Solution to our last puzzle:
A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives. Jackie Robinson
Many of you picked up on the first letter being A and that told you that the three different 2-letter words began with I. Frequently, if the third word is 2 letters, it will be IS.And a really good tip came from coaster123 who says he always starts by looking for the ABCA sequence, in this case found in the 5th word of the puzzle, that gave you the E and youre off to the races.
Made a leap of faith on the third and eighth repeating words, used the comma to determine the sixth word, guessed the connecting seventh word for the phrase. That gave me the initials of the author ... and then it was just a matter of filling in the blanks.
That was tough for me. But when I solved the author, it was easy.
Author first. The rest was smooth sailing. Good for a chuckle.
