I didn't have much trouble with my gewgaw. However, I was very nearly a rosettenear until I realized that I had played weaving, but not weave. Doh! Fortunately I made this realization before the final bell, not after.

Hi Jack

Just a quick post to say I'm back home.  I've had a lovely relaxing short break.   It was much cooler up there - a welcome relief from all the heat we've been having.  I enjoyed a ride out on David's Velocette yesterday.  I find it very exhilarating & it's a great way of seeing the beautiful scenery :)

I hope your daughter had a smashing birthday & enjoyed her special day :)

I'll return with a proper post tomorrow.

Well, today’s twenty four word puzzle was a doozy and our rosetteers rogue_mother, ozzyjune and ozzymAndias need to be congratulated for finding them all!!! 👏👏👏

We had many more rosettenears with 2dognight, dragonman, Roddles, doxydaisy, Maudland and myself all missing by that single word – if I’d got GEWGAW I’d have had another showy trinket to add to my collection… (This game never fails to educate me with its obscure common words!)

Today’s ballerinas were vizal and Jancsika who were two two short…

Celebrating a significant birthday today were auntiemo and ozzyjack who were both twenty one today…

One common word further back was blackrockrose on twenty whilst yelnats was one word behind her…

Scouser1952 was sweet sixteen today (never been kissed???) and rounds out our rosette attempts…

With a total of fifty eight words in the bag, dragonman still failed to get a rosette and yet was our best placed maven having exceeded the answer to life, the universe and everything by a fair margin – others achieving mavenhood today were rogue_mother*, 2dognight, and doxydaisy… Well done all!!! 😎😎😎 Rogue was our solitary rosetteer who achieved mavenhood – great work!!! 🎉🎉🎉

I've just been reminiscing with the early posts in the 7 by many club and have been getting quite melancholy that Les303 is no longer with us...

I came across this one in particular and thought it worthwhile quoting for all those out there who would like to join...

I received a personal message recently, asking how one becomes a member of the 7 by many club.
Anyone who is registered for the forum & has played the 7 by many game is automatically an honorary member of the club.
To become an official club member, all you have to do is post a comment in this thread.
 I post a comment / opinion each day when the game has closed on what i thought was a " special " performance that deserves recognition however i cannot possibly monitor everybody's performance without missing something so i encourage others to take the initiative & post their own highlights / comments / opinions from any particular game.
And do not be shy about telling us about your own " special " performance, it might be as simple as achieving your first " best score " , rosette, maven or perhaps even a cham & trophy or something like finally being able to match or even beat the likes of Mike, Maud, Rose, June, Alan, etc...on the scoreboard or even more likely you may prefer to just rubbish me & my comments & opinions.
Either way, it is all in good fun & i can think of no better way to distract ourselves from all of the negativity & limitations that have been imposed on our communities due to this bloody covid virus.

Vale Les...

I hope I have it right today and my list is fully up-to-date.

Congratulations to our rosetteers rogue_mother and dragonman who found all forty eight common words in this disturbing puzzle – everyone else in our cohort were LESS ABLE… :P :P :P Again, you’ve both done well!!! 👏👏👏

Our rosettenears in all likelihood had a “doh!” moment when the final word was revealed, didn’t you 2dognight, Roddles, blackrockrose and Maudland???

Too right, and I needed some BALSAM for my lack of rosettability.

I too have wanted Alan to be spared from an avalanche of outer fringe suggestions. However,  we all have  encountered his finely honed wit tempered by his good nature. He’s quite able to fend

On a personal note, I find RTTs suggestions to be annoying yet easily ignored. I believe them to arise , also, from an impish good humor. It’s hard to figure out who is the straight man in this duo. They both seem to be having fun.

RTT gave me advance warning that he had drawn up a big list of word suggestions from that puzzle. I could have asked him not to post them, but I actually tried a few of them myself, so I think they're worth considering...eventually.

No, it's not so important to me but, looked at another way, I have saved others from having to suggest these as, can be seen, they all have at least some modicum of legitimacy, as shown by the references... I would be surprised if these all hadn't been tried by at some other player.

I am more than happy for Alan to give a yay/nay judgement without having to go into any detail as per his usual adjudications.

There must be a psychological term to describe someone who profusely apologizes to someone for what he is about to do and then goes ahead and does it anyway!

Seriously, RTT, is it really so important to you that all these words be accepted that you need to inundate poor Alan?
