For someone who is ignoring me, I sure have your attention.

...my last post about the word we are moving from was wrong. It's not CONSTRAINT, but RECONSTRAINT. Rather than simply add an S, I have chosen to remove an N, which scrambles up to what I've done in the plural form:

RETRACTIONS

Now, let's take it from there! :0)

RETRACTIONS

I hesitate to change A to I, perhaps removing another

RESTRICTION, because I'm really not sure it gets us anywhere...

Bran listed a new state to the ones she has visited.
Says it reminds her of the Netherlands.

But never left a footprint there. Grounded for three hours at Grand Rapids Airport, due to a thunderstorm over O'Hare. Two scary interrupted approaches makes me fear thunderstorms more now than N to R TERRORISTIC threats.
Still I add Michigan to my list.

To get out of the 3 R's (hopeless) in order to get rid of one , it needs a stepping stone. Via (legal) (S to D) TERRITORIED to (R to Y) DETERIORITY ( which it may possibly be, dunno). It needs cutting down the number of letters. (?)who.

Nice to see you are trying. I've got nothing.
