Happy to be #11 but how do you turn "arrears" into two words? Was sure we had this wrong.

OK, looks like the second time this year (last time was 26 March): my working copy of the crossword has all the entries correct - pretty sure I didn't transpose anything. Which entry was judged wrong? Jim Piburn


wordnerd July 2, 2009 @ 12:52 p.m.

Faxed my correct entry on June 25. Did you lose it? Also faxed the Easy Sudoku puzzle. Did you lose that one too? I really look forward to these puzzles each week. Don't know what I'll do when I go on vacation. Thanks


angelp July 3, 2009 @ 1:12 p.m.

Jim Piburn, on 21 across/13 down, you left the last box blank.

Wordnerd- we can not look into you query without your name.

Hope this helps

The puzzle helper


jayt July 5, 2009 @ 12:49 p.m.

So I DID transpose (or left a box blank, same thing)...thanks for the quick response.
