All good answers Bill :)
Sorry, overlooked ‘Searchin’ answer, I’ve been using my little phone, can’t see a thing on it :roll:
Judy In Disguise, another good’n :)
Bee previously solved the teaser with ‘Shes Not There’ - Zombies!

Thanks for the guesses though :D

Not a clue Bee - all it's done is reminded me of my Latin classes in school a few (ahem) years back... Amo, Amas, Amat etc :lol:

That's exactly what I thought of after I typed the clue Bern... but, on further consideration it occurred to me that you could extend that thought and try a little translation. :wink:

Not at all sure about this one, Bee, so many choices..thinking “Love In Any Language” but nothing doing :)
I’ll go with “Labelled With Love” Squeeze :?:

Shelagh, not that one I'm sorry but you're right about LOVE.... now what's wrong with the way I've written love in many languages...
would it help if I said LOV.....

Ok, Bee, it looks like this one is bombing, but let's leave it a while. :)

Neirher of those, Shelagh. I didn't think this one would fly over everyone's head, so I've changed the punctuation, which will help you.

Phil, the addition of a Q mark and comma hasn't helped (me) but think you may have given clues with BOMBING, LEAVE IT A WHILE and FLY?????

Punctuation may have helped, have to wait and see :)
Is this girl, (GIRL) alone? = a loan (LENT)
But happy? (happy Valentine’s)
Over everyone’s head (HEAD GIRL)
Bombing clue = (MASSACRE)

Try...St VALENTINE’S DAY MASSACRE - HEAD GIRL?

:lol: :lol: some convoluted thinking there, Shelagh. It deserves to be, but it's not that one, I'd have thought you would have got this straight away, as you're sort of on the right lines looking at the words individually. :D

No luck with that one either, Shelagh, you're normally good with your anagrams as well. :D

Not with this one, Phil; :)
Had the girl (Josephine) bombing (Napoleonic War) over head (Jets) girl alone but happy (Yes Tonight Josephine :wink: )
See the reasoning, Phil :)

Hopefully, cryptic gang will be able to provide the answer very soon :D
