A Gallimaufrey of Words

Welcome to Round 7 of ABC Wednesday. The meme was started by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt, and people from all over the world come together to play and share their entries. Each week word(s) beginning with the designated letter are selected and illustrate through a photo, poem or prose. My twist on the meme is selecting unusual words and pairing them with photos of familiar things in my world. I’ll be pulling words from sources here, here and, of course, here.

Let’s get unusual…

goggle: stare with round eyes.
Bridget is one of Apprentice’s two cats we’ve been harboring until she graduated and became employed. Her sister, Midget, is literally her litter mate. Army Wife has one more of the Calico sisters from what was referred to at the shelter as the Irish Kittens (born 3.17.05). She’s really a sweet kitty. No. Really. She is.

gelid: extremely cold.
I know it’s August, but the slow burn hot flashes this summer have me thinking about cooler days.

grandsire: grandfather. (aka: Papa)
If you want to see an left-brained, High D, Type A driven, Entrepreneur-type of man melt in front of your eyes, put Peanut in his arms. If you want to see how it all began, read Alter Ego. When Army Wife/Guy leave our home, his depression just might rival mine.

Gallimaufrey: A medley; any confused jumble of things.

  1. I’m always learning new words here every week. The kitten as lovely Green eyes, and cute pink nose. And the Granddaughter is a cutie also. Great choice of G words.
