before I leave -- does this image work? -- it's a wolf reflected in the eye of an owl (just found it) - i can see the wolf, but that may be because I know it's there :)

gw... the image is a little difficult to see (see something but not a clear image of a wolf). A shame because it looks like it would be pretty cool full size.
12:18 am

I still see the old image, GW. :/
12:21 am
jenwould

well GW I'm sorry, I feel awful writing that. Must be my eye sight. My apologies...
12:22 am
GreyWoulf

jen - no need for apologies -- it's what I thought on seeing the shrunken icon as well

The grid usually gives enough headaches without my icon compunding the prob ;D

Hi Mitch. I stopped last night at 301 and returned this morning to ferret the last few out. I finished. Obsessed, that's what I am! :o :D

How are you?

hello to all
Zubie how goes the ankle healing ?
2:44 am
zubie

Much better, Blaze! Swollen but not as much and less painful. The walking that I'm doing is slowing things down, but after next week I'll be able to rest it :D
2:45 am
Blaze

zubie are you able to use a cane to take some of the pressure off of your sore ankle?
2:46 am
Dianne

Help, please - on the De4/6. I have the one to judge/consider and the water one but can't find the last one.
2:46 am
Paddytt

Good morning, has anyone got clues for the Te6/24 & Te7/36 please? I only need these 2 to finish.
2:47 am
Blaze

de 4.6 what people do when they change furnishings the de**
2:48 am

I suppose I could, Blaze, but I'd feel strange :D
2:48 am
Dianne

Blaze - thanks. Once again I was headed in the wrong direction.
2:49 am
tbear

2:49 am

2:51 am
Dianne

zubie - have you tried the elastic ankle thing they sell in the drug store? My husband had a bad sprain and the doctor suggested this and it really helped him.
2:55 am
zubie

Dianne - is it that velcro stuff? I'm thinking of getting it this week.
2:59 am
Dianne

zubie - no - it is like an elastic sock but open at the heal. My husband said it made him feel much more secure and it helped with the swelling as well.
3:00 am

3:37 am
davetins

Dianne, did you get your se6??
3:39 am
Dianne

davetins - yes I got it and I thanked you for the help.
I then looked it up and found out it is like a mini-tsunami.

Nearly finished but debating leaving the last few for tomorrow so I have an"excuse" to log in in the morning:)
3:40 am

3:41 am
Haz1558

I'm just getting started - how was the grid?
3:41 am
Blaze

haz nice to see you.. not a bad at all
3:42 am
MissyMe

Hi Balze :) I need these

ge 5/ 16
ge 6/ 27
ge 7/ 48
3:42 am
lshult

I'm here too, just been babbling hard and not reading the chat. Words not flowing any more so decided to see who's there.
3:42 am
Haz1558

That's good - I don't have a lot of free time today so hopefully I can get it completed.
3:44 am
MissyMe

Blaze Those three are the last ones on the list, in order
3:44 am
ramix

hi blaze...de6/30 pretty please...:)
3:45 am
Blaze

the root for the three words is ge* (like map class)
def: of 5/16 " A hollow, usually spheroidal rock with crystals lining the inside wall." Just keep adding to the root word
3:46 am
MissyMe

ramix de + ga/47

:)
3:46 am
Blaze

de 6/30 slang for basketball or de ++ what you hunt
3:48 am
ramix

thanks :)
3:49 am
Blaze

I am over and out for now....
3:50 am
lshult

blaze- got the ge 5 & 6 , but the ending for the 7 just won't come to me?
3:51 am
MissyMe

Thank you :)
3:52 am
Dianne

lshutt - think of Homer's Ode--- for the ending.
3:53 am
MissyMe

Good clue :) I was trying to think how to answer that one
3:55 am
MissyMe

Okay these are the other two I got stuck on. They're both the ones towards the bottom of the list. :)

de 6/ 24
de 7/ 40
3:55 am
Dianne

Some times the light bulb lights up :)
3:55 am
ramix

de + what you make calls on minus the h...and its past tense
3:57 am
MissyMe

Thank you remix :)
3:57 am
MissyMe

Dianne lol
3:58 am
ramix

still stuck on that ge 7...the homeric ending isn't working for me!
3:59 am
MissyMe

Lemme think of a way to put it

Its the sometimes "vowel" you need to add to the end of the word
4:01 am
Haz1558

Ge plus type of poem (plural) plus vowel like letter with value of 3
4:02 am
Dianne

ramix - look at the last several E words for the letter you need.
4:03 am
MissyMe

And add that last vowel/consonant to ge6/27
4:04 am
ramix

aaaaargh...it's official. i'm dense. i'm totally lost. still dont get it
4:06 am
ramix

never mind...got it! i was thinking of the other homeric ending (e4/6) so it got me confused
4:06 am
MissyMe

Say that little jingle to yourself kids say to remember they're vowels a...e...and sometimes...*

then add it to the end of ge6/27
4:07 am
MissyMe

cool :)

de 4/ 7 anyone have this one?
4:07 am
Dianne

ramix - Do you have the Ge 5/16 and 6/27? If so go to the last few E words and ad the 2nd letter to the 6/27.
4:08 am
ramix

dianne..got it. thanks for all your help everyone
4:08 am
Dianne

ramix - glad you got it :)
4:09 am
Dianne

Missy - there are 7 in a week but spelled differently.
4:09 am
Haz1558

de 4/7 - uses the 'sometimes' vowel
4:12 am
MissyMe

Got it...thanx lol Why do they look so easy AFTER you get them?
4:14 am
Haz1558

Some of them look easy once you've got them. Others just look completely implausible, but this game has certainly stretched my vocabulary!
4:15 am
MissyMe

Haz...I'm amazed all these strange words. I've done puzzles for years but I think I haven't run across as many odd ones as here on this game
4:16 am
Haz1558

I agree - I think new people get frustrated by all the words that they don't know and almost offended that words exist that they haven't encountered. The rest of us seem to be content to learn something new every single day!
4:17 am
MissyMe

It's possible because most puzzles I've played usually don't allow anything but English words...and of course we're all international so many cultural words are included
4:18 am
Haz1558

It's a bit hit and miss with the foreign words, though. Still, we live and learn and continue to babble.
4:18 am
zubie

Phew. About time, too! 158 words 4.65 1914
4:18 am
MissyMe

Wow Zubie! Nice :)
4:19 am

Well done, zubie!
4:19 am
zubie

Thanks, Haz, Missy! Tell me that I'm spending too much time here! :D
4:20 am
Haz1558

We're ALL spending too much time here!
4:20 am
MissyMe

*looks around guiltily* Well, I don't think you are because I know I'm not and I see you here a lot...
4:22 am
mousakka

clues for ge 7/48 please.....
4:23 am
Haz1558

ge 7/48 works off ge 5/12. Ge plus type of poem. Add plural for ge 6/27. Then add penultimate letter of alphabet for ge 7/48
4:24 am
MissyMe

ge 7/48 add the sometimes vowel/consonant to ge 6/27
4:26 am
lshult

can anyone help with the ae4/4
feel stupid, but have monkeyed until my fingers want to drop off. somehow still missed it?
4:26 am
zubie

Ooh thanks, Missy! :D *Sigh* This babbling addiction!
4:27 am
MissyMe

zubie I hear ya :)
4:27 am
Haz1558

Right, I must go and do useful things. We've just had a new dining room suite delivered and I have to replace all the china etc in the cabinets. My dear husband was being helpful yesterday in taking stuff out, but managed to smash three crystal glasses. I think I'll get the things back in before he comes back to help again...
4:28 am
MissyMe

Haz lol When husbands help and break things you just hate to show disappointment. Take care bye
4:29 am
Haz1558

I managed to stay calm but my daughter gave him a good telling off! Talk about reversal of roles!
4:30 am
MissyMe

That must have been a picture...and probably startled both you and your husband :)
4:30 am
zubie

MissyMe, this is for you. No, I will not explain why. :D

((((((((((((((MissyMe))) )))))))))))))

And no, it has nothing to do with our conversation just now :D
4:30 am
Haz1558

We're both used to being told off!
4:31 am
MissyMe

Haz lol

Wow Zubie...thank you hon *gathers up her hug and tucks it away in her heart*
4:35 am
zubie

Well, I'm off now. See you all for the next grid. Hugs to all!
4:35 am
MissyMe

Nite Zubie :) I'm headed that way too


Xmas shopping tomorrow...ugh
4:48 am
Eva

Good morning! I always seem to emerge between time zones -just as you overseas (from me) guys are finishing and before my compatriots are awake. Began typing away around 4:30. What a ridiculous time to wake up and it has nothing to do with schedule....just when my body says. Should have been born on a farm. Haved 110 and grinding away. Does anyone have a mercy clue for the c7?
4:51 am
Dianne

Good morning Eva - Think of Frand Sinatra.
4:52 am
Dianne

You know I meant Frank :)
4:54 am
Eva

Thanks Dianne! That did it. I'm still missing one 7 -have a c, 2d's, an e, a g and a t. What am I missing?
4:56 am
Dianne

Eva - the are two C7's - think ham and swiss.
4:57 am
Eva

Thanks again!
4:58 am

You are welcome.

Good morning everyone :)

Could I please have some help with the ae5/12 and the last se6/24?
5:27 am
Yoink

Hi Lola, I haven't got the ae, but I have one se6/24, the clue I read was se followed by what you scratch, spelled wrong
5:28 am
Yoink

Oh, just got the ae5, sounds like a word for assistants
5:32 am
lola100

Hi yoink...and two big thank yous! :)
How you doing today?
5:33 am
Yoink

Just enjoying a lazy morning at work, the guy I share an office with is off this morning so I have had plenty babbling time! Down to 68 words to go
5:35 am
lola100

Good for you! I have a cold and my toddler is home today :(
At least it was a nice, gentle grid today though :)
5:36 am
Yoink

Aww, hope you feel better soon. Not changing hamster for bird today?
5:37 am
lola100

To be honest I just didn't feel like it :(
Won't be around for too long anyway, my nice warm bed is calling!
5:39 am
Yoink

Fair enough, I didn't really want to lose my kung-fun hamster either, I may go back to it another day
5:41 am

Foreign words??? Nooooo!!!!
5:41 am
lola100

lol! Yeah, he was very cute! Well, it was nice chatting to you but I'm going to have an early lunch and then dose myself up and retreat to bed (toddler willing, of course). Need any clues before I go?
5:43 am
Yoink

Oh tons! LOL but the 2 d7s would be handy
5:47 am
lola100

Okay, the first one is the plural of the de6/27 before it. Think decipher. The other is the past tense of the de6/27 before it which uses your first po4/5 :)
5:47 am
MissyMe

de7/40 de + co5/14
de7/40 de + what you make calls on minus the h...and its past tense of one above
5:48 am
Yoink

Thanks a bunch Lola and MissyMe, got them :)

movieman

Welcome, everybody to this, another day, another Babble........

This one may seem easy to some of you folks, but don't rest on yer laurels, 'cos I'm pretty damn sure Dr. God's got something sneaky planned to celebrate no. 10000 in less than a fortnight's time...
5:51 am

Youre welcome :)
5:52 am
MissyMe

Is he going to give us more time to complete it?

And hello :)
5:52 am
movieman

Oops, I think I overdid it with the zeros.......

I meant no. 1000......

*slaps forehead very hard*
5:52 am
Yoink

Hi Movieman, maybe a 10000 word grid? :-D
5:53 am
Yoink

Or 1000 then, heh
5:54 am
MissyMe

hehe I was thinking maybe a week to complete the 10k one
5:54 am

Hi movieman :)

I'm off now guys. Have fun and maybe see you later :)

I have wasted far too much time on one of the ye4x6's, obviously I have got the easy one.
5:57 am
MissyMe

arg 8 words left
5:57 am
MissyMe

ExWren Im missing the harder one too...I've been monkey typing everything (but obviously not the right one)
5:58 am
stillcrazy

ye 4....think yippee
6:02 am
Yoink

Both ye4s are plurals, one an old version of yes still used in votes - ye** or nays, the other is plural of a desire for something
6:02 am
licketySplitAUS

Why not? It's a word. Techno has been a word since the 80's!! :D
6:03 am
ExWren

just got it, I was only using the 'e' to the right of y!
6:03 am
MissyMe

Yoink Thanx...it was that last clue you gave I was missing. :)
6:04 am
MissyMe

licketySplitAUS I found two other words in the grid that are not acceptable lol
6:05 am
licketySplitAUS

MissyMe... so did I and it is too much that foreign words are ok but not the good old slang!!
6:06 am
movieman

Does anyone else find the vowel words as difficult to locate as I do....

They are so damn inconspicuous...
6:06 am
MissyMe

licketySplitAUS I take it your in the US like me. Oh those terrible foreign words! :D Well, it certainly is increasing my vocabular.
6:08 am
MissyMe

Movieman Yes...after typing over and over they start to blend together. I end up mispelling words I know the grid doesn't accept. I'm like, Wha???, come on thats a word! Then I retype it and its accepted...hehe
6:08 am
licketySplitAUS

No LOL, not in the US... I actually missed the word "COLOR' in one Babble becasue of the 'foreign' aspect!!
6:09 am
MissyMe

I was thinking that very thing today, the subtle differences in our spellings and how it may be hard to complete a puzzle because of it.
6:11 am
MissyMe

Anyone get the sa5/16 word yet?
6:12 am
Yoink

The Enable dictionary accepts English and US spellings though
6:12 am
movieman

Missy - I agree...

I reckon there should be a version for all you wonderful folks across the pond with your alternative spellings, and one for everyone else...
6:13 am
MissyMe

Yoink Is that an online dictionary?
6:13 am
Yoink

MissyMe, a 3 letter word for speak and then what you have to prove your age
6:13 am
licketySplitAUS

MissyMe
a type of hammer misspelt and missing the second letter
6:15 am
MissyMe

Thank you both Got it :)
6:15 am
Yoink

The enable dictionary is the one which Babble uses, it stands for Enhanced North American Benchmark LExicon
6:15 am
licketySplitAUS

Then again, anything I type is misspelt!! LOL :D
6:16 am
MissyMe

lol
6:17 am
MissyMe

Yoink So the link to it is thoe question marks by the words?

MissyMe, no that takes you to Dictionary.com which feeds from various sources but sometimes doesn't have definitions for words allowed by Babble. You can find out a bit about the ENABLE dictionary and d/l a version of it here: http://www.haversack.com/whack aword/dicts.htm

9:36 am

9:38 am
harpjane

TSM-I just looked for a link to the calendar, couldn't find it. It's a local thing. I'll keep trying. It's hysterical! And a demonstration of the mindful abilities of TSM's everywhere.

Getting closer on the de--words. Three to go. If the elusive 6/27 I'll post a clue. After I de 5/14 my car.
9:38 am
Bugzy

I think a better word would be de-po4/5, to get rid of X-rated mags and videos :)
9:39 am
Miyavi_fan

X-rated magazines and videos? So of course I choose now to come in!
9:40 am

...It's like in my school's German books. The books feature a family called the Koch's, to teach the kids German. Bearing in mind that Koch is pronounced Cock, and that these books are going to be read aloud by teenagers, could the authors honestly not think of any better name?!

hello everyone: can see with babble my xmas decorations are never going to get out...was not going to play but......
2:45 pm

ea5/12 = past tense of ea4/4 just before it...
2:46 pm

Bugzy....wow! I thought of doing a cardinal cuz I've seen one in my back yard the past few weeks...the males are so pretty! my pix looks very close to yours!!

2:48 pm
Babbler

I use Paint, the one that's in Accessories. What do you use?
2:49 pm
Bugzy

That's why I picked the cardinal, too EB - I put up the birdfeeders and saw my first cardinal today. Love seeing them ! Yours is much more creative than mine, though :)
Hi Speedfreak ! Decorations can wait!!
2:49 pm
EasternBlue

same thing...yours turn out so darn cute!
2:49 pm
Sherry

Hi Speedfreak!
2:50 pm
Babbler

LOL!! well that's cos I am too!!! (so sorry, couldn't resist!! ) :D

I use airbrush. Do you sketch yours and then fill them in? I'm wondering how you get your colours.
2:50 pm
Jera

Thank you hurshy, I was trying to spell that, just wasn't twisting right!
2:51 pm
EasternBlue

Babs - I don't usually use the airbrush...I use the pencil or the 'brush' and then fill in with the 'paintbucket'...most of the colors are on the palate, but I do customize some of them....
2:53 pm
Babbler

oh yes, that's what I meant, the paintbucket. I just discovered that the other day. still finding my way round. Oh! You might know.... I double clicked on the colours, and now I have 2 squares in the selected thingy. I only want one. how do I change it back?
2:53 pm
EasternBlue

I think you select the one you want, and then click 'ok'....
2:55 pm
Babbler

I did that.... but I still get two little squares, one of top of teh other. I can use the R or L button on the mouse to choose between the two. That feature. I don't know how I got it or how to change it back!!! : D
2:56 pm
Lehita

tks jera
2:56 pm
EasternBlue

Babs...hmmm - not sure...if you close out & then open paint back up, it should 'restore' the presets! : D
2:58 pm
Babbler

*giggles*... did that too, EB!! it's no biggie, I just have pay attention...... (or get the wrong colour!) :D
3:01 pm
EasternBlue

Babs - if you "L" mouse click - it will give you the top color...if you "R" mouse click - it will give you the bottom color...
If you want to change the bottom one back to 'white' - go over to the color bar on the right and then R mouse click on the white box...
I think it's to give you the option of using 2 colors at once - with the R or L mouse click! (just monkeying around with it!)
3:02 pm
efor1124

any clues on et5/14?
3:04 pm
M3

!!!!! HELP pe 4/5 not the horrid green things lol thanks
3:04 pm
EasternBlue

Babs - i've discovered that if the 'bottom' box is selected, if you use the eraser or 'cut & move' something, it will be the default back color instead of 'white'
3:04 pm
Babbler

cooooorrrr!!! I am soooo gonna have a go at using both colours together later on!!! can't wait!! :D
thanks, EB!

ps: you're inspiring a lot of people with this icon drawing business, did you know that?

3:37 pm
mab

It is an Eastern Bluebird. They are pretty birds that for a while were somewhat scarce due to habitat displacement. They are country birds that need a large amount of space between pairs of birds.

Allyen: Where did you go in Africa?
3:47 pm

3:54 pm
Alleyn

South Africa. Amazing! Stayed in Falaza Game Park and also went through HLUHLUWE-UMFOLOZI. Giraffes, Zebras, Elephants and so much more..........
3:57 pm
mab

Sounds wonderful. I went into the bush of Zimbabwe a few years ago. The sounds of the animals, especially at night, and seeing them without a barrier between one and them is incredible. That's great that you went. I never saw giraffes, except in the distance, very far away.
4:02 pm
Alleyn

Will try and give you animals rather than grandchildren for the next week or so ........ failing miserably this evening but after a good night's sleep who knows?
4:02 pm
EasternBlue

Alleyn...wow...sounds wonderfully exotic! never been on safari, but I think it would be so cool!
4:03 pm
EasternBlue

mab - actually, my name is part of my last name & my favorite color...I didn't even know there was an eastern bluebird until your pix today! : ) LOL!
4:05 pm
Alleyn

& blow me I've managed a joke giraffe! Had intended on using my photos but tomorrow is another day.
4:05 pm
EasternBlue

mab - I always joked with my husband that if we ever had money to spare & wanted to buy a racehorse, I would name it Eastern Blue... 8 D

shorty

hey eastern blue
4:07 pm
mab

Oh yes, please, Alleyn. I love seeing photos that people take on their adventures. Welcome back.... You know what I mean.

EB: there is a western bluebird too, that looks slighltly different. My ex-sister-in-law has a country home in Dutchess County, NY and has a pair of bluebirds each year. They are lovely.
4:07 pm
Sherry

Hi Eastern! I'm very inconspicuous (don't even know if it's written like that..) today...
4:08 pm
Babbler

not the same bluebird from the Shirley Temple film?
4:08 pm
EasternBlue

mab - bluebirds & cardinals are both so pretty...
4:09 pm
EasternBlue

Sherry - you're probably being good & actually working on the puzzle!
(I'm on conf. calls at work & trying to Babble at the same time!)
4:09 pm
Sherry

Eastern: lol! Yeah, I wanna finish that one.
4:10 pm
mab

I'm crazy about birds of all kinds.

I don't remember the bird in Shirley Temple, although I saw every one of those movies multiple times as a child. I think my mother was hoping I might be influenced.
4:11 pm
Babbler

I think I've seen it once....... they made it for her cos she had a bit of a strop cos she wasn't in the Wizard of Oz! (or so legend has it) :D
4:12 pm
EasternBlue

mab - hee hee hee!

the only thing I don't like is the Alfred Hitchcock "THE BIRDS"...freaks me out every time birds swoop around me now!
4:13 pm
Babbler

i hate that film The Birds............. *shudders*
4:14 pm
Sherry

Babbler: my mom saw it and eversince, she hates it when there's a flock of birds flying by, like in autumn! lol!
4:15 pm
Babbler

thank goodness that never happened to me!!! can you imagine me in Trafalgar Square if it did!!! LOL! :D
4:15 pm
EasternBlue

Babs...I'm with you - back in my high school days - I ran track (oh to be that fit again!)...running past a hedge on the sidewalk - a flock of winter swallows (I don't the actual name) swooped out around me...I screamed so loud 2 cars driving by stopped & made sure I was o.k.!! I was MORTIFIED (as any teenager would be...)
4:16 pm
Babbler

oh, EB, you poor thing!!!

something along those lines happened to me a couple of years ago...... I was out for a walk somewhere in Dulwich (leafy London), and I walked past a big house, protected by ge5..... and one came after me!!!! All the drivers were looking at me run away!! LOL! :D
4:17 pm
mab

EB, that would be a great name for a horse. A friend here has a thoroughbred, a retireed racehorse. He is her second as the first she bought was just too poorly socialized to even be stabled with other horses. Ollie, however, has been wonderful.

Ok got to go. Waiting for call from vet about my cat's blood test. Back later. (we can't get DSL or whatever it is, here because of the mountain/hills; and I wouldn't be able to afford it anyway).

6:22 pm

6:55 pm
EasternBlue

evanout...I was just a wee bit confused as tomorrow's theme for picts is "green"...and then saw your comment about the cow...I put 2 and 2 together and came up with zero (I was never that good in math!!)

EasternBlue

6:56 pm
spatialbean

EB did you draw your cardinal? Berry berry cute.
6:56 pm

6:56 pm
shalee

are there any clues for co6/24? I think my brain is no longer working.
6:56 pm
evanonut

but the answer to babs question is then quite obvious, she must make a booger.
6:57 pm
shalee

never mind, thats not what I am missing!
6:58 pm
EasternBlue

evanout - it's in Babbler's "bio"...(click on her 'person') icon to see the bio...

Spatial - yes...I did draw my cardinal...thanks!
6:58 pm
evanonut

someday i'm going to go pro, then i shall boggle your minds with my icons, until then i shall admire and enjoy!

7:02 pm
spatialbean

7:05 pm
harpjane

Babbler, do the children sing that song in the UK?
7:06 pm
EasternBlue

harp - as an FYI...she's 'painting' her picture for tomorrow - so not looking at the chat quite as much (just so you don't think you're being ignored!)
7:06 pm
EasternBlue

Spatial - so true...I'd love to get a photo of him sometime!

A particular period of history, especially one considered remarkable or noteworthy.
A notable event that marks the beginning of such a period. See
7:20 pm
spatialbean

ch1212 what bing crosby does and what he does in past tense

cr 2/12 etc
7:20 pm
EasternBlue

cr - think of Bing Crosby or Frank Sinatra singing a song...they were cr____(ers)...& the 7 is the past tense of the singing...
7:21 pm
spatialbean

add en to co 4/6 and past tense
7:21 pm
ch1212

7:27 pm
tbear

ch1212....only 6 to go...the other ro5/16 not the one you hang on to ...pls
7:29 pm
EasternBlue

luvmypom - the grid uses the Enable dictionary - some of the 'words' are derivations & won't supply the meaning...some we 'see' in many grids & those are commonly referred to as "Babbleverse" words!
7:29 pm
EasternBlue

luvmypom - welcome too!
7:30 pm
renfield

luvmy - i believe the words are based on the enable dictionay
7:30 pm
ch1212

tbear, think of a type of cheese and drop the 'fort' at the end.
7:30 pm
EasternBlue

tbear - I don't have the 'r's' yet...
7:30 pm
tbear

anyone...pls co5/14 the third one???
7:31 pm
ch1212

tbear, co5/14 third one -- it's the plural of the co4/6
7:32 pm
tbear

ch1212....thx,had tried for ages...
7:32 pm
EasternBlue

switch the last letter to plural...from the 4 2 above it...
7:32 pm
spatialbean

7:44 pm
luvmypom

thanks EB -- I did a little lurking before buying in. I had wondered what the two letters clues were about. Found the Anonymous site. It is a definite help!
7:46 pm
luvmypom

EB - btw.. laundry done. dishes ... not so much. :P
7:46 pm
EasternBlue

yes...swmbo (another player) set up the Bab Anon..Brandy Jack posts the stats daily (when he can)...
7:47 pm
luvmypom

Where does Brandy Jack get them? From Dr_God?
7:47 pm
EasternBlue

luvie - ooo...dishes done (hubby)...laundry not (but I do have to go to the laundry mat - which makes it a little more of an effort!)
7:47 pm
EasternBlue

luvie - he has a computer program which generates the stats...
7:48 pm
brandyjack

I have a program that generates the entire wordlist and then gernerates the stats from that.
7:49 pm
Babbler

Hi Brandyjack!! Did you see the article Dr G wrote? You're mentioned!!! :D
7:49 pm
EasternBlue

ah - there he is himself!
Hello BrandyJack! Love your bluejay!
7:50 pm
renfield

hi brandy! hi babbler!
7:50 pm
evanonut

hooo boy, i just found the naughty word. i love it when there are naughty words.
7:50 pm
Babbler

EB - *refresh*........... I just chopped up the first pic!
:D
7:50 pm
luvmypom

hi brandyjack -- i'm a newbie just being brought up to speed around here. you must be a programmer?
7:50 pm
brandyjack

Havne't read it yet. Thought you had to pay to read it.
7:51 pm
hokie carla

Brandyjack, do you still post the 2nd letter list? If so, do you remember what time today (so I'll have a general idea where to look)?

Thanks!
7:51 pm
Babbler

you do.......
7:51 pm
EasternBlue

Babs - very nice...similar in fashion to your other...
7:52 pm
onyx

there's a naughty word? i usually get those first
7:52 pm
Babbler

yes.......... I'm gonna play with chop up till my next big discovery! lol ! :D
7:52 pm
evanonut

i'd love to pay to read it, but then i couldn't really justify not having an icon.
7:52 pm
brandyjack

I write a few programs. But I don't go near any serious programming languages like C++ or any of the C variants. In fact, the program this is written in is old GWBasic from the PC-XT days........
7:52 pm
luvmypom

evanonut-- do you mean the po/4 word? *hee hee*
7:53 pm
evanonut

that's it luvmypom! i have a certain fondness for that word. i like the way it sounds
7:54 pm
luvmypom

omg brandyjack -- i had to do a tiny bit of basic "back in the day" -- my brother is a programmer, but old school cobalt stuff.
7:54 pm
Babbler

hi ren!! (soz for delay........... it's my artistic temperament, donchyouknow!) :D
7:55 pm
luvmypom

evanonut -- the way it sounds ... or the way it looks? lol *climbing out of the gutter now*
7:56 pm
EasternBlue

hokie - you can always find it under the right-hand link - Babblers Anonymous - General - Daily Stats...
7:56 pm
evanonut

luvy, both (on way it looks in word form only may i clarify) its right up there with peruse and despise.
7:57 pm
EasternBlue

Babs - you're as bad as I am now!!
7:58 pm
mab

Babs, Eastern, you are so inspiring to me. I'm going to have to play with Paint -- perhaps I too can be a Windows artiste!

I liked very much your icons today, and I like what Babs has just done. You're right Eastern, it is a bit Mondrian.
7:59 pm
hokie carla

Thanks, Eastern Blue. I didn't know such a thing existed.

I had to step away from the Babble for a while.
8:01 pm
Babbler

EB........ this new addiction with Paint is sooooo gonna rival my addiction to Babble!! LOL!! (just chopping up pic no.2 some more........ tee hee! ) :D
8:01 pm
renfield

so 'k babbler - you're looking really marvelous in green
8:02 pm
Babbler

yayyyyyyyy Mab!!! Paint is FAB!! :D
8:02 pm
Babbler

i'm back to my robin now, ren. *rfresh* to see it.... kinda reminds me of my diddy babba blob niece, who's 7 months and fat and gorgeous! :D
8:03 pm
mab

Renny: who is the photographer in your family? I'm really keen on birds. I find raptors fascinating. Your icon is fabulous.
8:04 pm
brandyjack

I finally figured out what that icon is luvmypom. I just couldn't see the little guy. All I could see was a closeup of what looked like a cows head.........

As for Cobol. I almost went and bought glasses after looking at that stuff a few times........
8:09 pm
cowboy

can i ask anyone if there is a qu word and a clue if that is possible. thank you
8:09 pm
renfield

my husband - mezzie

luvmypom

brandyjack, I won't tell my little 4 lb Sophie you thought she looked like a cow's head. lol
8:20 pm
mab

Thar's a face in that there fur! Excuse me for interrupting. Your Sophie is adorable. My Sophie is a black cat who weighs upwards of 12 lbs.!
8:22 pm
renfield

brandy - is your sphie a maine coon? my maine coon is 15 lbs
8:22 pm
luvmypom

mab -- that's too funny. I have a black persian "Napoleon" -- he's 12-13 lbs too. No small man's complex there!

Oh, and in Sophie's defense, the pict was a little distorted on the upload. :)
8:23 pm
renfield

sorry - i meant Sophie - time to put on my glasses
8:25 pm
mab

Ren: my sophie is a shorthaired domestic whatever black cat. luvmy's cat is a pekinese dog!
8:26 pm
brandyjack

her eyes are almost invisible so her black nose in the white muzzle looks like an eyeball and the little mouth below looks like a shadow. Maybe I'm just seeing things after that Charolais bull that was in here yesterday....
8:28 pm
luvmypom

I'll have to take her for new "head shots". Don't want any confusion for an alien beast of some sort. :-D
8:31 pm
renfield

i love charolais - and puppies and kitties - i have also have an oriental short hair (all black) that runs the house
8:32 pm
renfield

ok - time for a grammar lesson - to many haves
8:32 pm
mab

brandyjack, if it's any comfort, the phenomenon of not seeing icons for what they are happens often to me. It took me weeks to really see Lola's icon (not sure who it was) of the blond woman.
8:39 pm
brandyjack

you and me both........ that was one wierd icon....
8:46 pm
Babbler

just popped back to say goodnight............. gotta stop messing about in Paint and go to bed! :D

see you tomorrow! xxx

Good night, dear Babbler.

My thrill for the day was the return of the birds to my feeder which, some of you know, I was reticent to put back out as the bears ate the last one, and I didn't know if they were safely asleep yet. Time will tell, but after waiting for 3 days, this morning I awoke to the wonderful sight of the chickadees diving at the feeder. They are such wonderfully audacious little critters and always the first to come.

We are just getting into it here - and last winter had a month or so with temps in the -20's at night and rarely above 0 during the day. I have developed an unhealthy love affair with our woodstoves, and the cat has deserted my bed to lie in front of the one in the livingroom. he's no fool - warmth comes before love.

harpjane

GW-yes, I play the harp, if that's what you mean. The "harpjane" was a nickname given to me by a three -year-old. He knew two people named Jane. So he called me "harpjane" so he could keep track of who was who.
That was about 20 years ago but the name stuck!

EasternBlue I wish they hadn't included that wampum as it seems it's actually the first part of the compound word. Does the puzzle rules allow prefixes?
