How Many Words Can You Find?

Here we go for another week of puzzle fun. I had a fun time seeing the results so close last week that I decided I'm going to try to make it more challenging each week now. No more long words like I used at the beginning. It makes more work for me and makes it far too easy for those that are naturally good at this game. I'm getting new players each week which thrills my heart. That is what I want...is to see more and more people playing and making the competition stiff and the fun endless. This week I asked my husband for assistance. He came up with a great word that I know will be hard for you but should bring fun results in the end.

Again I will explain the rules below and ask that you put your words in a comment in SINGLE COLUMN form to make it easier for me to put points beside each word to add them up. I will not publish comments until Saturday after all the answers are in. I will leave this puzzle open until Friday night and will post the results of the puzzle on Saturday morning.

Here are the rules.....

~~~Anonymous comments with the answers will not be published unless a name is given with the answers so I can name a winner (no one wants to see that "Anonymous" won)
~~~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...this is the only way to keep it interesting.

Here are the point values....

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

Have fun!! Here is your word for this week.......

We have been so busy the last few days but we worked really hard and had so much fun. Just when we thought we could not think of another word, we did! But I'm sure there will probably be some we still missed that others have. LOL! Please tell your husband this was a great word!!
