You can find this little fun word game, to combat early dementia and senility in us baby boomers, in several daily publications, unfortunately they are copyrighted so we can't use them here. So, we're just going to make up our own.
The way it works is a letter stands for another letter.
For example: AXYDLBAAXR is LONGFELLOW (does not apply to today's cryptogram).
Beware, the game is very addictive. If this is your first time, don't be intimidated.
Send me a private reply if you need a hint for todays Cryptogram.
PLEASE DO NOT post the answer in general comments, but DO post your time and any tips you might give the group on how you solve these puzzles.
You can certainly send your solution to my private reply or if you need a hint for todays Cryptogram.
Solving the puzzle under 8 minutes is good, under 6 very good, under 4 excellent and under two "you're a pro!"
Those of you looking for an added challenge can try to solve one sentence at a time, i.e. solve the entire first line, then go to the second line etc.
If you need a little help you can copy the cryptogram and paste it to Hals Helper below:
Its easier to work on the puzzle without having to use your pencil.
Solution to our last puzzle:

You asked for hints or tips in last one, so I’ll add another here:
another help when doing these is to note where the apostrophes are- and go through known apostrophe words like ‘you’re’ we’re’ ‘aren’t’ etc- That can help for certain cryptograms- once you figure out the apostrophe word, you can then fill in the other same letters throughout-
Yes that’s a good tip. There r 2 words with apostrophes in today’s puzzle.
that cryptohelper link is a big help- better than paper and pencil- thanks for that-
Where can I post my response. Under 4 here.
3 min. 1 *ahem* blind turn.
I’d like to be placed on your list please. These are so fun.
we can’t- Nikos will post the answer in the next riddle-
3+....as usual the author is ‘clear as mud’ while being half true....
Another easy one today.
2 1/2 min.
Contractions are our friends.
Nice one for a lazy Sunday. Thanks for making these for us.
About 3 minutes. Last name threw me off, so I went for the contractions, and I have to say... he’s not wrong! LOL!
Please add me to your list. Thank you!
Here’s one for you:
