usually (and quite rightly) help all

The OED word of the day for the erasure poem | commentary is 'orc,' a sort of ogre resurrected from Old English by Tolkien.

Peggy had the good idea to sketch in the Fremont library, the perfect location on a cold rainy January day: big tables AND stamps (unfortunately, I stamped the tiny Piglet upside down in the foreground!) AND stickers (Peggy used a cool thought balloon one).
