Burn piles are the made beds of the yard.  Nothing tidies up a yard like fire.”   —   Rheta Grimsley Johnson

(Definitely not a city girl!  If you had asked me, prior to my posting this, if this was the first Rheta Johnson quote we’ve had, I would’ve said:  Yes!  But, her name was already in my list of Tags, so I guess we’ve had one of her quotes before.  WordPress is pretty good about linking posts with the same author.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Very Tough) Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/09/12

Asking your neighbors to tweet the ‘news’ is not unlike asking your Cocker Spaniel to buy groceries.”   —   Rheta Grimsley Johnson

(I was spinning my wheels on this one, for a good bit!  I suspected that CDP was “THE”, but I just couldn’t imagine CAPPC as “TWEET”, especially before “THE”.  I guess I’m just too much of a 20th Century kinda guy!  I finally got the ball rolling when I decided it was a good bet that the L was I, and that the first word – and eleventh – ended in ING, the LR was likely “IS”, and the JGC was likely “NOT”.  From there, things started falling into place, but there was till plenty of work to do.  Nothing stood out as a gimme.  And, the author name wasn’t really any help either!  But, I was very surprised to see that this was not the first time she has appeared in a Cryptoquote Spoiler!  Another one of her quotes was used as a Cryptoquote on 03/25/09, and – for whatever reason – I posted the Spoiler on 03/26/09.  Presumably, shortly after midnight, but who knows.  That was over 3 years ago!  You can find it by Googling:  Rheta Grimsley Johnson Quotes, and scrolling to the bottom of the page.  It reads:  Rheta Grimsley Johnson  <<  Unclerave’s Wordy Weblog.  But of course, that could move very soon, as I’m sure queries on today’s spoiler will likely exceed the earlier, and easier, quote.  I hope you guys had as much fun with today’s Cryptoquote as I did.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I forgot to mention that it’s a very hip and clever quip!     YUR

(Mega-Late) Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/25/09

Be careful what you say to children.  When their bones are brittle and their hair silver, they will quote you in their hearts.”   — Rheta Grimsley Johnson
