Quandary Resolution 3965
purl, mither, fructify, desolate

“Don’t be mithering me, child”, said Grandma Chavez (actually spoken in pocho), as she rocked on the front porch of her tiny wood frame home, carefully knitting and purling a pattern being created in her mind, as she considered how she would stand fast against urban encroachment and the bulldozers that the developers were sending in the morning to desolate her beloved woodsy ravine, clearing the land to build a new baseball stadium which had been proposed to fructify their small part of the great city of Los Angeles by bringing thousands of tourists and fans to the area.
