3. Forgive and forget?

4. U is missing from the alphabet. Missing you!

7. He's above himself.

21. You're out of touch. Or as they say in Liverpool: U's out of touch!

The puzzle was sent to me late last night by a friend who obviously thought I could do with a sleepless night. Spent 10 minutes looking at it then posted it. There was no comment with the puzzle it was just as you see it. Almost immediately Tripps posted his long list of answers. Well done Tripps. I can see my # 4 is wrong and some of the other posted answers I would never have got. We need someone to adjudicate. Panbiker where are you?

I plead innocent to this, its all Tripps fault. His posting on play chess against Beth (8) made me dig this old site up Chess a freebie site with 3 levels of play with the hardest being Ann who appears to be a grown up Beth. Just tried a quick game with her and made a draw. Much to my amazement. Now I remember why I dropped it from my play list.
