OK, Ruth, I think you've refrained from giving us Joanie's surname because Rachel has told you that she's worried about cybersecirty. And I've figured out that "bat" means "daughter." What language?

Why can't your grandchild call your mother GREAT-GRANDMOTHER, as Mayblossom and Grenville call me?

Well, I'm open to suggestion here, Tiddles. Find a better term if you can Anyway, "boobba" has a sound which suggests the bustle and the homey-ness and the intimacy of a grandmother's relationship with her grandchild. I think

Yeah, you're right. We need a term for that. "Meta" means "change" or beyond:" So "meta-onomatopoeic" will do the job, although it sounds clumsy

There isn't, you're dead right there. But there ought to be. Onomatopoeia: when a word sounds like what it means, eg, shriek, cuckoo. But what about the sort of word that doesn't quite sound like what it is, but which suggests by its sound the emotions that are aroused by, or surround, or are required to cope with, a thing?

Another Sunday on t'ward. Usually a very dreary day, but today was lovely. A lot of snow fell, so we all had a beautiful sight to contemplate, as the window of our living area is so wide. Additionally, we are noticing already that the days are getting longer. Not surprising, as the solstice was on 21st December, but very welcome anyway.
However, I hope the snow melts soon, as Mike won't be able to get the car across the valley tomorrow if the roads are icy.
