Saturday Mix – Double Take, 17 February 2018

Thanks Sarah for choosing our homophone sets this week.

They are:

hail – frozen rain
hale – robust health

Classic memory of the words “All hale Caesar” and visions of some guy dressed in Mum’s best white sheets getting soaked to the skin in the hail and rain.


Chile – South American country
chili – dried pod of red pepper
chilly – uncomfortably cool

I’ve never been to Chile, and often wondered if that’s where the chili peppers originated.
I understand that the smaller they are, the hotter.
I’ve cooked chili con carne but rely on the ground powdered variety adding kidney beans, onions, garlic, tomatoes and our rather mellow red, green and yellow peppers to the meat mix. Perfect for a chilly day!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
