For 1st one, I had V[EIN RAC]K to get "carnie". I know it's a variant spelling of carny, but still acceptable.

Excellent puzzler...makes u think in both directions at once

2 alternate answers are
trot cafe=decode
veto pack=capote

Ariel, your trot cafe results in "factor" Where does "decode" come into the picture? This puzzle was tricky - but I wish I had given it more time!

Word puzzles are my favorite - I was too impatient today.

I also had Trot - Cafe - Factor and Veld - Duck - Cuddle

Admittedly veld is an alternate spelling for veldt.

Good Teaser

This was quite a challenge Jazz.
I didn't get a single one. Maybe if I'd had more time. Excellent directions

What is Tret please?

Thanks.

Thanks for the teaser, even if I did not get it at all. I couldn't think. I think my brain is still asleep. It was really fun trying.

Thanks guys.

Sorry about 'tret'. Thanks composer for the meaning. It's an old word, not used much these days. It has a nice ring to it don't you think?

I thought it was hard and not fun. Guess I'm just not willing to waste a lot of time on trial and error for something so useless.

Feb 18, 2008

Yeah...I don't know TRET either..it is in the dict. (but my spell checker still flags it)
I prefer TROT CAFE = FACTOR
