blarps: combs? brushes? soap? ties? swings? No to all but keep trying!

clarp: yesish for noun and verb... is the ish for the noun? The ish is because in the noun form it is actually a proper noun. is she blarping her hair in something tangible? This or is it an emotion, like 'delight'?

@Jumpingjack

Is the city in:
US? UK? France? Spain? Germany? etc (LTPF list of countries) Somehow I feel it will be more fun if I don't give this away so easily!
(I suppose we can't ask for the LTPF list of cities, lol =P ) Indeed :-D


@Woodworm Nice to see you back here! BTW What have you done with the worm puzzle you were running? (Can't see the wood for the trees, etc.)? Was really enjoying that one!

Hmmm ... any cricketing connection? Nope

She was doing something to her hair in York, while he missed being yorked by a hair? Nice try, but no.

If only one could Onion one's hair ... Haha! :-)

Is there a fast bowler called Combs? Not that I know of! :-)
