(Old) friend Frank from New Jersey (we went to grade school together!) sent me this puzzle, which I admit I failed to solve … but perhaps you’re smarter than I am!

Can you see what the following words have in common?

Banana
Dresser
Grammar
Potato
Revive
Uneven
Assess

You will kick yourself when you discover the answer. Go back and look at them again; think hard. Then look below the fold for the answer.

In all of the words listed, if you take the first letter, place it at the end of the word, and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word.
