GB recently pointed out that I hadn't blogged any words or phrases lately. If time permitted I would continue to add to my Word blog. But perhaps I should just add some here occasionally. Here is today's appropriate word -
Binky (pl. binkies)
In the Peanuts cartoon, Linus van Pelt
is rarely seen without his blanket
(informal) A stuffed animal, blanket, or toy that a small child is more attached to than any other, and often sleeps with.
A high hop that a rabbit may perform when happy.
(US, informal) A baby's dummy (pacifier) In the U.S. and a number of other countries, BINKY is a brand of pacifiers, owned by Playtex Products, Inc. (In the UK - or at least to me -Playtex only brings to mind 'the living bra' they used to advertise)
Thanks for stopping by! Would you like a cup of tea or coffee? And please, sit for a spell. If you enjoy my posts, please feel free to follow me or subscribe to my blog.

I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
