  1. abseil, aisle, base, basil, bias, blasé, ease, easel, else, false, fils, isle, lase, lease, lias, sable, safe, sail, sale, seal, seel, seif, self, slab
    feasible is the word using all the letters.
    (I think I actually have heard of most of these, except lase and lias — oh and seel. Fils is French of course, presumably it has a meaning in English too, or maybe it is another “cheat”.)

  2. Sixteen today, Maxine. Not exactly a stellar performance. I missed a few very simple words, which is annoying.
    I’m having a terrible time with Debra’s logic puzzle today! I’ve never attempted one of those puzzles before and it’s quite intimidating. I wish I had a clue how to fill out the ‘worksheet’ part of it.
