I'm sure a pint or two shared will make you both feel better.

Yes...well done Peter...with both works.

You are a posting device in Rhubarb's guise
He left his posts in a portmanteau
You post them to show that he is you
You machines have no respect when someone dies.

To offer jenny
But a Penny

Wisdom's pearl
From this bright girl
T'were far too cheaply bought.

Clearly, RC, you first wrote "dearly" then changed it to "cheaply" because you are cursed with a redemptive heart. laugh

But you forgot to give us two dictionary words so I will...

My little panegyrifc to you jj - which was certainly not changed from my first thoughts (apart from editing typos!) - was not part of the game, so we are still working onn Peter's words:-
PORTMANTEAU - POST

I shall bend my mind to it in a while, if someone else doesn't pip me to the post by using a Humpty-Dumpty style portmanteau word!

Like this:-
Tromboniator is our host
So I’ll make an attempt at a post
And see if I can show
A wordy ‘Portmanteau’
Which ain’t just a feeble falboast*


*Falboast: n. an unsustainable claim to prowess (Eng. portmanteau wd, fr ‘false,’ ‘boast’)
