Okay, here are the rules:
Here are the rules:
1. You may only guess one letter at a time.
2. After you have guessed a letter, you must wait for another player to
guess a letter before you can go again.
3. The host of the game responding to a guess does not count as a turn.
Should you choose a letter, then receive a response from the member host,
you must wait for the next member to guess a letter.
4. One point will be awarded for each correct letter, 2 points for vowels.
5. Only six misses are allowed in the game.
6. If you wish to guess the phrase, send it to my email, [email protected] DO NOT
post it on the forum. If you
wish to guess a letter, post it on the forum.
7. You must have submitted a correct letter to submit your solution. Unlike
letters, if you submit a "wrong" solution, your are disqualified from
continuing in "that" puzzle.
8. The player who correctly guesses the phrase wins the game. If no one has
guessed it correctly after six misses, then the player with the most points
wins the game.
And here is what you win...you get to create the next puzzle.
(Should you win the game, and do not care to host the next puzzle, you may
pass your puzzle play to the member with the next highest point total)

Here goes:

--- ------- --- --- --- ------ ---
---- -- ---- -- --- ----- ---
---- ---- ---- ------, --- ---- -- --- -----
--- --- --- --- ----- --- ----- - ----.
--- --- ----- ----- --- --- ------- -----
-------- -- ---- -- ---- -- ----
----- --- ----- -- -- - -------- -----.

Good Luck! and let's have fun! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif

Karen Israel got it! Congratulations!

Twas half past twelve, and what do you think?
Not one nor the other had slept a wink.

Appeared to know as sure as fate
There was going to be a terrible spat.
