PUZZLE, March 19th, 2013

Previous Puzzle: There were several correct answers--congratulations to all!
Here is an example of the correct answers:
  1. u … super (u/us/sue/sure/super)
  2. e … hamper (e/he/her/hare/harem/hamper)
  3. o … erosion (o/so/son/ones/snore/sooner/erosion)
Other answers were possible.

 New Puzzle
Let’s try the same thing this week. Add one letter at a time to make a new word: example a to adios (a/as/sad/dais/adios)
  1. o … honor
  2. i … detail
  3. i … elation
There may be more than one correct answer again, so more than one bonus point may be awarded. All words used must be in the dictionary, not a proper noun, and each one must build upon the previous word.

ZEINAB: Almost--you can't use proper nouns, and that's what "noor" is;-)
MARINA: A good answer:-)
