  2. I can say with all honesty that I’ve never heard that word before. It’s an interesting one to stow away, so thank you for presenting it to us. I don’t think I could use it in my Viking tales, though!

    1. I guess he’ll be coming till Feb 😦
      We’re not getting a place better than the one we are already staying in. And I really really love this place, but sadly dogs are not allowed here… I hope we’ll find something better in the next 2-3 months or else I’ll have to wait much longer!

  11. Thanks for this word. So many of the place names in Michigan (where I live) are derived from Native American languages. Come to think of it, Michigan is one of them (Mishigami). 🙂
