Postcards from Paris
The Ramblers share their April in Paris with the neighbors.
June 23, 2008
By clue 2, Rose and Roger Rambler sent postcards on consecutive days of the Eiffel Tower, to the Mitchells, and to the Rutherfords; and by clue 5, they sent postcards on consecutive days of the Arc de Triomphe, to the Furleys, and of the Louvre. The only possible overlaps between the clues would have the Rutherfords receiving the Arc de Triomphe postcard--no (7)--or the Furleys receiving the postcard of the Eiffel Tower and the Mitchells getting the the Louvre postcard--no (1). So, all six days of sight-seeing and postcards are given between clues 2 and 5. If the three in clue 5 were on Monday-Wednesday and those in clue 2 Thursday-Saturday, the order would be the postcard of the Arc de Triomphe, the one to the Furleys, the postcard from the Louvre, the shot of the Eiffel Tower, the postcard to the Mitchells, and the card to the Rutherfords. By clues 1 and 9, then, the Ramblers would have mailed the Wilsons a postcard on Monday from the Arc de Triomphe and would have sent postcards on Wednesday and Thursday, or vice versa, to the Handelmans and the Bradfords. However, the latter two recipients did not receive cards sent on consecutive days (6). Therefore, Rose and Roger sent a postcard of the Eiffel Tower on Monday, to the Mitchells on Tuesday, to the Rutherfords on Wednesday (2), of the Arc de Triomphe on Thursday, to the Furleys on Friday, and from the Louvre on Saturday. The postcard of Notre Dame wasn't mailed Wednesday (4) or to the Furleys (8) on Friday, so it went to the Mitchells on Tuesday. By clue 3, the Ramblers didn't send the Musee d'Orsay postcard on Friday; they mailed it on Wednesday and on Friday sent a postcard of Sacre Coeur to the Furleys. Neither the Handelmans nor the Wilsons (9) got Thursday's postcard, so the Bradfords did. By clue 1, the Wilsons got Monday's postcard from the Eiffel Tower, while the Handelmans got the Louvre postcard mailed Saturday. Rose and Roger Rambler sent their Paris postcards in order

  • Mon. - Eiffel Tower to the Wilsons
  • Tue. - Notre Dame to the Mitchells
  • Wed. - Musee d'Orsay to the Rutherfords
  • Thu. - Arc de Triomphe to the Bradfords
