Pray, what is your assessment of the cordage of timber projected by a rodent of the genus Sciuridae, should said rodent be in a position to jettison timber in such a way?

Fatally beautiful.

An extremely satisfying combination of vegetables, herbs, shredded meat, & a dressing.

After inserting the starting handle into a receptive recess, you have to begin to revolve the starting handle in a jerking  motion. You might have to do this more than few times until the engine is "switched on". (Hopefully you have remembered to place the vehicle into neutral &/or put the brakes on). Removing the aforementioned tool and replacing it in the place you previously removed it from. Then entering the horseless carriage you then have to slowly remove the pressure of the stopping pedal and/or pushing the lever from a neutral stance into a forward motion position. All you have too do now is pick a destination you wish to arrive at in a safe & comfortable state.

Orienting oneself in a non-sinister direction, proceed heavenwards past two stellar bodies.  Subsequently, continue in the same direction until your chronometer indicates the hour is between midnight and midday.

The young domesticated specimen of Ovis aries under the care of Mary was possessed of a hairy covering of a paleness resembling the crystalline flakes of water precipitated from a wintry sky.

Could it be, mayhap, that there are those amongst the fraternity of splendid Brass Goggle participants who appreciate the gravitas of the current enterprise?

To "Dalzell" do I answer.  A Caledonian dark-visaged ovis aries be I, & I wear a pleated, wraparound plaid skirt.

Call it a pen name, stage name, or alias, I do admit to answering to more than one name.
