I can’t believe how fast this week has flown by! Thursday sort of snuck up on me so I’ve reached into my “walks around the neighborhood” files for this week’s Thursday Doors post.  Although, this particular neighborhood is the hilly one I stretch my legs in and a 10 minute drive from my “hood”.

I confess the beautiful brick work, and topiary caught my eye before the door did.

Writing this up my spell checker didn’t like the word “snuck”. It likes sneaked better, but I don’t say sneaked in this sense…so, I looked it up to see if I’ve been saying the past tense of sneak wrong my whole life.   Apparently, I’m not alone and a lot of people say snuck, but I’d be correct using the word sneaked.

I think I’ll just leave it as an irregular verb and say snuck, and ponder it awhile as I’m writing this in the wee hours of the morning without my brain stimulating cup-a-tea. 🙂

What do you say; sneaked, or snuck?

  1. Stunning entry. The topiary and brickwork is beautiful. I use this the word snuck and would think sneaked was incorrect. I learn something new each day 🙂

  2. such beautiful brick there on that house! Love it. Hmmm I’ve always said snuck! Sneaked sounds so weird? Love this

  3. What a beautiful house, Deborah. I love the bee-hive shaped roof, too. Funny you should mention the word snuck. I was going to use that in my blog post yesterday and it seemed I should really say sneaked but I don’t use that word, so I changed the whole sentence, lol. I think I’m going to stick with snuck. I prefer the way it sounds.

    • 🙂 Thank you so much Jean! I think I’ll continue to say snuck instead of sneaked in a lot of sentences too.

  4. It’s annoying when spellcheck tries to correct things that you already know to be perfectly fine! “Snuck” is perfectly fine in my books.

    Anyway, that’s a very impressive house. Completely understand how the brickwork etc caught your eye before the door. I wonder what the inside of the house must be like…!

    • Thank you so much! I’m glad I’m not alone saying “snuck”. 🙂

      I imagine it’s pretty nice inside too. Thanks so much for the comment!

  5. we all say snuck in my family – ha!

  6. your door is subtle and smooth and the stately brick leading up had a nice mood.
    and I say snuck ! 🙂

  7. Great door, Deborah, but maybe a bit too much brickwork overall for me. I liked it best in the first shot. As for “sneaked” or “snuck”, I’ve used both but as a grammar nazi, I prefer “sneaked.” 🙂

  8. That is a kick-ass house and I would have snuck up on it 😉

  9. Now that sure is an awful LOT of brick. Someone had a party after getting the contract to lay all of that brick for sure 🙂
    I usually say ‘snuck’ myself so you’re not alone. Language is constantly evolving regardless of the rules, and besides, usage trumps the rules until eventually the rules catch up and change.
    But I guess it’s all about personal preference: I have no problem using ‘snuck’ but I shudder every time someone uses ‘gift’ as a verb

  10. Nice entrance! I’ll say whatever comes to my mind … it probably depends on where I am and who is in front of me:)

  11. Not just the door, but the whole set-up is cool. I really Ike brickwork.

  12. This is a very nice entrance, Deborah. I, too, like the brick work. I’m glad you snuck up on this, and ye, that’s the word I use. ‘Sneaked’ sounds sneaky. ‘Snuck’ sounds more like something a superhero would do 🙂

  13. Love this entrance way too! Just gorgeous! I like snuck 😉

    • Thank you Antonia! I’m going to sneak over and see what goodie you’re sharing today! 🙂 Have a wonderful week-end!

  14. Interesting dilemma. I’m not so familiar with snuck so I’d probably use sneaked. But I’m not a native speaker, what do I know. 😀
