ə let’s hope you avoid accidents like that in the future, cp!
when i turned eighteen, i went down to
R E G I S T E R
to vote—and have been casting my ballot ever since. some elections, though, i have to hold my nose as there are simply no decent candidates. this is one of them.our senatorial election is a former congressman (bruce braley) and state senator (joni ernst). neither can say what good things they have done, so they point out the bad ones the other did. so i have to choose between bad and bad! ick! ə

My Grandparents came from (Dad's side) & spoke Swedish. Mom's came from the UK so she had English. I guess that's what it is. I hear some guys from the UK I cannot even understand. JM's grandmother on her Dad's side came from Belgium as an 8 year old child. She could not read or write and went to work in a corset factory for 50 cents a day. Fortunately it was easier to manage back then. She was a formidable little woman. She taught herself to read and write English, French and Flemish - her then, three languages. Fantastic. She was Catherine Elisabeth but everyone called her Babette. Then there are the other parts of her family - her Mom is of French-Canadian descent.

HI there TW. Hope you become a regular. We love regulars.

Kitty, to answer your question, you were the only one who posted a word ending in S after critic had update and did not post S for BLOSSUMS or TACTLESS. The other words posted had A, I and R in them but critic did not post them as being valid. She also did not have M posted but I took a chance that she may have made a mistake which turned out to be true.

OK?

That was a quick game. As usual, critic was peeking over my shoulder.

ER, I have one file in the Documents where I save all the words and use as a worksheet. As things get solved, I delete that portion. Unfortunately, the other day I cut and deleted one line too many. Hence, critic jogged my memory that I think she had the right word.

For her new game,

O F F I C I A L ballot enclosed. Yes, have received my ballot, filled it out and about to take it back to the election office. I sure hope we elect a congress that will get this nation back on the right track instead of executive orders bypassing congress and the constitution. My grandparents and mother had to learn to read, write and speak the English language before they were naturalized. I'm sick of what's going on nowadays!

Question, if it can's end in the letter S, then why are we guessing words that end in S?

(tw: CP's scoring, just prior to your JAUNDICE guess showed that the solution contains the letters S,E,R,O. Hence, ND's guess of BROASTED and my current DISCOVER guess, using the letters S,E,R,O).

ə no dups cp?!
i have lost words or phrases on these games frustratingly often. i finally used my text editor to create a file and put them in there. then, if i forget, i can look at the file and recall it. when that game is won, i delete it from the file.
