There's a highchair in the kitchen of the little house where the del Mars lived before moving to town.

"I" is inured

They were raised on small, poor ranches..., brought up to hard work and privation, both rough-mannered, rough-spoken, inured to the stoic life.

"J" is john

When he was in Mexico, Jack became a john.


=comment= 2 diff words/2 diff spelllings
I was wonderin' who'd make use of the recent
clarification in the "two different words with two
different spellings" scenarios as in "lightnin' vs.
Lightning".  It's appropriate, Sandy, that U are
first with your landmark case which is now law!

"K" is keeping

"Keeping warm" is the name of the first tent scene on the DVD.  I guess that is the nicer way of putting it, but I like our BBM way better.  ;)

"L" is life

What about if you and me had
a little ranch, somewhere?
Little cow and calf operation?
It would be a sweet life.

Ennis to Alma: "If you don't want no more of my kids, I'll be happy to leave you alone."

N is new

...Jack always seemed to have new things: clothes, trucks; whereas poor Ennis had the same old stuff.

==aside== Speaking of new, here I am in Austin, TX, and bought my silly self some brand new cowboy boots.  Woo-Wee, they are cool and comfortable.

So what do they look like? (I'm betting you come home with a cowboy hat, too.)

They are simple and stylish: black with a slightly squared toe, subtle but elegant stitching.
I have to admit I saw a beautiful black Resistol (like Jack's), but I resisted!

"O" is Old

No, not that "Old Rose", she was the great storyteller in TITANIC!

Lu, I swear.... when I checked the "ABCs Answer List", I cudnt believe that "Old Rose" -- the brand of whiskey that Ennis & Jack drank -- was clear for "O".  OMG!  (It's like the equivalent of BetterMost for beans!)

In the short story, Alma Jr. is described as being quieter by nature than Francine, "a little live wire."
