I loved the theme you two chose and the way you presented it. I'd gladly encourage other cases of long-distance interplay to express it in a puzzle.

That was so fun! And my own sweet memories of time spent in NM and GA make this WP particularly delightful to me. (I wrote a lot more I had to erase when it hit me there might be a clue there for the other 5 I didn't see).

Thanks guys for the WP!

I too enjoyed this one. 2 typos......I can't seem to learn to proofread before I hit "enter".

It was enjoyable, even though i did very poorly with it. I seem to have an internal psychological switch that self activates when a WP is deeply American !!!!

I liked it and was doing fair till my last puzzle. I did not like the way the sentence was structured.

This was absolutely my favorite co-written puzzle! Fun facts and a perfect topic for collaboration! It really expressed both of you and the places that you live!

Living in the Southwest, but having visited the Southeast US, I can really identify with most of the phrases I got! Funny (and so true)

Kudos to you both!

What a great theme for a WP! As a person who has lived in just about every region of the US at some point or another, I could really relate to alot of the phrases. Kudos to you both.

Profound, and very cleverly written.

I loved this puzzle too! Nice job, Sun & Oogie!

These collaborative WPs are a real hoot.

I bet y'all (or would that be you all) had fun making up this puzzle. Some were interesting and true, and some were just down right cute.

I also really enjoyed this puzzle. Well done Sun & Oogie!

Sure hope you plan to post all the phrases. Can't wait to see them!

Enjoyable if very foreign territory for me.
A couple of warnings as to words did not seem wholly necessary -- or maybe I just can't spell, as well as type.....

Very clever idea.

Hey, Sandy, want to do Indiana/ (SW) France ?

If Sunny and Danny don't mind, Jeremiah and I would like to do a collaborative WP too: AK Vs AU.
We would have had a wonderful time doing comparisons for years, why not write 'em down to share?

Just this second finished, no idea how I did, but it was SO fun!

I would love to see a puzzle by you and Jeremiah, so go for it Bev!! Thanx to everyone for the kind words, maybe Sun can post the entire puzzle? She is more gooder at computer stuff than I am

Thank you so much was fun to do, but if you enjoyed doing it, then that's even better!

It's really great of you all to comment. For those of you that are new...Oogie and I met here on Sploofus, and in person at a Sploofus convention in Philly a couple years ago. I saw Georgia for the first time visiting him and he saw NM for the first time visiting me. We should have another convention! My apologies to the non-Americans...but I love learning about your places too, so write some up!

Bev...I'd love to see a Jeremiah and Bev puzzle! Alaska and Australia...sounds like fun.

Here's the full puzzle:

Oogie: NM dining
when you ask for sweet tea all you get is a funny look
Sun: GA dining (Sp. alert)
when you ask for a side of chile you get a bowl of stew
In GA (colloq.)
no roadrunners darting across the highways but you may see possums
Autumn: NM-GA
golden aspens in the mountains are more spectacular than georgias fall reds
Look out! NM-GA
swarms of hot air balloons fill the sky more enjoyably than mosquitos
Oogie: Grown in GA
we dont have pinon nuts but vidalia onions are famous
NM homes
native pueblo peoples built elaborate adobe dwellings which are now popular
GA air vs NM (colloq.)
there is markedly more oxygen at sea level than two miles up in the rockies
no tumbleweeds can be seen on the roadside but acres of kudzu abound
NM-GA summers
dry heat is much more bearable than heat with humidity

Thanks again for all the kind words!

Thanks for posting all 10 puzzles. This one was really fun!

I agree about the sweet tea all over the country ... but it's getting better!

Thanks so much for posting all 10 clues and phrases, Sunny! I've been so busy that I missed your combo puzzle, but at least this way I get to still enjoy it. Very interesting info about both places

I went with can & it was may, pink, pink you stink
I loved the phrasing on this puzzle, nice work Sun & Oogie Nearly went crazy trying to remember the name of the plant, kudzu, which I knew Oogie had mentioned a while back on Sploofus.

Koota  (Level: 189.4 - Posts: 2122)
Sun, 14th Jun '09 10:47 PM

I knew Kudzu right off. I read somewhere that it has medicinal properties.

Let us hope that it does. There is sure enough of it. Maybe some good will come of it.

Great puzzle and great idea. More collaborations from different areas in this theme would be great!!!

I'm open to a collaboration, but not until autumn.

Summer in a European country is a span of two or three months when everything changes. Many associations cease their activities until September (exercise, hiking, etc). Instead sets of grandchildren arrive and occupy grandma's house for weeks. Beach and garden are full-time occupations. More entertaining . . . And, of course, we travel too.

BTW mosquitoes is the preferred plural of mosquito
