Yet another NON-poem ...

Let me Know what you think, either way, OK?






FUN with X-WORDS


© - Tom Hyland - 3/25/12

An Attempt to Present a Diagram-Less Cross-Word Puzzle.

Can I do it Correctly?
Can you Decipher it?
Will it be too Difficult?
Let us See ...

To be Sure, this will be Un-Orthodox,
And Not Done in the Traditional Method.

DOWN ...

7. Down - Dignitary coming April 8th - 11 Letters.
Hint ... Think of Green Eggs & a Hare ... Not Ham!

GOT IT? IT’S A ‘GIM’ME’!

ACROSS ...

14. Across - Opposite of Knight - 5 Letters.
Hint ... Middle letter is 2nd letter of 7. Down ...

18. Across - Mournful - 3 Letters.
Hint ... Center letter is 2nd letter of 12. Down ...

19. Across - Nickname of 14. Across - 8 Letters.
Hint ... 3rd letter is 3rd letter of 7. Down ...

20. Across - ‘Bro’ of ‘Peewee’ - 2 Letters.
Hint ... ‘Jersey Barrens’ Denizen ...

21. Across - Synonym for Cur - 3 Letters.
Hint ... See 12. Down ...

22. Across - ‘Honest’ Guy - 3 Letters.
Hint ... Middle letter is 7th letter of 7. Down ...

24. Across - Complainer, Grumbler, Whiner - 6 Letters.
Hint ... 4th letter is next to last letter of 7. Down ... ...

DOWN ...

12. Down - N.J. ‘Devil’ - 7 Letters.
Hint ... It Ain’t ‘Mephistopheles’ ...

14. Down - Elec. Abbr. - 2 Letters.
Hint ... Metric for 1,000 of them ...

15. Down - 13th letter of Greek Alphabet - 2 Letters.
Hint ... English is ‘n’ ...

16. Down - Latin abbr. for ‘against’ - 2 Letters.
Hint ... Nor ‘for’ ...

17. Down - English abbr. for Latin ‘per’ - 2 Letters.
Hint ... Apiece ...

18. Down - ‘You old so and _ _!’ - 2 Letters.
Hint ... as conj. Indicates ‘likeness’ ...

23. Down - Cautious - 4 Letters.
Hint ... 3rd letter is last letter of 24. Across ...


THAT’S ALL FOLKS!
15 CLUES - 15 ANSWERS ...

HINT ... make Sure you get 7. Down FIRST!

DO NOT SCROLL DOWN ANY FURTHER
FOR ANSWERS ... UNLESS YOU WISH TO CHEAT!



ANSWERS ...

7. DOWN - EASTERBUNNY

14. ACROSS - KNAVE

18. ACROSS - SAD

19. ACROSS - WUSSALOT

20. ACROSS - ED

21. ACROSS - CAD

22. ACROSS - ABE

24. ACROSS - MOANER


12. DOWN - MATLACK

14. DOWN - KW

15. DOWN - NU

16. DOWN - VS

17. DOWN - EA

18. DOWN - SO

23. DOWN - WARY


Was it too difficult with NO Diagram?
Did I ‘screw up’ any of the Numbers?

HINT ... 7. DOWN is in the Very Center of the Puzzle!

Bear in mind that you need to use LOGIC in
order to properly place certain letters where they Belong. This means 'jumping' around a bit.

ALSO - this was my First Attempt at such a venture ... SO ... Do Be Kind!

I'm not into crossword puzzles, but very creative.

I have a head-ache. Loved the pics. Fun-ny. It's very clever, but I am spoiled rotten on milk-toast poetry. Obviously not what was written here. Whew. Took some time to create this one, TK. Well done!
