Here's the Definitions

What a gorgeous weekend, weather wise and other wise. I puttered and relaxed and mostly, enjoyed. Here are the definitions for last week's NL Quiz

killick- An anchor made up of an elongated stone encased in pliable sticks bound at the top and fixed in two curved cross-pieces, used in mooring nets and small boats

pinchgut- A channel or run of water.

tickle- A narrow difficult strait.

scoff and a scuff- A meal followed by a dance.

figgy duff- A boiled pudding containing raisins

toutans - A piece of bread dough fried in fat

hangashore - A man regarded as too lazy to fish


  1. I love those definitions. I would have never guessed most of them. You should give us a new word each week. It would be fun to see how we twist and mangle them!

  2. One of my famous words is "Door yard". Not a lot of people have heard of a dooryard outside of my hometown in Nova Scotia.
