The last edition of Verified Words was in August and blogger just keeps on creating new words. Occasionally, some real words (sallows, taming, brink) appeared as I commented on your blogs, but here are three more "word verifications" that required definitions. Below are my definitions along with the suggestions of dictionary.com and wikipedia. First edition was posted as Round 1. Today's words:
dictionary.com - NOT a word, suggested "abled".
wikipedia - NOT a word, suggested "able".
Lew's definition: able-f - the right f-stop for a photo.
dictionary.com - NOT a word, suggested "assesesses".
wikipedia - NOT a word, suggested "senses".
Lew's definition: s-es-es-es - an over abundance of s's (plural to the max).
dictionary.com - NOT a word, suggested "piation".
wikipedia - NOT a word, suggested "potion".
Lew's definition: pi-tion - 1/3.14159 part of a pie.

The B-24J Liberator is the only restored flying B-24 in the world. This B-24 was built in 1944 and served under the British flag in the Pacific Theater. It was restored by Collins in 1989 and painted with the insignia of the US 15-th Army Air Force. It now carries the insignia of the 8-th Air Force to honor those who served in England in WW II. The original "Witchcraft" B-24 (assigned to the 467 Bomb Group) flew 130 combat missions. After the war the original Witchcraft was scrapped.
The allied bombers needed more protection on the bombing missions into Europe and the P-51 Mustang was developed to fill this need. The P-51 began to accompany the bombers deep into Axis territory in 1942. Nearly 5,000 of these single-seat fighters were built for British and US forces. A few were modified to carry a passenger in a second seat. The Collins P-51 is the only dual-control P-51. The markings and name "Betty Jane" honor Col Charles McCorkle, a P-51 pilot and commander of the 31-st Fighter group in the Mediterranean Theatre.

Arts and crafts vendors are a big part of the festival. We were disappointed that some of our favorites from last year did not return, but the chain saw sculpture was their and we bought a new wooden jack-o-latern. (Marianne posted more shots.)
