Oh, the silly little games I play.....

I want to give you the random challenge of the day. I love the word Onomatopoeia (occasionally spelled onomateopoeia or onomatopœia, from Greek ονοματοποιία). I love to say onomatopoeia it's fun. For those of you that can't remember what it is; it is a word or a grouping of words that imitates the sound it is describing, suggesting its source object, such as "click, "clang," "buzz," or animal noises such as "oink", "slurp", or "meow". You may remember them from back in the day when Batman and Robin would punch someone the words would pop up.....

- - - even though "POWIE" and "ZLOP" are still under debate in my book - - -
I challenge you to use as many Onomatopoeia's today as you can.
Let me know what you come up with and how you use them.

How do you like your steak?

Here is my favorite place to eat within a 20 mile radius of my house. I ate here Saturday night and had a phenomenal medium rare filet with their scrumptious marinade that I want to rub all over my body. In my book it is right up there with Yocona, but more of an au jus.
Today, as you can see from this picture, it exploded. I am sad for the owners of this restaurant and for the owners wife's father. He was badly hurt during the propane explosion and had to be airlifted to Jackson. A few of the workers from the gas company were injured as well while they were changing out some type of valve. I hope everyone has a speedy recovery and open back up with a bigger better facility closer to my in my back yard, maybe.
I do owe each and everyone of my three readers an apology for not blogging in 2 months. That is absolutely ridiculous on my part and I have no excuse. My mother in law is doing much better, but other than that I've felt like a big poo head with no good news. You know like Debbie Downer from SNL. I will have to think of something interesting to talk about and get back to you....not in two months, in no later than a week. Call and harass me if I don't post - - - (Susan)
Love you all too manies and thank you for your forgiveness.
