The words this month are provide by Messymimismeanderings.  The words today are a fun mix of known and obsolete words.







and/or one of more of the following obsolete words

beef-witted (slow-witted; having a heavy, ox-like intellect)

fudgel (to goof off while pretending to work)

groak (to silently stare at someone while s/he's eating, in hopes of being invited to join in)

tittynope (a small quantity of something left over)


IN THE NAVY by Granny Annie

The Senior Chief Ashmore stared at this beef-witted Master Chief Willis of this once proud Navy Seal team . He couldn't help but wonder how the biscuit eater ever made the selection for the new team leader much less how he ever moved to the rank of Master Chief. He definitely had blackmail on someone higher up. This reign of the team had been efficient in the grouping of the vigorous members until Willis showed up. His treatment of the highly successful team was always filled with needless punishments. The jerk only thought of where and what his next meal would be. Master Chief Willis always grabbed most of the rations. Where did the custom of “feed the troops first” go? Ashmore managed to groak at Willis, but not really wanting to join in, just hoping for a tittynope. Senior knew this Master Chief would fudgel, as was his custom. Their next mission would be a complete failure.


Plus, here is something for Wordless Wednesday.
