    I sure wish I could get to these puzzles sooner. I solved it after midnight expecting to be able to add something to the post. Pucklady had solved it 6 hours earlier.

      the Sunday Puzzles usually take a bit longer (although even those are usually solved by midnight).

      Sunday Puzzle will go up at 8:30 EST / 5:30 PST tonight, so if you can come back this evening there should be things you can add. Plus it will be fun to have you as part of the party.

    •  regarding plural, both spellings are correct... (0+ / 0-)

      at least according to Dictionary.Com:

      noun, plural man·goes, man·gos.

      1. the oblong, sweet fruit of a tropical tree, Mangifera indica,  of the cashew family, eaten ripe, or preserved or pickled.

      So while mangoes is the preferred spelling, mangos is also quite acceptable.

      I could have used mangoes and done a 7-row 4-column puzzle -- but I liked the challenge of creating a 5-row 5-column puzzle better so I went with mangos instead.
