NEW WORD WEDNESDAY

There won't be many words
needed to explain this one.
The word basically says it all.

Do you know what 
THESE ARE?
Well, according to my youngest 
when he was little

Those are
STUNKS!
Yes-indeedy!  That is what they are.
They STINK and they are SKUNKS
so combine those two words and 
you have 

STUNKS!

You will remember this is the daddy
of little CJK who has a 
WEINESS!
You can read that here-if you missed it.

I think we should add that one to the 
new Webster's Dictionary!

You have a great Wednesday.
And PLEASE if you see 
ANY STUNKS
DO NOT- 
I repeat-
DO NOT approach them!
And if you DO- well, let's just say-
We'll know where you've been!
your photo name

I love that! Will definitely try using that one when a skunk is in my vicinity or I smell one going down the road.

Down On The Farm said...

A stunk! I love it!!! Peee-yooooooo!!!!

Jen @ The Light Laughed said...

Oh lovely, I woke up at 5 am this morning to the smell of stunks...lol in every single corner of our house. Apparently the lovelies are hanging out somewhere near by, and they like to spray each morning. With the heat every single window was opened...Eau de plonk of stunk around here, hold your nose...

Simply LKJ said...

ROFL!! Makes perfect scents ;-)

LV said...

When I was younger and lived in the backwoods, saw plenty. Now, mostly see on the freeway, but they still make your car stink.

Dewena said...

The words that our children and grandchildren invent are the best words of all! And Stunks makes perfect sense even if spellcheck doesn't approve!

Susan Freeman said...

I am calling them stunks from now on. Love it!

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

Jettie said...

Stunk works for me,

Row homes and Cobblestones said...

And somehow I'm sure he still calls them that! Cute.

Kelly said...

Hey! That makes total sense to me!

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Makes sense to me too!
Blessings,
Cindy

camp and cottage living said...

So cute! I think you should consider publishing your own family dictionary, Diana.
You all have a gift for making your own unique words!

bj said...

Reminds me of "you can call me Flower if you want to...." :)

Teresa Hennes said...

Cute! And appropriate!

SpicingUpIdaho said...

Hilarious! I just love how children simplify the world! LOL! :)

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Stunks sounds just right to me! Lol! Too cute.

Nonnie said...

I think it fits! We had one of those stunky things come in our back yard a couple of months ago. I sure was glad to see him leave. He checked out the back yard pretty good and I was so relieved that Trudy wasn't outside.

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Oh, Diana, it good to have you back! It stunks when you are not around!!..Happy Wednesday..Judy

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, that is so funny, Diana. It makes sense too, but it's a tongue twister and hard to say.
Love all the delightful words from children's past.

Art and Sand said...

I don't care what they are called and if they have a great color combo, I just don't want to meet one up close and personal!

Shelia said...

Love it. Isn't it wonderful how our little ones come up with their own words? I love stunks! :)
Glad you're back.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

The Joy of Home with Martha Ellen said...

So cute!! I love it and it surely makes a lot of sense or is it scents? ♥

At Rivercrest Cottage said...

perfect word...stunk

carolann said...

My son on Fathers day told us he has a skunk in yard. He has been there year after year. Hanging around and then he disappears. I would think he mus be a pet.

He goes from fence to fence to all the homes. He has nothing to eat or disturb. I think he is a friendly one. He never skunks. He just passes under the fences. He starts July 3rd Canadian Day. He must be living somewhere in someones place. He sure startles you. I seen him coming. I diked inside the patio door. He is pretty large.

Laurie said...

LOL!!! Kids!!

Rue said...

Stunks.... That is so funny!!

I think they're cute, but I don't want to be sprayed by one, that's for sure. We had a dog that chased them all the time, when I was a kid. My parents should have invested in tomato juice ;)

xo,
rue

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Cute! And makes perfect sense. My neighbors had a dog who got sprayed by a skunk once. Eeewwwww! So stinky! I think they tried bathing him in tomato juice, but it didn't seem to get rid of the smell. Lol!

Rebecca Nelson said...

Soooo cute Miss D! Gosh I've missed you so much! Big hugs~

Junkchiccottage said...

Too cute. Love this new word!!! We had two of those Stunks in the backyard the other night. Good thing Libby did not come across them or she would have been stunky for sure!!!! Have a great evening.

Rose L said...

GREAT ONE! WE ONCE HAD A WOODEN DECK THAT A FEMALE SKUNK HAD 8 BABIES UNDER! IT WAS AWFUL AND GOT HELP FROM ANIMAL RESCUE T GET THEM GONE, THEN REPLACED THE WOOD DECK WITH CONCRETE PATIO! MY SON CALLED THE SKUNKS STINKY KITTIES!

Donna said...

Makes sense to me, Diana:) Hope you are having a good day!

Stephanie said...

You're back!! Hip-Hip-Hooray! You are SOOO missed when you're away :) Stunks....too cute! And it makes perfect sense.

Shelia said...

Hi Diana! Oh, about the hat - that is so sweet of you.
Continue being a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Kim said...

Oh boy, nothing worse than stunks in the morning! AND it took me three tries to write that...my computer kept trying to correct it to stinks, skunks and stunk! Maybe we should add it to the dictionary! ;-)

Cecilia Bramhall said...

Ok, I just clicked over to see what weiness was...lol, I am rolling. That is too funny.

Chatty Crone said...

He is so smart! They are STUNKS - aren't they?

Have a Daily said...

So cute! And this post did NOT stink, stank, stunk!!
hugs,
Jann

Patricia @ Corn in my Coffee-Pot said...

I love this post!
you have me rolling over here...
my son used to stare intently at the armadillo statue on his Grampa's desk. Once when he was about 3... I asked him, What are you staring at?
he said...Look, it's a turtle-rat!
appropriately so!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

I don't think I have ever seen a "Stunk" in the wild...But, If I do I will stay clear!

ps: thank you for your always kind words, I so appreciate it. I did pay someone to mind my booth, but even at that it was so much work....We'll see what i do next year?

Leena Milligan Lanteigne said...

So cute but so stinky! My daughter and I were driving down the road early one morning and got hit smack in the face with the stinkiest skunk ever! It was so strong, it took our breath away! Never did see it on the road so It must have just bee roaming the area, blasting everything in sight! Shoooooooooooooooooooooooooooo we! That was one stinky stunk! Hugs, Leena

Annesphamily said...

LOL! So cute! My cousin has been writing about our old neighborhood and our heritage. He committed to 30 days of June and has done an excellent job. I am going to try to join him during July. This reminded me of my grandfather. He had chicken and the skunks had been getting his chickens! He got sprayed once and my Auntie Annie buried his clothes in the backyard! Oh could I tell you some skunk stories. Come over when you have the time. LOL! LOL LOL! Hugs my friend, Anne

Kelley said...
