It’s the last day of August! And as seems to be consistent with Los Angeles weather during the month, it rained today. As you know from my woodworking projects, I pay more attention to what’s put out on the street toward the end of a month because that’s when people move out and get rid of furniture. So they leave furniture out by the curb, and then it rains, and everything is damaged and I get nothing because I prefer not to pick up warped furniture.
Yesterday I missed both pangrams, ANNIHILATION and INHALATION, AIOLI (as usual), ALTO, ANON, ANTI, HALAL, INHALANT, INITIAL, INITIATION, IOTA, LANAI, LANOLIN, NATAL, TAHINI, TALI, TANNIN, and TITILLATION.
HATHA: YOGA! A yoga system of physical exercises and breathing control.
LANTANA: A tropical evergreen shrub of the verbena family, several kinds of which are cultivated as ornamentals. I never can remember this word. I always wonder what the thing is that is like ALANTA but isn’t. No amount of wracking my brains is enough.
NATANT: Swimming or floating.
