She starts w/ a $400 T but the BANKRUPT near the invisible WC gets her just as quick. Anthony secondly takes the frontloading $300 S, two N’s to x7 up, but then E for error. Third, Miffy spots a $00 R, a $300 P and triple O’s, but the A fails a lady again. After Heather’s FPing of the last dud vowel (I) and a baddie of L, Anthony

    Man, this week wasn't a nice one, but we got a R5, which is VERY rare on a road trip.

    And I believe Anthony wanted to simply solve a lot of puzzles. He was pretty darn good.
