Nothing in Common #11
“Uncle Bob”

Uncle Bob revisits a worthy word challenge. Below, you see a cycle of spaces numbered 1 through 16 and a pool of 12 letters in the center. To begin, you simply take 5 of the letters and anagram them to a common, unhyphenated English word. Write the word in any one of the spaces. Next you must find 5-letter words for the two spaces adjacent to your first word, but you must anagram those using only the unused letters from the pool. For instance, if you wrote the word ACHES in space 4, your words in spaces 3 and 5, must be formed from I, L, O, N, P, R,, and Y. Any two adjacent words must not have any letters in common and each word must use 5 distinct letters. Continue adding new words adjacent to the ones you’ve created. Oh, and the words in spaces 1 and 16 are considered adjacent too.
