Hello, dear readers,
Wishing everyone a very happy month of May! It’s “Get Caught Reading Month” and I hope you do.
I’ve designated “Velocipede” as my favorite word of the month. It was the name given to most any bicycle built in the early 1800s. While there seems to be some debate over which came first, the French designed Velocipede or the British engineered Penny Farthing of the late 1800s, the Penny Farthing was arguably the safer of the two. However, brakes were unheard of at the time. Do you recall learning how to ride a bike? How many falls did you take before balance took over?
What’s your word for May?
Do you ever wish your phone would stop spell-checking every time you want to text like you speak? Those automatic word substitutions have me editing what I say before I even say it. Maybe that’s a good thing 😉
Until again, dear friends, happy hug your cat day, and don’t forget to call your mom on Mother’s Day.
