Ten Word Challenge: perpendicular, carpentry, garage, lute player, radishes, tin roof, wild flowers, stop light, gargantuan - is it me or are there 9 words? Haha - that Raven is always fooling with us!
Siren climbed to the top of the garage, he hated that it was a tin roof, the tin made the surface hot and his claws made noise, he did not want “her” discovering he was up here. He liked the fact that she didn’t know of the wondrous gargantuan playground that lie just beyond the garage. He had discovered it the day she had the carpentry work done. The noise and chaos of the workers created a distraction and Siren was able to sneak out. Since that day he visited his wonderland as often as he could. It was a dangerous journey but he loved it. He especially enjoyed the challenge of scaling the drain pipes that were perpendicular to the back wall, the huge joint of piping at the top was like his own stop light, it signaled the last leg of his trip. One soft jump over and down and he’d be in his secret garden. He would dig up rows and rows of lettuce and radishes. He would roll around in masses of wild flowers, he enjoyed the scent that was released as he crushed their petals. Then he’d take a quick nap in the shade of the massive garden sculpture. He thought it was a fiddler wearing a funny hat but he had learned it was a lute player the day he overheard Mrs. Cannery shouting “that damn cat is back, look what he did this time! – hurry! hurry! he’s asleep by the lute player”. Ah that had been an exciting trip back home.
Mini Challenge: gravy boat, cat carrier, Madison, Wisconsin, March Hare, gratitude
Mia sighed with gratitude. The trip home to Madison, Wisconsin had been long and strange. Her cat carrier was too small; it was like sleeping in a gravy boat. She was so relieved to be back in familiar, comfy surroundings, if she had spent one more moment on the road she would have gone as mad as a March Hare.
And the mega …
Max and Sally set out Sunday morning to explore their new city. Max had been transferred to the Madison, Wisconsin office of March Hare Haberdasheries and while he felt nothing but gratitude for still having a job he was worried that Sally was unhappy with the move. They decided that morning that the beautiful spring weather indicated that it was a perfect time to hit some garage sales; they would be able to find affordable treasures for the house and see the city at the same time. Max hoped that Sally would discover things about Madison to appreciate while finding things to turn their little old house into a home. Max had already built most of their furnishings, he was a carpentry genius but Sally had wonderfully whimsical taste and Max always looked forward to seeing things in a new way through her eyes.
Sally held the directions in her lap. The top of the flyer proclaimed ‘Tin Roof Flea Market’ – it was advertised as a gargantuan garage sale, yard sale, crafts fair and antiques show. The directions made Max nervous, they weren’t very clear but Sally was so excited he knew they must find the place. “We need to turn right at the next stop light” Sally told him as Max wondered if their old jalopy would make it up the hill, he couldn’t believe Sally didn’t notice that the car was virtually perpendicular to the horizon as it chugged away. “What do we do after we turn?” Max mumbled. Sally laughed. “I guess we’re here, look at the crowds. Is that a lute player? and a plate spinner? and a mime? Oh how perfect! Madison has annoying street mimes just like home!” “Let’s park at the far end, I want to see everything!” Max smiled at Sally’s joy and the car’s relief as they parked near the Green Market section. “We’ll get lettuce and radishes and all sorts of fresh goodies right before we leave” Sally said. “I’ll make a wonderful first dinner”.
They wandered the grounds for hours. Sally bought silverware and plates and an odd shaped gravy boat. “I’ll put wild flowers in it” she told Max, “it’s too pretty for gravy”. She bought linens and curtains and a telephone shaped like a daisy. Their arms were full and they were happily exhausted as they headed back toward the Green Market and the car. Sally stopped at a stand full of baskets. She threw all her stuff into Max’s arms and picked up a giant wicker basket – it had double handles and a cover. “Wouldn’t this make a great cat carrier?” she asked Max. He was about to ask why they would need a cat carrier when he saw the little sign next to the basket stand – “Rescued Kittens for Adoption”. Sally held up the two kittens left and asked “which one?” Max laughed and said “both”. After all the new house was big enough for a happy family of four.
And there ya have it! Wordzzle on my lovelies!
