Excellent, Sondi! grinch

I've had The Grinch going through my head for a couple of weeks now. My granddaughter was in a dance recital with the Grinch theme. She was an adorable dancing present.

Cue - The sight of your granddaughter on that stage must have been a real gift to you - and I'm sure it melted the heart of that Grinch immediately!thumbsup12



3. I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in the department store and he asked me for my autograph. Shirley Temple

1.The reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live. / George Carlin grin12


Cue, I think there's something wrong with #2. There are 31 groups of 3 letters plus 1 single letter. There are 30 groups of 3 dashes plus 1 of 2 dashes. If my math is correct, there are 2 dashes missing somewhere. headscratch

Good solves, ladies! thumbsup12

Sondi, they do such a nice job with this dance review every year. Last year she was a Who. This year she was a reindeer and a dancing present. They get so excited!

Jema, good answer. I'm sorry that I had #2 wrong. Maybe I was using the new math. lol12 I've since corrected the mistake and added the two spaces where they belong.
