WWC: "D" and "Green"

Welcome back, friends! After last week's travails, I'm sure you wondered if we would ever go to print again, but here we are. Don't let anyone ever tell you miracles don't happen, because they do. As bad as it was two weeks ago, last week was so good that it made up for it and then some.

My first complaint was that I was number 218 on the wait list at the library for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Well, it just so happens that my birthday was last week. My dear, sweet wife sensed my sadness and sent the kids out for my present. I was truly surprised to unwrap that very treasure for which my soul had been longing: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, of course. That was miracle number one.

Miracle number two means that you are safer tonight than you were last night. Yesterday I killed more than 600 zombies because the newly repaired Xbox 360 had arrived! "No way!" I can hear you exclaim. All I have to say to that is "Yes way."

Add to that a wonderful birthday dinner with my family, a granddaughter who is still frickin' adorable and the fact that the ghost of Tink sent us new words for this edition of the Weekly Word Challenge, and things have been pretty peachy at the old homestead. And now, on with the show.

D (The Granddaughter visited the ducks (and geese and seagulls and pigeons and grackles) at the pond.)

Green ("It's not easy being green.")

Bonus Picture ("Cigarettes are like money in here, Grandpa.")

That's it for this week, loyal readers. We look forward to a great week of destroying zombies (that is if Granny doesn't kill the TV after another frustrating Dodger loss), eating apfelpfankuchen cheeks and enjoying the tail end of another summer. We hope you have a good week and will be back to join us for another installment of the WWC. Drive safely, and don't feed the inmates. Bye until next week.

LOL at that last picture caption!
And I am very glad to know that I can sleep safe(r) tonight.
I always associate Tink with zombies. Does this mean I should blame you for her departure from blogland?

Love the pics!

I love killing zombies! Only thing is I get very nervous. Whatever game we play (I forget the name) has these chainsaw dudes who show up and spoil all my fun!

Lovely ones this week and last week.

I messed mine up this week and accidentally did next week's words. :(
