Round 1: PEOPLE
She starts us off w/ a $1,500 N trio, a $650 S, a $1,300 pair of D’s, seven E’s, and three A’s. But after a $650 T is the BANKRUPT near TD to lose $3,600. Second, Ed gets the WC w/ three H’s, but NOT the MDW w/ a C call. Kevin, however, gets that sparkly green wedge w/ two R’s, but misses w/ F. Stormy then puts up a $1,300 pair of M’s…
T H E / _ R A _ E
M E N / A N D / _ _ M E N
_ H _ / H A _ E
S E R _ E D
…she realizes she is among THE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE SERVED.
DUDS: C (Ed), F (Kevin)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Stormy
Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER
Both men strike out on the spot w/ R and T, respectively. Third in line, Stormy digs up three N’s for the 1/2 CAR near $600, an E, two I’s, and a G for the other 1/2 CAR. Next are a $500 W, the last vowel of O, an L for the sears wedge…but then M for MAJOR DUD. Ed then puts up a $500 D, the last vowel of A, and a $1,300 pair of C’s. The near-complete board…
C _ O W
L I N E
D A N C I N G
…he performs a little CHOW LINE DANCING for $1,550.
DUDS: R (Ed), T (Kevin), M (Stormy)
Ed: $1,550/Kevin: $0/Stormy: $4,300
PP/Express Round: WAYD?
Here goes Kevin w/ a $900 N, four E’s, three A’s, an S for the 1/2 CAR near $900, four $500 T’s, but then a baddie of O. Stormy then plugs in the obvious twin G’s for $1,200, and a $2,400 P trio…
G E T T _ N G
P A _ P E _ E _
A T / T _ E / S P A
…in addition to another $3,600, she’ll be GETTING PAMPERED AT THE SPA at the SuperClubs Breezes in THE BAHAMAS worth $6,900.

Round 4: THING
Next on her list are a $600 N, two $500 G’s, but then L for loss and it’s S-U time…
_ _ G _ _ _ N G

…w/ a $1,550 FS. Ed next fills in the R, but is way off w/ RAGING RIVER. One S and two T’s later…
_ _ G _ T _ N G

BANKRUPT TRASH: $3,600
$100K Bonus Round
It was won on the Friday episode of “Shopping Spree”, and it’s back again — the ’17 Ford Explorer XLT. Stormy lands on the N of WIN.
Two letters in the bottom to start…
_ / _ _ _
_ _ _ T _ R
DHMA only gives her the obvious vowel…
A / _ _ _
_ A _ T _ R
No extra consonants for her on the board was A BIG FACTOR in this $34K loss.
MY RATING: 6
I’ll see you Wednesday night after the election.
