Happy Throwback, Froback Friday!!
I was reading about Scottish islands and read this:
The name "Inch" (Innis) can mean island (e.g. Inchkenneth, Inchcolm), but is also used for terra firma surrounded by marsh e.g. Markinch, Insch.
and just had to share!!

This is a thread I started on the other board. 

Based on the "The Gashlycrumb Tinies"
(With apologies to Edward Gorey...)

Edited to spell out the rules:

This is an "ABCdarium" constructed in ominous rhymed couplets.  The letters X and Z are a peculiar challenging in this format and are allowed a "cheat."  The cheated word must contain the letter, the sound of the letter must be a major feature in how the word is pronounced, and it must be capitalized within the word. 

This recap is a collaborative effort (special thanks to Malina, Clancy, Daphne, Dancing Bear, Littlewing, and Pianocellolove, anml-lver!):
A is for Aguirre, with an eagle's glare.
B is for BetterMost Beans made with care.
C is for Cassie who doesn't fall in love with fun.
D is for Delmar who was good with his gun.
E is for Ennis alone with his shirts.
F is the Filly who ditched Jack in the dirt.

S is for Sliding down a hill in the snow
T is the Truck that was parked by the gate.
U is the Unique camera move by the lake.
