All I can say is:
#1 - a challenge, for sure
#2 - only once... after that you'd be subtracting 2 from 19, then 17, etc.
#3 - the only one that means anything to me is EGG cuz I have chickens, haha.

I'll have to check back for the answers.

Well Ima got #2 so I'll answer #4. The horse's name was Friday.
Maybe if we make this a group effort we can get them all answered before tomorrow.

Great post.

Imma and jamie, #2 and #4 are correct. I'll hold off posting answers just in case anyone can come up with 3 and 5. Have a good day!

#1 isn't easy at all. My brain wants to read the letters.

me too, by about the 3rd attempt you can train the brain to just see colors and not read the words.

Number 3 makes a good case for illiteracy! I knew his horse was named Friday, and 5 eluded me completely as it sounded like it was supposed to read something, not represent something like the scrambled eggs. They are in the USA Weekend magazine, Frame Games, every week.

One this week is:
