    Thanks, will be a good activity for our upcoming vacation that will be pretty similar to what we are doing now - staying home, but the weather will be warmer and we can sit outside!

    We aren’t on vacation yet, but two copies are printed waiting to go. My wife will probably finish it much faster than me because she loves stuff like this.

    Got plenty! Of course the Austin Healey on the diagonal!
    Seems as if more words on the upper half. Do words such as fan, pep and hat count? Or foreign words like sal?

    We finally got to it - wife was pretty quick even is she didn't know/understand some of the words. I did pretty good except for some reason the Jaguar and Triumph words eluded me for an irritating long time. Fun activity to kill some time.

    Did the puzzle today - thanks!

    Are you right handed?

    SWMBO and I have been watching many British Detective Shows (Cozy Mysteries) and I notice that not a single word was spelled out right to left, nor bottom to top nor angled in any direction other than left to right top to bottom, so, now we must investigate.

    It was an APP that laid out the words. I just came up with the words to add to teh puzzle but had no control over how they got laid out.

    Rats, another dead end in my investigation, off to find another area of inquiry.

    JP, i noticed the same thing. The sloppy way i drew my lines made it more difficult to find some of the adjacent words (at least that's my story and i'm sticking to it!)
