Right on, now give me a hand to rig up the rodney you randy old rag moll before I gets rotted and leaves you alone.

ravel {rhymes with gravel} - a loose thread

  8. I've learned more new words from you since the A-Z started than I've learned in a life time. :) Thanks. I think I'll use the word rotted at myself if I don't get my bum off this computer chair and get on with the day.
