Raven challenge 63

Today I face another Raven's Challenge.
Ten Word Challenge will be: Green goddess, shampoo, filibuster, please and thank you, Operation Marigold, throw pillows, up the creek without a paddle, spandex, ubiquitous, wedding ring,

Mini Challenge: Skittles, lamb chops, stingray, chagrin, clever devil

Mega Challenge
Even though she was a green goddess, and said please and thank you, she had a person threatening her life. This last attempt left her up the creek without a paddle. The doctors had found a way to reverse the effect of the poison from the bubble gum. Jennifer after a month of therapy was able to go home. The ubiquitous killer was not caught.
Propped up with the throw pillows, Jennifer along with Martin Flask and Mr Lemer launched Operation Marigold, pretty but with an odor. They would get Gary Stoner and she could think about wearing spandex and getting a wedding ring. Around the house, over entrances, were buckets of shampoo disguised behind fake flowers. When a wire was tripped the shampoo would flow over the head of the interloper causing a reaction, and bringing him to their attention. They set up surveillance around the clock, and consuming bags of skittles.
Not everyone was in accordance with the plan. The police were very skeptical, but Martin did a filibuster at police headquarters. The police added manned unmarked cars in the neighborhood. Gary Stoner although thinking himself as a clever devil got stung as if by a stingray. Much to his chagrin he was caught. No more lamb chops for him.

Mini Challenge

There was no doubt in Sandra Shores mind that her invisible penguin was a clever devil. A new adventure she knew was awaiting her at the aquarium, where it led her. A Large crowd stood in line waiting for the doors to open. Skittles was the candy of choice for the mothers with toddlers.
The stingray was a popular exhibit, although there were cries heard from the very young, who were frightened when it swam towards them.
Why was she here? She walked along looking at the exhibits and the many species of fish. The variety of colors and types was so amazing. Then she saw her penguin swimming along side of the large window. Being in the water was a more likely place to be than in all the other places she had seen it.
Then she saw the bear, the one that tried to attack her at the fire scene. It came in swimming behind the penguin and she was afraid that the penguin had not seen the bear. It must have seen the bear and was prepared for it to be there, because the penguin threw the bear a lamb chop attracting him along a path that the penguin had in mind. Lamb chops bones fell to the bottom and they were visible to the tourist, who in curiosity asked the guide about them. The guide stumbled in trying to explain lamb chops in the tank , and what fish would be eating them. Much to Sandy's chagrin the guide fumbled an explanation, which no one was understanding or believing. The next thing the crowd saw was a large cage tumble to the bottom of the tank with an open door and a lamb chop inside. Suddenly the door closed and the chop was eaten. Sandy was the only one who saw the bear go into the cage. All saw the cage rise to the top, and it appeared to fly away.
There was much chatter about the strange events at the aquarium. Sandy felt a bit of relief that the bear was confined.

I am so glad you showed us how the bear chasing Sandy was caught. Please, also explain how Gary Stoner was caught. I'd like to know how the scene played out!

Glad you finished.

So Gary was caught by the old shampoo over the door trick, eh! WOW! Who'da thunk he'd fall for that! Amazing! I wonder if this means our friend Jen is outta deep water now...

Sandy Shore sure has an interesting life! I AM so glad that bear has been caught and confined... but something tells me this won't LAST!

Love the shampoo over the door trick! And glad that Sandy has one less invisible creature to worry about. That penguin really is a clever devil.

Richard said...

Shampoo as a Stoner catcher; loved that. I am not fan of invisible bears however. Happily the likewise invisible penguin (which is OK with me by the way) outsmarted the massive predator. Good read, thanks.

I am glad that Jennifer is safe from evil doers for now.

And Sandy, well what can I say except that trouble follows her.

Good stories.

I especially enjoyed the invisible penguin.
