Her great-grandmother had taught her the ancient rain dance. Unfortunately, she had never mentioned timing. (108)

Eudora and Zeus fought for credit. Jupiter was thankful there was no Roman rain goddess. Iris smiled and created a rainbow. (125)


This week’s word was tribute. I totally missed this one. Isn’t it good that I made it optional?

    She should’ve done the rain dance after she got home.

    Those gods and goddesses certainly did fight and squabble a lot!

    Clever takes on your photo this week!

    You did two! (Number one made me laugh the hardest!)

    It’s the timing that counts! LOL

    The ancient gods and their childish squabbles….and the first one, clever and hints at a spell at the wrong time. Enjoyable.

    Iris—that’s my MIL! Very clever!

    I guess when the dance comes upon you there’s not stopping it! LOL

    It’s a shame the rain-dancers and the gods and goddesses aren’t a little more circumspect about when and where to send the rain;-)

    Timing is almost as good as location, lol.

    Hope you have A/C back on by now, GMa.
    I love those rain dances. I wish my
    great-GMa had taught my kids one. :)
