Andrew Baines could definitely expect Fiona’s Granny Harris in July, “Kinda like my nonna or perhaps Queenie’s.”

Rather silly?” Teresa uttered.

Very weirdly xenophobic!” Yvonne zinged.

    Ross, this is wonderful! I actually thought about doing this, but I am still brain-dead from moving from Tucson to the Georgia coast, so I picked something easy to write about.

      Thanks for the comment.

      At first I thought about being a little cheeky and simply writing one of those sentences typists use to test each keystroke, e.g. “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.” This might be cheating. I thought using only 26 words in alphabetical order more of a challenge. 🙂

      Having up to 126 words wouldn’t have been too testing a task so I decided to add the edge of using only 26 words and keeping them to alphabetical order. 🙂

      Thanks for the comment.

      It seemed to be an easy challenge if we had a 126 word limit so I thought I’d add the extra challenge of only 26 words where the first letter of each word would provide all 26 letters in alphabetical order.

    Not only all the letters, but in 26 words and alphabetically … phew, talk about stepping it up.

      Thanks for the comment.

      The challenge had me wondering if I could achieve an alphabetical entry in just 26 words. 🙂

    good one, Ross! You and I had a similar idea…although the end result isn’t anything alike!

      Thanks for the comment.

      I’m not surprised others would see the added challenge but I would have been surprised if the results were alike. 🙂

      Thanks for the comment.

      Limiting the task to 26 six words ordered alphabetically added a little extra to the challenge. 🙂
