These are my favorite too Bernadette. I working on one with Gene Wilder and Marty Feldman as Dr. Fronk-en-steen and Eye-gore from Young Frankenstein on the cover.

Puzzle #14 on page 16 of Spotlight Remember When Word Seek, issue #49, May 1, 2014 is entitled "Dinerese". Unfortunately, no translation of the diner slang was in the answer pages! So, I looked them up. Here's some of them:

AXLE GREASE=butter, BOWL OF RED=chili con carne, BUCKET OF HAIL=glass of ice, CAT'S EYES=tapioca pudding, CHOPPER=knife, COLD SPOT=iced tea, COWBOY=western omelet, COW FEED=salad, ECHO=repeat the order, FIRST LADY=spare ribs, GRAVEL TRAIN=sugar bowl, HOT CHA=hot chocolate, HOT SPOT=tea or coffee, LUMBER=toothpick, MAMA=marmalade, MUD=black coffee, NO COW=without milk, SAND=sugar, SEA DUST=salt, SINKERS AND SUDS=donuts & coffee, SQUEEZE ONE=glass of orange juice, WREATH=cabbage, ZEPPELINS IN A FOG=sausages & mashed potatoes.

There are several web sites on diner slang. The dinerlingo one is pretty good with hundreds of words and phrases. Fun reading!

Thanks, Bernadette, I'll check at the store when I'm there on Thursday and see if they have it yet. Whether it was a coincidence or the same person made both puzzles, it's a neat topic to have again!

It dawned on me last night ("Wait a minute, did she say June?") Ha. One of the magazines I'm working out of now is the October issue of Merit Variety, from last year. That's nice about puzzle magazines----they don't have an expiration date for solving, and they never "go bad"!

That's what I say whenever I get another puzzle book!! It makes me feel a little less guilty for buying something I really don't need. smile

Musty-smelling----looking at it that way, puzzle books can "go bad"! smile It can get pretty humid here and if I plan on storing magazines for any length of time, I use large ziplocks or plastic boxes with tight lids (or both) since quite a while ago, I had some issues "go bad" with mildew.
