bison, bone, bosh, bowsie, ebon, eosin, hone, hose, howe, noise, nose, nosh, nowise, shoe, show, snob, snow, sone, whose, wino

wishbone is the word using all the letters.

I got "bosh", Susan, becuase they allowed it on a previous occasion. And I also got "nosh" on the principle that if they allowed bosh they’d allow nosh. But I missed "wino" (and nowise, sone, ebon, bowsie, ebon and eosin — that last I should have got as it is a chemical).

Re. kist (yesterday), I thought it meant a poetic past tense of "kissed" but that is me winging it so don’t take my word for it!

  1. I got twelve today, Maxine, but it wasn’t much of a performance. I missed wishbone as well as bosh, bowsie, ebon, eosin, howe, nosh, nowise, and wino.
