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.
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. Puzzle solvers love to hear if you found the CG challenging or easy.
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!"
If some of you are looking for an added challenge, try to solving today's puzzle one sentence or even one word at a time, i.e. solve the entire first line (or word), then go to the second line (or word) etc.
If you need a little help you can copy the cryptogram and paste it to Hals Helper below:
You can then work on the puzzle without using pen and paper.
Solution to our last puzzle:

Very cute. 5 minutes. Kept working the 3 letter words until they fell into place and allowed other words to be guessed,
Did you want around having it end USA or did it just happen that way? Very apt after a rousing SOTU address.
that was meant to be did you work to make it end USA?
Hahah!!!!! Very observant...
Just under 5 min.
Had to really work the little gray cells this morning.
That’s good for you!
Two minutes. And being that I’m divorced, I got a chuckle out of it.
