Was loving it to the very last word, which I did not know. At least one, maybe two humps in the playing field, but altogether an enjoyable puzzle.

Barry's work is always a challenge. I got his "Perfect Moment" puzzle and let's just say it is a bit more difficult than "Catching the biggest fish ever"!

Excellent puzzle. Had a lot of fun with this one, unfortunately has a few "Sorry's" too.

Yup - I was doing really well until I got that puzzle - I think he put that word in there just to be mean! But later I'll try to remember to tell you what I THOUGHT that word was gonna be - I'm still laughing over the possibility.

Other then that frustration (23 letters used on one phrase - might as well have been in Welsh) it was a fun puzzle and and in interesting look at Garrybl!

Great puzzle Barry, even though your perfect moment got me.

Yeah, for the most part, it was a fun quiz. Unfortunately, I was one of the unlucky 50% who drew the incredibly difficult Perfect Moment puzzle. No doubt that one mystery word is regularly used by Barry, but I've sure never seen it before.

I drew it also. Barry used to be my favorite Word Puzzle author. Emphasis on "Used to be"

I got the "perfect moment" as well. Let's just say it was far from MY perfect moment! Somehow, I expected Barry's personal puzzle to be stranger than it was. I love all of these - really interesting.

I also loved it. I can certainly relate to his Perfect Moment. 'Nuff said about that while the WP is still live. What really impressed me was My Earliest Memory.

That word was easy. I nailed it with one vowel exposed.

I, also, had a not-so-perfect moment, but I enjoyed the puzzle otherwise! I learned some really interesting things about you Barry, caused me to like you more. I also thought you structured your phrases quite well to give a hint.

Learning more about fellow Sploofusers...that's what I like about this series!

(And who knew that Oogie knew you so well? wtg Oogie!)

We got the perfect moment one as well; had a rather mean word in it. Otherwise a really well done one. Thanks, Barry!

I had to get a reset, and I cut eight letters from my final score because I didn't get "A Perfect Moment" the second time around. I *play* bridge and have never heard of a vugraph.

I didn't get the perfect moment one, good thing 'cause I don't know much about bridges....

Dang that perfect moment and me being too chicken go without a safety letter on a couple Thanks for the great puzzle, Barry

I did pretty well- I missed the "vugraph"puzzle. Close call.
No sorry's this time.

Had to google "whelk' however.

I agree Vugraph was mean; since it is the equivalent of close-circuit commentary and I've been doing it for 20 years as a commentator, I assumed it was more common than it is in other sports.

I'm glad that other than that nothing was deemed too unfair.

Well, Lamizell, in high-level competitive bridge a Vugraph is like a scoreboard that shows all four hands, the bids as they progress and the play of the hand too, I suppose (I haven't watched one in ages). Moreover, the word was known by an online aide I use when I just had the "a" and was pretty certain a "u" was the second letter.

Would that I had the vocabulary of an online aide.

I was looking at _ u g r a _ _ and had this funny idea that the word was fugraph, as in a way to graph out the hands that had been 'f'ed up'. A word akin to 'snafu' or 'fubar'. I was chuckling quietly to myself imaging bridge players using that term!
