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.

Thesaurus Thursday

Ok, a couple of changes here. But let's start with an apology, I tried to get this out last night but the computer would cooperate....forgive me??

For any newcomers to Thesaurus Thursday, the "rules" can be found by using the link on the sidebar right below that turtle that isn't moving (have you noticed?).

For all winners, the Awards can be found just below the "rules" on the sidebar to pick up at your leisure.

By moving these over to the side I am hoping to lessen what you have to scroll through without reading to find out the really important parts......

The Winners, Definitions and new Words.

I hope this makes it easier, if you think it's not an improvement..feel free to let me know.


On with the show.

Hmmm. I'm going to fudge a bit because it's late and my brain is mush.

Yestreen--opposite of a notreen? These are the two holes in a LAtreen, to be alternated when in use.

Yeanling--younger than a yearling.

Or it could be a Chinaman with yisp. (lisp)

Jungle Mom said...

Yeanling:My six year old saying "green bean" with his front teeth missing?

yestreen: What menopausal women are lacking. (yesterday's ESTROGEN)
