Hi GB

20 tarp, trap

That's all the further I got. Gordon called me away to the kitchen. We are getting ready
for the installation of a new floor this weekend.

Anyhoo the rest of these look terrible difficult.

Rock, I added part of each answer. Take a look if you feel up to it. How did your floor come out?

Yep, Patti. Good solve. I'll post some more.

Rock, wasn't it your birthday yesterday? Happy Birthday! I remember it was near my DH's birthday, which is today. I think we were all born the same year too. :) GB

GB, well those answers all make sense. Just couldn't figure them out. The new floor is all done. Gordon said the workmen damaged it a bit when they moved the fridge back into
the kitchen. They fixed the damage so it looks good as new. Also installed a shelf. Don't
think the fridge liked being moved. It no longer gets cold. Good thing there's another on
the (enclosed) back porch.

Good work, Patti. You got 'em PAN.

Oh, Above is a message I typed this morning, but didn't post.

24 File, Life

The ones I knew Patti got. Good work, Patti. Can't figure out 22. And to think I
took a class in geology at college. Well, it was over half a century ago.

GB, the crew of 4 were here most of yesterday. Got the floor put in. Also added
a kitchen shelf. But moving the fridge seems to have upset it. It stopped working.
Some guy who moved her from Romania came and got it going again. He wanted
$400; and in American money. Gordon paid him. The guy left several hours ago,
but the fridge still isn't cold. Always something.

Yup, it was my birthday yesterday. Thanks for the birthday wishes, Kids. I am 78,
but can still pass for 77 and a half if the lighting is dim.

La revedere, Prieteni

That's "Goodbye, Friends" in Romanian according to Google.

Patti and Rock, Ya'll did good, as we say in the south! Part of the solve for #22 is VINE, but you'll have to guess the other part. :)

Rock, I am almost 78 but can easily pass for 108. And to think, I used to look about ten years younger than I was. Once, when my DH and I were 23 years old and I was in the barber shop with him, the barber thought I was his daughter!!! Loved those days. GB
