WWC #82: “R” and ANGRY


More than a day late and a dollar short, here is what I’ve got for the Weekly Words Challenge with “R” (things that begin with the letter R) and angry:


I was too busy to post on Tuesday because I was hanging out with 2 busloads of 3rd graders, assorted teachers & parent chaperones, and a Ranger.


It was probably a Regulation for these markers to be placed along the trail.


Looking down at the mouth of Antietam Creek where it meets the Potomac River. Historians say this body of water ran Red with the blood of Civil War soldiers after the battle of Antietam (or Sharpsburg, if you are a true Southerner). There were nearly 23,000 casualties in that single day battle; over 3,650 soldiers died and another 17,000+ were wounded.


SnakeMaster wanted to sleep outside on Tuesday night, even though I warned him about a possible thunderstorm and showers expected off and on for the next few days. Sure enough, he woke up at 6 AM Wednesday morning with Rain on his face. He left his tent and got ready for school. It wasn’t until after school that I realized he had left all of his bedding in the tent… 2 cushions, 2 pillows, and 4 blankets. I wasn’t angry, but everything was soaking wet.


The words for next week are:

Sheesh! Angry was such a difficult word for me that I didn’t even provide a picture (hence the dollar short comment above) — and now Tink wants bokeh! That will certainly stretch my photography skills.

  1. You did a fine job. I quite like the kidlet tent outside on the rainy deck, despite the soggy items inside.

  2. I chuckled on the wet bedding — God knows what we put my Mom through — we did the same backyard camping

  3. Wonderful job, the tent on the deck in the rain in priceless! He probably figured they were wet already…why move them?

  4. Oh, your poor son, camping in the rain! Poor you cleaning the bedding.
    Looks like a fabulous field trip. You live in the middle of a lot of American history, don’t you?

  5. i LOVE the ranger what a great field trip! you are a more patient parent then i!

  6. You don’t have to do both words ya know. 😉

    I love that SnakeMaster wanted to sleep outside, come rain or shine. I’m not sure I would have been so brave. Especially if I couldn’t sleep the day away inside after if it didn’t work out. Hehe.

  7. Nicely done. That USGS marker was pretty cool. I’m glad you were not angry. 🙂

  8. Fabulously executed! 🙂 Sorry I’m late.

  9. Just catching up! Love that he slept outside in the rain!
