The Friday Record - Western Words 2

I haven't had time to search for something to write about this week. My life never seems to slow down as I keep thinking it will....lol.

So, I decided to do a quickie lesson again and have you match up Western words again. The words and definitions are taken from Ramon F. Adams' book WESTERN WORDS: A Dictionary of the Old West.

Once again, just match the Numbers to the Letters. Ex. 15 X, 16 Y, 17, U

1. Arizona Tenor
2. Velvet couch
3. Meat in the pot
4. Chopper
5. Gut-robber
6. Fold up
7. Die in the house's nightcap
8. Knobhead
9. First rattle out of the box
10. Heart and hand woman

A. Rifle
B. Said when a horse starts bucking
C. To be hanged
D. Mail order bride
E. A coughing tubercular
F. A cook
G. Bed roll
H. Prompt action
I. A mule
J. A man employed in cutting out cattle

I'll draw a name on Saturday for everyone who tries to match up the words to their definitions. The winner will receive an e-copy of my novella “Salvation Bride.”
