Sat., 1/17 Barry C. Silk
« on: January 17, 2015, 09:46:47 AM »
THEME:   none, but only 26 blocks!
Bass output   ALES [first I thought low notes even though I enjoy 3 or 4 stouts a week]   
Some property safeguards   PRENUPS [I thought dogs, but I'm old]   
Unpopular spots   ZITS [I was sure it was "pits"]   
Francs and beans?   MONIES   
Heard of fuzzy math, but a fuzz guitar?  And I liked the Ventures' "Walk, Don't Run."   
RATING:    ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
