Brenda Bryan! Brenda found 19 "official" words in March--amazing!
Fourteen people entered; three came in at 17 words each: Kate, Angela, and Brighid.
Two people had 18 words each: Carol and my granddaughter Haley--who is disqualified because she copied from a list I had written! Sneaky kid. But smart. Who knew she was reading my blog?
Carol not only had 18 words, she offered definitions for several of the more obscure terms. like marc--did you know that is the word used for "the refuse of grapes, seeds etc after pressing?" I didn't. Or that char is a "trout with small scales?" (I thought it meant what I do to dinner sometimes.) Or that cham was a Tartar ruler? Carol also included M as the Roman numeral for 1,000--I didn't count this as a word since it's technically a symbol, and Rh as the symbol for Rhodium in chemistry. And ch is an abbreviation for "chancery," which means "Of or describing a court of equity as opposed to a court of common law." O.Kay. Carol, your extra work earned you a CD as well, so email me your mailing address. Anyone who goes to that much trouble deserves a reward, don't you agree?
Thanks to all of you who played: Brenda, Katina, Carol, Kate, Theresa, Nance, Brighid, Angela, Angel, Cheryl, Jackie, Tipper, Daneille, and yes, even you, Haley! Now, did I miss anyone? If I missed your name, please let me know in the comments--I think I got everyone, but I think many things that turn out to be not so.
The visitor count is rapidly approaching 150,000, so stay tuned for another giveaway when we reach that magic number.
