These new words were announced at the August meeting:  property, scenic, adorable, pretentious, doorbell.


Linda Gordon, "Ring Sting"

Not adorable or pretentious,

The deceptively simple doorbell

Looks anything except contentious,

Yet, is a sentry programmed to tell.

So, whether the property is plain,

Or scenic, or pricey, large or small,

One wishing to wrongfully attain

It will have some regrets after all. 

Chuck Webber, "House Shopping"

I rang the doorbell of the house on the ridgetop.  The real estate agent wore a pretentious Versace dress and Prada shoes but invited us in anyway.  "This property has a wonderfully scenic view overlooking the eastern valley.  It is a perfect setting for you and your two adorable children."

Carolyn Dycus, "Puppy Dog Tales and Other Nonsense"

  When will scenic gardens return to Abilene?

Will property values continue rising

             If hot sun rules the sky?

Perhaps pretentious efforts in our civic scene,

             makes our drouth not so gold

             with adorable statues of fairytale mold?

Hells bells and puppy dog tales!

             Maybe it's time to ring God's doorbell!
