Here Comes The Sun
Yes, summer is here, so here comes the SUN. The inspiration for this week’s theme is something that could only be put in the Odds and Ends section, but it is the motif in the A Grade Challenge and the B-C Learning List as well.

Odds and Ends
Chris Tallman, who was visiting last week, played UNBATHED against me. A nice play, particularly as it scored 106. It wasn’t until much later after I went home that I thought of putting an S in front of it for SUNBATHED. So obvious when you think about it. Not sure if I had an S or not, but it certainly never occurred to me at the time. A little research found these 8 letter words that could be similarly brightened up with an S front hook:
A SUNCHOKE is a type of sunflower
