caboose -common?
« on: June 20, 2020, 07:12:30 PM »
Having found 96 of the 97 common words in scoreboard, I was denied a rosette by caboose!!!!

I have only one thing to say! - grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!

 >:D >:D >:D

Sorry, Linda, This icon is not demonic enough!!

It was played by only 58 (from 327).

The game yielded only four rosettes (plus my honorary one which I award myself whenever I'm denied a rosette by a word which (imvho) should be classed as rare).

I know!  That is our point.  The old version demon was cute but demonic.  The new one looks like a grinning idiot!  >:(

Not really!  Where is the old, lovely demon, Alan?

That's more like it!  Thanks, Alan, you've made my day ... doesn't take much, obviously!  >:D

I did have my doubts that he wasn't quite the same old demon but Pen thinks he is and, on closer inspection, I agree.  Will put him to good use!!  >:D >:D

Meanwhile ... even though it's probably restricted to American usage, I'm familiar with the word caboose being used to describe a guard's van type unit of railway rolling stock.
Remember: if the world's bees disappear, we become extinct with them ...
