So happy to see this win a top placement, Tom. I mentioned the dinosaurs earlier but neglected to say that I'm also a lover of the night sky and hiking trails, so this won a triple crown for me! Hearty congratulations on your win ~ John

Thank you Jo, doing one isn't too bad it's when you have to do two others either side but I Landed lucky. Tom

I'm glad you had the definition of 'rugops' - I thought it was something out of Dr Seuss! But I do like the 'trekking' one the best-

Thank you Michelle, I came across that one by accident and luckily further down was another with the syllable count I was after. Thistles I can cope with its the deadly nightshade ones that you really have to avoid. Tom

This is a delight to read and I learned something new about dinosaurs, too! Excellent use of alliteration throughout all three. I'll look for this entry in the winners' circle, Tom. Hugs, Carolyn
