    a guessing game ...

    Post by orphaned on Fri Jan 26, 2018 9:36 am

    Half Flower


    while watching my lovely Saturday PBS lineup of British shows...

    I heard a wonderful phrase ...

            sky clad


    when the meaning was made clear soon after 

    I roared at how unlike the phrase it was ..

    delicious English delicacy


    and now one of my wee dragons is named   Sky Clad Metallica    


    any guesses as to the meaning ???

    I have absolutely no idea, but I'm guessing that it has nothing to do with the sky! Laugh

    Hmm...  hmmm


    after careful consideration 

    and finally remembering how to write invisibly  Embarrassed   ( run your cursor over the space to view )



    the answer ... 

    to the meaning of   sky clad ...    


    Naked.


    Coined in the early 1900's by practitioners of witchcraft who liked to gonakedin the open air when enacting their rituals.




    what wonderful wordsmiths they were  ...
