Double-checking that the child born on a Thursday did have far to go a reference to Eartha Kitt came up and I was taken back several decades to a memory of being mesmerised by the quality of her voice, and thinking her perfectly named.
This week’s entries were pretty mesmerising too: week after week I am in awe of the talent in this group. I am also aware I don’t often acknowledge the comments made on my posts, but hope you know that is not lack of pleasure. This week’s winner, I’m delighted to say, is Zaiure for ‘Boda’. Several of you were neck and neck but it was ‘rummages in the stolen tithe bag’ which tipped the balance when the time came to make my mind up.
Words for next week: fuse migrate song
