How Many Words Can You Find?

With Thanksgiving holiday being tomorrow I thought about not posting my puzzle for this week. But then I got to thinking of all those that visit and play that don't live in the US and don't celebrate Thanksgiving where they are. So I decided to post it anyway. Besides...it stays open till Saturday so who knows....there might be those in the US that will be able to find time to give it a try sometime in the midst of all that will be going on.

For those who don't know how this works....I give you a word and you see how many words you can find in that word. You get points for every word you find. You get bonus points for words that you find that I didn't. I look up words in my Webster's Dictionary that are questionable. If those words are not in MY dictionary I disqualify them as words....even if you found it to be a word somewhere else. Below you will find the points given scale and the rules....


Here are the rules....

No abbreviations (such as vet for veterinarian)
No proper names (names of people or places)
No contractions (can't...don't...isn't...etc.)
If the word is not found in my Webster's Dictionary it will be disqualified as a word

Here are the points values....

2-letter words (1 point)
3-letter words (2 points)
4-letter words (3 points)
5-letter words and more (4 points)
****words you find that I don't (10 points per word)


Your word for this week is........


CHARITY

(I found 30 words)

Here are my words Sis.Julie,
I had a lot of fun doing the game, because somehow I felt like I wasn't doing it alone, it was a little time I had to also spend with the Lord. I really believe He helped me, and even if I don't think I will win, I had such a great time doing it I feel blessed. There are a few I didn't know and looked up, but I'll see if they are in your dictionary. Have a great day!
