This is my first attempt at posting a 'daily' puzzler.... (Look for me to do this about once a week, folks, until I can find some diabolical sources of information to test your wits!)

From the stuff outside the tree to the middle of it, name in order the different layers you will find as you JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE LOG... Og...og...og...... (I love the reverb)...

Hey TT,

How technical do I want to get? You don't even want to go there.:twisted:

We make the call? Everybody gets ice-cream? Is this how you would ref a basketball game? Okay, the ice-cream I can see, but c'mon man, you're supposed to show some authority. Take control of the game.:D

Tom

OK, Tom, I want you to down screen for the low post. Mango, V-Cut back out to the perimeter and look for the skip pass from Larry Norton... :-)

I'm gonna throw some weasel fur Eric's way for the fast answer and two ounces of Weasel Spit to Lawrence for listing the funniest response! :D
