Ragtag’s Daily Prompt word today is thingamajig. It is a word we’ve always used (or one like it) when we don’t know or remember the name of something. I looked up the word to see how it would be defined: Merriam-Webster has a good, concise definition: something that is hard to classify or whose name […]Read More RDP: Thingamajig or Whatchamacallit
The Ragtap Daily Prompt today is normal. Are we in a “new normal” era? Some people say yes, others say no. We have been experiencing this stay-at-home edict for over a month now, and our governor just extended it to May 30!

The American Heritage dictionary defines sequacious as follows: se·qua·cious (sĭ-kwā′shəs) adj. 1. Highly impressionable or unquestioning, especially in following a leader or embracing an idea: “False […]Read More Sunday RDP: Sequacious – Trump voters and caterpillars

Posted for RDP #70: CONTACT. About a month ago, I made direct contact with the pavement of a sidewalk about a mile from home. The pictures that were taken of me are gruesome and so I am posting another photo of pavement, with a wee caterpillar crossing it, taken just a few days ago!
