    This round was easier than the first one – thanks! Good way to start my day.

      The first two are definitely Difficulty Level: Easy, the last one I would say is pretty tough. Thanks for giving it a shot!

  2. Woohoo! Two out of three this time!

    Embarrassed about the third, though, because Frazee’s one of my favorites.
