Quandary Resolution 5902
precipitous, avocation, roustabout, clepe
Rosie and Teri had a lovely Sunday morning, they went to Stirling and saw the towering Castle rising high above the precipitous rock and thence to the antiques market near Doune, where Rosie's avocation saved the roustabout Teri from yet another expensive mistake for she is not an expert and Rosie noticed that she had spotted a woman in a kind of mini-Dresden-Shepherdess dress with Cork- soled shoes and a delicate chain round her bare ankle and followed her around and would have bought everything the other touched but Rosie successfully intervened and they went back to the cottage via Aberfoyle and saw the Baillie Nicol Jarvie Inn - now exclusive apartments - and to Rosie's cottage for cocoa fortified with Scotland's National Drink!
