Today’s Cryptogram

From the Arkansas Gazette

TVRRVI S PQJM LO QCCFJQLX SXP S MVSIRH SNNVRQRV OLI CQOV RMSX S OVSJR LO IVSCQRH SXP QXPQBVJRQLX RMVIVUQRM. ---MVXIH S. LAVIJRIVVR

You can find this little fun word game, to combat early dementia and senility in us baby boomers, in several daily publications.

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 as puzzle solvers love to hear how you made out.

You can certainly send your solution to my private reply, or if you need a hint for today’s Cryptogram.

That wasn’t too hard. I made a lucky guess on the first two words, and managed to stumble through to the end in decent time. Couple of wrong turns, but not too bad.

Glad you liked it. Now, did you put your nose on the dot and watch the lady float through the hoop? ;)
