Oh... just one more guess to go (I :pray: )
but isn't it annoying :wall: when you've taken the picture :cam:
and your SO identified it in the car,
but now you've forgotten :hmz:

r

I bet some other mites might like to have a go;
some are easy.. some take a little looking around..
You don't need all 10; i was happy to get 5/10 .
nothing ventured .. nothing learnt..

Hi all, I am so sorry about the answers for challenge #33/2014! I am really concerned about Wildtuinman! I have sent him PMs on 5 September and 13 September which he hasn't read to date. Some of the participants are also still waiting for their results. I just hope he is not ill or that he doesn't experience some serious problems of some kind that keeps him from the Forum. :pray:

I am so sorry to hear that Imax! Thanks for the feedback, and please put a note on his desk that all of us are thinking of him and wish him well! :D

Unfortunately not. I found the answers for 31/2014 on p. 49, the answers for #32/2014 on p. 51, and the answers for #33/2014 is still outstanding.

But Guys and Girls, since we know about Wildtuinman's heavy work load, let's not push him for the answers. There will come a time when he will have time to attend to that. I cannot believe, and is so grateful that he was prepared to do three challenges in a row, while he is so busy! A real workaholic! Thank you Wildtuinman! :clap: :clap:
