Our resident currency expert, CP, solves the LINGO with B O L I V I A N O. I kind of like the way that rolls off the tongue.

Gee nobody throwing bolos?? BTW I think critic is a witch (in a nice way ) she can solve with only one or two letters. I have to have all the letters and a few hours. I now will leave here without posting as I think it may be won.

Sorry I missed CoPa's guess, but it came in while I was scoring, and I didn't see it. Not an issue, as it didn't find or place any letters.

However, Critic came up with my word, based on verrry little information. That makes me V E X A T I O U S, as I thought it would be good for a couple of days, at least.

Comeon, Jeanne, put in something trying to place at least one letter. You need to make up for your spouse who can't count. But I've been known to have the same problem. At our age, we are allowed to make mistakes. Maybe the Korean "police action" has something to do with it.

Yep. That P was the key clue. If the P had been guessed in any other location, we could have had a raft of guesses starting with P R E ---, but with that eliminated, the options went down significantly.

CP picked up on it, and drilled another hole in my skull by solving this game.

With that P I think CP has caught this one. Sometimes it is a matter of one little letter that tosses things one way or the other.

We were definitely homing in on it. C R O C O D I L E One time in Florida at our timeshare place one appeared during the night and was escounced in our little puddle of a lake in front of our front door. It was a surprise to come out to see that wide mouth open. Guess it wanted something to eat. I did not volunteer for the job. We talked to the groundskeeper and he called a croc farm and the dirty deed was done by the time we got back from our day's adventure at the space center. Told us it was a 15 footer which can take the leg off a grown man quite easily, or more if especially hungry. What I wondered is how it got all the way to our little pond (etang in France) and no one spotted it. They are wild looking creatures from the Cretaceous, I was told. Survivors like the birds.
