    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> A Church. Why? Because there appears to be six clues and Church has six letters, and if it's not Glade, then there is a one in four chance I'm right and I'm prepared to risk those odds for a [choccy bar].</span hide>

    <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15> No [choccy bars] today. If I say no now the answer will be selected by a process of elimination.

    The answer is mathematical:

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> A=1, B=2, C=3.......Z=26

    If you add the letter values in each word, it appears Jezza Bear could only see words that the total value was even...therefore he would only see Mrs J as the total =60</span hide>

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">All of the above

    You were walking to Church with Jazzarette and saw a rabbit, owl, and a skylark walking thru the glade. When you finally got to church you saw that Mrs. J had roller pin made of wood to <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39> and <img src=/S/smash.gif border=0 alt=smash width=30 height=26> with cause you were late getting to church. You tried explaining that you were only late because you had seen an Alien ridding a Tricycle up to you and demanded that you take him to your leader.</span hide>

    Hi Winston

    Firstly, can I apologise for Mrs J jumping into this thread <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17>She is like that at home

    Secondly, as your answer contained Mrs J and a very active imagination, you can have a [choccy drop]

    And you are hardly likely to mention that Mrs J is odd, now are you?

    Wooops...
