Saturday Wordzzle # 50



The idea is, every week Raven (Views From Raven's Nest) gives you between 8 and 10 words/phrases and you have to create a small but coherent paragraph using every one of them and the same with the mini challenge. You can do either, both or a megawordzzle using all the words, or even all three, it's up to you, you can post them on your blog or email them to Raven. If you join in go to Raven's and put your name on the Mr. Linky so other participants can come visit you.


No doodles this week too busy packing!



This Week's Ten Nine Word Challenge is: ubiquitous, do you see what I see, getting a word in edgewise, wild goose chase, grandmother of five, Freemasons, Pacific Paradise, everything and nothing, insanity prevails



Do you see what I see? Living in Freemasons, a Pacific Paradise, isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, especially when you’re a grandmother of five and expected to be ubiquitous. Looking after five kids, whilst their mother goes to work, means at times insanity prevails. You have to be able to talk about everything and nothing but sometimes have trouble getting a word in edgewise, and be prepared to go on a wild goose chase when one of the kids hides and you think they’re lost!


Mini Challenge: shortening the distance, it’s all about bloggers, the Fortress at Pigeon Falls, finding Pam, a raven’s nest



The weekly newsletter ‘The Fortress at Pigeon Falls’ claims it’s all about bloggers. However, this week’s front page article is all about finding Pam, the editor, a new house which will mean shortening the distance she has to travel to her favourite pub ‘A Raven’s Nest’.

Megawordzzle

Cynthia was surprised when finding Pam enter her little shop that she recognised her.

“Pam?” she enquired “is that you?”

Pam stared at Cynthia for a few minutes before she realised who she was.

“I don’t believe it, Cynthia what are you doing here at ‘The Fortress’ at Pigeon Falls?”


“I just bought it” said Cynthia “I moved here just this week!”


“Last I heard of you” said Pam “ you were launching a new perfume called ‘Pacific Paradise’ or something!”

“Come into the office Pam, we’ll have a coffee and a chat” invited Cynthia.


It had been twenty years since they’d last seen each other and they talked about everything and nothing, with so much news to catch up on they were both struggling getting a word in edgewise. Cynthia was amazed to learn that Pam was now a grandmother of five and she laughed when Pam told her that when they all turned up at her house insanity prevails.



Cynthia suggested they meet that evening at the ‘Freemasons Arms’ for a meal but Pam suggested ‘A Raven’s Nest’ in the next town to meet her friends, so they arranged to meet there at 7.30. Cynthia wasn’t sure where the restaurant was and it took her that long to find it that she thought Pam had sent her on a wild goose chase. Eventually she found it and took a seat at the bar to wait for Pam.


There seemed to be some sort of conference going on and the barman told her “it’s all about bloggers, they get together here about twice a year.” Suddenly the conference room door opened and Pam emerged

“Now's your chance to meet my blogging friends,  Cynthia.”  said Pam.


“I’m a blogger too” Cynthia told Pam


“What’s your blog called?” asked Pam


Ubiquitous” said Cynthia, “what’s yours?”


Shortening The Distance” answered Pam.


“We’ve been in touch through our blogs all this time?” they echoed each other.


“LOL, I don’t believe it” laughed Pam “do you see what I see? You turned down the invitation to the conference because you were moving house, you didn’t say you were moving to Pigeon Falls!




No Wordzzle next week as I'll be in Spain.

ubiquity is a good word - but rather a tiring concept!

Dr.John said...

Three good stories with difficult phrases but I really loved the last one. You pulled everything together and it made you feel like you were there.
Well done.

Linda said...

I suspect that insanity would prevail when one is watching five grandchildren!

Very well done as always, Ake! Hope that you and your MWM have a fantastically romantic Valentine's Day!

Raven said...

Wickedly clever as always. I love the twist in the last one.

Belated Happy Blog birthday too! Wow. Two years! Awesome!
