the key

The Key is
to speak Poems
which entertain guests

. . . . . . . .

Well, no one ever said the OED boys haven't done their research. Today's word of the day is 'netop,' which meant 'friend'... if you happened to be speaking pidgin Algonquin in the 17th century

Small wonder the OED runs to 20 volumes.

Thanks, Sadami! I had hoped for a more interesting starting point for the poem from OED, but I did the best I could!

LOL Peggy!! The magic of painting on YUPO. If you haven't tried it, I'll bring some Monday!

I think I have some but don't have a clue how to use it. I'd love a few tips.
