Abby: Hey girls! Have you met the new neighbor that just moved in next to Nins? Hope, Mable, Dot: No. When did they move in? Abby: Last Friday. Hope, Mable, Dot: Have you seen them yet? Or talked to them? How many live there? Abby: Nins will have to tell you that I haven’t seen anyone or anything yet. Nins: New Neighbors seem to be nice. The wife will fit right in with our group for sure. The husband, well, his voice sounds soooooo soft, I feel like I’m floating on air.
Do you know anyone that comes up to you and says and talks, talks, talks? Then all of a sudden they stop! It’s time to getaway! Then you here “Did you know?” Me, you would think I had learned my lesson from the last time Mrs. Guilderfess was at the art museum fundraiser. She sure is a “snoot“.
Hope: Hey Nins! Look whose walking her dog this morning. Nins: I don’t believe it. Hope: Nins, who are you calling? Nins: Abby of course, she won’t want to miss this. She has such class or at least she thinks so with that outfit.
Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! I have to take a picture! He’s so snobby with me and my family. We have been neighbors for twenty (20) years and he has never smiled, say hi. But that doesn’t stop me saying hi. Or how are you Mr. Guilderfess? Missed you at the museum fundraiser last week. I always have a smile and a pot of tea ready just in case he takes my offer for some “Earl Grey” tea. He’s not as snooty as his wife.
Extraordinary. Are you extraordinary? Are your friends, relatives, neighbors, co-workers extraordinary? What is an extraordinary being? And no I do not mean a being like E. T. (Extra-Terrestail) Let me rephase that sentence – do you know an extraordinary person?
If you do have you ever said anything to them? Wrote them a little note? Entered them to win an award for what they do? Have you ever just said thank you for something you noticed they did for someone else?
What the heck? Let me break up the word: Mal = bad or badly, Apert = open, honest, Put them both together you get “malapert” = a bold or impudent person.
In other words someone who is “open” or “honest” in a bad way.
Do you know anyone that is like that? If you said no, then I think you better recheck your family, friends, neighbors, work place. Still no, wake up! Smell the coffee! Smell the roses! Come on now, recheck!! Recheck!!! I know you can do it!!!! Oh My Gosh!! Am I being “malapert” in my writing today??
Have a great day! Hope Clip Art from Bing.com Malapart word from M-W’s Word of the Day Malapart definition from Merriam-Webster Dictionary.com
My neighbor is a “cruciverbalist”. On the weekends his whole family is involved. Unbelievable how they test each other.
They invited us over one time. Great people and good sports about being a “cruciverbalist”. They explained to us what we have to look for and then decieve if that is the correct spelling, number of letters, will this work well with the other words going across and down.
We now have monthly challenges. I really have to thank my neighbors for learning something new, creative, mind boggingly, entertaining. Thank you neighbors for showing us the meaning of crossword puzzles, how to challenge others with words.

The light bulb is dimming, better get a new one. The lite candle is slowly dimming, it’s close to the bottom of the wick. The sun is setting, dimming the sky, Soon the moon will be up, bringing a moonlit night. Each day we dim a little ourselves. Then a surprise comes our way and the dimming subsides. Remember everyday you receive a surprise. Oh Yes You Do! It’s not a huge thing like your birthday or Christmas gifts. You look out your window and you see life starting for the day. Flower bud opening up, birds chirping, neighbor picking up their newspaper that is 20 feet away from their door. I know you have a grin on your face, because your neighbor complains everyday. I hope after reading this, your dimness has left for the day.

a loved one relatives, friends, neighbors, the animal(s) they loved Cat, Dog, horse, bird, goat, pig, the lost of their favorite tree, flower, bush they had for many years, the lost of their home thru fire, weather disaster.
Words are hard to come by when others have a loss. Just do the best you can. Let it come from the heart.
