FRIDAY FIVE: Word Association Redux

From Reverend Mother this week, who borrowed from Songbird:

Below you will find five words. Tell us the first thing you think of on reading each one. Your response might be simply another word, or it might be a sentence, a poem or a story.

1. vineyard -

the Grapes of Wrath

2. root -

canal

3. rescue -

me

4. perseverance -

Katherine Hepburn quote: "the secret of life is to endure"

5. divided -

.....and punched down and kneaded so that the bread may do it's second rise.

Short and sweet, well really more grim than sweet. That's what moving will do. I'm off again to Camarillo, praying for light traffic.

Great play, loved the photos with the word-play.

and root canal - hope I NEVER need another one....

(and, now Aretha is gonna play in my head all day - Come on, rescue me....)

Wow! the root association elicited a silent scream and I've never even had one. Now I know I don't ever, ever want one.

Mary Beth said...

why is the root canal thing on a plant? Is it a carnivorous plant?

hee hee hee

Great play ~ as always. Love the pics (and your humor) ... and especially love the quote from KH (a heroine of mine) Hope your day goes smoothly!

oh Katherine Hepburn... a classic! There used to be a restaurant that served a "katherine hepburn brownie" - a decadent and wickedly rich brownie topped with a singe perfectly ripe red raspberry. That being said my dear find yourself some rich dark chocolate today... you deserve it!

Re. Number 2: Is THAT what that is? Ugh. Ow. Eew.

Love Katherine Hepburn. A lot.

You rock.

Mother Laura said...

Great play--and congrats on being the only person I have read so far to come up with a positive association for "divide". I love baking bread but hardly do it any more....

Hang in there with your Mom's transition!
