    Toppling is what a stack of wooden blocks does when it gets all tippy.

    We need another word for the tree catastrophe. I’ll ponder it while I work.

      Thank you I would appreciate it. Because we need another word, like Clobberdobbering or Avalanche-a-leveling or Blotzing. You get my drift.

    I’ve been having trouble with whether or not to put one or two spaces after a period. Sometimes when I’m blogging and I’ve put the normal two spaces, the words wrap to a next line and leave it indented. I don’t like that so I’m slowly coming around to only one space. But I didn’t know it was an intergalactic controversy. I always learn something from you, Cupcake.

      Trust me. It is intergalactic. And, make no mistake, it’s one space. Don’t be sorry, be careful on this one.
