Writer on a Horse
And a Dog

The world looks better from the back of a horse and the roads of life are easier with a good dog beside you.

Words, words some we know and some we don't

How many of you look up words when you don't know them??? Or do you just make a intelligent guess or just skip them saying to yourself... Why do they put words like this in a novel. I've done all these things, but I've decided that if I like a book... then I need to know what it's saying.
Here is the word that had me running for the dictionary this weekend.

The cemetery had been in business since the pioneer days. There were graves that had been so exposed to the elements that you could barely read the rudimentary inscriptions.

If you know what it means... great you're smarter than me. If you don't .... :)
Look it up, I had to.

I didn't have to look it up so I guess that means I'm smarter than you are. Hehehe
