And The Winner Is....

Thank you again to all who participated in the puzzle for this week. This week was much closer than last week. I think y'all are getting better at these. I'm glad y'all are enjoying doing these. There were many who played last week that didn't play this week. That is what makes things so interesting. Each of you who played last week and again this week improved in the finding of words.

So....without further delay.....the winner is.....

PAMELAK & SON (108 WORDS....557 POINTS)

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

And I want to make mention of our second place winner.....Bro. Tim with 100 words and 538 points!!! Good job Bro. Tim!!!

The rest of you did well too. Thank you again for participating. I know next week is Thanksgiving week....but I will still be doing a puzzle on Wednesday. I hope many will still participate. Be sure to check back to find out what that word will be and see what you can find in it. Have a great weekend!!

According to your point syste, I guess that is 321 or somewhere around there, unless I got some words you didn't. :)

Thanks, that was a lot of fun. Now my brain hurts. :D

sis. melissa....Thank you for leaving your words. I'm sorry you didn't make it in time. I hope you get them in next week. I hope you will try again....thank you again!

Julie's Jewels said...

sis. melissa....I looked up your words in my dictionary and figured up the points you got and your score is 526 points. I give a bonus 10 points for each word that you find that I didn't. You had several of them. You are in third place in the points count. I do hope you will participate again. Y'all have some real competition in PamelaK & Son. She has won two weeks in a row. I'm hoping that others will take part and try to beat the one who seems to be really good at this. I love tallying up the scores and seeing who has the most points. The most words doesn't necessarily make the difference. It is who has the most words that I don't have that matters. Good job Sis!!

Bro Tim said...

We got closer. I enjoyed this one very much. A couple of word the winners came up with I had but didn't know if they were words. Are you all going to camp this week. Hope you all have a good day. We have a weiner roast and gameday, and hay ride tonight.

PamelaK said...

Wow! And it hadn't seemed to us that we did nearly as well as we did last week. But Bro Tim and his wife were not far behind! We had so much fun, and I think it is almost just as fun afterwards to look at other people's lists and see words we didn't come up with when we had finished racking our brains and just couldn't think of any more!!
Julie, so sorry you have been under the weather. Hope you are feeling much better now, and looking forward to your devotionals starting again next week!

Julie's Jewels said...

bro. tim...yes you did get very close to coming out ahead of PamelaK and her son. And then Sis. Melissa was just a few points behind you. I like it when y'all say you are enjoying these puzzles. I enjoy doing them and seeing how many words I can come up with and then tallying up y'alls scores.

Sounds like y'all have a busy day planned. I already cleaned house (with the help of my sweet hubby) and now I'm going to take it easy the rest of the day and rest. We have prayer meeting tonight. That's about it. Have a great day!!

Julie's Jewels said...

pamelak...yes it was much closer this time. You had two that came very close to coming out ahead of you. I'm glad y'all are enjoying the puzzles. Its fun for me to see what words y'all get. And when y'all get one that seems so obvious to me but I didn't get it I just have to say "ugh!!". But it is so fun!!

Thank you for your sweet encouragement. I feel much better today but still not up to par. I look forward to getting back to posting my devotionals on Monday. I already have a couple that I've prepared with the Lord's leading and His help.

Melissa said...

oh cool, I will definitely have to play again! :) Thanks for tallying my score. I will be away the next couple weeks, so I won't be around, but I'll check back when I return.

VERY IMPORTANT!
