Ores are found in stones, which brings us back to the medication question some pages ago...
His stones are missing too?

Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown,
Tapping at the window and crying through the lock,
Are all the children in their beds, it's past eight o'clock?

"Wee Willie Winkie" was originally in Scots English, and was a very early version of "Now Go the F**k to Sleep"
"Wee Willie Winkie rins through the town
Up stairs and doon stairs in his nicht-gown
Tirling at the window, crying at the lock
Are the weans in their bed, for it's now ten o clock?
and one of the 3 following verses that show "NGTFTS" is nae a new thing-
"Onything but sleep, you rogue! glow'ring like the moon,
Rattling in an airn jug wi' an airn spoon,
Rumbling, tumbling round about, crawing like a cock,
skirling like a kenna-what, wauk'ning sleeping fock."

Sending quantum healing energies and wellness spells your way, Emma.
I too send you healing energy, Emma. And I would send you Ruby because she has very special magic powers. She can put a smile on anyone's face. I suspect your cat wouldn't be happy but. So plain old woowoo vibes it is.
Positive vibing away. I suspect wild horses couldn't keep you away.
Islander, thanks for that. I'll be practicing my glottal stop.
