YAY!! Ok Mimsypooh, now retype that puppy EXACTLY like it reads...line for line, if there is only 4 words on the first line...start on the second etc....(we are working this puppy from every angle)
:) we also need to know what the front of your card depicts, with the little blurb on the back about the picture too!
(didn't know it was gonna be this much work, did ya? ;) )

Hein and I have been trying to get it worked out. We keep running into small snags where the words don't quite line up correctly. We get halfway or slightly better.

CC is correct - you have to post it exactly as it is written, line by line.

Gawd blimey!

It made it!!!!!

In which case, as the final episode is about to unfold, it's almost time for the second installment. I deliberately held off until the first one was decoded, but the second one is ready and waiting. And of course, MUCH harder and more devilish

I cave..........I printed them all out...moved them around...tried reading everyother word, every third word....up and down, and left to right!! I GIVE UP!!!
Tell us Gelli, what the hell does it mean?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!

One of the problems that Hien and I have encountered... The code is to take every first word downward, then the second, third, etc. In one card, we had to take two words in a row horizontally to keep it making sense. But, at a point shortly thereafter, nothing quite fit. I'm sure this post makes no sense either.

We have printed it out and crossed each word off as we go and still not making it fit.

Sorry Gelli - we're still trying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
