WORD FOR WEDNESDAY and Portland, Oregon is the City of Roses

Romeo and Juliet knew that A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet



But words are what we use to define objects so choose wisely.

WORD FOR WEDNESDAY: Aegis

What's it mean? Boldly go where no words have gone before - come on I don't mind looking silly - you might as well play along. Take a guess. Then come back around 3:00 to see if you were right.

Ahh yes, the old aegis ploy...If I recall correctly it has to do with something that protects, like a shield or charm or spell.

Sounds Greek to me...I'll guess old. But that's just because it looks like ages.

"The pig-wrestling contest was conducted under the aegis of the local 4-H."

Kim I have no clue. But that red rose is beautiful! I have a thing for roses.

I love the guesses - thanks for playing. And Bish, you're too smart for me.

I'll try harder next week.
