Assorted Lichens

Still:

A contraption, hidden in the back hills of Arkansas, that produced a quart jar of 180 proof once given to me by a relative.

Unassailable:

Local dialect. As in, “That a’ mast on yer boat, it be broke. Keep her ashore, mate. I’d a’ say she’s unassailable.”

Tenacity:

How many there are when you evenly distribute 1000 people in 100 cities.

Determination:

What you hope to receive if your boss fires you, and later calls you into the office.

Relentless:

Not observing Lent. Again.

Untiring:

What you are doing if you get a flat, and are changing it yourself.

Indefatigable:

Unable not to be able to be dressed in military garb.

Pers-is-tent:

An extremely lame sales slogan from a guy who has this idea for a woman’s handbag that can expand into a camp shelter.

Always:

Every which way but loose.
