Saturday's Wordzzle #51

Saturday Wordzzle Challenge is hosted by Raven at
Each week she selects words for our challenge. Our aim is to use the words in a coherant paragraph. Please join in for the fun.

Ten Word Challenge: spring fever, coyote, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, birds of a feather, broken camera, artificial flavoring, cane, garage, ask and it is given.

You have heard the old adage, "Ask and it is given. Well, that is not what I ask for and I want a refund on this broken camera," said the man. I am a photographer and I take photos of wild animals, coyotes and bears for a fact! The salesman was happy to make the refund just to get this guy out of the store. "Old geezer! Who does he think he is?" This is the third camera he has broken in a month.

The man left the shop limping with a cane and grumbling to himself. He had been on a long trip to the Colorado mountains looking for bears with spring fever, if you know what I mean? While he was on the look out for these mating bears, he had sprayed the trees with artificial flavoring to entice them to come looking for food, so he could shoot a picture of the bears in their natural surroundings.

Instead, he found a gaggle of gay birds nesting inside the garage. How is that for birds of a feather? They did flock together for a little while.

The old geezer had left his camera hanging on a branch of a tree. He had forgot about the bears while shooing off the birds.

Then just as soon as he turned around, he saw the biggest, blackest, meanest bear he had ever seen coming towards him. The bear had found the camera through the scent and traced the smell to the old man. The old man ran as fast as he could, but there was no where to run. He had come to the cliff and had to jump like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Into the river he went. He survived the fall barely, but had a broken leg from the jump,. The bear had the last laugh and the last view of the old man.

The End

Mini Challenge: glorious, sugar and spice, premature baldness, gargoyles, campaign trail

Sugar and spice and everything nice does not include glorious gargoyles with premature baldness on the campaign trail.

Megga word challenge: use the ten word challenge and the mini challenge words in one story.

Granny Jack had just finished watching the movie, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid, when she decided she wanted sugar and spice and made some peppermint candy canes using artificial flavoring.

Her young grandson, Ian, came in and wanted one of the candy canes. Granny Jack said,"Ask and it is given." You know you and I are like birds of a feather. Let's go on a trek and look for a coyote. Ian will you go into the garage and fetch my old broken camera? We need to take it with us to the store to be fixed.

Young man it is a glorious day filled with a young man's fancy of spring fever you may catch yourself fawning after the next young pretty and gay young lass you see. Are you sure you want to go with old Granny on our trek? Absolutely! After our trek, would you like to go and work on the campaign trail with Granny Jack? Although, I want to prepare you, you may see many old men with premature baldness, but not to worry because they are not as frightful as the gargoyles we may see on this outing. Then we will stop and get some ice cream.

This was a real treat. Pictures and everything. The words worked so well in the first story.
The second story was the kind of thing I might do except you did it better. Remarkable.
The last story was good but not as good as the others.

Thank you Dr. John, though I can never ever write a story as good as you,but thanks a lot.

Betty, I worked really hard to find those pics. I liked the pics too. Thanks.

Raven, since I do not know how to do doodles like Akelamula, I found pics.

Dianne, I appreciate the nice comment.

Richard,the little birds are happy, as in gay, besides where else could I have used that word.
