This is week 50 (can you believe it?) of the Saturday Wordzzle challenge. Anyone new to the process can refer back here to find out how it works. I hope you all enjoyed my goofy idea of using your blog names or special things about those who are our most regular posters as this week's words. Seemed like a good idea at the time I did it.
The words for this week's ten word challenge were: 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 Mini Challenge: shortening the distance, it’s all about bloggers, the Fortress at Pigeon Falls, finding Pam, a raven’s nest
Here's my ten-word offering for this week:
Do you see what I see? Me, Rebecca Gargola Remmington, living the good life in beautiful
And here's my mini challenge:
Imagine finding Pam – who I hadn’t seen in about 20 years - at the Fortress at Pigeon Falls of all places. I mean I didn’t think any body much had ever even heard of
And for the mega challenge:
Shortening the distance between the town of Freemason and the Fortress at Pigeon Falls seemed to me like a bit of a wild goose chase and an absurd waste of eight million dollars, but as with all things political insanity prevails more often than not. This was one of those cases where the ubiquitous and sometimes criminal Mullaly clan (who owned both the Pacific Paradise Shopping Center and the Raven’s Nest Nursing Home) saw some kind of big profit. I think they owned much of the land on the projected route of the new highway and they were pushing it through the town council with all their might. No chance of a grandmother of five like myself getting a word in edgewise or even getting a chance to try. Finally finding Pam, my best friend, a lawyer and one of the only people who had a chance of outsmarting the Mullaly clan, I whispered to her “Do you see what I see? To which she responded, “It’s all about bloggers.” This made no sense at all to me until I realized that she had not said bloggers but LOGGERS… Suddenly it all made sense. It was a done deal. If he loggers and the Mullalys were in on this together, there was money to be made and no amount of logic would stop the destruction of 60 miles of beautiful woodlands between two places that nobody with a lick of sense cared a whit about getting to faster. But there would - it seemed inevitable now - be a Freemason/Pigeon Falls short cut. Even Pam, brilliant as she is, could not stop this one. Insanity would indeed prevail. Pristine wilderness would be destroyed for the short term profit of two families and they would con everyone in the community into thinking that they had done them a big favor. Some days life stank.
Next Week's Ten Word Challenge will be: spring fever, coyote, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, birds of a feather, broken camera, artificial flavoring, cane, garage, ask and it is given, gay
Mini Challenge: glorious, sugar and spice, premature baldness, gargoyles, campaign trail
Thanks for playing. For those who are new, here are some guidelines to make the process more fun.
Enjoy! See you next week.
