We ought to be able to go on from there.

But not the only one!
ORANGEST (W --> A)
ESTROGEN (W --> E)
STURGEON (W --> U)
STRONGER (W --> R)
SONGSTER (W --> S)
And those are just replacing the W. There must be tons more, but I got tired... So, no stalemate, Fauve! :0)

add an F


FLOWERING

Sorry for the many posts: Just learning how to edit. Hope this
works. If not, I'll try better: Hope no one is offended. And
I am not interested in running up a posting score: I gave up
competition when I retired. It's too tiring.

drop the W and it's FOREIGN

It is the thread that never ends -
it just goes on and on, my friends.
Somebody started posting here not knowing what it was,
and we'll continue posting here forever just because
it is the thread that never ends . . .

...the thread that never ends -

You started here, not knowing what it was,
and we'll be posting here
forever and a year;
it is the thread, the thread that never ends . . .



FOREIGN

Or, you could just drop the F and

IGNORE the whole thing...
