3KCBWDAY5 The Something Different Post




Let's play a game. This may look like a bunch of numbers, but it's so much more. It's a Cryptoquote. Each number represents a letter. The number is always that letter, for example if the number 2 represents the letter E, then all 2s are Es. Your objective is to break the code and reveal the quote and it's author. Hint: The first word is only one letter, so that narrows down what that word could be.

Ready?

I will put the answer in tomorrow's post.  I hope everything lines up OK on your screen. It looks fine on mine, but that doesn't mean it was fine on everyone's.

Thanks everyone! I'm off to see the other blogs. I can't wait to see how creative everyone was.

Aaagghh. I'm terrible at crytoquotes. No patience. No patience at all. Must send this to my sister.

Excellent cryptoquote! It took me a few minutes but I got it!

Betty said...

I got it, too. I do them every day, but this one almost stumped me until I realized it was about knitting. Duh!

I used to love things like this when I was a kid. Happy memories! (Me-now is up past midnight and probably shouldn't be trying to solve cryptoquotes...)

This looks like fun...and I look forward to coming back to find out the answer. :-)
