Whoaa CC! To quick for me. :thumbs_up:

Just like dinner eh....takes hours to make up and minutes to finish.


Just one bit not solved

I cashed in my cheques
An threw in the towel


Dotty's previous avvie was a checked teatowel/napkin/tablecloth thingy (at least that what it looked like to me) :redface:

And I learnt that pachyderm actually means thick skin

Go on CC give it a try
Tutorial
1) first put down some points about the avvie, person, alias
2) then write the first line and the second :D
3) Now all you really have to do is rhyme 4 with 2 and 8 with 6.......just two sets

And be as devious as possible - Might have to get RP to do a tutorial on that one :lol:

Way to go CC , you've "nailed" the "dot" :clap:


Rusky, wow!! Talk about devious :twisted: .... maybe RP can get a lesson or two


A reminder to the "confuser" posting his/her riddle ...
Don't forget to post avvies when you confirm the answers - it'll help us to "see" the bigger picture :wink:

Don'y have a pic of Dotty's previous avvie.

@Dotty - maybe you can add it to the thread.
PS - I selected you Dotty so you would get into making up some and helping solve some :D

I know you can't leave me
Just out of the blue
From out of the darkness
Sparkle diamonds, just for you

.... and forever, a slow dance for two...

The crown that I'm wearing
throughout ages my pride
despite dire warning
will eventually slide

.... until then, I'll always slow dance with you ...

I know you can't leave me
Just out of the blue
From out of the darkness
Sparkle diamonds, just for you

Changing skies - day and night

... and forever, a slow dance for two...

Earth, slowly turning

The crown that I'm wearing
throughout ages my pride

The crown (North Pole Ice- Cap)

despite dire warning
will eventually slide

Global warming causing the Ice Cap to melt

.... until then, I'll always slow dance with you ...

despite all this, the earth keeps on turning


Who's next?? Thinking caps on ....

Twinkle Twinkle little star,

Keep on looking all around
tel us of animals abound
Watch all the stars late at night,

Spotted once in the city,
