    I'd like to solve the puzzle! "The THRIFT of victory and the agony of defeat" Knocked 12 items off the list while you all were sleeping. Gotta love these 24 hour PA thrift stores.

    Brian, re: #3 - how can you get a bonus point for grenadine if the base point is for knit? No such thing as a knit grenadine, AFAIK. Grenadine is a weave.

    Getting all technical are we [​IMG]... Find any "knit style' pointy end tie for 1 point and a "knit style" grenadine weave pointy end tie for a bonus point.

    Yesterday, I noticed, peripherally, a not unattractive blonde female of 20-something age who was quite pointedly looking at me while I tried on a plaid, 3 button Structure sport coat at the nearby full length mirror, size 38R. I finally glanced her way and she looked at the fit of the coat, looked me in the eye, nodded, smiled and went on her way. I almost bought the damned thing on the spot until I looked at the content tag. 60% cotton, 40% polyester. :censored:
