In each sentence a word is concealed, such as the word no in sentence five. If you can find the buried words and read them in order from 1 to 6, they will form a well-known proverb.

1.The word buried here has only one letter.
2.Did you find a jelly roll in Gaskin's Bakery?
3.It's the best one I've ever seen.
4.The rug at her stairway was made in India.
5.He's an old friend.
6.Amos sold his bicycle to a friend.

I got this one. It made me think and also gave me a little headache from all the staring at the words. Thanks for a great teaser.

I have been doing these teasers for about a month(off & on) and this is only the third one I have solved , but I am catching on. Good One, I figured it out when I seen moss in the last sentence.

A had a quick read through them and saw nothing obvious. Then I saw the name Amos which is a bit too unusual, so I got MOSS straight away and the rest became very simple.
Nice and easy.

THIS WAS KINDA HARD!
poison_ivy**
Aug 03, 2005

What I have to say is exactly the same as Vernando. Amos is not too common, so naturally I looked around that and found MOSS. Then it was so easy because the saying just popped into my mind. Very good! It's going on favorites!

I enjoyed this one. Got 'a rolling'
right away and knew the answer, but still great fun.

Good teaser, I got it but it took me a minute. Once I got "stone rolling" - it got me rolling (so to speak) on the proverb. Good one!

Nice one!

When I saw 'rolling stone', I thought of the band and magazine.

A great teaser! Putting "gathers" togther was brilliant!

Aug 03, 2008

Didn't look for it. Didn't find it. Didn't like it.
jcann*us*
Aug 03, 2008

Good work! How did you ever come up with those clever sentences to conceal the words? That must have been a lot harder than solving the puzzle! The clue and the first sentence gave it away for me. I don't know if I could have solved it otherwise. Thanks for the fun!
bradon182001*us*

Nice teaser. I found it quite difficult, but not impossible. Thanks for posting.

Too easy. But it was cute!

Aug 04, 2008

Very easy, but very clever. Really enjoyed it, but rolling gave the whole thing away..... so it was a piece of cake.

Funny, the first time I heard this proverb was a few weeks ago, and now you have a teaser for it! ^_^ After I got "rolling" I figured out what it was. Great teaser!
gaylewolfAus*
Aug 03, 2011

I agree with auntie sis a few years ago - I thought the idea was clever too, but the word "rolling" made it very easy! Thanks for a good one! I'd like to try another one of these! A special hello to KiPA
doeheadAus*
Aug 03, 2011

AROB. Still didn't like it. Not my thing. Oh well, I'll hope for better tomorrow. I'm glad GiMi liked it, because she is a special friend.
gaylewolfAus*
Aug 03, 2011

Doehead, I'm rather surprised you didn't try to solve it. You seem like the type of person who enjoys a challenge! Have a wonderful day, anyway!
teri12265us*

I thought it was cleverly put together. I was lost until I saw 'gather'. Added that to 'no' and worked backwards.
Here's a happy visual - I just saw a hummingbird then a cardinal in the same rose of sharon. Hope you all have a beautiful day.

Aug 03, 2011

Fairly simple - I got stuck on a few irrelevant words like "oaf" in 6 and "air" in 4 during the first minute, but during the second minute "gathers" jumped at me, and from there it was simple.

Well done.

On this one, I'm with Doehead.

This is super cool, except I didn't know about this kind of puzzle so it was harder for me,

It was very clever and even more fun, although I got it quickly!
Babe*
Aug 03, 2014

It took a little time, but I too, figured it out. Once I saw "moss" it all came together. Fun and thank you!

Gaskin's Bakery gave it away for me. Not sure why . . . .

Loved this teaser,even though it was easy, it was FUN!!
gaylewolfAus*
Aug 03, 2014

Like others, the word "rolling" made it easy. Love how gathers was written out!!. Jaycr - how did Gaskins Bakery help you solve it? Thanks for a good one - would love to see more like this!

I'm like doehead. It's like looking for a flea on a gorilla.
