@sweda,
Hi Sweda, checked on my word cruncher that came up with DOUBLURE, and then checked on answers site and found that it is correct, so that is your word you need.ttfn

Thanks to you both,

I always have trouble with the Demon and Stinker and as I don't have a Computer, I have to rely on trips to the local Library and hopefully get a Computer there.

Thanks again,

Sweda

@sweda,
Hi Sweda, and everyone else who needs a really concise dictionary,

Am happy to give you this tip which might save you some trips to the library. If you have a friend who has a computer you should buy from Amazon.com in the US "The New Comprehensive A-Z Crossword Dictionary" by Edy Garcia Schaffer. It is a soft cover, measures 7" x 4" x 2+1/2" thick. It cost me $2.00 + $10.00 postage approximately and is an absolute boon! I've never had anything like it. For "decorative twisted cord" I just looked up "cord" and it gives 7 variations plus another 13 with headings like braided, cattle-catching and drapery which was torsade. With "velcrum book cover lining" I looked up "book" and it just goes forever! From nearly the top of one page to nearly the bottom of the next! 14 at first then just way too many to count for everything to do with books, e.g. "about saints", "blank sheet of" and "lining" which was "doublure". This dictionary is worth its weight in gold! They had heaps when I bought this one. It was used but you'd never know it. Good luck.

@boofy,
Thanks for the information re the Dictionary. I have lots of Dictionaries, including Collins Million words & the Edwin Faint one (think this is very good - $70.00 here).

Have never heard of the one you mentioned so will ask a friend to try and obtain one for me.

Thanks Again,

Sweda

Hi Boofy,

Re your suggestion for the Dictionary - I've asked a friend to order one from Amazon for me.

Order has gone through and am waiting for the Dictionary - will let you know when I get it.

Thanks

Boofy,

I have obtained the Dictionary through a friend who purchased it on Amazon.
Got a new copy and with postage it was $20.00 A.

Thanks again for the information.
