<font color=006600>I got this one from a Bill Bryson book, he ain't a Puzzler but a Iowa born travel writer who's spent a long time in Yorkshire (good man!)...
This is a genuine address put on an envelope in the US some time ago... Where was it sent to?
That's all you get...</font>

<font color=660066>One clue only...</font>
<font color=660000>There are 3 lines to the address...
<LI>First name & Surname
<LI>Town (city, whatever)
<LI>State (Yes, Massachcetts - my spelling's off!)

Was it sent to a Mr.Wood in Johnsville, Massechutas? Just a wild guess, I've never been known to be very good at word games.

Sorry Pzartal, everything you need is in the three lines...
<font color=660000><UL TYPE=SQUARE>
Anything else is a lateral leap from that...
<font color=660066>Still no takers!?! Well then a clue...
John is under Wood & it is over Mass... Any more and I may as well tell you!!!

I figured out the name, it's John Underwood (DOH http://www.brianlumley.com/ubb/smile.gif ) *lol*
But, still being a thrall the rest eludes me!

Yep, Dracul, just extend that logic and see what it's over...

Could it have been sent to...
John Underwood (thanks to whoever got that bit) in Andover, Mass?
Did I finally get one of these riddles right? Could it be?

<font color=440066>Woohoo! It's only taken a month and a bit of help ( http://www.brianlumley.com/ubb/eek.gif )... but it's finally been solved!
*sighs in relief*
Until next time...</font> http://www.brianlumley.com/ubb/wink.gif
