Book Club Members: Have you started And Then There Were Nuns? That’s okay…neither have I, but there’s no time like the present (since this is a month apparently honoring presents), to begin reading Chapter 1!

Last week’s WOW (Word of the Week) was hawkshaw. The hubby actually was close on this one (How does he do that?). The Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary says that a hawkshaw is a detective. Apparently, this word originated with a detective who had the name Hawkshaw.

This week’s WOW is fard. Considering that the family just spent the past weekend playing a game named Furt, I can only imagine the comments I’m going to get from the family “peanut gallery” on this one:

fard: (färd) 1. a difficult expulsion of gas from one’s backside 2. the fat that results from consuming too much lard 3. the present tense of the word furt.

So, what’s your guess for fard? I want to hear all about it in the comment box below!
