Quandary Resolution 3102
marrow, halation, toplofty, jointure


'Frozen to the bloody marrow, that I was!' said Charlie, handing me a creased, faded photo of himself, his grizzled visage obscured by a halation of breath in the arctic air, 'and if old toplofty hadn't come a cropper showing us all for the umpteenth time that a grand jeté was the only way to leap a crevasse, the missus might just be enjoying her jointure right now, seeing as how it was my turn next'.
