Dinner Dictionary

Me to the kids, 'You can't play on Dave's pool table. We are afraid you would tear the green stuff. What's the green stuff called?'

Hubby, 'Felt.'

Me, 'Yeah, but there's another name for it. Anyway, you can play if you don't use a cue.'

A few seconds later, 'Baize! I think it's called baize, maybe?'

There was no dictionary at Dave's house, but later I was able to confirm that baize is the green stuff on a pool table.


  1. Hi. I just came across your blog for the first time and stopped in to introduce myself. I had a great time looking around. Your writing is fun to read! Nice to meet you,

  2. Hi, welcome, Dianne! Hope to see you here often.

  3. Well, I'd suggest you guys present Dave with a dictionary post haste-- or at least for his next b-day or Christmas gift! Can't imagine having no dictionary-- poor deprived Dave... tsk tsk...
