    cupboard is the word using all the letters.

  2. 18 today, Maxine. I got ‘cupboard’, but missed ‘proud’. I need to look up bardo, budo, dobra, dopa and dorp.

  3. I would have got dopa, Susan, as it is a neurochemical. But the others, I would not have. I doubt I would have got pard or updo either!
    I will have to start keeping a record of my score so we can compare notes — not very efficient, am I, but I’ll get there?

  4. They missed “duroc” – a breed of American hog and “duro” – a Spanish-American peso. Both are listed in my dictionary. I missed “proud” as well.
