Quilly's Magic Words

It is a Quilly day. Time to take Quilly’s three words for the day and write a story.

Click on the blue highlighted words for definitions.
.ponask; stiricide; & ruricolous

The poor bird left its ruricolous life to live near the barn in order to be warm but then stiricide ended its life and it was ponasked by the farmer.

People who live a ruricolous life know enough not to ponask a bird by the barn in winter because of the danger of stiricide.

In his rush to escape from being ponasked the little dragon caused a stiricide killing the man who had chased him from his ruricolous life.

After he almost died from the stiricide Fredrick became a vegetarian and pledged to respect all ruricolous life and never again to ponask a bird.

The practical Manuel on Ruricolous Living, written in 1753, illustrated both how to ponask a bird and keep from being killed by a stiricide.

I can not promise you that if you begin to use Quilly's words there will be no stiricide from your house this winter. Quilly's words won't help you ponask a poor partridge if you insist on shooting birds. And I'm sorry to say that Quilly's words can't give you any of the benefits of ruricolous living.
But if you begin to use Quilly's words on your blog people will notice your blog.
So be brave, step up. Use Quilly's words


  1. I wouldn't know where to start with Quilly's words but you do a fantastic job.

    Have you got a new banner? I like it! :)

  2. OMG Fandango...I love these and #4 is the best. You are one clever beast I tell you :)

  3. I love best your invitations at the end to get people to write with us. Every week they make me smile. This week, I also very much appreciate the irony of your first piece, the justice of your third, and the perfection of the fourth and fifth. That's not to say that I didn't like the second one, just that all the others eclipsed it.

  4. Excellent as always. The second is my favourite today.
