Time for me to go to bed, but I'll leave you with this one :twisted:

<<Avatar and Alias>>


I am famous, a legend
Trapped between a cold canine and art
fear for the wild king devours my heart ....

I dwell in a place
to where forumites race
bitter-sweet memories
if they put together my name
and my face .......

Good Luck!!! :tongue:

'K I'd like this solved so both you and I can sleep in peace. Last night I was tossing and turnin with a Taradiddle :roll: The important clues are highlighted in blue

i]Guess what? Guess what ? guess what I "seed"?
I saw an off-colour, slovenly mare from Dixie![/i]

Any more clues and I'd just be leading you astray
It's right above your nose, there's no need to pray

So don't be a Rusty Justy
And you'll see just fine
But if all else fails
Blame the composer of this line


And
slovenly = lazy
Dixie - phonectic/sound clue
Could be Dotty's twin

Yiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiippppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

@ Jackalbessbie - You got it in one! :clap: :dance: :clap:

Okay lets get the clues sorted
Guess what? Guess what ? guess what I "seed"?
I saw an off-colour, slovenly mare from Dixie!

Guess what I see = Spot. Guess what I see'd = Spotted (part of alias)
Off-colour = purple, Slovenly mare = lazy horse = africaans for leopard
Dixie sounds like "Dick's Sea" = Richards Bay where SC is from (its on her avvie)
[i]Any more clues and I'd just be leading you astray
(a stray cat)
It's right above your nose[/i] (Spotted Cat has posted above. I also said to SC " This small clue should be sufficient for YOU" (her))
there's no need to pray

So don't be a Rusty Justy
And you'll see just fine

Like SC Rusty Justy could not get his own avvie/alias riddle and guessed someone else
But if all else fails
Blame the composer of this line


Composer = author, this line = thread = author of this thread

None other then

drrrruuuuuummmmmmmmmmm rrrrrroooooooollllllll
SPOTTED CAT

Oh Yes one more
