Take away my first letter and I am a store.
Take away the second and people who look at me adore.
Put all my letters back and read me in reverse if you are able.
I am now cars suspended from an overhead cable.
Take a letter away and I become male sheep.
Did you get it, or did the letters you try to keep?

Once I got tram the rest of the words just popped out at me with no trouble. Very easy on the old brain after a sleepless night. Thanks.

Between my hubby and me we got it. I figured out Ram first and then got tram. Then he said, Mart and smart...

It took us a bit but we got it.

Great teaser. It was fun doing it. Keep 'em coming!!!

Jun 25, 2007

to be honest, i didn't like it but i still think thats cuz i didn't understand the taking letters away. anyways, maybe i have to get better at this. Lots of people liked it, so its a good teaser!

Woohoo, I got it!! That was an enjoyable struggle, for those few minutes it occupied my braingled-brain. I was a little puzzled because I couldn't see how a letter was taken away to get 'mart', which was 'tram' backwards, but then I got SMART about it!!

I am so smart, I am so smart,
S-M-R-T!

It was fun, but the rhyming . . . uh, it needs a little work.

Well written...even though I had to work backward from ram! Great teaser!

Jun 23, 2010

Doehead, I never saw it before! I venture to say that not everyone is on this site every single day of every year!

I missed art b/c I was taking away JUST the second letter instead of both first & second. But the solution became clearer with trams and rams; that was very SMART!

I love this teaser. I got it right but it still kept me thinking for a while. I will add this to my favorites.
auntiesisAus*
Jun 23, 2010

Easy and fun, even though I did it a couple of years ago I had forgotten all about it so it was like new to me.

Pretty easy. Good morning Habs, beautiful warm day here. But a bit rough as this would have been my spouses birthday ( I lost my spouse in Dec).

I had to think a little, but came up with the answer pretty quickly - just about right for a teaser. Nice One!
