Outlandish Swap V: The Fiery Cross

Scottish clans were originally a Highland way of life. The Highland clan was, above all things, a family; a family in which everybody believed they were all, from chief to blacksmith, descended from one founder or progenitor. They regarded themselves as very close kinsmen. This Swap is dedicated to such clan families and will be organized into four clans.

The scores:

MacKenzie: 61 +1 (Sneaker) +5 Kinley's winning name = 67

Murray: 91 + 1 (Early Bird) = 92

Awards and Special Notice:

Early Bird goes to Ceitidh of Clan Murray

Sneaker award goes to: Leigh of Clan Mackenzie. Her email was received at 11:52 p.m. on the deadline.

Leslie in the Springs more formally known as Lady North Facing -- most wrong answers that ended up being marked right...clever lass! Marsali Murray -- who appreciates a good pair of plump, white partridges! ;)

Respectfully submitted,

Fiona Fraser
