Not to worry. It's not the quantity but the quality. I wish I knew more about boats but that they are supposed to float. Handicapped by not knowing wat gazebo means that choice is out too. I do know about summons and poetry and the others are clear as well. So I must choose from the last 4. I like the lefty weofhit, C.. or F...,.. but I like birds better.

oh dear; I really really hope it's not F), as that reminds me of the time I found the word furrahin (the right-hand hindmost horse that walks in the furrow in plowing) and all the time I spent searching for the word for the *left-hand horse.
