Mental P Mama just wrote what I was starting to type!

Either great minds think alike or she has a shadow...

Cricket said...

Cripes... I was going to make some comment about the word puzzles, went back to look at the answers, and saw you named a post of mine here. Good Lord, that is my decaffeinated brain for ya.

So anyway, thank you, and congratulations to everyone.

In an ironic twist, I found my post also linked to a website for custom builders... the types who build the modern "starter castles" I can't stand. I guess someone read only the title.

I never would have gotten the puzzles I didn't get the first try. The only forehead slapper was "no one is perfect."

Thanks again.

Even after you told us what the answers were, it took a close look at the puzzles to get it. I think I need to get me one of those word puzzle books and practice for the next quiz. :)
