Word For The Day, Thursday 11/14/02
The Verbivores | 11/14/02 | Mistress Bella

Posted on 11/14/2002 7:44:58 AM PST by Bella_Bru

In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of “word for the day”. Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the “word of the day”; in a sentence. The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-) Practice makes perfect.....post on....


raffish \RAF-ish\, adjective:

1. Characterized by or suggestive of flashy vulgarity, crudeness, or rowdiness; tawdry.
2. Marked by a carefree unconventionality or disreputableness; rakish.

Etymology: Raffish derives from the noun raff (chiefly used in the compound or duplicate, riffraff), meaning "people of a low reputation."

Good Morning, riffraff!

I think Miss Bellarisima partied a little too much for her 29th, and she might still be feeling the effects. LOL!

I'm afraid I have to leave you too, to get some work done.

P.S. I'm a big fan of the Vice-President's too.

I figured out why the 'puter was so slow this morning. I must have had twenty windows open. I just shut her down and brought her back up again.

Well, gas, every other week we don't know what time the doors are going to open. It could be 12:10 a.m. or 12:10 p.m. It just depends on when Bella can get to it.

She does have lovely words, though, doesn't she?

I was on a cruise where almost everyone became ill. The ship personnel said it was because of rough seas. I didn't get sick, but there was puke everywhere. I swore I would never cruise again. I just hung out in one of the bars. LOL!

My hands are dead from sandblasting walls.

I've taken a break from it all for the last two days. Just doing the regular stuff, cooking and cleaning.

Is each design different? Can't you put four layers together and then punch the holes?

i can barely get thru the 2 layers, which are the front and back of the design. i have to do them together because the holes have to match up for sewing later.

Oh, that would be right. They have to match up.

Those holers can get to you after a while. I've used them. Trying to figure out how you could jury-rig it up to make it go faster.

Maybe you do need a couple of illegal aliens. . .

there are 9 brownies, if i at least can get 9 christmas trees done, they can be working on those while i put the other moms to work punching holes in the rest of the designs. we are going to do this over several meetings. one each would be plenty, but we are taking them to the nursing home, so they have to do a few each.

Good point Slip.

Well xs, what about it ? Would it be better if your felt hole was punched harder and deeper?

Ref: Punching multiple holes in your hand-felt layers .....

(Man! Talkin' to this lady this morning is tough ... without snickerin' Or M&M's. Or a pair of Mounds in your hands...)

Anyway ....

Did you get the "row" punch shown on the other thread - or a single-hole hand punch?

Seems that you could stack 4 layers of felt (two patterns worth) on a small board and wallop the stack with a single hammer blow if you had the 4-hole punch.

Six layers (won't say "sex layers of hand-held felt" because hobby would choke up ...) probably could work too.

single hole punch, robt. and whacking it would tear the felt. i am just going to have to suffer through this, thanks for attempting to implement your engineering ingenuity though.
