David the Wordsmith

We wandered in on the Morley Scrabble Club at the Town Hall today and were persuaded to enter a competition. The person with the highest score after five rounds won a scrabble related prize and the opponent did as much as possible tactically to help us. I scored 86 and David 66, David playing Junior Scrabble. (Neither of us are players, although David does have a set at home somewhere).

Anyway, we got a phone call advising us that David had won the junior prize, mainly because he was the only child to enter! We now have a Junior Scrabble Dictionary waiting for us at the Town Hall. At least he didn't come second, like this unfortunate cake baker.

Well done again, David! Poor cake lady - my cakes always have cooling tray indentations and I think that adds to their charm!
