Just right for late at night; a very gentle example.
But full of useful knowledge.... just not sure how I'll use it.

The Mystery Theme puzzles are always fun to do.

Dang! If I would have watched more carefully I wouldn't have had the 3 pink screens. Very interesting puzzle. Good job.

TallActor and I used to take turns complaining about this, but since he's not here to help out, let me be the bad guy and point out *again* that the actions of characters in films, television, books, and so on are always present tense. Hoke still drives Miss Daisy; Mary laughs at the funeral of Chuckles the Clown, Oliver Twist asks for more gruel. To use past tense is incorrect ... and costs me four moves in an otherwise entertaining WP.

Fun puzzle, but one bone to pick with Sploofusaurus...don't blame the messenger! You get a disease from the other guy who has the disease, not the carrying party? I know I know, everyone says you catch Lyme disease from the Lyme tick, but really you get it from the deer who had it first! Loved the puzzle tho.

Fun puzzle, thank you! However, I'm afraid I have to agree with Lamizell - unless all copies of Watership Down have been destroyed then it "is a novel"!

Thanks for all your comments, and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

For Mickeym:
I researched for my information on tularemia, and this was the result:
"TULAREMIA –noun Pathology, Veterinary Pathology.
A plague-like disease of rabbits, squirrels, etc., caused by a bacterium, Francisella tularensis, transmitted to humans by insects or ticks or by the handling of infected animals and causing fever, muscle pain, and symptoms associated with the point of entry into the body."

For Nelly and Lamizell:

I use past tense throughout my WPs when referring to movies, books or songs, as
it gives consistency.
Otherwise, there WILL be at least one player who will note differing tenses and
be upset about it. I am sure you have noted such comments in the BBS before.

We all know those movies, books and songs are still in existence, and
*could* be referred to in present tense, but I am trying to capture the past
experience of having seen/read/heard by using a past tense.

I'm sorry if this has cost you points/moves when playing the puzzle.

My best regards to you all for your comments.
