MLMM Wordle #226

A couple of days late, but welcome to the Monday Wordle courtesy of MLMM. You can join in here

Our words this week are

Paragon- means someone or something that is the very best. The English noun paragon comes from the Italian word paragone, which is a touchstone, a black stone that is used to tell the quality of gold. You rub the gold on the touchstone and you can find out how good the gold is.


She was a paragon in her field, resolute in being able to make something on a shoestring.
In keeping with the rich and grave guests at her table, most were by invitation only, sometimes at a late hour in order to keep up appearances of privilege and generate stirrings of grandeur.
With her expertise, it was hoped to turn profits inward to the union of two companies rather than create expenditure in favour of duplicated suppliers.
The head CEO upon whose decision it rested proved to be a glutton for her cuisine, insisting on thirds as well as seconds. Had he known the basic ingredient of the fifty pound a head dish was a £2 rabbit which provided six portions, she wasn’t sure if he would appreciate it or blow a fuse for being duped.

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.
