A to Z Challenge 'P'

A to Z 2017 Theme: Rocks to Throw At A Hero Who Is Up A Tree!

Robin Carr, a well-published author describes a talented author as "someone who chases her hero up a tree and then throws rocks at her."

Puh-puh-please! Bear with me on this one. I Promised to Participate but 'P' has me Perplexed!

Maybe we should start with Genre.


Pioneer Trail: finding water, hot sun, bad guys, cattle rustlers, ruts in the road-lots and lots of ruts.
Plains Indians: Friendlies, not-so-friendlies,
Posse's; Good guys hunting for the bad guys, bad guys pretending to be good guys hunting down the real good guy, impulse management issues, hitting a moving target with a six-gun from a galloping horse.
Pewter Spatoons: ew! (No Google to look up how to spell spatoons, spetoons, spitoons, sputoons, spotoons?)


Puzzles: Who done it?
Package: What's in it? Where did it come from? Where did it go?
Place: Fog and Mist, Haunted House, Cabin in the Woods, Manhattan Penthouse,

Science Fiction:

Planets: colliding, blowing up, being attacked
Planetary Anomalies: Volcano, Pacific Rim Collapse, World Wide Earthquakes
Para Beam: Light of paralysis
Parenthood Lottery: You get one and you don't!


Passion: His? Hers? Unwanted? Desired but M.I.A? Gone (sad face!)?
Poem: Mysterious author? Threatening? Promising? Anonymous?
Party: Dancing? No dancing? Can't dance because of a hole in the back of your only party dress?


Phantom: Opera, Grand Ole Opry, Cabin In The Woods (beware cabins in the woods!) Corn Field
Pitchfork: Which would probably include Puddles of Plasma!
Poltergeist: Just a tad bit friendlier than Phantom!
Paizogony: Too busy fooling around to see the guy in the hockey mask sneak up on them?

Oops!  Gotta go.

Picking my granddaughter up. She is on a Plane from the East Coast coming to visit Nana!


  1. Hey Toni.
    I like reading poems by anonymous. They make me wonder:)
    Enjoy your time with your granddaughter.
    P is for Poetry, Petra and Pottery

  2. I think you handled a tricky letter very well. :-) Have fun with your granddaughter.

  3. There is no money in poetry. But to not even get credit by choosing to remain anonymous... how tragic.

  4. That last is the best. I think--I don't yet have a granddaughter.

  5. The granddaughter visiting is the best! I hope you have a great time together.


Comment Please but Play Nice!
