Wordle 468

To all our viewers you are in for a surprise this Wednesday night as we fly through the pages of the history books and return to that fateful day.

Yes folks we are bending time to catch sight of when the shift occurred and popular culture met tradition in a bone shaking crunch.

To when grass was supposedly green, when gas was the name used for fossil fuels and Jumping Jack Flash was all the rage.

So let’s travel back to the turn of last century and see that strange activity once again … folks I give you dancing.

“Agatha had that old feeling of being on the outside of life looking in.” ― M.C. Beaton, Agatha Raisin and the Potted Gardener

Rugby43 from The Bag Lady

And here’s my submission for the week:

Agatha had that old feeling of being on the outside of life looking in.  She’d moved to suburbia in the hope of fitting in and becoming an upstanding member of society but so far they had chosen to ignore her.

She knew if her husband was still alive he’d tell her to do something to get herself noticed.  Shame she’d already murdered him; that would have attracted some attention.

Agatha sighed, watching as Mr. Tom’s dog left its latest package in the middle of the park and then she smiled broadly.

Serial Killer had a nice ring to it.

42 Words #40

Hi All,

Well I’m thrilled to state that we had two people choose numbers this week and first up was Dave with number 40 and next week we’ll mosey on down to Joanne’s choice of 32 but before we have the grand reveal, lets first peruse the dark landscape of NOIR.

Jenna from Raspberry Ripples

Dave from MMA Storytime

Charles from Potatoes and the Promise of More Potatoes

Joanne from Joanne the Geek

Caramel from Learner at Love

So what did Dave chose? What theme did he select to occupy our waking hours?  Is it one that will send a shiver down our spines?  Or one that start our fingers twitching with excitment?

But you better beware for this week’s theme is …..

WEREWOLVES.

So, off we go to tread that supernatural dark path but be warned you only have 42 words, so use them carefully.

Just a quick reminder that to keep this fun challenge going we need numbers, so if you have the urge select one from the grid below.

GONE 2 3 GONE GONE 6 GONE
8 9 GONE GONE 12 13 14
15 16 GONE GONE 19 20 GONE
GONE 23 24 25 26 27 GONE
29 30 31 32 GONE 34 35
36 GONE 38 39 GONE 41 42

Here’s my take on this week’s prompt:

So, would you like your nails done as well?

My Mother used to say when challenging times were upon us, one had to diversify.  That it was the only way to survive, so when the change came upon me, I did just that.

The Werewolves Barber Shop is doing fantastically, thanks.

Margaret sighed; perhaps she’d been overly confident in their acceptance.

When it had come to her that the truth was there for all to see, that it just needed a space in which to reside she’d decided it was time to stop laying low and put this urge to rest.

Collecting the required implements, knives and glue, she’d let her creative juices flow.

She’d twisted and turned, letting the colours bled together but the next thing she knew it had all gone wrong.

Margaret, the jersey cow, glared at her owner as he wrote his name on her artwork.
