Can't Play Without Scrabble Music

I came home from work to a vase of new wildflowers from our  front yard.  These things are not giving up!

Thank you, Gary

This will probably be it though. 
 I know...  I said that last week.

And they just keep on coming...

But this time I'm seeing more signs of everything dying off.  When we took Gracie for her walk, we walked around front to take a look...

Bees are dying on the waning flowers...

It's breezy... and there's a chill in the air.

"Do you want to play Scrabble?" Gary asks.

One of the first fights we ever had was playing online Scrabble with 550 miles between us. 

 He was cheating.  I swore I'd never play Scrabble with him again.  But time heals all, and I finally bit the bullet and forgave him.  He hasn't cheated since.  

Can't play without the Scrabble music.

I should have known it wasn't going to be a good game for me.

Gracie wanted to know, "What about me?"  

"Gracie, it's always all about you.  Just take a nap."

I held on for a while... 

But the hubby won in the end.  It was a bad board.  I had nasty letters.  And yes, I have a lot of excuses.  

I lost, I had to put everything away.  

So how was your day?


  1. Well, now, that is romantic!

    Poor Gracie, left to her own devices while you had all the fun!

  2. Your flower arrangement is lovely! That is the exact same cosmos that I have on my blog today!!! We love Scrabble, have you ever used all the letters at once? There's a new computer version out now, have you seen it on T.V? Well, you don't play it on computer, it's a little electronic game, I think it runs on batteries. O.K., so what IS your scrabble music? Is it a mix? Let me guess, "Words" by the Bee Gees!! "It's only words, but words are all I have to take your heart away".

  3. beautiful colorful flowers!! I love Scrabble! you are right, it is really the luck of the draw with the letters and if there is a good starting word; if it is a short starting word, not much to build.

    never played Online Scrabble, that could be fun!


  4. Ginny, our Scrabble music is from a Contemporary Christian sample CD with various artists. We've listened to that CD for almost ten years now, every time we play Scrabble. It's called "BEAT" and it has some awesome songs on that I had never heard before I heard them on there. But what a great guess in guessing 'Words' by the Bee Gees. ((Applause)) Good job, Ginny!!

A Note From Gracie

Hey All, Mom and dad are getting the pool ready and you know what that means.  Splashing kids and wet dogs.  Not a fan of either one.  Bu...
