The on-air puzzle is called, "Where's It At?" There are clues for two words. The first word contains the consecutive letters "A-T" somewhere inside. Remove the "A-T" and you'll get a new word that answers the second clue. For example, if the clues are "a lampoon and a way to address a king," the answer would be satire and sire.

Challenge from Last Week: Think of a six-letter word ending in a vowel that names something worn outdoors. Change the vowel to a "G" and you'll name a popular outdoor activity. What activity is it?

Answer: bikini/biking

Winner: Woody Anna Dresner of Hilo, Hawaii

This Week's Challenge: From Martin Schneider of Jersey City, N.J. Think of a pair of words that commonly go together. They're part of a larger group, but this pair of words is commonly said together. The first word contains a "W" sound without the letter "W" being in it. And the second word contains a "W" that is silent. (The pronunciation of the word wouldn't be changed if you remove the "W.") Name this pair of words. Hint: These words are probably said multiple times during the course of this program.
