Thank you everyone who has guessed so far!!!
No question a computer monitor really makes a difference in looking at online photos.

EVERY guess has been within reason- and shows just how well educated our regular CDi readers are!

After all, coconuts are King, are they not?  :boobban:

Hey djm - I think I've found a happy home for your nuts.  You want a strange moment, annie - check this out!  The end really gets pretty interesting.

LMAO!!!!  That's it! I can throw my erm..the coconut bra into the ocean and give an octopus a home. Brilliant idea! Thanks so much.

You know, I kept to my word about being good to you this week, DJM. DH showed me that ocotopus on TV the other day. Notice, I didn't even mention it here.  :angel:

Black, Grey, White, Red, Pink, Orange, Yellow, Brown, Green, Blue, Violet, Purple

No more than three hues. Hues to be mentioned in increasing order (pink-brown means more brown; brown-pink means more pink). Use of -ish, slightly, very slightly to denote decreasing intensity of a hue.

Thanks OMC! :Thanx:

Now that I know how to do this, I'll try again, correctly.

Table = 54%
Color = Fancy brownish bluish yellow
Fluorescence = Strong green

I am eagerly awaiting the answer!  Of course I cannot win; technically I broke the rule and guessed three times.  :tard:

Yay! She's smart, that one! ;D

Congrats GIAGirl - may I touch you?! I never win anything (except the village drinking contest, and as I've mentioned before that's nothing to be proud of).

What was the table size?

DJM, we are playing for a loop!  I am hardcore.  



HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Figured you would win. You were like George in the Seinfield episode when he was pushing old ladies with walkers out of the way to avoid a fire!!!! LOL!

Mags, looks like you no longer have the "Luck of a Snail". Go buy yourself a lottery ticket...your luck is changing!

Merry Christmas,
