  • Frank Ford puzzler on Car Talk

    Just listened to Car Talk tonight, and the puzzler was posed by a Frank Ford. Had to do with making change at a little guitar shop, so I thought it could be our very own Frank Ford.

      I heard that also and wondered why it seemed so familiar. But I didn't make a connection until I read your post. Could well be.

      So tell us Frank, did they contact you and beg for material or was the letter really meant for Will Shortz at NPR instead????

      Those who listen to click and clack will get that.

      edit - Frank beat me to the post button, I guess we can now bask in the glow of a celebrity.

            OK, I'll bite....

            He didn't have anything smaller than a $50 before, but now had a bill of each denomination lower than that - a $20, a $10, a $5, a $1 AND change!

            So... what did I win?

                Yes, but by way of change he also had one of each of the coins, a quarter, a dime, a nickel and a cent, or do you call it a penny ?

                I hope when I drop by, Frank, you'll just say, "We'll just make that a round thirty-five dollars," and save all the time it takes to count out the change !

                    I didn't catch that it was Frank Ford. I emailed my answer about 5 minutes after the puzzler, so I hope I'm in the running.
