Elfie

Somehow somebody might have sniffed to the bottles!!!

juneshone

All a bit too much lotus eatery round here - too much of the tadpole perhaps?

juneshone

going to bed on time and I am three minutes slow.

grannygoatlady

It calls to my mind brown oxfords and white ankle socks.................

Elfie

Well, now - to start with the beginning: what do we understand with the word "sensible"????

juneshone

I like it, GlendaGrannyGoatLady! June from Northern England

grannygoatlady

Oh, PUH_LEEZE.....if we were Sensible People, would we be frequenting a Bizarre Bazaar such as Bonga-Bonga and Bugosiland....I mean, just how many Danish Masai have you seen running about?.....However, Magda_from_Switzerland_with_an_old_pumpkin, if you looking for a fun time with a lot of INTERESTING (though NOT sensible) PEOPLE from all over, you've come to the right place and we welcome you heartily...........

Glenda from Texas

Elfie

Juneee, you are SO right, we are all sensible people here!!! - really!! Lela, wouldn't it be a fantastic thought?

lelabugosi

young-at-heart-Halloween-thingy.........Don't be squared!.......
Hanne-with-pipe.......Well, possibly, maybe, perhaps you are a DANISH MASAI!!.......
juneee-was-shining.........are you sure? (hee-hee)......

juneshone

you'll be fine, lots of sensible people here to look after you, would I tell you wrong?

oldiepumpkin

Yes, I did get a bit scared (or is it squared?) when I saw some of the characters you frequent, but I am courageous, an d will continue, God help me!

Elfie

Funny! She reminds me SO much about my mother's uncle's niece's daughter's sister!! Wonder if they could have been Masais?

juneshone

Mr Squirt thank you for putting the www thingy in a place I could easily copy it in one go, usually I sit stabbing at it a dozen times before I get the beast isolated

lelabugosi

Mr.LeSquirt......sweetlittleoldgranny assures me that the picture shows an old friend of hers - the oldest female albino in the Masai tribe.......

patsquire

Oh, OK, you wanna be like that? Well, I wasn't going to mention this to anybody, but

HERE'S A CURRENT PICTURE OF octomom EVERYBODY:

www.jigidi.com/puzzle.php?id=AF2AJGUV

octomom

I've already written her and advised her not to believe a word he says.

david06520

Hee-hee close Lelabugs - you must have beautiful nurses on the brain...

The She-Shells-Shea-Shells verses reminded me of this Swedish tongue twister I was taught long ago. "Seven Sea-sick Seamen from the Ship Shanghai" is not just a tongue twister but a "shibboleth" - it is pronounced completely differently in different parts of Sweden. In one region the words all start with a kind of "hwhuh" sound instead of the usual "sh".

lelabugosi

"Seven seasick seamen were cared for by seven beautiful nurses"....that's what I got!........

david06520

Sju sjösjukke sjömän från skeppet 'Shanghai'...

lelabugosi

Oh no!!...That'll have frightened her off - she was apprehensive to start with (I didn't dare mention YOU)!!.........

patsquire

OK, I just gave oldiepumpkin the STRAIGHT WORD over on octomom's Green Windmill puzzle.

juneshone

harrumph, we were sure that beef was beef until last week

lelabugosi

Juneee...I believe notdad simply enjoyed finding the shells.....both of them.....
precious-pebble.......I think she went barefoot!.......
She sells sea shells by the sea shore.
The shells she sells are surely seashells.
So if she sells shells on the seashore,
I'm sure she sells seashore shells.................

gemstone

Perhaps 'cause the shoes and socks were too big for her???

juneshone

then why did Notdad just buy some from her instead of searching for 45 years for stuff

lelabugosi

No.6-at-the-racetrack.......Yes, She sells shells on the seashore.......
Hanne-with-pipe........I will ask about the door!.....

grannygoatlady

Why!! She sells seashells...down at the sea shore....and she doesn't have sore, scabby soles.....

Elfie

Who sells shells? I would like to buy the door, need it for my stone collection!!

monza006

So scintillating! Seriously, shall she sell some shells???

lelabugosi

Oh dearie, you do complicate matters!......I shall leave a comment in a bit!..........

I fear my unsmiling tongue in cheek has gotten me once again in hot water. Please feel free to add any comments you'd like to introduce her to your puzzles.

octomom

While not as extensive as Bermuda-Boy's father's collection, this is unique in its own right. Kudos to Penny for keeping this collection in tip-top shape. My shell's off to you!

Elfie

So am I Varda, speechless and breathless!! The most intriguing collection really, but the door!! The door is priceless!! Food? Why?

juneshone

not like it chicken

Plumpossum

I'm speechless.

bookish

With a side order of macaroni salad.

patsquire

Mmmmmmm.......chicken. Seven herbs and spices, from the K the F and the C. And only 4.2 miles from my driveway. I'll be there in a few minutes, Colonel. Yummmmmmm.

thecolonel

Did someone mention chicken?........

bookish

Quite commendable. I see a chef's hat which has me thinking of food! Chicken or perhaps Pillsbury crescent rolls.

lelabugosi

Dobbiel tells me that some of these shells were acquired in exchange for old socks, when his notdad ran out of shoes.........

buckeye425

It certainly appears to be a carefully collected and cared for collection.

lelabugosi

Well, it is certainly a beautiful and impressive presentation....all carefully arranged haphazardly......
Yes, Bubba - the door is a real treasure......I believe it came from Dobbiel's notdad's outhouse......
As for the other shells, Dobbiel refuses to show anything involving firearms........

Dobbiel

The only downside is that notdad has sore and scabby soles from being so short of shoes.....so sad........

Robbiel

Lela, so nice of you to display this outstanding collection on behalf of good friend Dobbie. Interesting to note that the display door is probably worth a small fortune! Shell oil is superb for these specimens and how nice that Penny devotes so much time to their welfare. I am IMPRESSED!!

pdevredis

Dobbiel, your notdad is a credit to his profession of peddling..... er, paddling, and his persuasiveness at procuring plenty of pretty shell specimens should surely make you proud!

patsquire

David, David, poor soul, are you addled from being on Adumber* or confused for some more academic reason? It isn't that kind of shelling, dear heart, it's a completely different kind of shelling. It's the kind of shelling where you . . . . oh, go ahead, what the heck, stick with your original idea.

You may even want to check out the puzzle at www.jigidi.com/puzzle.php?id=10ZFX3UO.


* Part of the island group of Adumb and Adumber.

gemstone

Yes, david-many-numbers...my OH was just asking if there were any shells from WWII...perhaps they are in an adjoining room. I imagine they would be polished with elbow grease...

david06520

Oh, Thanks Lelabugs! I was looking for this world-class Shell Collection on the other side of the world: by mistake I was on the Island of Adumber, but all was in shadows...I should ought to have known that the place to be was Rebmuda, there's no place finer for Shelling, I heard the Commander of Field Artillery say so just the other day.

Dobbiel

Hi mother-of-all-chickens!.........My notdad collected two of the little white ones over a 2-hour period (while paddling in the water's edge)........The rest took 45 years of hard bargaining, with old shoes (in all weathers).......

chickiemama

LOL That is quite a collection Dobbie. Which two did you collect yourself and how many years did it take?
