Sorry Lodi but I had to bail after using 18 letters on the first puzzle with a wrong guess and after that, not making much sense out of it.

A really fun puzzle. Reminded me of growing up in Indiana. Now if I could learn to spell...

This one was grand challange. My husband, who is the scramble god but gets twisted with compound words, had a good time with this. Thanks!

Agreed- her puzzle provided some great reminders of our youth.
Like many players- I jumped the gun on some words and cost moves, but once solved- all was well!

Really well done, Lodi!

Fun puzzle, Lodi! It took me forever cause I was called in mid puzzle and of course my usual 50 moves or so, but I did okay! Thanks for putting this one together!

Indiana must be "Eastern Idaho". I had a childhood just like that! LOL

Great puzzle, Lodi!

Man, I wish I had those memories. Something tells me that growing up in Idaho wasn't much like growing up in New York City!! Fun puzzle.

I had no problem in being cautious here and not guessing wildly.
As someone elese remarked this does not bear any resemblance to life in the big city.
But it was a really fun puzzle; very nice subtle clues as well -- especial kudos for being fair but not giving the game away.

Good puzzle! As a small town girl growing up, I could relate, I still had my usual high number of moves, but its all in the fun of solving.

I made two typos in my own puzzle. Believe it or not, I didn't instantly know all the answers because I had forgotten what I had written. How pathetic is that?

Great puzzle, Lodi, although you obviously grew up long after me! I was in high school when the very first satelitte (think spitnik, here) was launched! We used to watch the sky for shooting stars! Keep up the good work!

Great puzzle Lodi....
It painted a picture of a child's life....
adventurers like Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn!!!!
I believe it reflects not only the difference
between urban and rural life - but also the
innocence of the times....

Again, wish these puzzles were available to us more than the 12 hours. I had looked forward to taking Lodi's puzzle but didn't get back from a Memorial Day weekend trip in time. From sounds of things it must have been pretty good. Durn!

Thanks, Lodi, I really enjoyed this puzzle! I grew up in a big city but spent a lot of time on my grandparents' farm in Ohio, so this brought back some nice memories and conjured up other wonderful images. Great job!

Great puzzle Lodi and thanks for the memories. I too lived in the big city but I'm giving my kids a chance to have memories like yours.

Gone are the days indeed...very nice, and bittrsweetly reminscent of life in Southern Georgia....except I'm guessing you didn't have to deal with alligators on some of those excursions.

Good one Lodi! Did you realize back then that the rustling in the bushes when you were having your nightime natation was Smaug?

I really got a kick out of this series. You country kids had your share of fun.

Rowlanda  (Level: 70.0 - Posts: 2853)
Tue, 27th May '08 9:24 AM

I always felt so bad for my kids when they were growing up,
because they couldn't experience the freedom I had as a
child. There was nowhere near the amount of traffic on
our roads and we biked long distances to explore and
get into mischief. And of course, there were rarely child
disappearances, partly because EVERYONE was watching the
children in those days - it was good and bad. You couldn't
get away with much, with all those adult eyes on you....but
you felt safe because all of the "village" had a hand in
caring for and raising you. Teachers were "in league" with
parents, and both were in touch with churches and the police.

I too spent part of the time in the city and holidays in the
country, so had the best of both worlds. Also - until the advent
of television, there was no reason to stay at home except for
days of extreme weather.

I grew up only having Channel 3, and that was sometimes funky because all we had was an antennae on the roof of the house. So all of these quizzes about older tv shows from the 70's and 80's are lost on me.

The biggest disappointment was when Happy Days came out. I was in grade school and everyone was talking about the first episode and I pouted. But I sure got to see lots of Hee Haw.

Rowlanda  (Level: 70.0 - Posts: 2853)
Tue, 27th May '08 10:40 AM

LOL, Lodi....
We didn't have an antennae....
So I was the designated "rabbits ears"
Had to hold the wires and walk around
the room until the picture improved
and then hang up the wires, to keep them
in the "best" places....
Last time I was in England, 1999(?) there
were still only about 5 channels....but
at least they don't have the ENDLESS

Sorry I missed this one. I'm sure I would have enjoyed it. Cripes, I hate when life gets in the way of Sploofusing.
