Fly Away with Me! Wordy Wednesday, April 1, 2015

Fly Me to the Moon,” crooned Ol’ Blue Eyes. Well, sadly, we don’t have him to send us to the moon anymore, but we can take the MUSCA – fly – hang a left at the moon and head for the S constellation near Crux – and you’ll run into MUSCA. 

No foolin’ on this April Fool’s Day! You’ll enjoy the trip through the stars, and ignore the pesky fly, when using the word Musca to impress your friends.

Are you confused yet? All right … I’ll get my head out of the clouds and give you the unadulterated definition of Musca:
No, it isn’t the front half of a muskrat. Musca is: a fancy name for the common house fly; AND a S constellation near Crux … fly me to the Musca? Also listed as the 77th constellation in size. Fly-high or sky-high!

And the Wordy Wednesday list reaches for the stars …

'Til next time ... have a "wordful" week!

Wave to Wordy Wednesday March 25, 2015

Despite recent snows in some parts of the country, it’s time we pass through the stern Ides of March and march into springy April.

Let the tips of green leaves and hint of glowing sun rays urge you to greet your neighbor with PFP’s Wordy Wednesday spring offering!

HEIGH: (interj.) [Archaic] used to attract notice, show pleasure, express surprise, etc. … think “heigh-ho” neighbor!

Get together with your neighbors and hoe down those weeds on Weed Appreciation Day, March 28th. (Not to be confused with the “highly” popular weed day rite of springtime, April 20th. Heehee.)

And the Wordy Wednesday list grows like a weed …

'Til next time ... have a "wordful" week!

AaBaCcDdEeFfGgeeeee ... wish I had a Guinness!
