    I'm watching another movie tonight on TCM, The Whales of August. Makes you not want to grow old, oh wait, too late for me! :) GB

    Oh yeah, GB, forgot that one. 12 is Stable.

    I saw the Whales of August a year or two back. Boring! I turned it off about
    half way through. A friend in the bridge club liked it though because it
    mentioned the suburb of Eagle Rock, and he lived there.

    Hugs, Kids

    Hi Diane

    21 must be pale and pail.
    22 looks like (or looks through) a pane; and a pain in the asterisk.

    Saving the rest for GB.

    Your clues are fine. But if you want to wail, do it now. It will soon be
    too late for the wails of August.

    Rock :)
