Same rules as usual...

COME ON IN AND HAVE SOME FUN. IF YOU PLAY, BE SURE TO CHECK BACK REGULARLY TO SEE IF YOU HAVE WON, OR IF IT IS YOUR WORD - TO UPDATE FOR OTHERS. :)

O L E A N D E R S ----- I have some trouble in that I tend to jump to the next page without checking to see if my word came out okay. JM says it is easy to do so slow down.

JM says that word is SCRIMSHAW as she took classes in it but it was not her cup of tea. She has an artist friend who made us a lovely scrimshaw piece we have hanging right beside where I am. Her friend used old piano keys (white) for her work. I have seen SKRIMSHANDER which is the Dutch spelling.

Shame on me. I failed to give revo credit before for his finds. Blame it on me hurting all over from the fall on Monday. Saw the doc yesterday and if I don't start feeling better, get some xrays.

'Twas a precarious time indeed. Not my cup of tea but it is fun to see the crazy movies they do. I see CP is having some of the same problems I have been experiencing with this website.

Yo - HO I am up too late.

I figure you Las Vegans would come up with T U R Q U O I S E , as both the color and the stone are in abundance the last time I was out there.

Your game, CoPa.

Looks good to me and JM says it is fun working with silver and turquoise as no matter what ones does it comes out very sharp and nice. She does the silver stuff and gold from time to time. Not often. Her hands are getting so crippled with arthritis that she rarely does more than watercolors which she calls the forgiving art works.

Sorry about my post from last night... I was falling asleep at my computer, and never got a coherent explanation of CoPa's last word. He posted the S. I cannot even explain what "CoPa lands the Texas..." means.

_ _ _ _ _ _ I S E

(O,T,R,U)

C H O C O L A T E - CoPa places E and finds O and T
S K Y D I V I N G - critic places I and finds S
S H E L T E R E D - Sody credited with finding an R
T R A U M A T I C - That was too T R A U M A T I C, to see JM place T and find U
R E C T I T U D E - No help, Sody.
F A L T E R I N G - Another bust, JM
P O I N T L E S S - CoPa posts S, so his guess really wasn't P O I N T L E S S
