Well at first it had veryday things and I tried to correct it but obviously didn't. LOL Getting old is not for sissies, especially when it comes to typing.

Hmm, that is interesting. I knew a few of them. I always remember the word tintinnabulation from the Edgar Allen Poe poem The Bells. Here's the line:

To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells
From the bells, bells, bells, bells,
Bells, bells, bells-
From the jingling and the tinkling of the bells.

I knew Brannock Device and couple others, but learned some new ones, too. Fun.

Well, I guess you're right about the old age thing, Dorothy. I didn't even notice--and read it just like it should have been ;-)

Well, I knew 5 of them, but most were new. Think I'll start dropping 'over morrow' in conversation. Liked that one, and it would be fun to watch people's faces--LOL.

Yes, Poe came to mind too. I knew a few, a very few. I am suspicious that some sounded more British English than American.

LOL I knew a few. I believe my son has misophonia. I knew that word!

Never heard of any of them. My dd coined the word 'tomorning' when she was little. I think that would be a great way to say tomorrow morning.
