A few short but pithy items…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s dictionary words are: handjar, hanch, hamshackle, hamose, handy-dandy, hanuman, and zorgite. Please have these words looked up and placed in suitable sentences ready for Professor Mouldie first thing after breakfast tomorrow morning.

  1. Those spam emails do make me laugh! Like with the dodgy phone calls, it would be fun to engage with them but I lack the wit and imagination, never mind trying to scrape the darn buggers off once you allow them to converse with you!
