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.

Izzard--lizzard who lost his head instead of his tail, and it didn't grow back. I guess that makes him dead. Poor Izzard.

Mecopterus: Latin for the plea one makes to interrupt and persuade an officer writing a ticket to stop, after being caught dead to rights speeding because you were trying to get three children to three different activities within a twenty minute time period.

Sorry, no Smarty Pants Winners this week, but try again on the new words!!

The words for this week are:

eidolon

eidetic




For those of you who are new this year, all words and definitions come from my 1992 Random House Webster's College Dictionary. I do not pick proper nouns or words that I know the meaning of.

For all winners, the Awards will continue to be found on my sidebar to pick up at your leisure.

Now don't forget to leave your comments for the new words!
