Knowing how many of you love a good new word, thought you'd enjoy this link a Facebook friend shared with me. Some inspiration for the word challenge stories?
(The owls are nice too!)

Wow, those really are obsolete! They're all new to me and quite colorful. Thanks.

I've heard of some and others were easy to figure out.  Loved the example for beef-witted.  I hope no one on this board is from Essex, UK!*  Very Happy  (FWIW, I live in Essex County in the US.  sm  )


*Meaning: Stupid, imbecilic.
Origin: 1590s
As in: The Only Way Is Essex is a TV show for the terminally beef-witted.

Ghislaine - If you'd ever watched an episode of TOWIE (as we fondly refer to it!) then you'd know how accurate that statement is! For reference Google Joey Essex!

The words are delightful. Being fuzzled tonight sounds appealing.  bottle  Those photographs are amazing.
