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. :)

I believe revo explained a few weeks ago that a submitted word had to have
two of the same letters before the second letter was posted.

I would yielded to you tw since you had already started. Sody will get smarter when he gets to my age.

CP often has fun with the words in between. Sody was worried he broke the computer - I have to explain to him regularly that the internet is NOT the computer, just the idiots with the line attached to it to bring us stuff. I get Oh! TW you are just fine and actually I find those kinds of things a bit helpful.

deferring to ColoradoPapas win with "RAVISHING" ... sorry for my inopportune attempt at a WORD after thinking that "SAFARIING" was a winner ... these games are fun, --but it's not always easy to see who goes next :) By The Way ... My WORD was going to be "TERRABYTE" ... thinking that I need to upgrade my 'puter to a bigger HD or RAM ... 2 to the 71st or 10 to the 21st or 1024 exabytes or 6 sextillion bytes ... or, --just paper and pen to deduce the words offered and the WORD to win :)

We have had internet connection problems (have you seen the commercial where the girl calls in and the clueless guy at the internet provider really DOESN'T get it? )I feel our internet is somewhere down that road.
I am even sorrier than usual as R A V I S H I N G was the game winner. Which meant CP is the game owner at present. And with all the trouble with the internet I am lucky to get on here at all. I sure hope they fix it. Maybe I better go and take a nap. I usually hit the sack at night and do not usually post during the days. That is my puttering time.
.Which brings me to a word for this game>>>P U T T E R I N G.

t-w, that is because SAFARI is both a noun and a verb which is an interesting view. Not much goes that way but I imagine that is due to the original source for the word. In Swahili (according to my huge dictionary) it is safariya. Never catch me with that word. Promptly forgotten.

I think Sody deliberately misspelled that word to get it to stretch across 9 letters. Spell it

C O R R E C T L Y

and you only get to 8.

We got upset about the shooting at Parliament. How dare they do that! Then I got to thinking that it may have been a deliberate assault against Malala who was to get an honorary Canadian citizenship that day. I think she is someone who will go down in history for all she has done. I have a Saudi friend here who was a teacher in Saudi Arabia and could not wait to get away from there. She is so delighted with our country and she wrote a book about her journey. She is a lot of fun and a nice person to know. Hooray for the Saudi women who can get away.
