These are fun; while not requiring much mental dexterity they are just right for an early morning wake up the fuzzy faculties exercise.

At first I thought no. 5 was Herman, but the extra r made me reconsider. Got them all right. Thanks, and more please.

I got all except David. Just couldn't come up with it. I thought this was fun, and it did make me think a bit.

Jun 30, 2007

I didn't get David, either; and I stuck with "Herman." The "r" didn't deter me; I just put 2 r's in "Herrman."

The equation example was really necessary and helpful for me to understand the directions. From that point I got them all quite readily and enjoyed the teaser immensely; voted 'fun and easy'. Thanks for submitting!

I zipped through that one fast with no problem. Got them all. Brent was easy as that is one of my son's name. Although it was easy for me I really liked it and thought it was different and fun!

I got Herman for # 5, and didn't take the time to wonder where the extra r belonged. So funny when I read my 2007 answer and saw that I did almost the same thing back then, but Then I did take the time to get it right.
