080214 The pucksters are coming!

But early spring-weather meant blue skies, sunshine and a champagne picnic by the lake, so sadly, not a puckster in sight. Therefore to bag today’s word of the day, I had to resort to the Winter Olympics supplement from the newspaper, where pucksters abound. I do hope we’re not in for another two weeks of Winter Olympics speak – that could test the imagination and my lateral thinking skills to their limits!

Day #39 of a 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
