Wordzzle # 40





This word challenge is from Raven's nest. The idea is to use all of the words listed in a coherent paragraph or two. You may do just the word challenge and/or the mini challenge or mega word challenge.Thanks for playing. For those who are new, here are some guidelines to make the challenge more fun.



Ten words: pipe organ, ravages of time, lottery tickets, angelic music, five x five, boxes of books, flattery will get you nowhere, yodelling, pig tails, knitting needles


My sister plays the pipe organ in pigtails and she smokes a pipe full of the sweetest smelling tobacco. Strange you say? Of course it is, but let me tell you the rest of her story. My sister is eccentric and she collects everything from boxes of books to knitting needles to Seraphim's singing angelic music. She saves every cent that she has ever earned and by today's standards she would be considered wealthy.

Recently, she won a couple of lottery tickets and not even that changed her life. Of course it took her a couple of weeks to find the tickets. Remember that she throws nothing away. She hoards things too. She is eccentric. Hanging on her living room wall is a five x five bull moose head with Mardi Gras beads around it's neck. She has occasionally been heard yodelling to the top of her lungs too! The ravages of time have not been kind to her so flattery will get you no where with her. These little quirks makes her a most special sister and I love her dearly.




Mini challenge: canary yellow, grizzly bear, out of the frying pan into the fire, simpleton, Ministry of Crazy Walk



The Ministry of Crazy walk has received rave reviews but should not be confused with the Ministry of Silly Walks by Monty Python because they are different. Mr. Simpleton walks with a canary yellow top hat and is followed by a pink grizzly bear wearing a tutu. Some make no comparison to John Cleese's interpretation. While others say that Mr. Simpleton is not up to this show and is jumping out of the frying pan into the fire.


This week's vanity wordzzle used the words: bookends, water, cardboard box, candles, carpet, mauve, silky, extrapolate, nonchalant, boisterous, absolve, cousin.

My headache prevented me from completing this one, sorry.

I think we all have a nutty relative somewhere in our family tree like this sister.

Melli said...

Oh. We share a sister! Who'da thunk it? Great stories!

Akelamalu said...

Oh the first story about a nutty sister had me in stitches! LOL

You did a great job!

Dr.John said...

A great job with really hard words. Everybody has some quirky relative and can relate to that story.

Raven said...

I love them both. Wish I had thought of using Simpleton as a name. Hah! And you caught me. Ministry of SILLY Walks is the correct name. This old brain ain't what it used to be.

That's my sister you're writing about -- which is odd since you claim she is your sister and I am certain you and I have never met. Now, the fact that Melli has a similar sister surprises me not. She and I decided long ago that we must be related.

Me too. I have relative just like your sister and she is a dear one.

Silly walks are a great tension breaker. We do them on a regular basis when things are getting too serious.

Fun reads!!!

I hate to tell you all this, but my dad was adopted, so who knows we might be related! hahahaha
