V is for Val ~ Twofer A2Z & #SoCS

Welcome back to the final Saturday of a twofer prompt bonanza.  Time for AprilA2Z and #SoCS!  Linda says “Find a word that starts with “val” or if you’re not doing the A to Z Challenge, find a word that just has “val” in it, and use that word any way you’d like. Enjoy!  Woo to the Hoo!  Val words.  Sky is the limit.  To see the other fine features, follow this link to good times.  Rules and Ping Back

Decisions, decisions.  There are tons of good “Val” beginning words.  Truth be told my first thought was valium then Valentine but I stopped because I know nothing about valium and I am anti-cupid ya know.  Stupid Valentine’s Day.

Hmmm.  Why so harsh?  No reason, just being bratty.

How about we use Valiant as in Prince as in King Arthur knights of the round table. Then of course I think Excalibar.  In Vegas.  Closed for the duration.  I learned something new this week.  Vegas is not the Strip.  The Strip is Paradise.  Seriously, look it up.  Not me I’m streaming.  Just saying. They’re different places y’all.  And yep the mayor might not be my favorite person for what she wanted to do. But still, don’t believe everything you read at face value these days. With all the manipulation, take time for validation.

Yes, validation!  The third most excellent “val” word.  Right after valiant and value. Validation is right up my alley.  Or validation used to be right up my alley … back in the day when I was the Princess Valiant of quality audits.  I learned that before going out large with test results, validating was prudent! Before publishing crap all you media folks on both sides of the aisle, validate that what you write is true.  Is that too much to ask?

Alrighty then.  Enough pontificating.  I mean seriously Meredith Grey.  Who do I think I am?  Jilly McGillicutty, that’s who!

As always, more to come.

  2. What a fun stream – rolling right along with just enough bounce. 🙂 I like that someone else remembers Prince Valiant! Talk about validation, now that’s a great word!

    1. I saw that after … 1937. At least three of us mentioned Prince Valiant which made me curious. I think Prince Valiant was part of our Sunday comics but I would’ve skipped it in favor of Blondie or Family Circle.


      1. There are some even older ones, like “Barney Google and Snuffy Smith” and “Gasoline Alley,” both of which are over 100 years old. “Dick Tracy” started in 1931, and continues to this day, while “Blondie” is a year older. “Family Circus” is a kid, just sixty years old…
