Mortiday.

A coined word for a gloomy Monday. Who coined it? Google word verification. And there should be a word that means the recognition of the usefulness of an accidental or machine generated new word. A found coin.

A found coin or a coined find?

You decide.

Ha ha. Just got a lot of sleep in the last 18 hours. Note yesterday's lack of postage.

One of my best friends died today of cancer.

Mortiday is overwhelmingly compelling.

I noted yesterday's lack of everything. What a yuck day in SC. 8 inches of rain in 12 days.

No, she's trying to find an excuse to keep Meade from dragging her out in the cold again ;)

Oh, but we are about to go out skiing again. We go every day!

I got "sumsist" just now. Sumsist sounds like a pile on version of subsist, the act of barely making it through life.

One sumsists on Mortiday.

Cheers,
Victoria

Sorry to hear that, Paul. Condolences for your loss.

Cheers,

A found coin or a coined find?

A kind fiend?
A fine koan?
A corned fawn on rye?

What reason do you need, Ann?
