Word of the Day

Tanner (noun) – A person who tans hides

Word in a Sentence: William the Conquerer’s unwed mother was the daughter of a tanner. (Okay, I admit, I think Billy Boy was a marauding freak and his vulgar influence on Anglo-Saxon was a crime, so it does my heart good to make jabs at his less-than-glamorous heritage, of which HE was ashamed, whenever I get a chance. It’s the English degree in me.)

Your turn! Rescue the profession of tanners, if you please. ;)

Being a tanner is difficult work, very demanding, requiring also a strong stomach and a bad sense of smell, among other things.
