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.

The dreadfully late word game

Kinda hard to call it Thesaurus Thursday when it doesn't get written till the wee hours of Sunday morning!

Sorry folks, between the family having been hit with the puking stick and working 3 straight nights I didn't get this written anywhere near on time. Next week will be better...we hope.

For next week, work on these:
purpure
purine

"PurPure"... A cop with a stuttering problem attempting to say perpetrator.

BTW Sarah, I visited "Jungle-Hut" as you recommended and loved that video. Having flown planes as much as I have, I really appreciated the skill involved for that landing. Thanks for sending me over there.

Purpure--word concocted by the Pur company to describe their water.

Purine--Dog food company for the micro pups.

Purpure - the noise that emits from a genuinely happy cat

Purine - a more pure form of urine (bad, bad, I know - sorry!)

ABNPOPPA said...

PurPure: I agree with Linda almost, that is the sound of a virgin cat. Purrr.....Pure!



Purine: Doesn't that have something to do with the "gout"?

Pinky said...

Ha! Cookie's definition made me laugh.
I got nothin' for ya. My brain is too tired.

I hope you guys are all feeling better!

Purpure - Referring to anything that is the color purple.

Purine - Not sure about this one, so I'll attempt a funny:

Purine is an old family name: I love my dotty old Aunt Purine, but she has a penchant for dyeing her hair a strange purpure shade of lilac.
