As nearly believable as my 65' yacht on Lake Yellowstone which I visit yomping in overland from the Yukon via Yellowknife?

You're not going Walter Mitty on us are you P'ter?

That's better than going gangrenous.

Things must be sanitised then!

Sandi Jan 7 2011 06:44 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
Does that rule out purple prose?

P'ter Jan 8 2011 12:38 AM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
Surely not!

I'd prefer singing

GinnyStar Jan 8 2011 04:07 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
Going with the flow, I don't sing worth a bean! :lol:

P'ter Jan 8 2011 06:14 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
Suddenly had an awful mental sound track of the Tom Lehrer's 'Periodic Table' song parodied to include all the different types of beans.

(Of course: Tom was parodying Gilbert and Sullivans' Modern Major General.)

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
It takes a mind like our P'ter's to make a mental leap like that.

P'ter Jan 9 2011 08:59 AM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
It's known as 'sapientia'!

:razz::razz::razz:

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
That sounds like an animated kind of world.

AnnMarie Jan 9 2011 05:52 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
Or a deadlock on a spelling bee.

GinnyStar Jan 9 2011 06:14 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
Kink up like a rope? :blush:

Sandi Jan 9 2011 06:21 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
or a knitting pattern gone wild

P'ter Jan 9 2011 06:57 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
Sounds like some of the output of my Aunt Margaret. She used to knit us bathing trunks but they always went baggy and saggy as soon as they were wet. They covered nothing, and were extremely scratchy where they allowed the sand and grit to get into various folds and wrinkles.

Sandi Jan 10 2011 12:11 AM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
How terribly ungrateful you are to your hard-working Auntie!

P'ter Jan 10 2011 04:06 AM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
Yes!

She DID knit acceptable school jumpers however, and amazing everlasting socks!

Sandi Jan 10 2011 12:46 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
And did she sew your name into them?

Kugai Jan 10 2011 03:09 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
I think she would've.

P'ter Jan 11 2011 03:52 AM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
I think the naming was done by mother who was good at exploiting 'special offers' and had a wholesale-sized stock of name tapes.

spacedog Jan 11 2011 07:48 AM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
That and knowing to tell you off even when you're a parent too! Her grandson thinks it's funny!

P'ter Jan 11 2011 05:41 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
She certainly knew how to tick one off (in various lingos: she was a classics teacher).

Now, there's a thing: she was also the first lesbian I ever knew.

Sandi Jan 11 2011 07:07 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
What fun it could be to tell somebody off in Latin or some other incomprehensible lingo. Sindaran, maybe?

AnnMarie Jan 11 2011 07:08 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
I think you've been reading Eddings again, Sandi.

spacedog Jan 11 2011 07:26 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
It'd be a knock-out success story!

P'ter Jan 12 2011 03:51 AM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
TRUE

Kugai Jan 12 2011 01:03 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
Exuberant aren't we? :D

jube Jan 12 2011 04:27 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
That we are!

GinnyStar Jan 12 2011 05:04 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
Thinking of those who need our suport!

Kugai Jan 12 2011 07:22 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
True enough, we are a generous group.

spacedog Jan 12 2011 09:43 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
Except when Jube's sleeping through a rainstorm, she'll ignore the lot of us.

P'ter Jan 13 2011 02:31 AM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
Does that make her an ignoramous? :D

Generally, there are a select number of people I like to ignore: constantly!

Sandi Jan 13 2011 01:10 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
You couldn't mean me (I hope)!

Kugai Jan 13 2011 03:14 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
Undoubtedly he'll explain it.

Sandi Jan 13 2011 05:30 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
Well, he hasn't yet.

P'ter Jan 14 2011 05:10 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
On the whole (while I enjoy studying law and politics) I'll avoid all politicians (national and local) and (until they've proved worthy of my attention) police and social workers.

Sandi Jan 14 2011 07:47 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 

Evading those boorish and fractious
Requires finding things to distract us
So we come to MoM
So we can play upon
Games that amuse and attract us!


jube Jan 14 2011 11:16 PM

Re: The Last Letter - Word Game
 
Goodness gracious, poets, pragmatics and ..... me :D
