whoosh brumph crunchy squeak-
darn pot holes!

Learning animals with my grandson, we use a lot of onomatopoeia-using my dictionary app:
on·o·mat·o·poe·ia [on-uh-mat-uh-pee-uh, ‐mah-tuh‐]

—noun

the formation of a word, as cuckoo, meow, honk, or boom, by imitation of a sound made by or associated with its referent.

Orginal-oak lined road is beginning to show signs of pot holes!

It’s not merely that God founded and found me, but that I am now found in God, through Jesus Christ the Lord…
May the Holy Spirit guide you in all your endeavors!

    Mrs. Jim and I accompanied our school’s business class to Orlando quite a few years ago. We stayed in the “Duck Hotel”, ‘Quack, quack.’ (My sister and I both talk with the animals, some will respond if we do the emphasis and tones right.)
