Wow, guess I can see how you'd come up with that, but no, nothing to do with bats or belfries.

May be time to try a re-write, hmm?

hey t_l - to let you know am still on the case and for a deserv-ed bump even though i know things are terribly slow here as of late.

all i gotsk is maybe on the first half of 4. something to do with a lion from "predator of the Savannah" and "lays eggs" (lyin'???}. anyway this one seems to be some sort of animal; maybe a mythical beast?

will keep at it.

2. Predator of the Savanna X Shere Khan's mate = Napoleon (character)'s favorite animal -> REWRITE

4. (Flying predator X Predator of the Savanna) X Lady's mount = River horse's Warwickshire address -> CLARITY

4. Swindle without a break lays eggs X Lady's (lady) mount = Famous Harry's ride -> REWRITE
