Could you please edit your post to removed the 9-letter word since the game is still alive?

Words / SPOILER: Word suggestion for Challenge puzzle 8 August

I tried bodhi (the state of enlightenment in Buddhism) unsuccessfully in the recent ********* game.  It's listed (without a capital B) in various dictionaries including Merriam-Webster, Collins and dictionary.com, as well as in numerous reference works on Buddhism and religion in general.

Hi Linda

I don't know if you're tuning in but I'm sure you'll spot this at some point.

I had bashed up egg with our favourite condiment & ham sarnies for lunch.  Extra yum delish :-H

I was scrolling through some pictures on my phone the other day & found one I'd taken inside the palace at Versailles.  It was as we were entering the Hall of Mirrors.  It gives you some idea of the crowd!  We had a guide with our group & one of the things I remember her saying was "if it looks like gold then it is gold!"

Back to work tomorrow :(

Sorry I can't seem to attach it & I can't delete my failed attempt :(  Not sure what I'm doing wrong.  I'll send it to Jack & see if he can work some magic!

Cathy has reported that all aspects of her birthday celebrations went exceptionally well.  One that we participated in was a family lunch at the Courthouse Restaurant at Cleveland.  It has won several awards.  The building itself goes back to 1853.  Our group of 7 fitted nicely into a private room, The Judges Chambers.  We were warned it would be expensive but were pleased to learn that it was not as expensive as the top restaurants in Canberra or the Southern Highlands.

We are looking after Dusty over the long weekend and so he is enjoying some of the walks with Bonnie and our dog walkers, Michelle and Pascal.

Hi Jack

I've got all my chores out of the way this morning before it got too hot. 

Very pleased to hear that Cathy had a very enjoyable day & celebrated her birthday in grand style :)

Gorgeous pictures of Bonnie & Dusty :-*

I've had a tussle with John's rebus but have failed miserably :(  My offering is an expression I'm fond of using ;D

Please remove a letter from the first picture & insert a bit of punctuation. Please change the first letter of picture two & lose the first letter of picture five. You need the city in the third picture & drop the last letter. Oh & please pretend it's all on one line! Hope you can pick the bones out of that :laugh:

       

A Spanish magician tells the audience he will disappear on the count of three...
He says "Uno, dos..." & then poof! he disappeared without a tres!

I need a cuppa ;D


Just had to rush out into the garden as Bletchley Park had a fly past.  It was a Hurricane today.  Next week it's a Spitfire & the following week it's a Lancaster.  I love that - the noise is tremendous & it makes all the hairs on my neck stand on end.  Heaven knows what a squadron of them would sound like!

I’ll see your idiom and raise you another…

Homophones; image 2, second half only; image 4, middle two letters; location, location, location; conceptually one line

...and some naff jokes to keep you amused...

Sleeping comes so naturally to me, I could do it with my eyes closed.

There was a kidnapping at school yesterday. Don't worry, though - he woke up.

Did you hear about the new restaurant called Karma? There's no menu - you get what you deserve.

How do you make holy water? Boil the hell out of it.

What's the difference between a hippo and a zippo? One is really heavy and the other is a little lighter.

Geegaw was the dismay of many of us, Madeleine - I'd never heard of it previously and hope that in future I remember it...

On to today's results: Woo hoo!!! Twenty one today and congratulations go to today’s rosetteers doxydaisy, myself, rogue_mother, blackrockrose, dragonman and Roddles – good job, well done!!! 👏👏👏

Those kicking themselves with rosettenears are yelnats, 2dognight, vizal and Maudland – did MUUMUU get you???

Keeping himself company was Jancsika who, on nineteen, found himself two short to entertain company…

Next on eighteen were auntiemo and ozzyjune with three missing words followed two words back by ozzymAndias…

Scouser1952 must have had other things to do as he made his appearance at eight common words found which is probably the same for ozzyjack who got the seed word and scarpered off to prepare for his daughter’s birthday…

Just twenty eight words will reward you with mavenhood and dragonman*, rogue_mother*, 2dognight and doxydaisy* all got there but Roddles just came up short…  Nice work!!! 😎😎😎 As per usual, the asterisks signify double dignity… 🎉🎉🎉

Hi Pen,
Glad to hear your visit to the peak district was so good.

Cathy has reported that all aspects of her birthday celebrations went exceptionally well.  One that we participated in was a family lunch at the Courthouse Restaurant at Cleveland.  It has won several awards.  The building itself goes back to 1853.  Our group of 7 fitted nicely into a private room, The Judges Chambers.  We were warned it would be expensive but were pleased to learn that it was not as expensive as the top restaurants in Canberra or the Southern Highlands.

We are looking after Dusty over the long weekend and so he is enjoying some of the walks with Bonnie and our dog walkers, Michelle and Pascal.

 

Here is a simple little idiom to get you back in the swing of things.
