He has sent me some puzzles that he has had trouble answering, since I have not a clue myself, I thought I would post them here in the chance that you brainy lot might solve them. They are in the style of this: 18 H on a G C (18 Holes on a Golf Course) These are the one's we are stuck on........ 1) 9 G is 1 F 2) 150 P - G C 'E A 3) 15 P in a R U T 4) 7 C in the R 5) 1M = 20 B of C 6) 26 P for a F C S 7) 1 E of the C 8) 2 S on a T Sorry I have not the answers here, but any help is taken with gratitude.

I toyed with the possibility of a crib score, but for one I cannot remember the highest hand score (23? with 1 jack, 3 fives and a jack turn up?), plus F C S does not really meet with anything cribby!

It does help. 150 Pokemon - Gotta Catch 'em All Would it help if I mentioned that I have 3 kids? [This message has been edited by GH (edited 02-12-2002 12:00 PM).]
