Hi Everyone!

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

Hi Everyone!

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.

So what the heck is a “cruciverbalist”?
Creators of

Back in the beginning the puzzles were called “word crosses” and their creators because known as “cruciverbalist”.

Daily Prompt: Dim

See the source imageDim

Hi Everyone!

The light bulb is dimming, better get a new one.
See the source imageThe 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. See the source image
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.

Have a great day! Hope
