G U _ _ _
B E D _ _ _ M
Corrie also solves GUEST BEDROOM.
TONIGHT’S SPA TRIP: Hilton Waikoloa Village
Crossword Round: RED ______
She opens w/ a $650 R, three E’s, a Y for that WC, a single, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to lose her starting amount and the WC. Second, Terri calls up a $1,300 pair of T’s, buys the last vowel of I, but hits the MDW’s right side to give back $1,050. Third, Amy strikes out on the spot w/ G. Corrie’s second turn sees her saying a $550 N, but then S for sorry. Terri follows w/ a $650 L, but then the LaT. Amy next plugs in a $1,300 pair of V’s, a FP W, but then a baddie of K. Corrie then attempts to complete this grid…
– – – – – ( W )
– – – (Y) – (N)
– – (V)(E)(L)(V)(E)(T)
We’ve never had anybody add anything extra…until now — she adds an unnecessary “and” before saying the top across word. After Terri goofs w/ H, Amy gets rid of the “and” and says CARPET for $1,800.
DUDS: G (Amy), S (Corrie), K (Amy), H (Terri)
SOLE LaT: Terri
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Corrie & Terri)
SOLE DQ: Corrie’s “and” addition
Mystery Round: WAYD?
Terri’s initial picks are a T for the 1/2 CAR near $600, a $500 G, and a single E, followed by a $650 L, two A’s, but then S for sorry. Amy secondly FPs a pair of D’s, but then misses w/ R. Corrie thirdly uncovers six N’s for $3,900, buys five I’s and lights up a $500 C before she sees this…
_ I D D I N G / I N
A N / _ N L I N E
A _ C T I _ N
…I dunno if she’ll be BIDDING IN AN ONLINE AUCTION after winning another $4,150.
DUDS: S (Terri), R (Amy)
Terri: NIL/Amy: $1,800/Corrie: $7,150
PP/Express Round: PHRASE
First on Amy’s list are a $550 T, two A’s, but the R fails her again while she’s on the 1/2 CAR near $900. Corrie’s second in line w/ an $1,100 pair of N’s, an E, three S’s for the same 1/2 CAR, three I’s, and the last vowel of O, after which come an L for the MDW, a $500 D, and a $1K pair of H’s. We have…
T H I S / I S / O N E
H A _ _ _ / I S L A N D
In addition to another $3,350, THIS IS ONE HAPPY ISLAND she’s going to — the Amsterdam Manor in ARUBA.
SOLE DUD: R (Amy)
Terri: NADA/Amy: $1,800/Corrie: $16,800 cash & trip MDW

_ _ / _ U N _ Y
H O _ _ Y
Amy repeats said response, except w/ the last two words reversed.
M Y / _ U N N Y
H O _ E Y
Terri’s finally on the board w/ MY FUNNY HONEY.
Round 4: LIVING THINGS
The T lets her down this time. Second for Amy is the BANKRUPT near TD. Third, Corrie forfeits her MDW to the other normal BANKRUPT. Terri then puts up a $1K pair of R’s, but S-U has commenced…
_ _ R _ _ _ _
_ _ _ R _ _ _
…w/ a $1,600 FS. On Corrie’s next turn, she inserts two N’s but comes up w/ a late and bad response w/ MORNING FLURRIES; I don’t think they’re living. Terri then says twin G’s…
_ _ R N _ N G
G L _ R _ _ S
…she was asked to say it again, but she makes the $5,800 solve of MORNING GLORIES.
