FRA 111

Continuing on, and returning once again to the cryptic meaning behind the license plate FRA 111, and since we've covered the cryptic elements of 111, we now need to consider  what "FRA" is designed to communicate?  It's not a "modern" day word in itself, butt in earlier times it was a word, and it is a prefix of many words... and as an anagram we you get :far and raf (as in riffraff).

These are some words beginning with FRA that occurred to me in this order:
 "Fraggle Rock" is the 'audd' one out.  It came to me because it was a favourite show of my daughters when she was around 5.  Note from Fraggle Rock's wiki page:
  •  Fraggle Rock (also known as Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock or Fraggle Rock with Jim Henson's Muppets) is a British/American/Canadian children's live action puppet television series about interconnected societies of Muppet creatures, created by Jim Henson.
  •  James Maury Henson (September 24, 1936 – May 16, 1990)
He  died on Rob MacGregors birthday (see previous post).  Henson's birthday also stands out in that it connects with a notable person mentioned on my first post today, RAF 111:
2001 – Robert Laxalt, American author (b. 1923) 
  • Robert Laxalt (September 25, 1923 – March 23, 2001)
We now have a "September 24, 25, __/ Date Sequence" pattern-cluster.  It's interesting to note that Henson's surname is a cryptic "chicken son"... it make perfect cryptic sense, relating to Rob MacGregor!!!  Note the following info re cast/crew of Fraggle Rock:

  • Jerome Ravn "Jerry" Juhl (July 27, 1938 – September 26, 2005) 
  • Barrie Phillip Nichol (30 September 1944  – 25 September 1988)
  • Carol Bolt (August 25, 1941 – November 28, 2000) 
  • Dennis Beynon Lee (born August 31, 1939) 
  • Steven Lawrence "Steve" Whitmire (born September 24, 1959)
Three 'timely' deaths!!!  AND then there's August 25, which is also the birthday of my granddaughter, AND August 31 is the birthday of Megan MacGregor-- the daughter of Rob and Trish, which you can also verify on their blog.    And of course theres an expansion to the cluster: "September 24(x2), 25 (x2), 26,  __, __, __, 30/Date Sequence" pattern-cluster.  Hmm, the next in line re gap is the 27th ... note this excerpt from my previous post:

  • January 27, February 27, March 27 (x3), __, __, __, July 27.../ 27th Day, Month Sequence" pattern-cluster.
