🤔Catamount😏

Hi Everyone!

A Catamount – what the heck is a catamount? The Merriam-Webster Dictionary says: Any of various wild cats like “cougar” which can also be called “puma”. Cougar can also be a middle aged woman seeking a romantic relationship with a younger man.

Then we have “lynx” a wildcat with long legs, stubby tail, mottled coat and usually tufted ears. AKA bobcat. Lynx can also be a dim constellation between “Usra Major” and “Gemni” shaped like a Lynx. Don’t forget the Vermont Catamounts basketball team from the University of Vermont.

Have a great day! Hope

Hamartia

Hi Everyone!

Ouch! Ouch! Her voice pierces my ears! She’s won the battle! Where are my ear muffs?

Can you give me an idea when Ralph might be able to hit the target?

Dot: Okay girls this should be the best tournament! Hope: Who did you put a wager on? Abby: Ralph is pretty good and Mort is a hit or miss kind of cupid. Dot: I know what you mean. Hope: Last year Mort missed ten (10) hearts out of twelve (12). But I still put a wager on him, he is finally wearing contacts. Abby: Mort just missed!

To me what hurts the most between people are harsh words about others. Those words are like swords through that person’s heart. Especially if they are closest, dearest, trustworthy, reliable, truthful person you know!

Have a great day! Hope

🙋‍♀️Two-bit

Hi Everyone!

Do you know what “two-bit” means? I have heard it when I was younger a couple of eons ago.

Answer: Two bits is commonly understood in America to be one quarter. The word “bit” long meant, in England, any coin of a low denomination. In early America, “bit” was used for some Spanish and Mexican coins that circulated and were worth one-eighth of a peso, or about 12 and one-half cents. Hence, two bits would have equaled about 25 cents.

Very interesting wouldn’t you say.

In your country has it ever “coined” a phrase similar to USA?

🤷‍♀️Zero-sum❓

Hi Everyone!

Well what do you think of this word, or hyphenated word, or never mind, let’s read the definition:

of, relating to, or being a situation (such as a game or relationship) in which a gain for one side entails a corresponding loss for the other side

Now do you really think you are going to win this round?

Sorry Boulder-dash you missed us!

WOW! Do you ever think our government will find a new budget?

Tune

Hi Everyone!

I heard a tune the other day and I can’t get it out of my head. Has that ever happened to you? The tune you ask – The Rose by Bette Midler. Close your ears I’m starting to sing The Rose! Hey come on sing with me!

The Rose song by Bette Midler
Some say love it is a river 
That drowns the tender reed 
Some say love it is a razor 
That leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love it is a hunger 
An endless aching need 
I say love it is a flower 
And you it’s only seed
It’s the heart afraid of breaking 
That never learns to dance 
It’s the dream afraid of waking that never takes the chance 
It’s the one who won’t be taken 
Who cannot seem to give 
And the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live
When the night has been too lonely 
And the road has been too long 
And you think that love is only 
For the lucky and the strong 
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows 
Lies the seed 
That with the sun’s love 
In the spring 
Becomes the rose
