ABRIDGE, v.t. To shorten.
When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for
people to abridge their king, a decent respect for the opinions of
mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel
them to the separation.

Maybe that's part of my problem. I tend not to abridge myself when I should.

ABRIDGE: Is that how we get over the river and through the woods to Grandmothers house? I think so :)

I've always been intrigued with things that go on under abridge.
Trolls are my favorites. I have heard that Webster, Funk and Wagnor have been known to play under abridge. There are books about the latter, one is Webster's Under A Bridge with Dick and Harry.

eh, if you shorten a bridge it usually goes nowhere. Right?

I take it you decided to abridge this post by ignoring the comments. Probably a wise choice.

Only a roundhead ignores ignoble comments.

Cheesemeister, blogging should be therapy for the uncensored mouth.

Bless, bless, Bear.

Ayou or alawrence aWelka, Jenn.

Thom, is Nancy Pelosi your grandmother?

Not a word in my dictionary, Quilly. I'm with you there.

Certainly to improve, Ariel. You're right.


Tx, Pia. I am declaring today the quintennial day for internet abbreviations on this blog. And it is over.

Haha, Jim.

In that case, Coop, it goes into a speech.

Karen, tell zipzap, halfway across the chasm is usually far enough.

Morning, Bear.

Quilly, in my defense I had a cold and thought I answered. Thank you for bringing me back to reality.

Rounder by the day, Kraut.

I hate abridged books, especially for children. They show no respect for the author or his/her readers.
