The Friday Record - Western Words 5

The best laid plans....and all that. I had planned to have a historical blog for today, but I never got around to doing it. So, once again, I'm turning to WESTERN WORDS: A Dictionary of the Old West by Ramon F. Adams.

Just match the Numbers (words) to the Letters (definitions). Example: 15 X, 16 Y, 17, U Be sure to post your guesses, you'll be eligible to win my monthly prize – a Smart Women Read Romance t-shirt and three romance books: too good to be true by Kristan Higgins, The Cowboy's Second Chance by Christyne Butler and To Love a Scoundrel by Kristina Cook. This blog will be your last chance to enter to win for the month, so don't be shy about matching up the words to what they mean. Oh, and, one person who does post their guesses and leaves their email address, will win a Pink Ribbon goodie bag, full of Pink Ribbon items like a pen, calendar, rubber ducky and more.

Great blog and I didn't even try to answer that quiz. I'd have had to drag out one of my dictionaries of old words and that would be cheating. Hannah

Anna Kathryn Lanier said...

LOL...ah, Hannah, you should just guess! I forgot to put in the blog when I'd draw a winner for the Pink Ribbon Goodie Bag. I'll do that on Sunday, give people time to check in and make guesses.

Good try Obe. I have no comment on how well you did....I'll post the answers on Sunday, too.

You know me...I've gotta try it:
1 = D
2 = E
3 = F
4 = J
5 = B
6 = G
7 = H
8 = I
9 = A
10 = C

I never heard of any of these, and I write historical westerns...guess I'd better invest in the Dictionary. :)
