Well, my daugher has sent me another puzzle. Anyone interested in helping to figure this out with me?
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson were investigating a case. Dr. Watson came across a clue written in the middle of a piece of paper. The clue had the following letters: BCNOF
These letters are the first letters of words that make a logical sequence of words. What are the words and what is the next word in the sequence.
