Thank you destry :~)

Thanks zombiefighter :~)

Your welcome welshbabe. Thanks for reading my stories. Now both of us know new words :~)

I have heard of this word, it, is an extention of "luxury" lol :D

Ie; "the word luxuriate is a verb and has a Latin origin. It is taken from the word 'luxuriare' or luxuriat'. Luxuriare means 'to be luxuriant' and is obtained from 'luxuria'. Luxuria means 'luxury'.. I think you and i have the same interest here, 4vrUnique, we both enjoy learning new words! :D

Thank you my darling for sharing your post! :D
