Thursday’s Special: Pick a Word in November

Once a month for Thursday’s Special, Paula has a list of five words to choose from, or you can, like me, do them all!

dormant – my garden in winter372

salubrious – At E+O Restaurant (Randhurst Village, Mt. Prospect, Illinois), they make a salad that is not only unique, it is delicious! The ingredients are: brussels sprouts, kale, minced shrimp, red onions, red cabbage, carrots, chilis, and sweet chili vinaigrette dressing. It is one of the most popular items on their menu and very salubrious!20170215_115738

influential – The French painter Paul Gauguin was influenced by several different sources, especially the years he lived in Polynesia. Another French artist,Paul Cézanne, was influential to Gauguin in this painting entitled Woman in Front of a Still Life by Cézanne.20170908_121538 (2)

earmarked – This little Beanie Baby donkey was earmarked for customers who supported the Democrats in the 2012 presidential election. His name is “Lefty.”20171105_172938_001

fun-loving – My brother-in-law sings in a barbershop chorus called The Arlingtones. They are a very fun-loving group! In June, they put on a very funny show tracing humankind from present to past.

In this number, my brother-in-law is the mermaid at the front of the boat!
Here my fun-loving brother-in-law is the guy wearing a red tunic and a wig!

  1. This is a great post. I loved seeing Cezane’s painting, the earmarked bunny (I congratulate you on your interpretation) and most of all salubrious salad. I wish I had a garden like yours 🙂

    1. Thanks, Paula. The use of earmarked was a tough one. The only thing I could think about was that Beanie Babies always come with tags in their ears. But when I checked mine, I had cut them all off! Then I found the donkey with his striped ears and then I realized the marketing to Democrats was a type of earmarking.
