Word for the day…feelin’ good man!


 

I found my new word for the day in the famous novels by James Herriot, which I’m thoroughly enjoying….

bonhomie (bon-uh-mee) (noun)

Meaning: frank and simple good-heartedness; a good-natured manner; friendliness; geniality.

Etymology: 1795–1805; French, equivalent to bonhomme, meaning a good-natured man
