Banished Words

Rick put me onto a website that’s , well, a must-see. It’s from Lake Superior State University, and I agree that these are words and phrases that need a rest.

Bansihed Words


Yesterday was the Thirteenth Anniversary of my marriage to a woman who no-doubt deserves better. One of my stock jokes goes “…married 11 happy years, and out of 13, that’s not too bad’.

Tonight we added it up and we’ve also lived in 13 different homes/apartments in that time. Lotsa moves; no wonder our kids have declared themselves stateless persons.

Here’s hoping 2003 yields stability and happiness for all of us, my house and yours.
