HUGE -- it's the new AWESOME

  I have always disliked the word  'awesome'  as it is currently used  and deliberately avoid using it in my everyday rants & raves.   Recently though, I did (!).   It felt so awful spewing out of my mouth and I wished I could have taken it back,  but, no,  there it was -- out there.  Yuk.  I had called something 'awesome'  that was really just mediocre.    I broke my own record of, well,  never.  Took a perfectly good word and made it into 'groovy' or at least that was what it felt like.    Where had that come from?
 Now  'huge' is a word I feel I can get into.  It encompasses sooooo much and it has girth, which if you know me, you know I love the word 'girth' and everything it insinuates and the accompanying innuendo.  No apologies here for any  of this and the pictures should be considered merely  gratuitous like most movie sex scenes.   You know you're sitting there watching and asking yourself what does that have to do with the story?    Well, nothing, just an excuse to look at pretty things.  So please enjoy these memories from gardens past.
