“If we were all determined to play the first violin we should never have an ensemble.” – Robert Schumann, 19th century German composer
Life is a play. It’s not its length, but its performance that counts. – Seneca
I love words. I have often kept on reading the dictionary even after I found the definition of a word or how it’s spelled. That is one reason for sending you the following posting. The other reason is that I thought it was very clever.
FUN WORD PLAY (Hey, we all need a smile every now and then):
I have been in many places, but I’ve never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can’t go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.
I’ve also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.
I have, however, been in Sane. They don’t have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work. I live close so it’s a short drive.
I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I’m not too much on physical activity anymore.
I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go and I try not to visit there too often.
I’ve been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.
Sometimes I’m in Capable, and I go there more often as I’m getting older.
One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense. It really gets the adrenaline flowing and pumps up the old heart. At my age I need all the stimuli I can get.
And, sometimes I think I am in Vincible; but life shows me I am not.
People keep telling me I’m in Denial but I’m positive I’ve never been there before.
I have been in Deepshit many times; the older I get, the easier it is to get there.
So far, I haven’t been in Continent, but my travel agent says I’ll be going soon.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I had my 2 daughters and 2 grandchildren here so it was a small gathering. My youngest daughter and her daughter are both vegetarians, but my daughter cooked the turkey and brought it. Delicious! My oldest daughter brought a cake a friend had made for her which was decorated like a wrapped gift box, ribbon and all. And it was all edible. It was almost too beautiful to eat. But we did.
Then later we played Scrabble and my Jennifer played all her tiles in one play and got 66 points! It was her game from that point on. But fun. My oldest daughter spent her time between plays trying to fix my grandson’s lap computer, but a part was broken and she wasn’t able to get it to work.
My son called from Oregon where he and 10 others in his daughter and son-in-law’s family were having a 21 lb turkey.
Everyone had a great time and I hope your day was just as joyful. Now we get to look forward to Christmas.
