    Well now Phil, lets see what we have here.....

    C or M and sounds like 'wait' ~ could we have a corm weight by any chance [never heard of them, but that's what I get from the clue]

    Very close Peter, you need a different one hundred to get the answer. Ignore the question marks in this case, they are there to give some sense to the clue phrasing.

    Now that my dear friend is 'sneaky'.....hehehe ~ probably semi-colons instead of 'question marks'?..... LOL
    So it appears that we have l00 and M, plus the sound of wait ~ making them Loom Weights [which I have heard of...hehe]

    And of course pulling the wool over your eyes...

    O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive

    Big grin Re: What is it? #426

    That was a really sneaky and excellent clue. When people complain about my obscure clues I shall remind them that Kip is the master of sneaky and obscure.

    Many thanks Phil ~ and may I take back what I said about your clue being sneaky ~ no way ~ sorry about that because this IS sneaky.....

    but clever all the same ~ except that we couldn't follow the logic [and I use that term very loosely] of what it was trying to get across.

    Love the laugh you guys are having though, and thanks for the congrats as well!
