...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732

As always click on the button to see the guidelines.
And don't forget to go to Raven's Nest to see all the others.

This Week's Ten Word Challenge is: Tibetan sky, symbols, won’t you come home Bill Baily, shadow figures, brain cortex, practice makes perfect, life, start of school, lavender, chow down

And for the mini: mental hospital, falling leaves, apple cider, packing crates, clues

Phrog was well aware that the treacherous dragons were planning to attack him and the Order of the Salamanders. The
had been easy to read. Phrog was not about to give the Dragons the Sacred Hall of the Order of the Salamanders. The Dragons have threatened to make Phrog Pie out of us but you know it just is not going to work, Phrog had his minions go to the store room and get the packing crates out of storage. In them were the Books of Magic which LaGi had left behind when he went on the journey to find the finest apple cider in the world. He has been gone a long time but Phrog was not worried. He put out the word and the Sorcerers of the Salamanders all gathered to prepare to do battle with the Dragons.
It seems as if every year as the season of falling leaves comes around the dragons act as if they had escaped from the mental hospital (see picture)

The Dragons lawyer, Nerstorica Snodgrass, a lovely lady, (below) recommended that the foolish Dragons get tough with us. Poor thing she needs to chow down
on some lavender souffle and remember that it is the start of school and Phrog and the Order of the Salamanders are at their most powerful right now.

After all they have been practicing on their life magic all summer and practice makes perfect. The Dragons think they are bigger but the fact is that the brain cortex of all of the Salamanders is highly developed and they have brought the shadow figures out to defend them. They did it with the magic song Won’t you come home Bill Baily and the sacred symbols which they found in the sacred cave under the Tibetan sky. The symbols of power would destroy any dragon foolish enough to come near them There was no way those foolish dragons were going to win this encounter. After all the Phrog and the Salamanders had tossed them out once and they would never win the Shrine back. Dragon pot roast is very tasty and it would be ironic if Phrog's spell made the chief dragon use his own flames to toast his subjects so that the Phrog and the Salamanders could have it on the menu for the Banquet. Dragons are very large but they are mythical beasts and can be bested by the millions of Phrogs and Salamanders world wide. (The Order is everywhere) and they will never get us to court as we have the entire Supreme Court as members of the Order.

Next Week's Ten Word Challenge will be: family, cheese cake, 20 years ago, refrigerator, laugh and the world laughs with you, bath brush, zombies, African violets, butterflies, holding hands

And for the mini: monsters in the closet, roughly, bowling, menu, Pennsylvania

Oh no! I thought the whole dragon/salamader thing had been sorted out. Can't you guys go to UN or something? I must say this piece and the pictures made me laugh out loud, excellent!

I want one badly!

Nessa said...

Phrogs and Salamanders are so powerful.

Fandango said...

Our magic is older than yours and we suspect far more powerful but in our emergency meeting this morning we are afraid of the damage all that magic and counter magic will do to humans.
We are willing to try diplomacy.

Oh dear, I'm so sorry that the war between Phrog, the Salamanders and the Dragons has started up again. I thought you had all made peace. War does make great reading, though... and I love the pictures. Still, I hope you will be able to resolve things peacefully as I'm very fond of both sides in the dispute.

Uh, oh! Looks like you and the dragons as at each other again. And making the chief dragon roast his own is a bit much. But it does make for interesting Wordzzles.
