1. vineyard — I see an oil painting on found wood of a group of grapes still on the woody vine & the earth is very dry.

2. root — family... the family tree rooted firmly in the earth.

3. rescue — pets. (this is a bit of the toy store manager in me) the second thing that popped in my head was Denis Leary - Rescue Me

5. divided — we fall.... I've got to put together a great team of sales people and truck crew to win this Christmas season ($10,000 here I come!)
