After two tricky Monday Time Killer Puzzles, I thought I'd back off the hard stuff and give you a much simpler (but still fun to do) one!
Below is a word ladder that contains 9 of the 10 three-letter words identifying parts of the human body. When you finish the ladder, figure out the 10th word and fill it in for the final answer. The other 9 are all alphabetized throughout the word ladder.
How a word ladder works is simple: Figure out what word fits in to the space to the left from any of the clues and fill in all the words until you have completed the puzzle. The word immediately above or below will only have 1 letter changed, and the letters are not rearranged or scrambled.
For example, if the clue was "Fido, Lassie or Lobo _______ ," the answer would be DOG. Then if the clue for the next word was "A thick mist," you would replace the 'D' with an 'F' and the correct answer would be FOG. One letter will change in forming a new word as you work your way up (or down) the list. Do that for all the words and you'll be ready to finish the puzzle.
Technically it is Heartland-related, for all the cast and crew have all of the ten body parts that are contained in this word ladder. At least they had better! :D
