    I’m glad you like the blog, Mark, and I love to see people dusting off these old Vest-Pocket words and bandying them about. Thanks for reading!

    I love this word. It’s also an appropriate word for today.

    The ceiling lights in our kitchen had gone out. We had to replace one fixture and rig the other. We went from no lights to what seems like broad daylight. 🙂

    It’s SO nice to have those noctilucous ceiling lights working again! Will that work?

    Love your blog and words.
