Family of Friends (2 boxes and growing) - 05/20/2003 Verified okay.
In order to find the first letterbox in this series, you must first fill in the missing words in each of the following sentences. Then, just use the correspondingly numbered letters from the fill-in-the-blanks to complete the paragraph at the end.
Note that you could probably solve the actual clue for this series without getting even one answer from the fill-in-the-blanks section. If you like puzzles, by all means feel free to try to solve this the "hard" way first. :-)
We intend to make this hike a growing chain of boxes, but will keep the number mentioned in the title accurate (minus any mystery or otherwise special boxes, of course).
Finally, in case your browser or printer won't deal with images correctly, you can view this clue in a text-only format by clicking here. It doesn't look as pretty, but you should have no problems whatsoever viewing or printing it.
Fill in the blanks:
Lorna: As any pharmacist knows, drug reps give you lots of toys, and even a few useful marketing tools; none seem quite so popular as Allegra facial tissues, which do not, however, contain even the slightest bit of , the active ingredient in Allegra.
Carl: One of my most bewitching friends and I enjoy watching , a TV show about three sisters entrusted with powers to help the innocent.
Ben: , the operating system used by Slackers Wearing Red Hats (possibly named Susie or perhaps Debbie Ann? Whatever, just get me an Icepack to put under my Hardhat, and stir some more Mandrake into the Caldera'n, as I quietly strum my Lute hoping for Stormy Yggsdrasil to bring a Stampede of Rocks, Dragons, and Blue Cats from Antarctica).
Ox: Fermented from only the finest honey, has satisfied many a thirst at great celebrations over the millenia.
Shannon: Maidenhair fern, like all other plants, manufactures its cell walls from , the polyscharide which makes up over 90% of the Earth's biomass, and which happens to form the basis of a dear friend's Ph.D. research.
Sherri: With her great skill at , I will never again entrust this art of capturing images on film to anyone else. (Okay, can we say "cheese"? I couldn't think of anything better...)
Amy: Martha Stewart seems almost a bible to me, and always a source of good gardening and homemaking ideas. This periodical I love to share with my one dear friend who really knows when "Its a good thing"
Okay, now figure out how to get to the first box:
