NORA'S WORDS

Hannah BananaFace provided our Words For Wednesaday today.  I shared them with my sister's 12 year old granddaughter Nora and she wove this very creative story.  The words this week are:

Crocus
Fount
Shawl
Torch
Knife
Narrative 

Here is NORA'S STORY
I will start with this narrative in a garden. Lola was working on her crocus and the rest of her garden. She was redesigning it to a luau theme. It would have torches and a fire in the fire pit. There would be a party and everyone would get a shawl made out of flowers. There would also be a fount with fake lava instead of water. All she needed was a knife to cut the thick weeds and her garden would be perfect.

(My use of the words will follow later.  So proud of this grand niece.  Maybe her brother will join us too.)

Here are my Words For Wednesday in story form.


 
BAD BOYS BAD BOYS by Granny Annie

They were running through the amphitheater. As they did they knocked over the vase of crocus on the altar.. The fleeing man tripped over the baptismal fount and continued on without stopping. He was wearing a dress and had a shawl over his head but the disguise did not fool anyone. The battery in the pursuer's flashlight failed and he had to grab a torch from the aisle in order to see and stop the man with the knife. The dedicated chaser tackled the assailant. He got his man and thus endeth this narrative of an episode of COPS.

  5. Well done Nora. It is obvious you didn't fall far from the family tree and share your great aunt's creative skills.

  6. Cute stories. Fun to see such different perspectives. Funny how the knife got violent in two stories, but the girls story was not. I suppose you could cut up food with it too...
