We’re off to a late start with our annual winter challenge. We paralyzed ourselves by deciding to do something intellectually stimulating, like learn a language, as our challenge.
But by the time we finished our farming and nursery seasons we were tired and the thought of doing something challenging was so daunting that we did nothing.
Finally tonight we admitted we weren’t ever going to get around to doing something that made us think, so we started the Great Boggle Challenge of 2015.
As in years previous, we’ll tally our scores each night, and declare a winner on March 20th, the first day of spring.
|Date||Debbie’s Score||Chuck’s Score||Notes|
|1/19/2015||30||26||Debbie continues where she left off when we last played Boogle in 2013, offering up dubious words like “rex” and “grote”.|
|1/20/2015||22||10||I don’t like this game.|
|1/21/2015||33||42||A stunning comeback|
|1/22/2015||19||22||Of course ‘hoy’ is a word!|
|2/21/2015||28||13||After a long layoff to recover from the Cincinnati Death Virus Lana brought home from the National No-Till Conference I suffer an humiliating defeat.|
|2/27/2015||49||46||A high scoring match.|
|2/28/2015||30||32||The tide turns on the last day of February.|
|3/01/2015||31||25||I don’t care what anyone says, “nads” is too a word./td>|
|3/04/2015||33||21||Putting new batteries in the Boggle gadget didn’t help./td>|
Alas, the Great Boggle Challenge of 2015 ended with a whimper (on my part), not a bang. Debbie won a crushing victory in our abbreviated challenge. 2016 will be my year, I’m sure.
