Default [Dixonary] Round 3023 - Adelatser *** The Results ***

This was so much fun watching a bunch of clever definitions roll in and
then seeing the votes go all over the place. At first, I thought Mike
Shefler, with his mounted spearmen (#8), was going to run away with it
but, then others started to catch up.

Our next Dealer is Judy Madnick with a Natural 4. The two Tims (Bourne and
lodge) hit the sweet spot with threes.

Thanks for having me back, folks. I will try to stay in it with more
