Todays Wordle is in the grid. No hints or clues or spoilers!
1:11 am
grannyrose

hey soodle
1:12 am
justafreep

With 6 Ts in the grid, I wonder... what's the most of any one letter in a grid anyone can remember? 6 seems like a lot, but I wonder if there have been more Es at some point....
1:12 am
grannyrose

hey ya freep
1:13 am
justafreep

howdy
1:13 am
grannyrose

did you check out my new avatar?
1:13 am
harpjane

I assume the same letter could appear 25 times?
1:14 am
grannyrose

JANE !! wash your mouth out...loll
1:15 am
grannyrose

dang, icon/avatar hasn't translated well.
1:15 am
harpjane

It's an awfully big icon, but it's pretty!
1:16 am
grannyrose

sorry jane.
1:16 am
harpjane

found a water mammal
1:16 am
grannyrose

the pic you see here is not the pic in my account. no0t sure what happened.
1:17 am
grannyrose

the pic here is of my birthday cake with the candles 70
1:18 am
harpjane

I saw it in your account. don't know what happened either. Are you 70? I just turned 70 last week.
1:18 am
harpjane

70 is the new 30....
1:18 am
justafreep

I shudder at 25 of the same letter.
1:18 am
grannyrose

so did i. last Friday
1:19 am
harpjane

well, it's just a theoretical possibility.....
1:19 am
grannyrose

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HARPJANE !! xx

1:20 am
grannyrose

1:22 am

1:25 am
grannyrose

are you catching up with dizgrannie?
1:36 am
harpjane

Any babbler in the Perth Area, would be fun to see! We might have a stopover in Sydney also.
1:37 am
grannyrose

you'll have to try and workout how to get in touch with diz. and Sydney, there's lickety, MrP, and Andree
2:01 am
Soodle

Sorry Rose. At this hour of the morning i tend to multi task!
4:52 am
mattygroves

Today, the word I started with in Wordle is in the grid, as is the second word I tried, which turned out to be the word. Two word games working in synergy!
5:43 am
Scrabbler

Wow, matty.
5:56 am
ChampFit

matty, now I feel like I cheated, but got it in 2 thanks to your statement! ;)
5:58 am
Scrabbler

It took me 4 plays
6:01 am

good morning - diving in
6:02 am
Scrabbler

hi IG
6:03 am
ChampFit

Good morning! I'm a little over halfway. Feeling dizzy from this...words are coming from too many different directions!
6:05 am
ItalianGreyhound

might be a record grid for Ts
6:06 am
Scrabbler

Ts are everywhere.
6:07 am
ChampFit

R's too. I think I'm typing on one and it pops up on another square.
6:14 am
ItalianGreyhound

TS finished - need coffee
6:21 am
Scrabbler

And I must get ready for work. Good job, IG.
6:23 am

7:21 am

are there any pt words?
7:22 am
BzznBea

no
7:22 am
hurshy

phew
7:22 am
hurshy

ooh got the 9 and 10!!!!
7:23 am
hurshy

i suppose i should also have asked about ps, but i don't THINK there are those
7:28 am
hurshy

gosh, that's a lot of S words
7:29 am
BzznBea

Just 40
7:29 am
BzznBea

50
7:29 am
hurshy

yeah, i know, we've had more, lol
7:29 am
hurshy

i'm just at that stage where i'm so proud of all the ones i've found and can't believe there are still more
7:30 am
hurshy

only 3 more now, that's not bad
7:44 am

hello all
7:57 am
MollyL

*All waves back
8:02 am
saanichcat

morning Molly, hi lindy
8:08 am
funhs

not found in the dictionary but it's found on the cheat list
8:09 am
BzznBea

What is the cheat list?
8:09 am
funhs

the list of words found on the clue page
8:11 am
hokie carla

top row gray. bam!
8:11 am
MollyL

Somebody needs to tell Lickety his list is now the "cheat list" 😊
8:12 am
BzznBea

I just don't inderstand that entire statement.
8:15 am
MollyL

My take is that it's on Lickety's list, but there is no definition when you click on the ? next to the word.
8:16 am
funhs

On the clue page there are links to 4 letter, 5 letter etc word lists. There are words there that don't work in the grid. That's all I'm saying and it seems odd.
8:17 am
rbud

you mean like the A to Z lists?
8:17 am
rbud

you mean like the A to Z lists?
8:18 am
funhs

yeah
8:19 am
aslindy

Think of those lists as dictionaries of just words of that length. Not lists of words in the game.
8:20 am
rbud

I figure A to Z lists are likely newer (or more frequently updated) than Enable, which is what this game uses, and not even the newest version of Enable at that.
8:22 am
funhs

Thanks for the explaination
8:50 am
hokie carla

well, was moving right along at graying tiles on 1st pass which never happens for me, but then I got to the first R.
8:51 am
BzznBea

It is a pleasant gird today.
8:53 am
hokie carla

well, now I'm at the P which is not so pleasant. really only one way to go unless there are PT and PS.
8:54 am
rururocks

nope all pa's
8:55 am
hokie carla

interesting, thanks. have only found 8.
8:55 am
hokie carla

so maybe some big ones there
8:56 am
rururocks

there are a couple big ones
8:59 am
hokie carla

found 2 more p's. will have to come back later for the big ones.
9:00 am
rururocks

i have a great clue when you're ready
9:01 am
hokie carla

what is the stat(s)?
9:02 am
rururocks

pa9/60 and pa 10 / 77
9:03 am
BzznBea

9:04 am
hokie carla

9:05 am
rururocks

when a church goes through priests you then can figure out the pa/9
9:05 am
rururocks

hi welki..
9:07 am
hokie carla

wow, barely got half of the top S
9:08 am
hokie carla

this is not a pleasant grid, bea
9:08 am
rbud

and here I thought it would involve what the minister had for dinner....
9:09 am
hokie carla

well, the pa9 this... yours is easier, rbud 😜
9:10 am
rururocks

i try to minister the best clues possible
9:11 am
hokie carla

that's punny. I can't even come up with one.
9:22 am
rururocks

you'd have to get to altared states to start punning this early
9:24 am
Shirlockc

ruru is enshrined as the best punster in my bible!
9:25 am

Personally, I thought it was clever.
9:34 am

you can't please them all molly.. i learned that a long time ago

Yes, that's true. And clever clues are no longer the favorites. People like them really easy these days.

OJ really didn't need to weigh in on that.

madonna's boyfriend is 27 years old. I'm not afraid of him
10:25 am
MollyL

I would say so is Jada's but I'm afraid I'd get slapped.
10:25 am
hokie carla

I heard it was one of Jaden's friends, is he that old now?
10:27 am
rururocks

I'm amazed OJ had time to put out a statement since he's consistently hard at work finding Nicole's killer
10:27 am
MollyL

Jaden is 23 and he still has whacked out hair
10:28 am
MollyL

And please. Having a sexual relationship with one of your kid's friends is just ICK.
10:28 am
rururocks

madonna is just icky
10:29 am
MollyL

Jada is the one who had a sexual relationship with her kid's friend.
10:29 am
MollyL

Maybe it's something about names that end in A.
10:30 am
hokie carla

yeah, my 21 year old told me about Jaden's friend and I was thinking, that is just super icky.
10:30 am

They should have.

10:52 am

not sure Chris Rock would agree with that
10:53 am

I don't know how people in the audience weren't laughing when he did that vessel of love thing in his acceptance speech.
10:53 am

chris rock should have walked up and slapped him after he said that

Tickets to Chris Rocks upcoming tour are selling like hotcakes.
10:55 am
hokie carla

godthaab, my mom was telling me how kids in her area (the appalachians) were not getting school lunches this summer, so I'm guessing it's related to that. what a shame.
10:56 am
MollyL

They have to make up for all that money they gave away during COVID, so hey, let's starve the kids. Brilliant.
10:57 am
hokie carla

it's sad that sometimes that's the only food a kid gets in a day
10:58 am
rururocks

that's true hokes
10:59 am
mael

it's obscene that we can't just feed kids who need to be fed
10:59 am
mael

it's so much cheaper to feed hungry kids than it is to deal with the societal consequences of hungry kids
11:00 am
MollyL

Hopefully, communities that are affected by this will respond with some kind of self-funded programs.
11:02 am
mael

self funded how?
11:02 am
mael

this is the funding
11:02 am
MollyL

Ask for donations to supply kids with lunch money. Community funded instead of government funded.
11:03 am
mael

The communities that are most affected are not ones that can afford to ask for donations from... members of the community
11:03 am
mael

charity doesn't work, government programs do
11:05 am
MollyL

So then people from outside the area. There is plenty of individual money out there. Otherwise people wouldn't be able to afford the mortgages on their $300,000 homes, the $50 bucks a month they spend at Starbucks and the hundreds they put in their gas tanks every month.
11:05 am
mael

it would just make fiscal sense too: it's not like the government doesn't then shoulder the costs of underfed kids, whether directly or indirectly. Worse educational outcomes, worse health outcomes, worse job prospects, increased crime rates, depreciated assets, and so on and so on. But it's much easier to pretend you're saving money than acknowledging that by not spending a little now you're spending a LOT more later
11:05 am
mael

sure, but that's why we have TAXES. Take from those that have and give to those that have not
11:06 am
mael

through the government, not charity.
11:06 am
MollyL

No we actually have taxes for a lot of other reasons.
11:06 am
rururocks

<-- would love to have $300,000 homes here in California
11:07 am
mael

taxes shouldn't fund social programs?
11:07 am
mael

since when?
11:07 am
MollyL

I didn't say that. I said that is not the main purpose of taxes.
11:08 am
hokie carla

yeah, like in the appalachians, there might be one or two rich people but mostly communities can't help, that's why they need help
11:08 am
mael

but how does that negate the fact that we should use taxes to fund social programs? just because we use them for other things too
11:09 am
MollyL

It doesn't and I never said it should.
11:10 am
mael

okay, so why disagree with using taxes to fund social programs?
11:10 am
mael

unless you think I meant that that's the ONLY reason we have taxes?
11:11 am
MollyL

For those who are interested, All For Lunch is a national organization that helps kids who need it get school lunches. You can donate on line.

11:40 am

Mael, it is a crime that a rich country like the U.S. has a population that relies on schools to feed kids.
11:40 am
cybernan

just been through the chat -- don't really understand what everyone is so upset about: Man insults another's wife, husband slaps man. Done and justified.
11:42 am
rbud

yeah, I kinda felt the same, nan, but boy, did the masses (many without the "m") give me heck on FB about it.
11:45 am
rbud

"bad role model", "she can stick up for herself", "violence is never the answer", and the ever-present bits about it being sexist and/or politically incorrect.
11:45 am
MollyL

So you two are condoning physical violence? Just curious.
11:45 am
rbud

there's another one! imagine that.
11:46 am
MollyL

Okay, question answered.
11:47 am
cybernan

the host was not funny molly - he was way out of line and got what he deserved. And as far as punches went, it was obviously held back and meant to make a point rather than cause serious injury
11:48 am
MollyL

Wow
11:48 am
cybernan

are you saying people should be allowed to go around insulting others and saying whatever they want without consequences?
11:49 am
rbud

I figure, sure, it's bad to get violent, but there are times when it's just not the worst thing in the world. And be real, there are plenty of women who appreciate when their man sticks up for them, even knowing it's not the "correct" thing to do. I'll be interested to see if she has anything to say about it, because really, her opinion matters the most.
11:50 am
rbud

and it was a slap, not a punch. I figure alcohol was involved, and it sure could have been worse. Not "condoning", just understanding.
11:50 am
MollyL

No Nan. But I will never say that if someone gets insulted it is okay for them, or someone who cares about them to slap the insulter in the face. That is not how I raised my kids anyway.
11:51 am
MollyL

No not condoning but it sure sounds like "making excuses for".
11:51 am

There were plenty of other ways Smith could have defended his wife. We live in a world of people sounding off on social media and in the press.
11:53 am
rbud

Call it what you want, you like confrontation, and verbal slapping (which Rock did) can be just as bad, sometimes worse.
11:53 am
cybernan

there is a difference between insulting someone and ridiculing someone in public, which is what he did. I still say he deserved what he got -- and if that is what is style of comedy is, I am surprised it hasn't happened sooer.
11:53 am
cybernan

agreed, rbud -- certainly more hurtful than a slap
11:53 am
rururocks

I don't think the police would look at it that way if Chris Rock decided to press charges...
11:54 am
cybernan

charges for what? a slap? lets get real -- the police can shoot someone on a whim and think they should get off
11:55 am
rbud

I bet most of the people fussing about the "violence" of it all don't mind football a bit, but hey, what do I know?
11:55 am
rururocks

that qualifies as an assault nan.. not sure how that plays out in Canada, but here it is a crime
11:56 am
cybernan

so if you defend yourself in the US it is a crime?
11:56 am
rbud

I also have several FB folks who still believe it was all a put-on to raise Oscar ratings, and I consider that a definite possibility, too, I have to admit. They ARE actors, after all.
11:57 am
rururocks

i really doubt that RB.. not too likely
11:57 am
KnightTime

Smith did not defend his wife- He laughed at Rock's joke, then saw his wife was upset and tried to save face.
11:58 am
rbud

Let's just see, like I said, if his wife says anything, and whether they take his award away. That will tell a lot.
11:58 am
rururocks

he wasn't defending himself nan and it wasn't an appropriate joke, but it was just a joke. We can't start all climb up on stages and start assaulting comedians
11:59 am
cybernan

I don't know much about the legalities of it all, but do think verbal assault should be dealt with in the same manner as physical assault.
11:59 am
cybernan

It wasn't just a joke to her, Ru -- that is the whole point.
12:00 pm
cybernan

Anyway -- what was a molehill is now a mountain. I wilsh people would get as upset about what Putin is doing to Ukraine.
12:00 pm
rururocks

I don't know if Chris Rock knew she had a medical issue with her head.. but part of the price of celebrity is that people can take you to task
12:00 pm

No way - verbal assault is subjective which leads to elimination of free speech

Inappropiate behaviour under the guise of comedy is still inappropriate behavour. I am surprised Don Rickles got away with so much

assault is assault, KT --- free speech does not inclue defamation of character or assault -- free speech is the freedom to express an opinion on something.
12:01 pm
rururocks

I don't agree with that godthaab
12:01 pm
rbud

I think they ought to line up the Academy Award board and smack them all, haha, for what they've let its level sink to. No dignity, nothing special, just a joke-filled roast.
12:02 pm

agreed, godthaab

defamation of character is covered under free speech in america if you are public figure

12:13 pm

For those condoning what Smith did, I can only suggest that if someone walked up to you and slapped you in the face for something you said that they perceived as offensive, you would be singing a different song.

1:31 pm
hurshy

EllJay

Seems I can't count.
1:34 pm
Kaplan the Magne

mind didn't land me in the PB because it wasn't a word
1:34 pm
penquis

yes, probably more grammatically correct....
1:35 pm
EllJay

1:38 pm
Sophie512

I enjoy the chat here. No matter the subject or views. Thanks for the clues. I got 171 words with no other help, so I'm happy. Back later. Or maybe not. Have a great day, either way! :)

1:41 pm
penquis

did you do the Bee today, carla?....
1:42 pm
penquis

you can but the letters don't connect in this grid....
1:42 pm
MollyL

I think somone commented that for t7 lemon you would have to use the first T twice
1:42 pm
hokie carla

yeah, still 4 pts. from genius. was only 1 yesterday and couldn't get it.
1:42 pm
penquis

you can have a more t4....
1:42 pm

1:46 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I forgot the other one I used to play- with the 3 minute grids. WOrdsplay?
1:46 pm
mattygroves

I like Wordle. That fact it's once a day makes it a quick yet thoughtful diversion, particularly when I'm working
1:46 pm
penquis

yes, WordSplay is still there....
1:46 pm
Kaplan the Magne

And words with friends is useful as a time suck
1:47 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Let me try a few wordplay. It's crck compared to this, which is a slow drug.
1:47 pm
hurshy

exactly, wordle is fine as a quick diversion, but nowhere near as awesome as babble
1:47 pm
penquis

yes, that's true....
1:47 pm
Kaplan the Magne

2:21 pm
moolingwa

astronate - space baby
2:21 pm
hokie carla

interesting
2:21 pm
moolingwa

it's going to happen at some point one would think
2:22 pm
hokie carla

I need one A there and 4 from the other
2:22 pm
moolingwa

3 A's on that one, 2 on the other
2:23 pm
hokie carla

oh, found 2 A's, finished the 5, and realized my earlier statement should've read too many 6's and 7's
2:23 pm
moolingwa

2 on that one...2 on the other
2:23 pm
moolingwa

2 on that one...1 on the other
2:25 pm

2:25 pm
moolingwa

still have 3T on that one
2:26 pm
hokie carla

think I will look for 4's
2:26 pm
moolingwa

yeah, haven't gotten to that point yet
2:28 pm
hokie carla

oh, now have all T's
2:30 pm
moolingwa

Still one T on the bottom (just finished the other one)
2:30 pm
hokie carla

that was my last one, a 6
2:31 pm
hokie carla

that's my guess for yours
2:31 pm
moolingwa

could be
2:36 pm
hokie carla

get rekt
2:36 pm
hokie carla

top two rows gray! of course my last R was a 4 that I entered this morning.
2:36 pm
moolingwa

oops just found the 9/10...was going to joke define it
2:37 pm
hokie carla

haha
2:37 pm
moolingwa

2:37 pm
hokie carla

wondering if it was the ruru version or the rbud version
2:37 pm
hokie carla

5-0-3-12-2
2:38 pm
moolingwa

what local church leaders do :)
2:38 pm
hokie carla

similar to both
2:38 pm
moolingwa

yeah, I can speculate on the ru version
2:40 pm
hokie carla

there's another 4 I already did
2:40 pm
moolingwa

still 4 S's on that top S
2:41 pm
moolingwa

10 tiles with 1 remaining, and 2 with 2 remaining
2:41 pm
hokie carla

still 10 here on that S
2:41 pm
moolingwa

yeah, there's some uncommon words on that S
2:41 pm
hokie carla

P S10 R A V3 R A2 N
2:44 pm

2:45 pm
hokie carla

ooh, found the middle row R
2:47 pm
hokie carla

what are my missing 2 8's?
2:47 pm
hokie carla

guess I could go read the flip
2:47 pm
moolingwa

I'm guessing one at least is an S
2:47 pm
moolingwa

if you want a clue, let me know...will help with your S anyway
2:47 pm
hokie carla

good statistical guess, and correct. sure, I'll take a clue.
2:48 pm
moolingwa

there is a 7/8 and a similar 7 that are all musical terms, so think italian
2:49 pm
moolingwa

my other guess is an a8 which is related to a 6
2:49 pm
moolingwa

found my final 5
2:49 pm
hokie carla

have been trying stuff with that double T but nothing so far. will try some other things.
2:50 pm
hokie carla

I have ar8
2:50 pm
moolingwa

think italian
2:50 pm
moolingwa

which should help at one end..
2:50 pm
moolingwa

you have su8 right?
2:50 pm
hokie carla

the 5s must be easy or mostly pl because it's very unusual for me to finish them first
2:50 pm
moolingwa

oh nevermind, doesn't exist
2:51 pm
moolingwa

oh, more s8 help coming
2:51 pm
moolingwa

there's a 7/8 s that is "hot"
2:51 pm
moolingwa

and "spicy"
2:51 pm
moolingwa

actually don't need the quotes, they're literally hot and spicy
2:52 pm
hokie carla

oh, phone call
2:52 pm
moolingwa

hopefully it's not hot and spicy
2:52 pm
moolingwa

found my last n

Uneaixoise

At7 please.....not having to do with fashion
2:57 pm
moolingwa

got it after finding an a6...which might be a clue
2:57 pm
moolingwa

I don't want to be short about it une, but...maybe that's a clue
2:58 pm
moolingwa

it literally means to wear down, normally seen with a -tion ending
2:58 pm
hokie carla

I don't have that yet. must be my last 2 a's on that side
3:00 pm
hokie carla

hmm, thinking erosion. but can't think straight because my friend is still talking.
3:00 pm
moolingwa

want me to be more obvious?
3:00 pm
hokie carla

now I got it.
3:00 pm
Uneaixoise

3:01 pm
Uneaixoise

Tried attrition....
3:01 pm
hokie carla

different form, une
3:01 pm
moolingwa

3:01 pm
Uneaixoise

Sorry..... it's been a freaky day
3:02 pm
moolingwa

no worries here
3:02 pm
moolingwa

this board is a war of...
3:02 pm
hokie carla

3:02 pm
moolingwa

3:02 pm
Uneaixoise

Got it! New word.....
3:03 pm
Uneaixoise

Thanks!!
3:03 pm
moolingwa

Well I have one more a, so guess it's not impossible
3:03 pm
hokie carla

oh, I thought you said something about it being something you found after another word
3:04 pm
moolingwa

oh, well Une mentioned it wasn't the fashion related one
3:04 pm
moolingwa

which comes before it
3:04 pm
moolingwa

still have five 4s...probably should look at those now
3:04 pm
moolingwa

well, there's one
3:05 pm
moolingwa

3:12 pm
moolingwa

3:12 pm
moolingwa

the other is the musical term
3:12 pm
moolingwa

and you were on the right track before
3:12 pm
hokie carla

ok, so the other is the music one
3:13 pm
hokie carla

is it SO?
3:14 pm
moolingwa

no
3:14 pm
hokie carla

oh, maybe that's my problem
3:14 pm
moolingwa

I imagine it would be difficult to find with that letter combo yes :)
3:17 pm
hokie carla

SE or ST?
3:17 pm
moolingwa

ST
3:18 pm
hokie carla

ok, got 2 7's
3:18 pm

3:19 pm
hokie carla

3:20 pm
moolingwa

ah yes, forgot that one
3:20 pm

3:24 pm
moolingwa

yes, you have to be ingested to understand it
3:24 pm
hokie carla

yes, meatball. 3-0-2-5 means I have 3 4's, 0 5's, 2 6's, and 5 7's left
3:24 pm
Meatball421

ingested??? EEEEEEEEEK
3:26 pm
hokie carla

3:27 pm
Meatball421

moolingwa said it
3:27 pm
moolingwa

I did indeed
3:28 pm
moolingwa

avertant could be a word in an alternate reality
3:28 pm

3:39 pm
hokie carla

found my N
3:39 pm
hokie carla

I swear I did that one earlier too
3:40 pm
hokie carla

makes me wonder how many of my last 9 I think I have already
3:43 pm
moolingwa

I've had a few that I thought I had tried, but likely typoed or got distracted on
3:46 pm
hokie carla

found the P! 8 left
3:47 pm

3:55 pm
hokie carla

found the R - a 4!
3:55 pm
moolingwa

nice
3:56 pm
hokie carla

well, my right A was a 4 that I also already entered today
3:57 pm
moolingwa

annoying
3:57 pm
hokie carla

agree
3:57 pm
moolingwa

absolutely
3:57 pm
hokie carla

still one A on the left though. and the s's and v's
3:58 pm
moolingwa

yeah, I can posit the v's if you like
3:58 pm
moolingwa

how many do you have?
3:58 pm
hokie carla

that'd be v.v. great
3:58 pm
hokie carla

2 left
3:58 pm
moolingwa

do you still have a 4 left?
3:58 pm
hokie carla

yes
3:59 pm
moolingwa

and the other might be either the 6 which is latin, and means trust, or a 7 that might leave you green with envy, knowing that I got it first
3:59 pm
moolingwa

my last 4 is a weird v4
3:59 pm
hokie carla

I do not have any v7, will work with that clue
3:59 pm
moolingwa

or rather was
3:59 pm
hokie carla

I have 9 v4
4:00 pm
moolingwa

remember, my cles are more cryptic than not
4:00 pm
hokie carla

yes, I know
4:00 pm
moolingwa

yes, then I think it might be the one that is worth more than the others
4:00 pm
hokie carla

what is the 7 stat?
4:01 pm
moolingwa

ve7/44
4:01 pm
moolingwa

commonish word
4:01 pm
hokie carla

I have a veird va4/8
4:01 pm
moolingwa

then you're missing a different v4...perhaps the second to last one
4:02 pm
hokie carla

I think I have that too
4:02 pm
hokie carla

will retype every v4 possiblility
4:02 pm
moolingwa

then pehaps the second one, the one before the 7
4:03 pm
hokie carla

ok, got the 7!
4:04 pm
moolingwa

I knew if I planted a clue, you'd figure it out
4:04 pm
hokie carla

I have the pink floyd song before the 7
4:04 pm
moolingwa

yep
4:04 pm
moolingwa

then it's an easy one
4:05 pm
moolingwa

o/` does anyone here remember... o/`
o/` do you remember how she said...we would meet again...some sunny day o/`
4:06 pm
hokie carla

what has become of you
4:06 pm
moolingwa

yeah, who knows....I used to be quite normal
4:07 pm
hokie carla

are you pretending you didn't notice I continued the lyrics?
4:07 pm
moolingwa

Oh, I knew you continued them
4:08 pm
hokie carla

ah, it was the presidential word. not sure how I missed that all day.
4:09 pm
moolingwa

think these last three are too much work
4:10 pm
moolingwa

guessing a6 and s6 and s7...but could be a7
4:10 pm
hokie carla

yep, I know you don't list but I'm about to so I can walk Winston before it's bedtime.
4:10 pm
moolingwa

sounds like a good strategy
4:10 pm
hokie carla

I have 2 6 and 2 7 left. the left A and 3 upper S
4:11 pm
moolingwa

maybe missing an s7 plural?
4:11 pm
moolingwa

before you list
4:11 pm
hokie carla

I haven't seen people asking for clues for any weird a's or s's so feels like they might be normal. but what are the odds of us both needing them if so?
4:11 pm
hokie carla

will check my plurals.
4:13 pm
hokie carla

nope
4:13 pm
moolingwa

you got all 4 related s7s?
4:14 pm
moolingwa

coz they're the only 7s off the middle row s
4:14 pm
moolingwa

h no, I missed this one
4:14 pm
hokie carla

yep
4:14 pm
moolingwa

there's a 5/7 combo
4:14 pm
Sophie512

4:15 pm
moolingwa

hey soph
4:16 pm

4:16 pm
moolingwa

it's a 6?
4:17 pm
hokie carla

yes
4:19 pm
hokie carla

well so far the list not helping with the last 2 S
4:21 pm
moolingwa

what's the second letter on the a?
4:21 pm
Sophie512

I'm down to 11 all T will be happy to clue an S
4:21 pm
Sophie512

I'll try very hard not to type the whole %$%$##@ word
4:21 pm
hokie carla

av
4:22 pm
hokie carla

thanks, sophie. surely I can figure them out with the points and the list position.
4:22 pm
moolingwa

oh duh, alternate spelling of the bird
4:22 pm
hokie carla

usually has a c?
4:22 pm
moolingwa

for normal people, it's spelled with a c
4:23 pm
hokie carla

I've seen that spelling here but didn't know it was a bird
4:24 pm
moolingwa

yeah, believe so
4:24 pm
moolingwa

I mean..it's the way you say it, if not how you spell it
4:24 pm
moolingwa

they're cool birds, their bills curve upwards at the end
4:25 pm
hokie carla
