Thanks and looking forward to enjoying the wealth of 'cryptos' on the site

Best regards.
I used to do this all the time with the newspaper cryptograms when I was younger (20's, 30's). I lived with my folks for awhile going to school and would always fight over the daily crypto with my mom. This way I wouldn't ruin it for her, but it did drive her nuts that I could do it

I haven't tried it in a long time but I doubt I can still do it. Not sure I could even concentrate that long any more!
