This month there were two entries in the contest. Both of them got the laddergram right. The solution was TEAM LORE.
The entries came from John of English Wilderness and Ratty of The Everyday Adventurer
But the final winner was Ratty, since he also sent an essay using the 12 words from the puzzle. The words are 1. trail, 2. liar, 3. air, 4. routes, 5. routs, 6. ruts, 7. astern, 8. terns, 9. sent, 10. lamed, 11. dale, 12. lad. Here is the story by our imaginative friend, Ratty!
The lad was such a liar. He claimed the air routes sent him to a ship in the midst of a flock of terns. While he stood astern, the ship turned into a wagon that was in a dale full of ruts. He was seriously lamed by stepping into the ruts on the main trail, so he routs the terns from the water to carry him home. What a liar!
Now for the top commenters from March. I never did get February done, and I apologize, because I do like to thank those of you who interact with me in some substantial way. Anyway... here's how March came out.
There were 40 people who left comments, and a total of 229 separate comments (not counting my own responses to them).
