Journey


The word journey comes from journeé (old French) that means a day's travel or a day's work. In the 12th century, people used the word solely as a noun. Two centuries later, the word was also used as a verb, meaning to travel from place to place. There you go, trivia information for Jeopardy.

I'm linking my J post over to ABC Wednesday. Click here to check out the meme and J stories by other participants.

    1. No screen at all. I wonder how the trucker polished the truck so that it didn't reflect light onto approaching cars.
