I don't think you two are trying to solve. My hosting is S L U M P I N G with all the errors I make so I'll only submit that word that at least uses all the known letters. I'm tired of boxing with my errors.

we are coming up on 61 years. She doesn't cuss anymore, just says "Oh, dear". Having Alzheimer's apparently keeps her mind from getting upset about anything. I'm the one who cusses to myself when she doesn't know a hammer from a screwdriver or cell phone from a box of Kleenex. Or when she wants to go home to her mother who died in 1991. I just bite my tongue and accept her the way she is and remember all the good years we've had. I'll sum it up with

It has not been a banner year for some computers, JM is constantly swearing at hers. I never knew she could swear so well until this year!! Gosh, over 51 years married and she can cuss like a sailor. Guess that comes of being from San Francisco - they sure do have sailors there. And just think - C O M P U T E R - is an eight letter word.

I'd love to choreograph this one but there are too many letters so I have to stretch out.

Keeping my fingers crossed that the power cord will keep on working. Frustration was I had a backup cord but had the wrong type plug. Tried using the old laptop but can't remember the password. Dementia!!!!

We don't even have cellphones anymore. Or rather we have Nokias but Tracfone refused to upload the last time we paid - dang guys - $200 per phone per year and dumb people on the lines. We were both very put out and could not get beyond this one woman who insisted we needed new phones to up load. They were only 2 years old. What a racket that is.

No C, no B, well L or H are possible. That would be R A _ E L O O K or R A _ E H O O K but I still don't have the internal letters (infernal ones?)
