Look well and you shall see me....
if not the Leeds Library word of the day probably best describes me at the moment......TongueTongueTongue

The library staff find a new word every day and place it outside the library.
One of the reasons I decided to join the library.
It always makes me smile.....and of course I have to try and use it.
The golden frame today is just for me!Wink

So happy people liked my rather pretty mandriola
With special thanks to helenlinda, HobbitDave & ddolfelin for their wonderful user awards....
nice treat when I returned from hospital.

All these years I've been using that word to describe Parliamentary debate.

You look very fetching in a gold frame, Barbara.

Ha! Ha! Barbara, You do learn something everyday. Today I have learnt that the people of Leeds area are far more educational advanced than I would have believed. Around here where I live they would have just put up a sign says Fart and people would have thought it was an instruction. Blush Blush 😉 😜

Luxuriously framed super image and great fun. Getting a hint from Moira, I must say that at present I have so many occasions to use it many times every day in this country of ours, Barbara, and I think I should thank you for it with a UA.

I knew this word from my background although it was usually seen in it's plural form 'borborygmi'.
What a good idea on the part of the library although I wonder how many actually will view it, never mind pay attention.

Fabulous image

I like Ronnie's plural, Barbara - it would make a good name for a flower.

What a wonderful word, I wonder if Winnie the Pooh ever had
a borborygm in his Tumbly. SmileSmile

Hum dum de dum, hum dum de dum
I'm so rumbly in my tumbly
Time to munch an early luncheon.

HI dear
As a "real" selfie it's not very good, but that is what you must feel right now I think.
But you humour is stil great. And that's the spirit.
Although I never heard of that word (but hé I'm from the Lowlands where they use other words you too can't pronounced) we have the same feelings. Must have something to do with our ancestors I guess.
And of course you should be framed in a Golden Frame, not only today.
Take care dear, I hope you can enjoy the sunshine today as we can
The Ladies wants sunshine all over their body but I'm firm so NO just wear your bikini's and I wear my socks.

Cor, just imagine if this sign was displayed in ... well, let's just say some 'other' areas of the country ... it'd be more like "Oi bruv, I fink I got me one of them borborygm fings, innit?!"
