Sondi thumbsup

niteowl, almost there. All you need is to name the letter sound from the remaining letters that would complete the answer. Looking at Sondi's answer. "Knee" is the answer for "O" (patella location). She adds the sound of "B" to the beginning to come up with B+knee or Beanie for #6 (Cecil's partner). Clear as mud? slapforehead
