I love those. I got all the carols except one. I'll go back and think.

I love the number ones too. Some come quickly. Some take longer. I'll have to work on some of those.

I think I got all the songs too, except #17. I have to ponder a little longer on that one.

I'll have to try that one on my kids, see how they do.


I was feeling so clever because I got all of the carols without working up a sweat and then you had to go deflate my ego with the numbers.. Some are easy, but most are impossible. :-(


I do these with my students every year! Holler if you want s'more of 'em!

Ah ... reminds me that I did something like this the first Christmas I was blogging and drove YOU nuts with one or two. I've copied the clues and will try to find some time to think about them sometime soon. Thanks for giving us something to do with our copious spare time during the holidays ;-)
Hugs and blessings,


Funny how the answers pop into place after first seeming impossible.
Good for unsticking the mind. Thanks, Joy.


I've done both of those before, so I won't cheat and do them again. They were fun, though!


Dear Joy ~ I did reasonably well with the carols, less so with the numbers, AND What Spare Time.
Thanks for your e mail about the Bill Gates checks. It sounded too good to be true, so I should have checked it out. Thanks for setting me straight. Take good care dear friend and have a wonderfl Christmas
and the Happiest New Year ever in 2010. Much love, Merle.
