Ahh, Tipper! Our 'swing set' was an old tire hung from a rope. All five of us kids would patiently wait for a turn on it. My kids had a metal swing set, always full of laughing children. Hubby salvaged an old frame from somewhere for the grandkids,and built the swings. Now it stands in the yard, with plants hanging from the hooks, bright flowers of memories past.

I did well on your vocabulary quiz. Most of those words and phrases were common, whilst I was 'jerked up' in the Ozarks of Missouri. Here on our ridges and in the hollers, they are becoming rarer as technology replaces our words and thoughts with homogenous terms and many of the older generation have now 'went on'. We need to stop being 'dilatory' about saving these wonderful words and their meanings! They bring a pleasant flavor to language and a rich seasoning to conversation
