And the story of the Paragon of Virtue goes on and on and on. We are up to installment 43! Yikes. Edging towards a finish. Every week I think maybe it will be today and every week the words drag me on in their own path.
As has become my habit (bad habit), I'm going to post Mr. Linky and next week's words awhile, but will probably do my own wordzzles tomorrow.
Sunday, :4:45 PM - Agggghhhhhh! This was an awful collection of words. Who makes these stupid lists up anyway? Oops.. It's me. Anyway, these are not very interesting, but they are finished. Lord knows how I'm going to get out of the mess I have just painted myself into. Sigh. Well, I don't have to think about it until next week. I'm off to see if there are any birds to watch.

Words for this week's 10 word challenge were: eclipse, question, essential, value, encourage, green eggs and ham, charge, wanted, cheat, wonderful And for the mini: country, treatment, concession, united, typical
Thus saying, the wizard turned to Paraphrase and asked. "When I transport the mirror, my friend, do you think you could create some subtle, natural event to distract the attention of whatever warders stand behind Lady Purist in hopes that they will not notice the arrival of our gift to their prisoner. I'm thinking of some typical event like a small rock slide or perhaps a mild earth tremor.... "A tremor perhaps," the dragon replied, "and I am thinking that it is time to return the Paragon and Painter Perfidy to our midst. While we engage in our united intrusion and distraction, the painter could use his skill to provide us a concealed entrance to the Lady's prison and perhaps come up with some treatment that would protect the lady from harm when we finally breach the space. "When this rescue is done, my dragon friends," the wizard said, bowing to each of the gathered dragons in turn, "I believe the Society of Wizards will be obliged to offer up an official Order of Concession, that Dragon-kind should be included as an Order of Wizards. You know I have long thought such a concession was due, but your actions here make impossible to deny you that right any longer. But politics later. Let us finish this task first and celebrate later. I raise the issue only as a way to express my gratitude for your presence and your collective skill and wisdom along this entire journey.
And the 10-word:
"I second and encourage that suggestion," the Paragon of Virtue chimed in, re-entering the cave with the painter in tow. "Afraid we have been eavesdropping on all of you. The is no question that the value of dragon help and dragon wisdom certainly eclipses the pitiful efforts of this Paragon. You are the most wonderful, kind and noble beings I have ever encountered and should not be cheated of recognition because of the vanity of human hubris. You have been essential to the success of every aspect of this journey. On another subject, I wanted to to offer up an idea that popped into my brain when Lady Purist mentioned Green Eggs and Ham. It occurred to me that perhaps Mr. Perfidy could paint her into the book temporarily - with her permission, of course - to protect her from harm while we charge whatever monsters await us in there. It is a work very familiar to me and I have shared my memory of the work in great detail with Mr. Perfidy and he believes he could create a world quite pleasant and enchanting for the Lady. It would protect her from harm while we do battle and in case we fail in our efforts, it would be an improvement for her from her present situation and would keep her safe until those who would come after us could accomplish her rescue. I don't know if it is a good idea, but if we can pull it off, it would take away the enemy's greatest power - their ability to harm she whom we are here to rescue. What do you think?"
Words for next week's 10-word challenge: split, verdict, light and shadow, wrestle, soft breeze, challenge, argument, teen-agers, stripes, eggs
And for the mini: combine, slice of cake, "pray, do tell," silence, layers
