Good Evening AB Linkers, everywhere!

Oh dear, the unthinkable has happened, Crofter has abandoned his post and gone AWOL - right in the middle of his own month! Furthermore (prepare to feel jealous), I understand he will be soaking up the sun for a WHOLE week in Tenerife! Consequently the cavalry has been called in and I will do my best to supervise the MM game this weekend (+ opening the 'shrubbery' again next weekend). However, the game is still Crofter's - he has provided me with the files and all I have to do is post them at the appropriate times (providing my ISP is co-operative).

Assuming I don't sleep in, I shall be posting Crofter's opening remarks in Q & P at 8.45am tomorrow and the four words to be linked should be declared at 9.00am, when the MM Links game kicks off in earnest. Remember, play early if possible because first hits can gain bonus points!

The last few days have been hectic for me. My colour laser printer malfunctioned on Wednesday and (with the help of a 260 page service manual downloaded from the internet) I have had it in bits over the attic floor. The problem was with escaped toner getting where it shouldn't. Dyson proved too powerful and swallowed two screws in the process. It is now 2/3 back together but which screw goes where? Will it work ever again? Who Knows? Will let you know.

Remember, this is also the third round in the international version of this same game which is called KM Links and kicks off at 7:00 am (or very soon thereafter). In that game, the timing of your posting is deemed to be irrelevant ~ only the number of hits you are able to register. The regular organiser of KM Links comes all the way from Oz and goes by the name of “seekeerz”. As I always say ~ “Why not chance your arm at both Link Games?” They both remain open for most of the weekend and all entries are scored and entered on to master scoreboards.

Until I see you tomorrow ~ “Happy Linking”!

Now I have got centre-stage, I shall take a leaf out of Pauline's book and not pass up the opportunity to mention my cryptic Charity Quiz. You've got to be in it to win it. ART - TRA. Closing date Jan 31st.

Full details will be found here:

A big thank you to everyone who has already sent for one of these quizzes.

Oh, I almost forgot - "The Shrubbery is now OPEN". Lurkers will be outed - so let's hear from you.

thanks for stepping into the breach gen2,

Sarumite is bringing his whisky begining with A as he starts his battle to go through th ealphabet

Well done in picking up the pieces, Gen2, from our absent friend if not from your malfunctioning printer!

Lucky Crofter! I take it you won't be guessing then gen2!!
Now if I lived nearer I could put that back together for problem.

She's on the red wine Strix!!
blame the key board
think the wrong keys rise up to be pressed
should be some body
wish i could spell!!
and yes am on the second glass (not bottle)
BUT, Jan, how big is the glass ??
only normal size, keep joking about those that take a full bottle!!!!
Yes it's probably one of those full bottle sized glasses.
Question Author
I suspect this is the glass in question:

Sarumite, with his new mission, will no doubt be asking Jan to join him on his expedition through stern Caledonia after she has finished her wine:
Evening all (to coin a phrase). Think I need to join you in a bottle of wine; my son will be 40 on Monday (he's the younger of our two) and I feel OLD!
Well, tearinghair, if you will be one of those "teenage parents" what do you expect ? !!
I wish! Loving your quiz, by the way, Gen2.

Hello everyone, just popped on for a minute as I am sorting things out in my house pre moving. Son is taking my sideboard tomorrow so am trying to empty it !!!!
Then, Pauline, those trainee Registrars at the Last Hope Saloon better watch out for being groped as they do their rounds.

Hope you got my message Kay...
