Have loved this series. Assume this is the last....or keep on going.

One word was pretty unfair and caused us 12 moves when we were kicking butt. Oh well....

Yes I had a problem on an early puzzle with a gerund that was the same length and one letter different from what I was expecting -- and my word was more apt! Not that I'm bitter....
Great puzzle and hope we can find other equivalent 'planets' to focus on.

Couldn't agree with you more, Beth and Barry. I've enjoyed this series quite a bit. Unfortunately, tripped all over myself with this one. Three pink screens and a lot of head scratching. Oh well.

As you might have guessed, I too loved this series and especially this puzzle. I have become fascinated once more with our solar system, as much as when my son was small and I bought him book after book about the subject and spent money on a telescope I could ill afford at the time. My son has severe ADHD and for those of you who have experienced this trial you will understand why when you find something to still the racing you do what you can to make it last. Well the solar system and walking lake banks fishing is still part of his life at age 37. Neptune is a fascinating planet and I zoomed through this puzzle until I reached #5. I had to use four letters and guessed one letter that wasn't in the puzzle and laughed all the way to submit. I think knowing there is a big blue ball way out there that you could put 60 earths inside of were it not blazing hot is just a starter, not to mention 700 mile an hour winds. Unbelieveable! Also doesn't hurt to think of Andrea Doria as the god Neptune by Agnolo Bronzino. But that's a girl thing and probably just a "old girl thing", floats my boat anyway.

I think I may have learned even more from this series than in elementary school. Thanks for the refresher course. I'm in this to keep my brain up to speed so this kind of puzzle is great for me. Thanks. Anne

The problem was flowing vs blowing. seems to me blowing when you are talking about supersonic wind speed would have been a better word.....

All in all terrific. What's next?

That word got me a pink screen too!!

Apart from that, a very enjoyable puzzle.

I enjoy astronomy puzzles, so this was fun to do. But I think I got a word that caused some scratchiness too.
Keep looking up!

Thank you for all your comments, the series WILL continue beyond Neptune.
There is a lot more in the Solar System than just planets: I am tempted to go exploring further into the universe, would you like to join me?

Sploofasaurus: I reserve the right to construct [another] astronomy based puzzle. It's been awhile. One of my favorite subjects.
I had the puzzle that had the supersonic wind "flowing" too.
Didn't lose any letters on that,and I feel it was a proper use.
Methane "winds" flow.
Keep looking up.

My winds were blowing, not flowing. My word that cost me dearly.

Your winds probably have a whiff of methane, too.

I love these puzzles - this may have been the best of the series, imho.

One person's roses smell like another person's toeses
