If you want to add your bit all I ask is that you omit a particular non-consonant from all postings

I’m D, and I am from a county south of London. I own a small dog, am Mum to a young man of thirty plus, a granny and my hubby is a grumpy old man.

I was born in a county in which Blackburn is found. I do not own a dog or a cat. I am an OAP . My son is not far short of fifty years old. My location now is south of Birmingham

Thank you for adding, kind sir. This snow is a pain is it not?


Bobtanian Report 20 Jan 2013 16:45

I am Happy for you both,but I want to think that snow is not a pain,as it is Photographically charming.and ,also proving difficult for budding golf fanatics,It looks as if golf is off for now.


Vintagefinemaid Report 20 Jan 2013 18:08

Photography is good fun. Plants, sky, a stormy coast, our dog in snow, photos of all I snap. How about you?


Bobtanian Report 20 Jan 2013 18:55

Tobogganing is good if your local hill is working, snow drifts look ok,if your skis still fit you, skiing can fill daylight hours with fun.....as can hours in a pub at night,playing domino's or cards, sitting by a glowing log warming thing and supping a glass or two of an alcoholic distillation............


Vintagefinemaid Report 20 Jan 2013 19:12

Alcoholic distillations by a glowing wood burning thingy in a country pub sounds good to this maid. Watching barmaids pulling pints and mixing cocktails. Lots of good food and a group playing country music - bliss

looks as if it's a topic you and I might chat about,using a similar Khz

Django R and a violinist in a hot club du paris jazz club is good


Vintagefinemaid Report 21 Jan 2013 06:55

Morning all, its cold and icy
Django R sounds cool. bring him on man ;-)


Bobtanian Report 21 Jan 2013 19:19

Not many participants to this ...........looks as if its too difficult to find words without this particular non consonant


Bobtanian Report 21 Jan 2013 19:21

yoo cood of corst forgo using this thingy wordpart......


Vintagefinemaid Report 21 Jan 2013 19:35

Workout for brain - that's what this is Bobtanian, not all folk will want to join in though :-)


ErikaH Report 21 Jan 2013 23:22

that, Bob, I would think, is this post's point. It's an illustration of how crucial a part of writing this 'non-consonant' normally is, and how difficult it is to do without it.


Vintagefinemaid Report 22 Jan 2013 16:42

It's hard to do, but that's why I find it fun :-)


Bobtanian Report 22 Jan 2013 20:01

Indubitably---comma, capital M,small r, full stop.capital R--full stop.


ErikaH Report 24 Jan 2013 18:15

Poor visibility in this vicinity is limiting my ability to identify cloud formations, which is annoying, I must say


Ruby Report 24 Jan 2013 18:38

Caught you Reggie - the word 'Identify', complete with an e


Ruby Report 24 Jan 2013 18:45

Brilliant sun today in SC, but cold.

Physical activity class at our local pool was invigorating, with about thirty adults participating. Only two lucky guys among us - I think that both will join us again.


Vintagefinemaid Report 24 Jan 2013 18:56

Thank you folks for trying so hard, brain is hurting now thinking of things to add
Class at local pool sounds good Ruby :-)
To look at cloud formations a sky without fog is most important kind sir


Bobtanian Report 25 Jan 2013 00:10

Lots of posts ,bar 1,
that got it right!

Cloud causing bad visibilty spoils it for young star-gazing fans,a
main point of not buying a looking aid was a lack of good star-watching nights
which allows another point for a happy night in a pub with a pint or two, sitting around a log burning thingy,just chatting....
