Someone emailed me this...

It is a modified version of anagrams.
Pick a starting word and then continue by changing the order of the letters and/or changing, adding, or deleting one letter.

steamer
(reorder and change e to r)
armrest
(reorder and delete t)
rearms





Well maybe (mix)

Merlin

could work some magic and improve the story line

If the critters are made of wood or metal I think I'll just drop the G, paint them with
