Meatier Misses

HABOOB: A violent and oppressive wind blowing in summer, especially in Sudan, bringing sand from the desert.
TROTH: Faith or loyalty when pledged in a solemn agreement or undertaking.

From the Online Etymological Dictionary:

troth (n.)

“truth, verity,” late 12c., from a phonetic variant of Old English treowð “faithfulness, veracity, truth;” see truth, which is a doublet of this word. Restricted to Midlands and Northern England dialect after 16c., and to certain archaic phrases (such as plight one’s troth). Also see betroth.

Day two in a row of missing something to do with engagement. Oh noes.

About raabidfun

I'm a guy living the #raabidfun lifestyle. I figured I would create a blog about crossword puzzles I do. The idea is to do the NYT crossword and the WSJ crossword daily as much as I can. That includes when I don't finish and have clearly failed. They can be difficult. Also I am not an attorney, and any legal analysis in this blog reflects my interpretation, which means it can be flawed and should not be relied upon for use in legal matters (especially against me).
