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

|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! :wink:
Word puzzles are my favorite - I was too impatient today. :oops:|

|Wow Jazz, another super hard one.Try as hard as I could, I couldn't come up with a single correct answer. All this on a Saturday morning at that. Thanks for the workout. :o|

|T[RET SAF]E 6-letter word: FASTER.

|I also had Trot - Cafe - Factor and Veld - Duck - Cuddle
Admittedly veld is an alternate spelling for veldt.

|This was quite a challenge Jazz.
I didn't get a single one. Maybe if I'd had more time. :D Excellent directions
What is Tret please? :-?
|Posted by mondayschild59||02/16/08|
|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.
Monday~ :oops: :oops:|

|Well, I can't blame it on being too early in the day. Dinner and dishes are done. The directions and example were right on :roll: My brain just wasn't :cry: Your teasers are always the best , Jazz. Thanks :) :)|

|Thanks guys. :D
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? :lol:|
|Posted by smartymarty||02/17/08|
|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.|
|Posted by ariel777||02/18/08|
| :cry: Yeah...I don't know TRET either..it is in the dict. (but my spell checker still flags it)
I prefer TROT CAFE = FACTOR :D|
|Posted by dogg6pound9||02/19/08|
|i couldnt get #2, and i also got TROT-CAFE=FACTOR for #3, but for #1 i came up with VEIN-TICK=INCITE... also acceptable :D ... once again, another outstanding teaser jazz :D ... keep them coming :D :D :D|
