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

Well, the trivia answer was Kelly's Heros. My favorite war movie! Sutherland stole the show as far as I'm concerned!!

For next week, work on these:
rakehell
raillery



Last Week's Definitions:
curtilage - the land occupied by a dwelling and its yard, outbuildings, etc., actually enclosed or considered as enclosed

cushaw - any of several squashes having long curved necks, esp. varieties of Cucurbita mixta. (Congrats Smarty Pants Lori!)



Silly Goose Winner this week is:

Lori in South Dakota:
Curtilage--where a red neck lives and he wants people to think he has a fancy "out in the country" acreage.


For any newcomers to Thesaurus Thursday, the "rules" can be found here.

Well, I know what a rakehell is: Someone who has a bad reputation for partying and living the wild, reckless life, and for womanizing.

Raillery: Hmmm....A place where you buy rails???

Raillery--I think it's like finery.

Rakehell,

What I tell ABNMOMMA when she tells me to get the yard work done and the NASCAR race is just starting..Rake,hell woman, can't you see the race is starting!

Raillery,

Diane was close, a Raillery is where train tracks are made, not sold.

Kelly's Heroes is one of my favorite movies period. Don Rickles was pretty funny too but Oddball was just great.

K I'll say
raillery - is the act of taunting somebody - heckling.

Rakehell is what you tell somebody they're gonna do if they get in trouble.

raillery: what happens on a blog when trolls try to hijack the content with nasty comments.

Rakehell: The spelling Ms. Welch had to use for her email address when all the other variants for her name had been taken.

raillery: What Hamlet the Little Engine tells Ophelia the very useful engine to get herself to in the Thomas the Tank Engine Special 40th year anniversary edition of Thomas does Shakespeare in Sodor.
"Get Thee to a Raillery!" She is found submerged in the creek by some troublesome trucks.
