Almost 'anthrax', almosr 'drastic'... oh well, lots of other sixes... onward we go....

92 words for 1041...enuf for tonight
Marianne - are you playing??
Christine, do you ever sleep? Did you finally get the the "geometrical" word from yesterday's grid?
Hi, Periwinkle.... no, never did get that one - did you?
I don't sleep much at night, but I'm retired, so I can nap, if I'm sleepy. You too keep long/late hours on this board ... I come and go, here, leaving to read when I run out of words..... but I always come back.
Christine, Yes, the word was terete. It is a botanical word and a second clue helped me. During the week I only come on after work but on the weekends I sometimes have more time.
Found a t/7/36.
That word!! it drove me crazy - I googled all the words of the clue, both individually and as a group... nothing! But I did bookmark some interesting sources, to read later this weekend; and I learn at least a half-dozen new words, each week.
Wish I knew what the 9/72 started with :(.
does anyone know how many words are in this puzzle. I have 65 so far, but I just started. Which means there are 500+ words. Just kidding. Hope not.
i have 101 and am struggling
marigold are you here?
get in there the 9!!
Ricey, what does the 9 start with please?
Also what does the 7/32 start with please. I have found the 7/36. Thanks.
Ricey, Thanks, I will keep looking for a little while and then take a break.
no way! this is the fastest i ever found a 9. yay!
:( if the p was where the t is, praxis would've been a bootiful word.
That is all the 7/8/9 letter words. I'm missing 3 6 letter words.
yeah not much help to Runningforhome are we ;)
jlm_mi, any clues for teh other 7s?
Also missing the T 6/24s
just found another T7 Youngster, starts TA
Well done. how many points? And is it a common word?
yeh, just got one for 32!
I'm stopping for now. 6.30pm here - need food..... Will be back on in a few hours no doubt!
it's 28 points. Quite common but a related word more common..what's the 32 second letter? you must be in old blighty too then
TA... Scotland actually :)
fit1.....Thanks for the clue for the 7/32. I got it
jlm_mi, I found another s/6/27.
Thanks, found it! I'm still baffled on that last D word.
I'm missing 1 D, 1P and 2S. Also, 1x4, 1x5 and 2x6. Just don't know which lengths go with which letters!
Found another P/6/27. It comes right after the P/6/33.
The P you're missing is a 6 for 27. I'm missing the second P6 for 24, and that E7 is eluding me (and pissing me off!). :)
jlm, I have 4 S6's. 27/24/27/24
meeker - I think I got that P7 just as you were posting. The E7 is an odd word, but satisfying to find! It builds from an E4. There is also an E5 plural of this word. The E7 is the person who uses the E4.
Oh, and thank you fnurt! That should help direct my search.
can you give a clue for the P7 please
The clue is... there is no P7.
Is there a clue for the 7/28. please
found an e/7/36
Neat word, jlm_mi. Thanks, and glad you found the other P6!
got the 7/36 E
I need a clue for the T 7/28. please
May I have a clue please for the t/7/28 and t/7/32. Thanks.
got the t/7/28
marigold, you have mail!
fit1 hinted at the T/7/32 earlier. The T/7/28 think of Hinduism or Buddhism. The T/7/36 is a word for walking about.
thank jlm-mi got it
your welcome :)
marigold, I only have 98.
I have 5 A words. Are there any more?
does anyone know how many words there are for each letter today?
See the 9:23 a.m. clue. I can't find the 6th A either.
thanks fnurt. I didn't check all of the log before I posted.
found the last A! Wasn't sure it was a word but it was! Yea.
marigold, do you have all the A's?
the last A is a 5 for 10 points.
I need help with P, S and T words.
marigold are you still here?
fnurt, did you find the last A?
The A that I was missing was a 4-4 I am rather ashamed about. :)
I am glad that you have all of them now :).
Does everyone else have the E7 word? I've got the T7s, but not the E
youngster, do you have the e/4 for 6. If so, build on that. Look at the clue at 3:04 pm. Hope this helps.
periwinkle, nope. Got E 4/4 4/5 5/12
periwinkle, I must be missing something very obvious. There must be a 'p' in it, but I can't get any combination to work.
periwinkle, thanks. At last got the 3 linked E's. Don't fancy that as a job title though!
Finally got over 1000. 1am - going to bed.
113 - 1334. Trying to do I don't know what. I should be happy with that. But of course I'm not :)
Anyone want to help me with the rest of the As? I only have a 5/10 and a 4/4 (in that order).
Hey, jlm_mi, have you found that pesky d yet? My list of d's matches the one you posted earlier. If I've counted right, it should be a d-5 -- is that correct?
I haven't found it. I'm missing a 4 and a 5, and I'm missing an S and a D. I don't know which is the 4 and which is the 5, but I just can't find any other Ds for the life of me! And I thought I tried all the possible combos for 4-letter S words with no luck.
I have all but the d, and count 15 s-4s.
Thanks, I also have 15xS4.
So, 5-letter S words? I have:
You're missing an SE.
Okay, that's weird. I must have miscounted my S's -- your list gave me an ST that I didn't have. So now I have 138 words but still only 17 D's.
I am missing 2 E. I have 2 ed, 3 ep, 1 es and 1 et. What am I missing?
peri, you are missing an "ei". But I too am missing the last one
I have 9 st/5. Do I have more than you Jim_mi?
Would you put curses on me and my family if I told you that I just recounted from the solver list and there are only 17 Ds, but there are actually 25 P words? I don't know if one of the Ps looked like a D or what, but I somehow had it wrong.
fit1 - I have 8xST5. But I can't be missing an ST5 and an SE5 unless the solver is wrong, but it's the enable solver that gave this count.
never mind Jim_mi, I miscounted. I have 8
Phew! That's good to know. :)
I found the P I was missing. An easy one! So, just an SE5 to find.
Jim_mi. Where do you go to see the enable solver :)
There's a boggle/tangleword solver that has the enable dictionary. I found it by a yahoo search.
marigold, it looks like there are 25 P word :(.
jlm_mi, And here I was so happy that I had all of the P's. I will never find the last P and that is okay.
Jim_mi, I found the site, but it has all the words already solved. Where did you go to get the numbers of each letter? I don't want to cheat, after all. LOL
xtras was my last-ditch effort for the night :D
95/1135; see you tomorrow.
