Holy Caracas, Mende lol.... not 15 minutes they've been up, and you clean house !

You're somethin, man. I keep trying to make them hard to challenge you guys, but I can't resort to ubiquitous words such as love, the, his, her etc...!

lol.........phew !

OK 'tseeer:

1st: Q314 Deep .... = Endless wire ? - yes sir Mr Mende ! You get it !

2nd: Q311 Oh .... = Oh Linda ? yuppers - totaly valid ambig..,, I clean forgot about Oh, Linda..lol... the intended was Don Quixote ! a rare Oh !
You get it Mende

3rd: Q313 Much .... = Much to my surprise ? - it sure does ! You get it !

4th: Q306 .... passing = Did she mention my name ? it does ! uh-oh.....lol

WOW Mende, did I make 'em to easy, or do you listen to Lightfoot as much as I do ? I all ready know the answer .

Congrats., man !

OK HERE IS AN UPDATE AS OF 7:40 pm, Fri..,JAN 30, 2009

Round one: the Jovester, the Mendemeister cleans house with a 4-Peat ! The crowd is going wild ! Yes !

Well Mende, in the short time I worked on the response to the only reply up yet to the new board, looks like the whole cavalry came out ! I think maybe I will be making a new list of ten rather shortly, yes ? lol...

================================================== ========

Q306 .... passing - X joveski gets it with 'Did She Mention My Name ?'

Q307 .... jar .... - REMAINS UNANSWERED

Q308 .... France .... - REMAINS UNANSWERED

Q309 .... claw - REMAINS UNANSWERED

Q310 .... mother's first.... - REMAINS UNANSWERED

Q311 Oh .... - X joveski gets it with 'Oh,Linda'

Q312 .... silver - REMAINS UNANSWERED

Q313 Much .... - X joveski gets it with 'Much to My Surprise'

Q314 Deep .... - X joveski gets it with 'Endless Wire'


Q315 .... key.... - REMAINS UNANSWERED



================================================== ========
All songs written by Gordon Lightfoot.

4 Down and 6 to go !

I know there are countless replies waiting out there rendering this board
passe, but when I started it, it was only Mende's ! I admit getting lost in thought listening to 'Softly' - 'her frangrance all in my keeping" - how does a man come up with such captivating phraseology in lyrics that make us drift...and think of the one we love... or loved.... amazing. I'll answer all the rest uno momento ok ? Gotta bring my dinner down from the microwave !

Enjoy !

Jenney ..lol.... I had to look up the wikipedia definition of juggernaut.... per the original British origin of combat against unstoppable, crushing forces....

Mende's first 4 there were definately unstoppable, but not crushing ..lol !

You nailed 4 back to bacl the other day ! Probably I just explained why the Ronster made the quip !

OK OK guys I am working on the rest of the replies ...lol I still can't get the GG1 version of 'Softly' out of my head....what does it signify to me now ? It's closing on a year now.....is my brain...and heart....trying to tell me something?

Morning Glory - you nailed the intended song Ronster

I'll post it after I finish replying to the rest of the jugular knots - sounds painful... - lol I have tourniquet'ed the femoral artorey in my leg before on a rather hard trip out of the mountains, and it was painful - 5 miles away painful lol... but the jugular ? seems to me a person'd lose their head...lol

Good to have you playing Ron
