Thanks Jean. Very Happy

A quick fun Change a Letter Question, there may be more than one answer.

How did I get from cat to dog?

What are the six missing three letter words? I have changed only one letter each time. What can you come up with and who will be first? Can you do it in less than six words = seven changes?

cat
...
...
...
...
...
...

dog

On your marks, get set, go!

Well, here's a clue. It's somewhere in the north of England Jean, but not in your neck of the woods!

After some research I think it is part of the Rosedale Chimney Bank ruins on the North Yorkshire Moors?

If this is correct then there used to be a chimney there which was 100 foot tall which was demolished in 1972.

It was part of an ironstone mine which closed in 1929.

And you're correct Wendy! These are the old kilns that were used for 'roasting' the ironstone at Rosedale Abbey mine.

Your turn.........

Hello Jean!

I have the same answers - walk, pumice, Japan and skin.

The others, you may well be correct,  however, I have seven minutes for number 1,  twelve hours for number 4, and stomach for number 7.

Any ideas for answers to numbers 6, 8 and 9 from anyone?
