too bad leef + i have a mad-busy day at work today...
good luck to you all!
Great clues SweetTooth! We have some of those h5's living by us in their h7's. They are HUGE!
We have a whooping crane visiting in Vermont. There are only about 400 in the world and this one is quite the tourist attraction. It's beautiful.
Gail ... COOL! I love living next to the creek because of all the birds. Could do without SOME of the wildlife though (mountain lions in particular)
I live in West Virginia and we had a very unusual visitor last week / an alligator.
I've had a moose in my yard.
alligator??? yikes! The moose would be preferable to that! LOL. Gail where do you live? I'm in Wyoming.
I live in Vermont
my daughter in North Carolina has deer and wild turkeys!
We get lots of wild turkeys, blue herons and hawks.
Aren't those wild turkeys fun?! We have several flocks that wander up and down the valley. last one I saw was tailing (literally!) a big ol' tom cat who was stomping across the field headed home. EVERYone feeds the turkeys around here so they're practically tame.
Darleen, that reminds me of a mockingbird I saw chasing a cat out of my yard!
We have several vehicle accidents due to Deer but here recently the turkey has been causing some also.One flew threw a mans drivers side windshield and he had to go to the hospital.The turkey seem to be worse this year, however,the deer population is down.
very weird that it wont take couger or cougers.
that's because it's "cougAr" not "cougEr"
there is a couger also / atleast here there is :))
And Babble often takes alternative spellings of words, it never ceases to surprise me.
BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO 2HOTT 4 PASSING HER DRIVING TEST TODAY.
LOL wilson27fan! You're right, of course :-)
Gail, may I please have a clue for the r/8/40 and o/8/45.
O8 To replace or make obsolete or old-fashioned
To recognize (a superior) with a gesture prescribed by military regulations, as by raising the hand to the cap again, Add a prefix to S6/18
Ooops, that second clue if for the R8
Thanks Gail... can't believe that r/8 is an actual word!
Gail, thanks, got them both.
With all the animal talk, I thought you guys might want to see some pictures I took at the Omaha Zoo last week:
Those are great pictures! I love zoos. We went to the Franklin Zoo in Boston three weeks ago. I love the little blue penquins at the Aquarium in Boston.
I saw the Omaha Zoo on Ultimate Zoos on Animal Planet.
Great pictures, Runningforhome.
Can anyone tell me what I'm missing?
I have these 8 letter words:
Running, great pictures. I know what you mean about the gorillas. I went to the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle and all the gorillas were sitting with their backs to the onlookers. Definitely felt like they were making a statement.
I went to see the "Corpse Flower" today. It's a giant flower that has a scent like rotting flesh when it blooms. The bloom only lasts for a few days. The plant is 10 yrs old and this was it's first bloom. Quite a sight!
it's taking a long time for the words i punch in to register. Anyone else having a problem?
Yes, Xena, it's taking forever. Yesterday's puzzle was fine, but the day before it developed an error and when I got back in I continued entering words but it only registered the words that I had before the error. So I ended up with about 40 words and a very low score.
Hi Mary. Glad i wasn't the only one. I shut off my computer for a while and it seems to be working fine now. It is very frustrating. I lost about an hour of playing time. :(
