I thought #9 was tent, well it fits and you can live in one - I wouldn't fancy it in the winter though.

Good one Scubee

That was fun. I was with you until the last three - I got:
8. tentative
9. tent (not a great answer - but it works for me!)
10___________(couldn't think of anything)

On the contrary, Avonma, TENT is a great answer! I'm a camper. Great teaser--not too easy, not too hard. Thanks

I seem to have followed the crowd with tent as a dwelling. Otherwise it was easy, but fun. Thanks Scubee.

7 out of ten---

I came up with tent also and count it correct. I knew a whole family once who lived in two large army tents out in the woods year round, so I know it can be done.

What is this thing you all speak of? A tent? I agree it needs to be added as an answer and would also mark it correct.

That was fun ... thanks!
I had "tentative" for #8 and "tent" for #9 ... couldn't come up with anything for #10 though.

Guess Sweet Potato is my kind of guy because I also had Tentative & Tent and also missed # 10!

Great quiz!

Why Scallio, are you flirting with SweetPotatoe

Please excuse the spelling SweetPotato. I seem to have made the same mistake as a politician we once knew.
