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

Salacious is how the food really tastes to them. (sailors) It's not quite delicious, after all. It's the sailor's palate's compromise. Tabasco sauce helps in making said food salacious.

For any newcomers to Thesaurus Thursday, the "rules" can be found by using the link on the sidebar right below that slllllooooowwwww turtle.

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