Today's post is brought to you by the letter F




"There's nothing better on a foggy, fallish day than a hot feed of fish and brewis with figgy duff for dessert. Keeps you from getting all farbed up."

----------
Fallish - the feeling of autumn in the air

Farbed up - confused and not in control

Fatback - a piece of fatty tissue from a pig

Figgy duff - a boiled pudding made with flour, water and raisins (also called fig duff or figgy pudding)

Fish and Brewis - a meal of fish accompanied by soaked hard bread served separately on the same plate and covered with scrunchins(fried fatback) and hot, rendered pork oil.

Fog - collection of water droplets suspended in the air at or near the Earth's surface. (pictured above)

  9. From all of the comments, I think "farbed up" is a hit. I'd have to agree - and will be adopting it myself. :)

  10. And you say this Fish and Brewis is good? Cause soaked bread with fish doesn't sound that appetizing.

  17. LOL...I once knew someone from the Maritimes who said "All farbed up"!!! Now I know what it means!

  18. I also like farbed up but I thought, using context, that it meant constipated. Oh well. I am learning new vocabulary.

  20. Vocab lesson is much appreciated. Farbed up will get some better usage after your post.

  21. Living in the tropics I have never experienced the "Fallish" feeling. I think it would be my favourite time of year.

  23. Farbed up...I think I've just found my new catch phrase. Gorgeous picture.

    You got my Family Ties trivia right! It was indeed Nixon on Alex's lunchbox. Excellent work. ;)

  24. Farbed up, a much better "F" word. I like it! (and I relate to it, well)

  25. Farbed which I read as farbled, is a lovely word that I'm sure to adopt. the foggy photo is beautiful.
