Note: All the crossword submitted to Puzzlers' Cave are designed, created, and submitted on the own time of our members. Our members are generally amateur crossword setters and as such their crosswords may contain factual inaccuracies and occasional spelling mistakes. The commenting and mistake reporting systems allow you to describe problems, to supply positive feedback, or to prove construction criticism to the submitter. The comments system is not for supplying abusive or unhelpful comments.

Reporting Mistakes: If you want to reporting a mistake with one of the clues or words in this crossword rather that leaving a comment then you should use the Report Mistake button. This will leave a message for the submitter prompting them to resolve the mistake.

"...This is a higher quality puzzle in every way than any I've previously come across on this site. Thank you!..."

commented offaxis on 08 February 2007 at 04:49 AM GMT

"...Why don't you all look things up before saying anything. Bum = one's rear-end = butt is perfectly correct. Briandval did say slang. Woolly and wooly can be spelled both ways. Briandval is NOT American, he's British and bibbym01's sentence is REALLY correct: "an American wrote this did'nt they?" LOL In MY opinion, Briandval's puzzles are THE BEST. LOVE THEM...."

"...This was fun. Good work, thanks. Solved quickly, w/simple clues, some could have been tougher. Woolly threw me, but it is an 'either/or' word. Butt is correct, butte has to do w/ mountains, and is pronounced differently. (Some of comments reveal lack of research and need spell-check.) ..."
