For those of us who fight it out for 13th place...
I've decided that I enjoy your company so much, that I'm going to give you all up for Lent. Which means I'll be out of the competition for February and March, but I'll probably try to catch up to you again in April, since Easter is on the 4th. I imagine I'll get in a few more puzzles this evening.

Have fun. - Gail

If you've got to give up something...
I hope you find many ways to better yourself with the extra time.

See you April 4th!

I was never allowed to give up anything that was good for me for Lent :)

Oh, I feel like I have to give up something I enjoy. I really have been enjoying doing the cryptograms, so it was a likely candidate. - Gail

giving up?
I find it so interesting, as a formerly "practicing catholic", that so many of you young folks are intent on giving something up that you like to do. My own daughter, who was for a very short time raised in this tradition, also does the same thing, which still mystifies me to this day, almost 35 yrs later, because she is not a practicing ANYTHING! For myself, I have thought that perhaps the best way to "celebrate" Lent is to do MORE....more of being kind, thoughtful, honest, sincere.....while at the same time celebrating being alive ( my thoughts are colored somewhat by having to put my beloved greyhound to sleep just yesterday, and the realization that life is really very short!) I will look forward to seeing you again.....but hope you change your mind!:o

That makes me so sad! I hope you are doing well and I offer my sincere condolences. :( Hugs!

Oh, I'm so sorry about your dog. I do know how badly that hurts, and what an empty space it leaves.

Just wanted to add that I'm not Catholic, and I'm certainly not young. I think that it's nice to do something FOR Lent, but I don't think sacrifice will hurt me. - Gail

We just had to have our old dog put down. She was a poi dog. Rescued.

If you take in a poor dog and make him prosperous you will have a friend for life.
This is the main difference between men and dogs.
