Emily Geiger was born in Lexington District, South Carolina back in 1765 to John and Emily. When the American Revolutionary War started her father was not able to go to the battlefield. So what is a red blooded American girl to do, well she went in her father’s place that is sort of.You see there was an all important message that needed to be delivered to General Nathanael Greene which of course was across enemy grounds. So Emily volunteered to go in her father’s place. The message was written down and told to her at the same time. She saddled up and headed off to deliver the message.

  To “bluster” anyone may get you in trouble. Yes sir this may get you in trouble or a good thumping by someone.  I’ve had people try this one on me when I was a cop and they usually wound up in jail.  Now don’t go jumping to conclusions before you read the meaning of the word (blus’ter) to conduct oneself in a noisy, swaggering, or bullying manner.  Yes the days when someone tried to bully me in uniform such fond memories.. :)

  Do you know a “leaker”. Again let’s not go there.  I’m not talking about faucets, garden hoses or anything like that.  This goes deeper and we have all experienced this.  I’m curious and you don’t need to tell on yourself if you have ever done this.  I know I have but not intentionally so does that count?  Anyway the meaning of (lek’-er) is a person why leaks secret or private information.  I did it but I did not know it was a secret.  Anyway having confessed my past sins what say you?

  Ever had a “ho” moment? Now, now let’s not go there.  Besides you ought to know me better than that. This one is one I know you’ll enjoy.  It happens to me on a weekly basis and sometimes more than once a day which I find is a pleasure.  So today’s question is how many times a day do you experience this?  The meaning of (ho) is an exclamation of pleasure, surprise, derision etc.  So tell me (us) how many times a day does this happen to you?

    Yep I sure do.  In fact I know more of these than I want to.  Although I may like them as a person I really don’t like to deal with them because of this.  What’s more disturbing is when they are a client with this problem.  So without further adieu the meaning of (men da’shen) is not truthful; lying or false.  So now I ask you again do you know someone who is mendacious.

Thoughts 3 My interior decorating challenged wife couldn't care less if I hung a crystal chandelier or a kerosene lamp in our living room but for some ungodly reason she brought home and hung in her office (without telling me) one of those crazy bird clocks that screech every hour on the hour. Well at two o'clock the mating call of the yellow warbler bought sent this old girl into cardiac arrest.   Where's that eraser? Just checked my itinerary for the day and it seems I forgot to pencil in nap time. #%^*@ there. Nap: 3:00   Wouldn't you think that if Conan O'Brien has millions of dollars he could find a barber that could tame that crazy hair?
