    2nd, 3rd and 4th

    This is eight different puzzles. In each group below, the letters you see are the 2nd, 3rd and 4th letters of a series of words that are related in some fashion.

    Example: ock, hir, ant, hoe, lou
    Solution: Articles of Clothing; The letter list represents the 2nd, 3rd and 4th letters of the words: s<font color=blue>ock</font color=blue>s, s<font color=blue>hir</font color=blue>t, p<font color=blue>ant</font color=blue>s, s<font color=blue>hoe</font color=blue>s and b<font color=blue>lou</font color=blue>se.

    Don't forget... The first letter is missing and there may or may not be additional letters following the letters in the clue. If a four-letter word is used in the word list, only the first letter is missing. If a five-letter word is used in the word list, the first and the fifth letter is missing, etc. You are seeing the 2nd, 3rd and 4th letters of each word in the list.

    Nice puzzle, Ricky. Keeps one's interest with just the right level of difficulty.

    All of the puzzles were solved correctly, of course. The lone choccy bar goes to Leif, because Nutmargaret made me laugh... <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>
