A word a day...from Big Dictionary

Purlieus-neighborhood or environs; a place where one may range at large; one's bounds, haunt or resort. (The word has other definitions referring back to feudal Europe). I'm reading the novels of William Faulkner this summer, which means I'm camped out with Big Dictionary at my side while I enjoy my book.

One of our home grown potatoes seemed to smile at me as it was readied for cook pot.
