Mis-spelt the word. Should be hydroplonk. Hydro - water powered. plonk - to be a plonker. Worried that he would dry out completely the hydroplonker persistently pursed for hydro power. - trueblue147, 2008-02-21: 19:43:00

Is hydroplonk related to hydroplonic? Good one! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-21: 20:39:00

I've spent most of my life in the desert (16 years in Nevada and 8 in Arizona), so where I come from, this sort of behavior is just common sense.

Jabberwocky - 2008-02-21: 09:12:00
I like the picture today James - it's closer to a cartoon

Verbotomy Verbotomy - 2008-02-21: 09:50:00
Thanks Jabberwocky. I'm having a little fun with the photos -- just to keep them light. And by the way, we're floating in great words today. Obviously everyone here is over-hydrated. ~ James

Hey Silvery, thanks for the definition! I was wondering what I was doing... So I'm glad that you have defined it. And thanks for all the creative energy which you are sharing with everyone! ~ James
