    It looks like there will be another step once we have all the trios. Groups of 3 letters could be airport codes, Sue!

    The numbers some times are higher than the number of letters in the words so that is not the way to go. But maybe it is just the first letter in each group.


    And I rhyme with a mix of Spanish and southern accent

    Can't help any more, but thought about Doc Martins for a different kind of shoe. Could rhyme with the cartons. Keep looking for that third shoe.

    I also have thought since it says Amigos, that maybe we are looking at trios, but there may be a "third wheel" one that is just a little different. If we eliminate the true duo, then we could take letters from the 3rd.

    I hope there isn't a list of the third wheels, and then you take the sounds from those and create the answer. (are we supposed to take the replacement letters for the answer, or the letters from the original clue...)

    Why isn't there an asterisk on the disney group?

    Have we missed a group completely?

    There are two asterisks still unplaced:
    *19 talcum taser Malcolm Fraser?
    *16 charm Frasier

    One of them will go with half of the cartoons, the other one with the two non-shoes of:
    5 mourn gunnery Sean Connery?
    2 slob fork
    7 salad cartons

    I went back and checked the numbers next to the names, the only ones that happen to be too high to be used to pull letters are the numbers with asterisk.

    I had the numbers for the words without * typed in but the tekken edit killed them, someone else will have to add them if that looks like the way to go. As long as you are doing the non* ones the counts are OK.

    Some people are lost in the shuffle. I'm shuffling along with the lost.

    sorry about that!

    maybe the asterisks are just to make us see that there are 20 different groups.

    Now there are two options, order them by the asterisk number or group them by non-asterisk numbers. I will try both and see if either one looks promising.

    grouping by numbers won't work at all, some groups have too many vowels and others none at all.

    keeping the order of the asterisks gives us this:
    ?/?-n/y-l/s-w/e-r/e-e/r-h/i-s/s-e/?-h/t-a/e-r/i-a/r-o/h-o/n-?/?-n/y-n/s-?/?-r/n

    I am not sure which letter goes first in the pairs.

    Molner put in asterisks next top the numbers that were Bold in the original layout the puzzle had.

    I went over a long list of shoe brands (http://www.zappos.com/n/bl), but the closest thing I could find was rockport for "slob fork", and I don't think that's what they meant :-/
