brail (not the reading system, but in nautical terms, to either: a) gather or haul in a sail by means of brails, or b) transfer fish from a net to the hold of a ship, or in non-nautical terms, a leather binding for a hawk's wings, to prohibit flight, or to bind the wings of a bird in order to prevent it from flying)

If that is too difficult we could start with a new word:

Runculus

Isn't the plural for druid just druids? Or are you just playing around? And what is runculus. I'm going to cheat and change two letters, unless someone can make something with druid...

DRUGS

DRUGS

Please refer to the Oxford Unabridged - it will confirm these. I checked mine.

AND - I stumped the Beaver!

What do you mean you just followed me? ??? ???
I think JimBob means that he made the word droid and you made druid which lead to a dead end (i.e, you couldn't think of another word which doesn't lead to a dead end) so he had you stumped  :o (caught  :o, lbw  :o, bowled   [B)], run-out  [:-'(], hit wicket  [xx(], whatever  :) :))

Not so. I posted a legitimate word following on from yours, Jim replied with druii and that was what stumped everyone. I can't be blamed if people cannot come up with words to follow on from what other people put  :P

Then proceed onward from DRUII Or are you not up to the challenge?
