BLESS YOUR HEART on solving this one, Lisa.

SOUTHERN CHARM TRIP:  OMNI amelia island Plantation Resort in FL worth $6,550
Tues./Thurs. Gift Tag: loaded Visa Card plus $500 from Hunter

Round 1: TITLE

Her first moves are a $1,400 pair of T’s, three A’s, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to lose $1,150. Second, Sima calls up three R’s for $1,950, two S’s for the trip, an I, a $600 N, and five E’s to clean out the vowels, but the MDW’s right side nails her to the tune of $9,600 cash & trip. Third, Kevin comes up w/ a $1K pair of D’s, a $600 C, but then bombs out w/ K. Lisa then puts up that last consonant of a $650 M…

A / S T R E E T C A R
N A M E D / D E S I R E

…and solves for a $350 bonus.

STUPID DUD: K (VB; what the heck were you thinking, Kevin?)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (ladies)


Crossword/Mystery Round: STICKY ________

Sima leads the way w/ a $650 R, but then A for awful. Second, Kevin comes up w/ a $600 T, a $1,200 pair of N’s, an O, four E’s, a $600 S, and the last vowel of three I’s, but next is L for loss while on the MW near LaT. Third, Lisa spots a $3,500 G, a $650 F, but then M for mistake. After Sima hits the other normal BANKRUPT to lose $400, Kevin says an $800 C, and a K for the 1/2 CAR near $900 before he tries to complete this grid…

(F)(I)(N)(G)(E)(R)(S) /  (N)
/    /   /    /     /   (I)   /   /  (O)
/    /   /   (_)(I)(C)(K)(E)(T)
/   /    /     /   /  (E)   /   /   (E)

PICKET is not the right one. Lisa then says the right one of a $650 W and solves for $4,800; she now has $7,800.

SOLE DQ: Kevin’s one-letter missolve

First, Kevin runs into the other normal BANKRUPT. Second for Lisa are a T for the Hunter gift tag but then R for roadblock. Third in Sima’s future are a $700 S, three TD N’s, an A, but then P for phooey while on the MDW. Kevin follows w/ a $650 L, four I’s, but then a baddie of E. Lisa then digs up four G’s for $14K, four O’s to wipe out the vowel shop, and a $1,400 pair of H’s. We have…

_ A _ H T I N G
