Question

Guest

Don't ask me where I got this one. Not as fun to figure out as my last one. But, amazing I came up with it. I don't even know. Tell me how you liked it, in comparison.

Many of these make all the land,

Calling the measurements, at the flip of a hand.

Speaking of hands, mine keep a beat.

Or my way of directing my kids, but more discrete.

Scramble up and jumbled fun.

I don’t even fully understand this one.

I thought you might come up with this one, which is why I added the last part of the second line in this couplet.

Take the biggest word in the second line, and the last word in the first line.

I'm stumped on the first one still....

well I had thought of miles. but the only anagram with snap I found was maniples - " a long narrow strip of silk formerly worn at mass over the left arm by clerics of or above the order of subdeacon"

Sorry, I have to cheat on anagrams, my internal dictionary is not that good...

Haha! That was a riot, reading a technical definition of some word we don't understand.

You found a weird word, because you had the wrong sort of measurement.

Yea, I'm fading... getting late.

The flip of a hand thing is killing me, I'm stuck on degrees, minutes, seconds, etc. but those aren't working obviously

Oh, don't mind the flip of the hand, that will throw you off really bad. You're first guess

mile was really good. It's a measurement of land. But, not distance.

Sigh, I'm sorry I'm shot. I don't want you to have to just give it away. I resign for now. Someone will come along and get it.

pancreas. think the anagram was the hardest part. not so good at those. like the format of course.

YESS!!! I don't even know where I got that idea. But you're right. Thanks. If you like that kind, I have one more made up that I was going to give for palmer if you'd like to try and solve it.

Do you plan to post or send it. I would play along, watch from the sidelines, or not. If I happened to get it first I would not spoil it. How bout that?

The answer to the 1st one

an acre

Add that to

snap

Mix, and you get

pancreas

I didn't see an answer to the 1st part yet & figured a few might still be wondering.
