    5. Watered down

    6. Died under water

    I guess the options are endless with D-D as almost anything with the suffix -ed would apply... :p

    Thanks for starting up, GB.

    Soul, I agree with your answers. ("Depend" is sufficient.)

    5 Watered down is diluted.
    6 Died under water is drowned. (Also just "drown". So far as I can tell
    one can use either word.)

    7 An act
    8 Lost weight
    9 Sped by

    Hi GB

    Very good. As usual we have some variation with synonyms and homonyms.
    For 7 I was thinking of an act that is also a deed. For 10 I suspected the
    horse was doped.

    For 12 I had in mind "dinged". And for 13 "defenestrated". But your answers
    are all fine so you get a blue ribbon as usual.

    I'll save half of your clues for Soul or et. al.

    Wait for me.... :p

    You all are going so fast... now to figure out what is and isn't answered. Rock you answers are correct :D

    I'm cutting and pasting away all your questions and answers from 7-28 to help my poor brain trying to catch up and make sense of what is and isn't answered only to find that the askers themselves are giving away the answers instead of giving more clues, such a waste of energy, please don't do that and give an extra clue instead or just leave it unanswered as wrong or not exact answers are clues too. T_T
    Such a complete waist of energy and downer trying to catch up otherwise...

    19. Mom's partner. - Dead, David?

    22. Space robot or a brand of cell phone - Droid?

    23 Hidden - I bet it could be something else then disguised but can't think of something right now, will get back to this.

    24 "The Beautiful And The ______." - Darkened Dreaded Dainted

    28 Sunlight through the leaves ______ the horse's coat. - Dappled?

    New Clue
    29 Answers revealed by the askers themselves leave others who still wanted to answer ........... to play

    30 Something that has been put color on is .....

    31 ...... and confused

    Oh goodness --- I didn't think that "DORT" would take off so fast! LOL I never looked at the letters, vertically. Just read them the usual way, left to right.

    But y'all gave me a chuckle! :D

    ***********************

    I'll try to guess a couple of the clues:

    MIKIE posted: Space robot or a brand of cell phone -- DROID

    24: "The Beautiful And The ______." -- DAMNED

    28 Sunlight through the leaves ______ the horse's coat. -- DAPPLED

    26 She got all ______ up for the party. -- ANOTHER GUESS: DOLLED

    Be back later, with some more clues. DIANE

    Hi Barry, nice to see you here. Sorry you're not good at games. I bet you're
    good at the traditional English game of Quidditch.


    [​IMG]

    I'm good at games myself. Just lousy at sports.

    30 Put color on is probably Dyed.
    I think GB is right with:
    32. Discontinued - (no longer available)
    and 36. Diluted - (lessened)

    29 Denied the opportunity to play?

    Diane, Damned, Dappled and Dolled up are all correct.

    Yes, GB, hidden is disguised.

    38 Revealed,

    Hey, GB
    That was pretty fast. All your answers are correct, yet none of them are the
    ones I had in mind. Or to put it another way, your answers and my answers
    are cinnamons.

    The only clue I can think of is that with "split up" I had in mind a couple.

    Opps! My brother is calling from Minnesota. Uff-da!
