Greetings, Weekworders! I am hosting the WeekWord,
Examples of CONUNDRUM
conundrum of how an ancient people were able to build such massive structures without the benefit of today's knowledge and technology>
- … giving parents a wealth of educational options sometimes presents a familiar inner-city conundrum: What if all your choices are bad ones? —Katherine Boo,New Yorker, 9 Apr. 2001
Why is an author like a Chinaman?
Because his tale (tail) comes out of his head.

Here are conundrums of a more serious nature facing us today:
Who are we going to be?
- The Environment: Are we going to save the world or let big industry destroy it?Literally? Our children? Our grandchildren? Will we kill our progeny with our greed?
- War and Peace: Are we going to kill innocent children and people so that the war machine can prosper? How can we do something no society has ever succeeded in doing: create real peace before it's too late?
You can see by my illustration of the bloodthirsty wolf above how much faith I have in us to solve these real, serious, and maybe final problems we face. I don't have any answers, I'm sorry to say. :-(
and here are my new hand-decorated cards:
I finally got another set of the Sakura Gelly Roll Pens I ordered a while back, and since they were new to me, I was eager to try them, but since I don't have a mole, I decided to make cards. These are cards with envelopes, Strathmore Drawing cards, my first time trying them, too.
