Many obvious words today! You should recognize the 8th word, and possibly the 10th too. That should get you started. The last two words should will take you quickly to the finish line. Anything under 4 minutes would be good. Under 2 minutes, exceptional.
Solution to our last puzzle is in the first reply below.
Please dont post a spoiler solution in the general posting, but you can post it in my private reply.
Feel free to offer the group your solution time and any tips you have on solving cryptograms, as we have many newbies here.
The way it works is a letter stands for another letter.
AXYDLBAAXR is LONGFELLOW (does not apply to today's cryptogram)
Beware, the game is very addictive. If this is your first time, don't be intimidated.

Its easier to work on the puzzle without having to use your pencil.
Good job, not an easy one, but you made it under 8 minutes and that’s impressive!!!!
Solution to our last puzzle:
*** NEVER INTERRUPT YOUR ENEMY WHEN HE IS MAKING A MISTAKE. NAPOLEON BONAPARTE ***
Sounds like something Trump would say...
These are not as easy as they look when you’re starting out, but in short order they get easier...
Can’t believe it. Did it in 5 min. Must have been rejuvinated when I made an early morning trip to the hospital to see my new grandson. My son was so happy to finally have a son to pass his gun collection on to...lol
Okay, I started with the first word that had an apostrophe and it went really quick after that. I didn’t time it, but it seemed about 3-4 minutes.
Agree completely. I thought I was hopeless for the first 4 or 5 I tried and then something clicked. This one was about 4 minutes for me. I think part of it is developing confidence.
Congratulations. It’s a very special time for your family. Enjoy & all the best wishes.
Personal record. 3 minutes.
Excellent!!! SEe, in just a few days, you’re a pro!!!
Hold on here. Is this the Perfect Lady, who just a few days ago, was doing these with fear and foreboding? Now you’re a pro.... Under 4? Great job... (go play the lottery tonight, might be your day....) :-)
4 minutes is an excellent score... Takes one minute, just to write the puzzle out...
3 minutes is an amazing score, if you’ve never done these before, after just a week or so...
I think you’re hooked? :-)
Took me about 2.5 mins. Do you have a pinglist for this?
Yes... That’s an excellent score. You’re in the top five today....
I think it also helps that I have worked as a court stenographer for over 40 years ...
