This is an excellent teaser. Easy for some, monentarily confusing for others, especially if you don't put on your Thinking Cap.
Keep Them Coming

I spilled my coffee this morning all over the kitchen counter, so don't have enough caffeine in my brain to deal with this. Got half of them without thinking; the rest ... well, after all, tomorrow is another day.

Hi gaylewolf. I did not see your message until now. Thanks for the greeting. It is still nice and appreciated and I am still here! Oh yes, nice teaser got most, but missed a couple...again.

I enjoyed this puzzle, but would have found it more interesting if the words to be "beheaded" hadn't all started with the letter "r".

It made me think, that's something I don't do very well before coffee. Got the first 4 right away. Used the hint for the others. Solved 3 more. Had to cheat on #5 (I had no clue). Next time I'll have coffee first. Great Teaser though.

I got them all including as few with the hints; fun and entertaining teaser and very challenging.
