Sounds like between us we've covered the entire country. Any chance of another clue to pin it down a bit ?

I was trying to think laterally with a play on words like a stake/steak with 2 meanings. But for the life of me I could'nt think of anything connecting library/cannon except magazine (magazine in a gun).

I cant think what kind of book you wouldnt find in a library or the ball that doesnt go in a cannon apart from the dressing up kind.
As we are looking for a place name as a starting point I didnt think it would be this difficult to get started on.

My thoughts on this seemed to point to North London as it appears to be refering to a famous football team's recently demolished old ground... probably completly wrong tho :)

Perhaps an extra clue showing the county might be handy on this one since the possible locations coming up are dotted all over the country.

I'm starting to think the same as Mary can't find the correct way.

North or South,
East or West,
where's the location that fits this best.

A single coin hidden in two towns at the same time

Just hope it's not between the two towns... looks dangerous

Hello everyone. This is my first post here.

I think this Isis is in a 'shoe' of some kind but I'm not sure where and that the Mary referred to is Queen Mary II.

Here's my interpretation of the clue:

"Not in the library," -> something borrowed (as in a book on loan)
"Not inside a Cannon," -> something 'blew' (yes, I know, it's a bit forced - the capital 'C' is odd though)
"Not at Ebenezer's house," -> something new (Scrooge never bought new stuff)
"Mary might know the way." -> only "something old" left.

The ryhme continues "and a sixpence in her shoe". One minting of the old sixpence features Queen Mary II. A sixpence is certainly something old and the Isis are identified using coins which leads to the coin being in a shoe.

I've checked my shoes but it's not in them.

Skizz - You may want to do a bit of reading and learning before you start writing. :shock:

As you're a newbie (and I haven't exactly been around here for long :) ) I don't want to be too hard on you but you seem about as up-to-date with this and Puzz's thought process when setting clues as you are with the IOW clue. :?

Read, learn, think (in that order) and only then contribute. :wink:

I quite liked my idea - it came to me in that half-asleep state just before waking up. However, as Shiny rightly points out I need to get into the swing of things here - especially reading posts by PUZZ! Reading his hint and looking on line, the clues tie up with places in the town hinted at. How it all comes together I don't know, and it's too far to just pop over and have a look around.

A different way of thinking Skizz :)

Cannon could to be a place or a person rather than a large gun because of the capital C.

Thanks for not taking it to heart Skizz. :wink:

Although, perhaps I was a bit too harsh and I did forget to first welcome you to the adventure - Well done Karen; great as ever. :)

Furthermore, who knows, you may just be right. After all, I do not have much of an idea where it is. :?

You may well be on to something by spotting the capital C though. 8)

Good luck! :D
