Waiting for Stardust to update .   Basketball    Where is he?  

Forgive me, I've been away from here for a time and not had chance to catch up on the gossip yet. 
Has this thread become redunant?

Incidentally, I am liking the new forum look.  sunny    Very bright and cheery.  clap

Love that parrot squawking about the new posts.  giggle :thumb:

Welcome back, Jamboree. Smile   We missed you.

It's actually Whiskers we're waiting for.  Stardust has guessed right with pregnant, I'm pretty sure of it - but it's Whiskers who has to confirm it.  She's the one that's missing here.  Whiskers ............. where aaaaaare you???

oops, a whole year waiting for me to respond. sorry

Here are the instructions again, because I couldn't remember them myself (doh!). cheesy

Choose a random word:
Give the first and last letters,
plus the total number of letters,
and a one-word or short definition,
so other members can guess the word.
Hmm


So here's a new word:

First and last letter = R
Total number of letters = 9
Clue = Container

I wouldn't check back to see if we had words before - does it matter?

But yes, Kitkat, that's the correct word. Very Happy

Hmm ... knowing bimbow's penchant for the occasional glass of vino, I will hazard a guess at demijohn (a large glass bottle for storing wine) ?

Wigwam, woodworm, wisdom ...

Hmmm, no words come to mind other than those and they aren't the correct number of letters and don't fit the definition.

stirpot  Wait till I've concocted my super memory potion, then I'll have another think. cheesy

I'd never heard of bimbow's "bottle" word and I don't know anything about a darts board game.
I've led a sheltered life.

OK - another clue; this might make it a bit easier:  Another word for it - has 8 letters, beginning with T.
(The darts is just an example; it's used for other things too).
