We all hope you'll come back and get in on next week's's definitely not too late to join in!

Okay, let's get on with it, huh? This week's winning sentences:

As doyen, the grey wolf bore responsibility for ensuring the pack’s survival through the hard winter. (Jean)

The first mate grabbed the binnacle for support as the waves whipped the boat from side to side. (Jean)

The cat burglar's well-honed skill made his larcenous incursions nearly undetectable. (Awesome McAwesome)

And this week's bonus word was palaver. Awesome is the only one to receive a bonus point this week. (By the way, all the sentences are now posted in the comments if you'd like to read them.)
