Word of the day


AN 'UXORIOUS' HUSBAND


ux‧o‧ri‧ous [uhk-sawr-ee-uhs, -sohr-, uhg-zawr-, -zohr-]

–adjective
doting upon, foolishly fond of, or affectionately submissive toward one's wife.



I am going to write a short story based on the word of the day- UXORIOUS- and this painting. I invite you to join me. If you do, post it on your blog and then let me know. Great word isn't it.

My friend, bartzturkeymom, has inspired this entry.

Please tell me the name of the artist. I have a print by him, but can never remember his name! When I find out, I'm going to write it on the back of the picture so I won't have to search so hard for it next time!

I love that word! "Uxorious" It sounds exotic. First time I've heard it. I'll have to drop it into the conversation with my husband, LOL!

Can't wait to read your story on it.

Maxfield Parrish is the name of the artist I was trying to think of. Is this a painting by him?
