    Since Domino finds our re-creations so much more full of humor; my version of the grid:
    Wow, Sslug!

    That changed a lot of weird words for me. Thanks!

    When you piece together the picture of the horse, the cowboy is missing. Why?

Sluggy's crossword grid layout makes more sense, so does this mean that 11 across has 4 letters? If so, why bother placing that horse on top of the grid? Is 11 across really 6 letters long instead of 4? There is an obvious answer as a six-letter word too.
    Hi Genetic Blend!

    Curiously, the horse's nose points down to the word "mountain". I think the answer to Peak is correct. Anyway, If you look at the puzzle pieces of the horse, you'll notice the rider is missing. I think this is significant.

    Happy Troving,
    Beth

    Default Help with the Crossword Puzzle

    In one of the other threads, some people admitted that they have not been able to solve the crossword puzzle. I was sure glad to hear that, as I have not been able to complete mine either. So I am hoping that we can work together and share some answers. Isn't that what tweleve is all about?

    Here are some of the ones that I feel pretty confident about:

    2 Across: Treats using a quirky tone = ??????
    6 Across: Changes documents = FORGERY
    7 Across: 501s = LEVIS
    11 Across: Not your Papa = MAMA
    14 Across: Swallowed hard = ?????
    15 Across An uneasy knee = ???????
    16 Across: Not together = ?????
    18 Across: Park players = ????????
    19 Across: Tiffany's delight = DIAMONDS

    1 Down: Esq. plural = LAWYERS
    3 Down: Flavored beef = SMOKED
    4 Down: Sugar and spice and everything nice = GIRLS
    5 Down: A state of bigness = ????????
    8 Down: "Let the _____breathe!" = PUPPIES
    9 Down: Moves along quickly = SCOOTS
    10 Down: The final plate = HOME
    12 Down: Peak = MOUNTAIN
    13 Down: You can pick these = FLOWERS
    17 Down: Dahlonega known for = GOLD

    I do have some other words that will fit in some of the blanks where I have the question marks, but they would change the words in the other direction. So this is about as complete as I can get my puzzle. Does anyone care to help?

    Maybe "MOUNTAIN" isn't correct for 12 down. Because then 16 across, which is "Not together", could be filled in as "APART"; and 18 across, which is "Park Players" could be filled in as "CHILDREN". But then we need a whole new word for 12 Down.

    The words "JEANS" and "LEVIS" both fit in to 7 across. But we have to be careful because there is an arrow pointing at the first letter.
