Fun and Games

What did our great-great-grandparents do for fun? We know they didn’t have TVs, DVDs, iPods, or computers . . . but they did have puzzles!

Here’s an example of the type of puzzle that was popular in days gone by. Called a rebus, it’s a word puzzle that uses pictures to represent words or parts of words.

Can you solve it? 😉

Think of it as a farmer’s “proposal”.
“Melon” is not quite the correct word in the 5th line!)

  1. I can’t figure out what the thing in front of the word “hue” is… But I do have all the rest! Canteloupe!!!!!! Hahaha.

    I used to do these all the time when I was a kid.

    Crystal says: I emailed the answer to you. Chris! 🙂

    In a few days, I’ll put the solution to the puzzle here in this post.

    For now though, I will be happy to email anyone who asks a question about the puzzle!
