Yuppie Yeomen Yabbering Yearly

ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. This fabulous meme was created and hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt who hails from Great Britain. Over time, others have joined in to help host this wonderful and informative meme. We are now in our ELEVENTH round with 'Captain Roger' at the helm! Some of the participants have been with this from the very first round; others have joined in along the way. Each week we are taken across the globe to see the varied and exciting contributions people have taken the time to discover and capture. We start with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. This week's letter is, "Y".


YERK


(image from the Boston Pain Care site)


Yerk: a sudden, or quick twist thrust or motion; a jerk. Sounds (and feels) painful!! No yerking for any of you out there, OK?


YEAR



Year: the orbital period of the Earth moving around the sun.

Having just celebrated the new year, I would be remiss to not include it here! Not to mention, that we just celebrated a Yule too.


YAUD




Yaud: an old, worn out mare. I can't testify that my image of the horses here is really a yaud, but it will have to suffice! I guess I haven't come across a yaud in the past few years.

I hope that your Yuletide celebration was just as joyous as the celebration of the new year! Isn't it hard to believe that we are about to head off in to ABC Wednesday Round 12???? One more to go and we are there.

Yaud...I sometimes feel like that...(:0)
Yerk sounds like a Scandinavian Jerk.
Love the words you come up with Paula.
Wishing you a wonderful New Year.

I didn't know the word 'yaud', but now know that I am this.
love your 'y' words, hadn't heard 'yabbering' before, nor 'yerk'!
love the way those words flow across my tongue!
a happy, peaceful new year is wished for you!

I didn't know "yerk" was the same as "jerk." Or that a "yaud" was an old mare. But I DO know to say "HAPPY NEW YEAR" to you Paula! May the best be yet to come.

If there's an award for the most unique ABC entries, I would give it to you every week Paula.

Y is for...
Happy New Year!
