fall down, go boom.  Falling from a high wire can be downright fatal.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
