Stultiloquence

“Stultiloquence” – is a word i had never heard of before.  It was the topic of a photography competition I entered a few years back

I had to find a dictionary to see what it meant…Apparently it means Babble, Mindless Chatter, Silly Talk…who knew?

If you have ever heard these geese, they holler and squawk and carry on like crazy… So much for my nice quiet, lakeside walk!  These geese were starting to give me a headache…lol

I just happened to have the camera with me that day…

As soon as I found out what stultiloquence meant, I knew I had the perfect picture…it didn’t win for obvious photographical flaws, but it was fun to enter and I sill think “stultiloquence” is a fun word

“Man’s best friend” is his dog

Where does this expression comes from?

The phrase goes back to a 1870’s court case

In the 1870’s Missourian, George Graham Vest represented a farmer who claimed that his dog, Old Drum, had been killed by another man. He was suing for damages

During Vest’s closing argument he said: “The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him and the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.”

Vest won the case and 90 years later a statue of Old Drum was erected on the Johnson County Courthouse lawn

The phrase “A man’s best friend is his dog” has been said many times since

Maybe he would have made more money if he copyrighted the phrase instead of suing the guy ?

The thing I love about photographing birds,

is they are so unpredictable.

You have zero control over them

They could fly away at any given moment
