My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

Your mind is the garden, your
thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

Thesaurus Thursday

Just in case this is your first time by here on a Thesaurus Thursday, the "rules" of Thesaurus Thursday are as follows:

First and foremost, leave as many funny definitions for either word (or both) as you can think up in the comments!! The ones that make me laugh the hardest will be given the Silly Goose Award.

Next, if you know (or think you know) the true definitions without looking them up then be sure and leave those in the comments too!! All definitions that are correct (or close enough for government work and Mighty Mom) will win the Smarty Pants Award!

Awards will be given out in Monday's post, so don't forget to come and see if you won!

This week's words are inspired by Ma Kettle:

OK MightyMom....since the Chief decided to get "personal" in our weekly challenge...and wasn't even attentive enuff to put his entry into the correct blogpost comment section, I guess I gotta offer return fire....

Oxpecker- Something found cooking over "The Smoldering Embers of a Mohawk Campfire"...OR...

A Woodpeckers near-sighted cousin....OR...

A term used to describe the irritable and cantankerous character traits and personality of the person tending to the "Smolder Embers of a Mohawk Campfire"...i.e..."Man...that Chief is a real Oxpecker most of the time".

Mom, you can really "peck" 'em.
Oviparous (oh VY per us)-adjective - full of snakes.
usage - Junior, you don't wanna go skinny dippin' in there. It's oviparous.

Oviparous - Egg-shaped.
usage - Verleen was so oviparous she was scared to go to the Easter Egg hunt.

oxpecker - a distinguishing physical attribute of an oxymoron.

I am rolling!

I realize that I have the potential to go off color in the silly goose I do know both words.

Now I am embarrassed to admit my silly goose thoughts!

Too funny to combine these words as that is what makes it so hilarious!
