It took me a few tries but I got them by process of elimination. It was fun. Good job.

Wow!! This was a really good teaser. Took a lot of mental effort to find the matchup that made sense.

You really know how to mince words. Good job. Took me about 10 minutes to work it out.

Well it took me more than ten minutes. I got threads from 'shed' and 'tar' and handle from 'hen' and 'lad'

That left my last two impossible to get but I was too stubborn to give up.

Great teaser!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very fun! I couldn't get them all since I combined "eight" with "wing", giving me weighting and leaving me with the impossible combination of hen and itch. Oh well!

It is great that you were able to make a teaser that made you think out of ordinary words (except for Paladin , but that was OK). Using the ordinary to make something challenging is the best. Excellent job.

Wow Peppa, you outdid yourself with this one. Really creative. Got part of them but not all. You probalby did as much work on this one as we who tried to solve it. Great job.

This was amazing! I couldn't get it at all--maybe being tired after a really busy day had something to do with it. But after seeing the answers, I see a strategy I could have used. I'd like to see another like this.

I like doing the Jumble in the newspaper but find it way too easy. This is a nice twist since you don't know which in Group A to combine with those in Group B.

I would like to see more.

nice!

Wow, this was tougher than what it seemed on first glance. It took me several minutes to find even one that inserted into another -- but then it was WITCHING that got me started (*cackle!*)

A few others fell into place, and then more, and then ... all of them!! I had to look up "scathed" because I've only heared of "unscathed", and I wasn't so sure about "heighten" at first but then realized it was indeed a real word (unlike "weighten", which crossed my mind before the "witching" took over!)

Yippee!! This was fun because it was challenging but not impossible. Good job on creating it!!

Not very easy but I had fun with it.
Didn't do too bad. It took some thought and that is what it is all about
getting our minds working.

Ha, I did Hitchen, and Weighting.
