FOWC with Fandango — Handle

Just a few ideas:
Watch that handle on the cupboard, it’s loose.
I’ve got a handle on it!
My CB handle is………………

I can handle this!
Handle with care.
Too hot to handle.

I used to play a game with the kids which helped to improve their word power.
The idea was that they chose a nine letter word from the paper or a book then had five minutes (kitchen timer) to get as many words of three letters or more using those letters.
Only rule was no proper nouns or names, though we would allow plurals.

There was a points system of

one point per word,
two points if they had one that somebody else didn’t,
and
three points if they had a word that us adults didn’t have.
There were prizes too………… I had a large jar of lollipops and the winner got to pick.

What has this got to do with Fandango’s challenge you might ask.
After all, HANDLE is only 6 letters though you can make several words out of it
(had, head, heal, ale, and, den, lend, lea, hen, lah, and of course hand from which handle originates).
Basically it was a way of handling their boredom.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    And a way of keeping the kids occupied for five minutes so you could sit and relax for a bit.
