    I have a few differences, most don't matter to the scheme.


    I originally had UU as W. But for some time now, I have liked not using the lines that start with "you" at all. I think it makes more sense that way. I have no reason to eliminate those lines, other than that.

    As for the bingo card, I have a working theory. It's not as elegant as I'd like, but then again, I don't know the expertise of the setter. At this point, I'll be cryptic, and say the following: Take the illegals, set them on the table and grab some zzzz's.

    All else grays is what I've gotten also Molnar - with the same possible background vocals (the first, not the second one).

    Have initially solved the Bingo card to my satisfaction and am still wrangling with the letter box... will keep an eye on how you guys are coming along with it and may throw in some help if you get stuck or side-tracked... hopefully I'll see confirmation soon as I believe it to be one of the easier of the puzzles & don't want to take all the fun out of this thing at the very beginning!

    Also have all the songs done in lyrics with only a few questionable ones.... I still question "My Silver Key" in that I hear "teeth" but it doesn't make sense -
    "Teeth and tears evaporate with sun"?? Tea & tears - yes... but that's not what I'm hearing... So - is there another meaning?

    Hi Mysty - Would agree on the Bingo card - if indeed our solve is correct-

    Letter box - tried different ciphers - nothing yet. It bothers me though that one whole line spells out HANKS. Is that a key?

    It has to be Anytime I see your face or the motif doesn't work, but I think I agree about the last line. Even though there are lots of other words that would have made more sense to use there than All, like

    I have ciphered it to death... worked that first before the playing cards & Bingo, happy Bingo gave up the goods!! (I didn't get your "zzz's" reference though?)

    Finally nailed down the 11 Bible verses tonight. I don't like that they are from more than one version, but what can you do? Now to experiment!

    That hint was Molnars, but I think it's pretty elementary
