Default [Dixonary] Round 2229 KOMMANIC results

Well, there's no disputing the significance of Paul Keating's 6 natural
points.
And our relieved runner-up is Mike Shefler, with 6 unnatural points.
Two of you spotted the crested lark amongst the camouflage ... from
"Noachian" Webster's 1828 dictionary.

Congratulations, and over to you Paul

Best wishes,
Millie
PS ... I must say I'm really enjoying this vicarious trip down the Dixonary
memory lane, thanks to Steve Dixon's reappearance
And I'm anticipating a lot more reminiscing to come (please)
