    I actually wasn’t this perfect! I had started playing early this morning and had two bad lines. When I came back at lunchtime, I barely remembered what I had done. But purple? Never heard of the category or the elements in it! Well, you know what I mean, I know the words but not in this category sense, not at all.

    Wood - Glad you are enjoying the wonderful "Child/Forest" book. My library has the prettiest edition of this, and I donated the other two in the trilogy, but have a strong feeling they went into the FoL book sale instead of on the shelves which I had intended to make up the trilogy for other people. As for the adding of the "-ie" sound to words in English, that is quite common even now. "Brekkies" - breakfast "Sarnies" - sandwiches "Prezzies" - presents/gifts Also, there used to be a penchant for reducing some names to "-az" such as: Sharon --> Shaz or Shazzer Barry --> Baz or Bazzer Des --> Dezzie This might just be my group of friends though... We had a mixed bunch (social class speaking) and I think this shortening was a lower class trend... I could be mistaken as it may vary in other regions...

    Good old crosswords - I love the USA Today puzzles. In my airline days, I came by them readily since hotels routinely give out this newspaper. Now I rarely see them. Of course, they are available on the internet, but I'm not in the habit of obtaining them in that manner. I can do the New York Times crossword until Thursday, when it becomes too difficult. My mother, who has been doing them for fifty years, does the Sunday crossword as easily as I would write out a shopping list. (For those not familiar, the NYT puzzle becomes increasingly difficult as the week progresses; the Sunday puzzle is much larger and notoriously challenging.)

    Wow, nicole, I’ve had coffee and I’m not so clear-headed. Five possibilities for blue, and one of the purples even took me a minute, as the syntax kind of changes for one of them.

    I fiddled with a couple of category ideas with no progress, until I hit on the purple. Sometimes an outlier word is the key to the whole thing.
