Christmas, my child, is love in action.  Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas. ”   —   Dale Evans Rogers

(The purest definition of Christmas ever told.  And, from a great lady!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Season’s Greetings Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/24/14

Have a Happy Christmas and enjoy this Holiday Season.”   —   Your Puzzle People

(Sounds like warm and wise advice to me!  Be . . . joyful and do good, my friends.)   —   YUR

The excellence of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than in its value.”   —   Charles Dudley Warner

(Lost on far too many people these days.  One of the things I really like about the Cryptoquote is that it introduces me to writers who I’d previously never heard.  This man led a very interesting life, and was friends with Mark Twain.  And yes, Art.  I was able to figure out the name today without having to look him up.  There weren’t any other Ds or Ws in the quote, but they just seemed to be the most logical letters.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  FINE ART

(Now, this is a great pun!  Not a lot of Fine Arts majors become cops, I bet.  After banking, I looked into it, but by then I was too old.  The wife would’ve crapped a brick anyway.  She didn’t even want me to be a guard at the county jail, or even be a limo driver.  Oh, well.  No new clue words today!  We did have a few new jumbles though.  Only the one for “evoke” had already been used, by my records.  The answer letter layout pretty good, for only seven letters.  The cartoon is fun.  I like the glasses on the Mona Lisa!  And, the pot-belly on the cop.  Fun for Monday!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

My son has taken up meditation – at least it’s better than sitting down doing nothing.”   —   Max Kauffmann

(I wonder if ol’ Max would make the same crack about somebody praying?  Some people never want to leave their comfort zone.  Expand your horizons, folks.  There’s a big world out there.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future.”   —   Alex Haley

(Some aspects of family actually hold us back, but we’d rather wear the rose colored glasses.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
