And This is a good one. Different, too.
Anyone who has read my Newspaper Column or this Blog for any length of time knows my penchant for Brain Twisters, and so this can be no surprise.
But trust me, it’s a good one, and also, it’s not a brain-breaker. Just fun.
Following are ten groups of words. The three answers of each group are made up from the very same four letters. Find the correct answer to one of the three and then twist the letters around to find the answers to the other two.
Six correct is said to be good, and finding eight or more correct is said you must be a genius. I wasn’t a genius. Here goes.

This is a fun quizz and one you might want to share with your children. In fact, if they get it first, they will try it out on you.
Print this out and work on it, because I am not giving the answers out quite yet, and feel free to post your answers.
Oh, and I hope you had more fun solving these, than I had typing them. Almost gave up and deleted the whole dang thing. Have fun and we’ll meet again next week, AND NOT WITH A QUIZ SUCH AS THIS.
