Default [Dixonary] Rnd 3074 The Results

All I can say about this round, is mea culpa. I have a whole rash of lessons learned that I hope will be of benefit. Three messages with defs ended up unchecked in my Junk folder and the fourth error was a mix up of the two Tims. If it weren't a tad early, I'd go downstairs and have tot of Jameson's and do penance. In retrospect, I probably should have scrapped the round and started over. I think I (or someone) may actually have done that once. Anyway, the new dealer is Efrem with his Scottish def. I'm sure his deal will go more smoothly.
