ONE of the more popular suggestions for the solution to last week’s What Is It? item was “an eye bath”, an answer sent in by scores of readers.
Its owner Judith Christie told us the item was actually an ice cream lick, or penny lick.
We had about 60 emails on this one.
Apologies to those that had the right answer but were beaten to the punch by our fastest respondents including Jane Hutcheon, Margaret Armstrong, Adrian Jack, Judi Brettoner, Rebekah Tunks, Rob Mawson, Matti Lahtinen, Jim Webster, Pam Elliott, Rose Adler and Alice Evans.
