Same rules as usual...

COME ON IN AND HAVE SOME FUN. IF YOU PLAY, BE SURE TO CHECK BACK REGULARLY TO SEE IF YOU HAVE WON, OR IF IT IS YOUR WORD - TO UPDATE FOR OTHERS. :)

Isn't it odd how hard sometimes a very easy word can be because of the letters hit.

That looks like a winner FOF, but I'll wait on Critic approving it before guessing to a new game.

HI CP he is in bed because I have been having mouth troubles -= very large pain in face getting worse every day this week causing me to use ice packs on my face to get relief. Called Dr. yesterday and he is seeing me today and pulling out two rotten teeth, much to my surprise - next week. I will get implants as otherwise I will look like a Vampire and that may be okay for the kids but not my style. So poor Sody just collapsed tonight early. He even fell asleep in Jeopardy which he loves, so I kept him awake as I could not sleep and I will tonight - have a pain pill for the awful pains it causes. This morning Sody looked at me and then looked again telling me to send his wife back as he did not care for this substitute. I look like that big actor who played "Jaws" to 007. The whole lower part of my face is swollen beyond belief. It is two of my lower front teeth decided to "split" so he is going to do the job. I was lucky to get the appointment and when Dr.G. saw me he said Hi, then when I sat in the chair he said "I knew something was terribly wrong". He built a gum for me many years ago, and it has been great. So I know where to go when.
. You may have all my margaritas or you and Sody may split them. Tequila and I are unfriends. Also Vodka. On the other hand I used to drink a lot of Gin and Rum and of course, my family's Champagne.

I give up. I don't know how critic does it but she's peeking over my shoulder again and sees my word. Maybe it's a good thing since I'll be on the road the next several days getting away from the cold weather coming to Colorado for the winter. I'll be in south Texas enjoying much warmer temps plus dancing and drinking margaritas in Mexico.

Yes, she wins with LOVEBIRDS.

Kisses to all of you. Even to you, Sody. (How come you're on so early tonight?)

Edit: miss me.... (solving)

These seem to be going fast. Since the scoring showed the location of O and E from the given words, then the other spaces had to be at the end..

That could be right, CP.

Wondering how you knew that there were 2 additional "--" placed at the end. FOF's scoring is only showing 7 spaces. "_ O _ E _ _ _ (no dups)"
