oh wait ..
i have both 7's .. i'm missing a six
and F6 should say ornamental feature on etc etc
I have 60 words with 3 6's for only 454. This aint an easy one, gang
You're missing P24 - which is arrow at the inner, and very broad at the other end - apparently
shortseer - So, both 7 letter words have the same definition and starting letter? Odd!
@jlm ... if you have one 7, then you have the other
Thanks shortseer. I never would have thought to try that second combo!
I knew that art history class would come in handy!
thanks for the help with the other P6
The 8-pointer has to start with one of the following:
A, B, H or T
Can we narrow it down any further?
It does not start with B. I have all 9 of those, and sadly no 8.
i'm missing lots of B's
I have 2xB4, 2xB5 and 1xB6
are all the missing ones 4's ?
forget that ... i do have all the B's written out on paper ... i've just forgotten to enter half the words!
No, you're missing 2 4s and 2 5s.
Assuming you have both singular and plural of the fish and the greek letter, the 5s you are missing are a vegetable (and maybe it's 4 letters singular?) and a concrete. You would then either be missing a 4 letter hebrew letter or a verb that happens in Las Vegas.
And your last post makes more sense! The Bs seemed pretty easy this time, so I was surprised you had missed them!!!
Still down with the flu? It's been a bad one for you it seems. Hope you feel better soon! :)
babble is good for the flu
i can write out the grid and keep myself occupied while tucked up in bed.
Of course, if i then forget to then put all my word list into the computer ... :(
okay Im missing a 4 and 5 B. have the veggies, the letters, the fishies and the Vegas word; what else am I missing?
The hebrew letter and the concrete.
nope got the hebrew letter
ok now for the concrete! tks jlm
and found the concrete
you know Ive eaten plenty of hohos in my life!!
I'm missing one A
A4/5 plant & drug derived from it
A5/6 essential oil(s)
Anyone got anything else?
shortseer - I've got those same As and would love to find the missing one!
steve - So, you have all the B4s now?
So, can I have help with the Ns? I have
4-plural of part of an insect
a 5 N for nothingness
N6 write something down
all the b's thanks jlm
A clue for the 8 would make it duller than it already is...
Well that got me trying to enter the 8 as some variant of apathy (apatheee, apatheal, apatheae, ...)
But i've stopped that nonsense now as i've discovered the final A word is a simple A4 :)
One more request for help - On the Ls:
I have 7x4, 2x5, 1x6
Am I missing a 4 or a 5????
you are missing an L5
probably the plant (variant spelling)
I'm missing a T4
Any clues as to what i'm missing?
I think you're missing a Te 4 - either a Hebrew letter or the New Year...
all done :D
okay lets have a clue for the 8
It starts with H, it's 65 points, and it means to make dull. It's obscure.
Here's a neat reference link:
is there really a 6 for 24 P?
yup there is :)
ok atalante give me a hint
never mind found it thanks anyway
phew! its a silly word and hard to give a hint for!
it's the opp. of logos
oh you - oops - found it. i should read further down after logging on.
how many words are there
oh! this is a p-33-6
I'm missing two Ss - can anyone help? I've got:
ST 3x4, 2x5
I'm way behind you, but have one SO-5. Can't help you with the other one, though, but likely others can!
thanks Boo :) :)
Any clues for the I7's? WHich I?
the one on the left
Thanks! With a little noodling, I got both of 'em!
there are great clues for the i-7 words earlier today. Mentioned two or three times, I think!
never mind ;-)
126 /1254 :)
marigold, are you here. You have mail.
I have one e/5 for 16. May I have a clue for the one E word.?
It's a Greek letter, periwinkle.
Can anyone help with the last M? I have the candy/spice and the irritation.
Never mind, I got it. Can't believe I couldn't see that!
shotsheer, I am so sorry that you are sick. But, I really appreciate your clues. Thanks so much. Hope you feel better soon. :)
runningforhome, Thanks got the 2nd E.
runningforhome: a very short skirt
I am missing an I (eye) word. I have the 2 seven letter words. 2 4/4. and one 5/10. May I have a hint for the missing word, please.
I must be addicted.
I've come back for a look at the log even though i finished this grid ages ago.
@ periwinkle ... do you have the i4 that means:
"South American freshwater dolphin (I. Boliviensis). It is ten or twelve feet long, and has a hairy snout."
I'm glad you appreciate the clues.
Personally, i think it's more fun playing with a bit of group cooperation.
I appreciate the help i get too :)
And if i take the trouble to write out a definition, why then my vocabulary will probably benefit!
Gee I'm really going to miss it when i go back to once-a-week Babbling.
I'm sooo confused... I have two questions... I don't know if this is a clue for one word or more? E6 - opposite of logos - worth 24 points.. I have what I think is the answer, but it's worth 33 points?
Second question... was there a clue for a lette of the Greek alphabet, M5 or M6? I don't know of such a Gr.letter??
Oops... that made me seem even more inept.. I have E5/16 and P6/33... two good, acceptabl;e words, but not a 6/24, so now where am I.
I think I'll get back to the Ls and Os.
Christine....I have a B 6/24.
It is various species of small brightly colored long finned fresh water fishes of the genus. It is like the second greek letter starting with a B the, just add on letter in the middle
Oh, Marigold, thank you...I have the fish, but I can't see the connection to Logos...or am I still up a tree on this one?
74 words for 740 points - perhaps I should reread the chat, see if I can find some more words.
Thanks again, luv.
110/1081. I give up.
You hav no idea how badly I want to make 'tattoo'!
