“Cousened” is an obsolete version of “cozened,” so the conjurer is himself tricked. From Poets’ Wit and Humor by W. H. Wills and illustrated by Charles Bennett and George H. Thomas, 1860.

On the leafpeep trip today, I saw a number of “democrats for trump” signs and it was the least connected to party stuff I’d ever seen. I will not link to the site,as it is just a data harvest point and wouldn’t give them the clicks.
If you call yourself a democrat… how the devil could you support that guy? Just goes to show you, there are dumbasses and people full of crap on all sides of this race.
Assuming that is a legit group and not just a complete bowl of bologna…. what would cause someone to go over in that way?
I was curious and found this link https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.forbes.com/sites/andrewsolender/2020/09/18/these-are-the-top-democrats-who-have-endorsed-trumps-reelection/amp/
From the signs –
“Coastal elitists and left-wing radicals have taken over the Democrat Party and are dictating everything from a sham impeachment process to the outright embrace of socialism. While lifelong Democrats no longer recognize the Democratic Party and feel forgotten by their party, President Trump has been keeping his promises to fight for ALL Americans.”
OK. To hell with trump, and that laughable noise.. If you agree with the quote above, please help me understand why I would, or should associate with you?
A little drive for leaf peeping caused us to find the cutest use of columns for Halloween decorations that I have seen this season! #tootsierollpopghosts #boo #cementspectres https://instagr.am/p/CGtKWI2AyKe/

One more big honking spider seen on the deck when I was taking out the trash. I first thought it was a frog until my forebrain counted the legs and saw the furry body.
