...still home on the range...

by Cecily
I'm going to Missoula tomorrow. For a while. Then I'll come back here. Then I'll go back to Washington.

I learned a new word from my highbrow murder mysteries. The word is "hortatory". The context was Miss Silver uttering a slight hortatory cough.

According to my grandfather it comes from the same root as "exhort" and means "something to do with someone trying to convince someone else of something."

That is my own paraphrase, my grandfather generally has fewer words starting with "some" in his sentences.

Reading murder mysteries is very educational and not at all a waste of my time.

I have to go get another cookie, bye
