Fun series - keep them coming!

That was a good one. I did get them all without need for the hint, so I guess it was on the easy side. But I enjoyed it. Thanks

I do like these teasers. Keep'em coming. Not sure about 'scream' and 'weep'...
May 27, 2010

I got them all and had fun doing it.
I was a little puzzled by the last one--not so sure one could call them even "near synonyms", but those were the only words I could think of, and when I looked at the hint I was pretty sure I was right.
Thanks for another fun teaser!

Nice & easy. Thank you soldiers & veterans.

I did use the hints on this one, as I sailed through the first two, then got stuck-picked it all right back up with those hints! Fun!
May 27, 2016

This time around I got them all again, but on number 3 I got rove and grout.
Both acceptable words. Yes, thanks to all the veterans and especially to our own doehead!

In my world, "scream" and "weep" are not synonyms, or even near synonyms. The shortest verse in the Bible, "Jesus wept.", could only by an absolutely fatal stretch of semantic imagination be rephrased as "Jesus screamed."

well done albeit easy
