Some like saying ❝hunkering down❞ but we at QP like the image of dawn hunkering… From first light we hunker…😎 When do you like to hunker ❓
As requested by @tinebeest (for which 🙏): Translations to Latin & Greek quotes added in [ ] Even though Forke does actually paraphrase most quotes! Ended up mostly using TR from @PerseusDigLib from Tufts Edu with link in note eg: perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/tex…
