Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/24/19

With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.”   —   Eleanor Roosevelt

(I had a bitch of a time getting this one started.  I suspected the C was the E, but I couldn’t rule out the J.  Finally, I saw DAY and AND, and then NEW came into view.  I wasn’t seeing the name at all.  I played with E_EAN, but didn’t see Eleanor until I was nearly finished.  I also saw the I as O, but was thinking the last name was GOODsomething, or WOODsomething.  It’s a little ironic as 3 inches away, in Today in History, was something about President Franklin D. Roosevelt meeting Churchill in Casablanca, in 1943.  But, I always do these puzzles before reading the funnies and all the other good stuff on those pages.

I think I might just have been having a bad day.  I – unfortunately – woke up around 5:50AM, and then set my alarm for 8:00.  Had trouble getting back to sleep, but eventually did.  Heard the alarm, but decided to sleep a little more.  Woke up at 9:46!  Raining like a SOB, after a number of sub zero days.  Snow was pretty much gone, but there were still icy patches on the sidewalks, for my morning Wally walk.  I came to this one stretch of sidewalk, on a busy road, that had both ponding and ice, so I opted to walk on the lawn/dirt to the side of it.  I could tell that the upper layer of soil was squishy, but it was still frozen underneath.  I thought I had it all under control, when I stepped on this very slight grade.  I fell on my ass.  The handle of the umbrella went into the mud.  My leash hand went into the mud.  I held onto Wally though.  I was able to get up right away, but felt like I twisted my right knee.  I was a little in shock, a little in pain, and a lot pissed.  I was able to complete our walk.  The knee isn’t perfect, but I don’t think there’s any major damage.  I had to do some emergency laundry, as there was mud all over my ass and pants leg.  Then, I breezed through the Jumble, but got hung up on this bad boy.  Before I knew it it was noon, and my son was coming in the door, for lunch.  Holy Crap!  I had no idea that it was that late.  I made him a sandwich, and then got back to the Cryptoquote.  I’m also getting some little chest twinges.  Such a bother.  Oh, well.  I’ve gotten all that off my chest.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive.  One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.”   —   Eleanor Roosevelt

(I love the very purposeful association of curiosity to life!  Without curiosity – with just accepting all you are told – you are merely existing.  Don’t ever be afraid to question things.  Don’t be afraid to live.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If man is to be liberated to enjoy more leisure, he must also be prepared to enjoy this leisure fully and creatively.”   —   Eleanor Roosevelt

(Beyond sleeping more, I cannot promise to be anymore prepared in the enjoyment of my leisure time.  OK, so I’m a lazy SOB!  So sue me!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

It’s so much easier to be enthusiastic than to reason.”   — Eleanor Roosevelt

(Spoken like someone who never had to worry about how they’re going to make this month’s mortgage payment!  It’s SO much easier to be enthusiastic . . . when there’s actually something to be enthusiastic about.  At least her husband created a large scale work program.  Are you listening, B.O.???)   — YUR
