Marianne - you never cease to astound me - congratulations on yesterday's fantastic score tou're definitely the brainy one in the family.
Which one of your family is the 7/28 in today's grid? ;-D
Well, assuming I made no mistakes in entering the grid, there are 293 words today.
I so badly want to make 'esoteric' . . .
poo, it won't take Aries
293 ??? i have 82. lol.
an 8 for 55 - m & plural
huh...oprah is not yet a noun
9 for 90: begins with H
4x7 so far -- don't have the 8 yet.
My 7s are 40, 36, 36, 28
an h-8 for 55 7 an r-8 for 60
!oops: 7 = &
Don't give me puzzles - I didn't sleep Fr. night, went to a guild meeting until 4:00pm Sat., and just awoke after sleeping the sleep of the dead - haven;t had 7hrs. sleep since I was a kid..... and now you want me to figure out a seven letter word? I don't think so.
But isn't my little sister(MAL) a clever little girl?
<off to try to figure out this clue>
I have 2 M8s -- 50 & 55, both start with the same 4 ltrs
It begins S and means 'lively and spirited' ;-D
Fixit....that would be with two__s in the middle? Yep, that's my girl.
There must be oodles of big words out there -- I'm usually slow to get those and I have 8x7 and 4x8 and I don't have the R8/60 or the H9/90 yet!
It's almost 2 AM here and I need to go to bed!!
Gah, I keep trying to make 'croissant'...
i just want the 9 before sleep nabs me
Ah, man. It won't take orisha/orishas.
2 h's for 8-55 but no 9. 132/2133. g'night. what a difference sans caffeine...
oh, the r for 60 - think of what you do to a fire that's died down
4t8 - how many letters is your fire word?
85 for 1081. Still no sign of the M 8 ltr for 55 and its plural, the H 9 ltr for 90, the R for 60, or the 2 x H's 8 ltr for 55. Here's my breakdown for so far:
a x 1
c x 14
e x 1
g x 8
h x 12
i x 1
m x 3
n x 2
o x 1
p x 3
r x 7
s x 25
t x 7
Boa noite a todos.
there's also an M 8 for 50
140 words for 2310 points....
11 x A
20 x C
3 x E
5 x G
20 X H
1 x I
1 x K
6 x M
3 x N
3 x O
7 x P
16 x R
30 x S
14 x T
So far, 10/7s, 4/8s only one 9
Mulhe - The fire word is 7 for 44, plural is 8 for 60
Oops - that should've been mulhermujer - seem to have lost the end of your name - sorrry about that.
Why isn't mooish a word? :)
Marianne - goodmorning, Babe - wow! yesterday - you really made up for not playing all week.. wonderful score.
How's your game doing, today?
What letter does the fire word start with. Please
Is the 9 two words joined up or one proper big word????
The 9 letter word is a 5 letter word with a suffix added
hmmm, haven't been here for ages!
First word I got was a 9Letter H word - it's an adjective smaller word of 5 letters and add 4 letters to make 9Letter word!
Fire Word easy - don't think too hard, starts with R.
Got the fire word. Still working on the 9 letter H word.
Still looking for the 9 letter H word. A clue please. :)
thanks Goddess got the fire word
Ah! Got it!! Isn't it weird how you can look for something for hours and then suddenly its as clear as day?
Hi Christine, I have only just come on to the grid, I had to go out for a while.I am on 53 words but they are coming fast & furious.
Fixitfmly wants to know who the 7 letter 28 one in Christine's family is .Well it is definately me Marianne
Getting ready to tackle this one. Good

A - 11
C - 20
E - 3
G - 5
H - 17
I - 1
K - 1
M - 6
N - 4

I know there is more. Well try later
There is a 9-letter word for 72 points
You won't have to look far to find this 9-letter word.
Lawyer-1 thanks found it.
158 words 5.22 3000
Looks as if it will be quite a big puzzle today.
One of my favorite sandwiches ~ starts with H ~ 7 for 44
Thanks lawyer 1. I found it as well
Eyezzz Found that one, I can't begin to think what is in this sandwich!
eyezzz...the plural of the sandwich is 7 letters; the singular is 6.
Lawyer-1 thanks again you really are very helpful.
There's a 4-letter word with no vowels.
Sorry - 14x7.
My cats tend to caroom around a lot .. but the dictionary won't have it!
Is the 9 letter h word the 90 pointer or have I found another ? (some hopes!)
If you have a nine letter h word worth something other than 90 points, then I think you've found another.
I have at least 8 words starting with G.
Put a fifteenth 7 for 40 between the 40 and the 48.
Thanks Lawyer I got it. the 9 for 72
And a sixteenth seven for 40 before the first 40.
"At 05:55 am Christine said...
Oops - that should've been mulhermujer - seem to have lost the end of your name - sorrry about that."
That's OK. There was a discussion of my screen name during the last puzzle. Mul, mul, MM, mm, mulher, its all good :)
Good Afternoon chaz, it is 3:20 pm. Went to the movies with my sister. Back now. How are you doing with this game?
The only two words "without any vowels" that I know of are 'cwm' and 'crwth,' so I am trying to figure out what another one might be. What's the first letter, and what's the meaning of the word?
What does the 9 letter M word end with. I have the base word but cant find the ending.
I am not doing well finding the big words today :(
lawyer, does your 4 letter word with no vowels start with t? If so I have it too.
The word without any vowels is an expression of frustration or annoyance.
does the 2nd 9 letter H word start with HA?
what does the sixteenth and seventh 7 for 40 start with. Please
It does start with HA. Is there also an M for nine?
Can anyone tell me what the definition of the 9-letter H word is?
Thank You soho72, your definition totally helped for finding the 4 ltr T voweless word.
The 7th starts with an M, the 16th with a T.
You're welcome. I'm usually not very good at thinking up clues.
They don't take swear words, do they?
Peri - yes
I've only got 1 x9 letter h, the one for 90 - been off watching tv for a bit, back now.
Mine is being mean or stark conditions. Does anyone have a definition for the other one ?
eyezzzz, May I please have a clue for your favorite sandwich?
Anyone about ? I get the impression there are several 9 letter words. Is this true ?
Yes, but no one wants to help us :(
It sounds like there are 2xH, and maybe an M, but I'm very confused.
Peri....you cut deep! I've helped all day long!
Oh well it's nice to have a reply, I was feeling all alone here!
I have 8x8
lawyer-1, I have not been playing all day. I already had the 4 letter word with no vowels. Your clue for the 9 letter word for 72 has not helped me. But thanks anyway.
Peri, just get in your boat, but don't go far and you will have 72 points. Then meet me at the bar!
(That last sentence has nothing to do with the clue, but I decided to be a bit poetic.)
Hi all - does anybody know how many we are playing for today??
Someone said 293.
Oh my....! I'm on 264 and pretty much stuck. Thanks for the info Soho72 :o)
264? I can't get to 200!
Well, I am in the UK so I've probably got a six hour advantage on you! 267/5.1/4596 - but only one 9 :o(
lawyer-1, thanks for the clue on the 72 pointer!
I've yet to get 100 and I've been working hard for ages! Not fair ! Still cannot get the sandwiches either. (so I made my own :) )
Well I think I'd have to make my own too, because I don't believe they sell that particular type of sandwich over here...
Are there two 9 letter H words in this puzzle? How many 9 letter words are here
Is there really a 9 for 90 starting with an H. If so, may I please have a clue for it? :)
Nevermind, I already have it. Silly me. :)
I believe there is only one h-9, the other n starts with n. There is a h-8, though.
Whoops, that should read 'the other 9 starts with n'...
May I have the latest stats, please?
runningforhome, Thanks I have all of them.
I gave a clue for the h for 90 at 3.04 this time. I could still do with a sandwich clue - is it one of those pastrami on rye things ? (whatever that is.....)
Latest stats, please. So I can find out what I am missing. Is anyone here?
a clue for the sandwich is: a submarine sandwich or a po'boy
nope - still cannot get it, thanks for clue though, which h is it and does it go ho, ha or hi ?
...should equal 278 for 4759. If anyone would swop me for another clue for that pesky nx9 clue I'd be most grateful!
Phew how many hours did you spend on this, Kirsty ? :-(
ha ha ha!
Now if anybody is suggesting I am a sad old lady without a meaningful life of her own...well now...they could just be right! Too long dimwit, too long!
the 9n word is also the name of a laundry detergent
Thanks Oboy, I appreciate the help - is it the kind of detergent name I would know in the UK?
39 for 694 ( not too bad for 20 mins) but gotta get back to work.
Ok 41 for 702... out now
what? it won't take IHOP? :-)
Dimwit (feel very mean, calling you that), the sandwich starts with HO.
Thanks for your stats Kirsty1.
Whoops! I should have said ho ho ho!
Periwinkle, d'you still need the clue for H9/90?
Think of a word meaning 'stern', and add a fourletter suffix.
Hope this helps?
i tried that last night...back to the drawing board, then. thanks.
Christine. Thanks for the clue. I finally found the word
oh help. i was starting from the wrong h the whole time.
Christine, Thanks for your hint. I already found that word, with help from my sister.
Ok. I'm 129 for 1989. I'm going to bed. I hate my daughter for getting me hooked on this. I need help :)
My first time over 1,000. I can die happy. This was a good gid
can't see the n9. care to hint please?
I've been looking for quite awhile. :(
The n9 is a combo of a n4 and a s5. You have probably never heard the compound word they form.
thanks fnurt I'll keep looking. Sounds like a tough one.
Are there really SEVENTEEN O's? I have like 6...
Out of 8 N's I have 2, and out of 56 S's I have 29. Could you please give the meaning of the compound N 9 ltr word? That might help a lot.
lawyer gave a good clue earlier. something about getting in your boat and not going very far.
oh my gosh I found the n9!!!
I only have 5 o's.
I have 9 O's now. 4 of them start with OO!
6 o's 10 to go
Got it!!! Thanks All :)
OK, the R 8 ltr for 60 is totally eluding me. I know its what one does to a fire when it is dying. Beside properly putting it out (I'm a daughter of a forester), I can't seem to come up with a R word. Any more clues??
Wrong kind of fire! That threw me off too. Think fireplace.
sort of the opposite of putting it out ;)
*picturing a fireplace......* Arg, besides roaring, not getting it. Think of a fireplace as in its structure, function,...??
Mulher, think this way - you bank the fire, before you go to bed, and in the morning you RE,-,-,-,-,- it,
Hope this helps.
Remember - keep the home fires burning.
Oh!! Got it, Thanks All :)
122 for 1996. I gots to go. Gotta clear up the phone lines, and get some chores done. Thanks so much to everyone who provided clues. You made my game :):):)
