A perfect word for grandkids

By Debra Dobbins

I always knew that “signal” can be used both as a noun and a verb, but today I learned it can also be used as an adjective.

In that usage, according to Webster’s, it means “not average or ordinary; remarkable; notable.”

I’ll tuck that knowledge away for my next Christmas letter when I need to describe my grandkids. (Yes, I know my inordinate pride is showing, but other grandparents will surely understand.)
