Hi Y’all!




Today’s word means “not in agreement”.  I can tell y’all I am definitely not in agreement with my Humans!  But more about that tomorrow.



Today I promised to tell you what yesterday’s word, Tantivy, means: at full gallop; headlong.


Going back to last Thursday’s post “Pabulous”

“How do you even grab hold of that ball that looks too big for your mouth! :P”

“Are you playing with a soccer ball? My sister Katie loves soccer balls. We love to stay fit and we eat a healthy diet...plenty of snacks too, but they are the healthy kind most of the time. Happy Friday!”


I love playin’ with the soccer ball.  My Humans can throw it or kick it and I block it or chase it!  It isn’t quite fully inflated so I can get a grip on it.


Next was Sepia Saturday’s post for the letter “Q”,  Quaere and Quaeritur ,

“I can remember the "quaeritur"- thingy there was something with a raised question :o)has it something to do with the Michigan State Motto too?”


Oh, you stumped me! 

However, after a little research I discovered:  The State Motto of Michigan is “Si Quaeris Peninsulam Amoenam, Circumspice” (If You Seek a Pleasant peninsula, Look About You). 



Quaeris is Latin for the second person singular present tense of quaero, which means I look for, I search for, I seek out or I inquire into. So it means "you seek out". 

So, now I’ve learned another “Q” word or two.

“Do y'all live on the lake? It is so pretty. Have a great weekend!”




It is a large creek or river, one of a number of tributaries and rivers that is part of a lake system.  The lake is sometimes referred to as an inland sea.  From our dock we can go to the inland waterway.

“What a great word that I didn't know what it meant. Snow...really??? I hope all went well at the vet for you, thinking of you. Have a nice night”


When you leave the coast and head west and start gaining elevation it is like heading north. 



Temperatures drop almost 4 degrees Fahrenheit for every 1000 feet of elevation. Our mountain house is in a different eco system from the shore house. Above our house the eco system continues to change. 




Tomorrow I’ll tell you about what and why I’m unconsentaneous.

Y’all hurry back now!



















  1. Having both a shore house and a mountain house must be wonderful. Whew this is some heavy vocabulary! (your autocorrect must be going crazy :)

  2. Oh dear Hawk wondering why you are so unconsentaneous? Love that word. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. What's that you're carrying? A giant (if you'll pardon the expression) hotdog? You wish!

  4. Hi Hawk,

  7. Thanks so much for joining the hop! Well I must admit that I did not know the state motto of Michigan. I may have known it once, but
