Dreams with Deadlines

#28: 3 for 50 and counting





I finished my 3rd book yesterday. Mr. Bones, the canine hero of the book, is the sidekick and confidant of Willy G. Christmas, a brilliant and troubled homeless man from Brooklyn. As Willy's body slowly expires, he sets off with Mr. Bones for Baltimore in search of his high school English teacher and a new home for his companion. The story is told by Mr. Bones and it is a moving story told from an unlikely perspective.

#25: Learn a new Word Every Day

I am debating whether or not I should keep putting all of the words I learn on here. I'm pretty sure no one cares besides me, but it is a way to review them, and thus attempt to commit them to memory. Ok, I guess I will keep doing it...for now.

24.numismatics: the collection and study of coins.
25. edify: to instruct and improve.
26. melee: a confused conflict.
27. capitulate: to surrender under agreed conditions.
28.
panache: dash or flamboyance in manner or style.
29.
verbiage: an overabundance of words.
30.
fettle: a state or condition of fitness, order, or mind.
31.
slugabed: one who stays in bed until a late hour.
32.
donnybrook: a brawl or dispute.
