These are terrific puzzlers, for people enjoying crossword type puzzles. I can enjoy them, because my parents loved to figure crosswords, anacrostics, and various puzzle games. Even soduko problems, before they became so popular.

IS IT ME, OR ARE THESE GETTING EASIER AND EASIER.

HOW ABOUT STEPPING UP THE DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY.

THIS WAS KIND OF A NO-BRAIN'ER

Another easy one at least for me. Good way to keep the mind active, tho 'cause you try to come up with as many good answers as you can and hope one is what the person who wrote it was thinking. At least that is what I do.

I said: make--__do__--over

That makes sense too.

Great teaser. Keep 'em coming.

Maybe I am a little sleepy. I realize that the word: Make is part of the second one and the word: Over is part of the last one.

I just put them together somehow. Sorry

Not too difficult, but it gave me some trouble. I don't like the easy ones, I'm looking for a challenge. Thanks for a good one.

That was a good one. I got 2/3. That's not too bad. At least it wasn't HP.

Shiftless seems like an odd word to put in a puzzle... none the less, I got it.

I have to admit I didn't get length-wise-crack... the minute I saw crack I could only think of anatomy... so I liked it... tough for me anyhow - I sure like those though
colewrecks
Aug 01, 2007

I don't mean to say that I liked it because it made me think of... anatomy... that didn't look right. I liked the puzzler

I got the first and last pretty easily. I got 'stand' for the middle one, but I guess your answer is a little better!

Took a little thinking, but got them. Not all of us can brag about how easy it was. I liked it and it was just right!

I didn't get the first one. On number 3, I used "time" - Make time, and timeless (although make time is two words and not a compound word) Nice teaser!
