Theme Thursday for February 4, 2016 - PINK


From Pinterest

This weeks new theme is PINK!

I think in the next week or so we will all be seeing a lot of pink.
We will see a lot of red but pink will dominate.

I am not sure why we see so much pink
during this time because I thought 
the color red meant love.
Maybe pink means almost love.

What do you know about the color pink?
Do you wear pink clothes?
I have on pink PJ's while I am writing this,
do you wear pink PJ's?

Please come back with your PINK posts.

Have fun playing Theme Thursday!

Thanks again,

Mr. Linky likes the color pink a lot!

Theme Thursday for January 28, 2016 - SLEEP


From Pinterest

This weeks new theme is SLEEP!

Do you fall asleep within a minute or two of laying
down for the night?

Do you go into a deep sleep or are you a light sleeper?
Do you wake up every few hours?
Do you snore?
Are you a mouth breather?

I suffer from insomnia and let me just say that it is a terrible
thing to have.
You will do anything to fall asleep
but sleep is an elusive thing that taunts you.

A deep sleep of 5 or 6 hours is an elusive thought to me.

But I started a few years back to take a pill to help me sleep.
It does help somewhat but 3 hours of deep sleep is the 
best it can do for me.

I have suffered with insomnia since I was a child.
I will have it all my life.
My mom had it too.

Please come back and share your thoughts about sleep.

Have fun playing!!!

Thanks again,

Mr. Linky says he sleeps until someone links in.

Theme Thursday for January 21, 2016 - FENCES


This weeks new theme is FENCES!

Fences make for good neighbors!
Fences keep your property save,
especially if you have a large dog!

Fences can keep people in,
fences can keep people out.

Fences can be blown down from fierce winds.

Fences can be made many different ways.

But there are the fences that we place
around ourselves to never let anyone inside.

We can hold people at arms length
and never open the flood gate.

What do you think about fences?

Please let us know how you feel about fences
and if you have built fences around yourself.

Thanks again,

Mr. Linky always lets anyone inside his fence.

Theme Thursday for January 14, 2016 - QUOTES


This weeks new theme is QUOTES!

Do you have a favorite quote?
Do you actually believe in any quotes?
Are there quotes running around inside your head?
Do you have little "quote" voices talking to you?
Do you have a phobia of quotes?

I think one of the most famous quotes of all time is:

"A penny saved is a penny earned!"

Watching on the news about everyone here in the U.S.
going crazy buying Powerball lottery tickets
for some reason makes me think of this quote.

Just think of all the pennies earned if everyone
took that money and saved it.
That would be a lot of money!!!
Well not for us as individuals but as a group, wow!

I have heard for years now about how someone
will spend the money if they won the Lottery
and I think about how if everyone had been putting
that money into a savings account that
they might actually have some money to spend.
It seems as if the gobment is the one who has
the money to spend, not us.

So my quote for the day is:

"Start saving all the money you can
as soon as you get a job,
or you will have a lousy retirement!"

Most of us will be dirt poor when we retire since
we have wasted money on things we did not need,
but bought into the hype that we did.

Start saving now!!
The sooner the better!

Please let us know your favorite sayings 
and how they have affected you.

Happy Theme Thursday!

Thanks again,

Mr. Linky says he saves all of his links!

Theme Thursday for January 7, 2016 - HAPPY


This weeks new theme is HAPPY!

I hope everyone had a Happy New Year Day's celebration.

Does anyone know why we have to have
a "Happy" New Years?

Why do we not just say;  
Have a nice New Year!
Have a great New Year!

I guess it is just a sign of optimism and hopefulness.

But can anyone truly be happy all the time?

Are you a happy person?

What about the people who seem to be happy all the time,
do they annoy you or do you go to your happy place?

Please be sure to link up your "Happy" post with Mr. Linky.

Also please check out the new TT rules.
Hope you like the change.

Can't wait to read them.

Thanks again,

Mr. Linky always seems happy and likes changes.

Theme Thursday for December 10, 2015 - TICKLED


This weeks new theme is TICKLED!

Do you like to be tickled?

I hate to be tickled
I mean I really do hate to be tickled!

When I was a kid, one of my teachers had
told us that it was a form of Chinese torture.
I do not know where that saying came from
but I think it works out fine to call it
a form of torture.
Mostly because it is pure torture to me.
Did I say I hate to be tickled physically?

I do have to say that I enjoy it 
when my brain is tickled.
Many things can tickle my brain
and I am just fine with that.

How do you feel about tickled?

Please come back on Thursday
and let us know.

See you then.
Thanks again,

Mr. Linky gets tickled with each link!

Theme Thursday for December 3, 2015 - NOSE


This weeks new theme is NOSE!

What kind of nose do you have?
A big one!
A little one!
Only the nose knows.

Is your nose cute as a button
a big honker?

I was wondering what we would use
to hold up our eyeglasses or sunglasses
if we had no nose. 

I think noses are one of those things we don't 
think much about until we need to use it,
but our noses are very important.
I mean how else could we be nosey!

What do you think about your nose?
What do you think about everyone else's nose?

Please come back on Thursday
and let us know.

See you then.

Thanks again,

Mr. Linky knows he has a cute nose!!

Theme Thursday for November 19, 2015 - SOUL


This weeks new theme is SOUL!

I think with what has happened this past weekend,
I am wondering if these terrorists have a soul?

Do evil people have a soul or has it already 
been taken away or given to evil?

Or does it just rot and rot inside of them
until it has all rotted away and then the evil takes over?

I just have no understanding of people who commit evil 
acts and claim their Godly beliefs make them do it.
The truth is that something evil inside of them
makes them do it.
They just try to justify it in their evil minds
that someone else makes them do it and 
they are the chosen ones.

Just sick, sick, sick evil filled soulless people can
commit these crimes.

I think most of us can not even picture in our minds
what was done.
Our souls are filled with love.
I mean you can even see the love in the souls
of many of God's creatures.

So what do you think about one's soul?
Do you think everyone has a soul?
Do you know what a soul looks or feels like?
Do you believe that evil can take over one's soul?

Please come back on Thursday
and let us know what you think about a soul!

See you then,
thanks again.

Mr. Linky says he is a soul man filled with love for all of you!

Theme Thursday for November 12, 2015 - GATE


This weeks new theme is GATE!

Gates can take one to a magical place,
or to one of unimaginable horror.

There are highly decorated gates,
very plain gates,
and every imaginable gate out there.

When we were kids we used to swing on gates,
especially the chain-link fence gates.

So how about you, do you have a favorite gate?

Where does your gate take you?

Please come back on Thursday
share your gate stories and pictures with us.

See you then,
thanks again,

Mr. Linky says he is the gate to Linkyland!

Theme Thursday for November 5, 2015 - LEFTOVERS


This weeks new theme is LEFTOVERS!

Is this how you react when you see leftovers in the fridge?

This is the time of year when we begin to have
a lot of leftovers from our meals.

I know people who never or rarely eat leftovers.
I think that is a big mistake.
Sometimes the leftovers taste better than the original meal.
I'm not sure but I think it has something to
do with the spices and flavors
being absorbed to produce awesomeness.

And leftover turkey is the best!
Oh the things you can make from it.
Yummy, yummy for my tummy!!!

How about you,
do you eat leftovers?
Do you like leftovers?
Does your family eat leftovers?
What are some of your favorite things to 
make with leftovers.

Please come back on Thursday
and let us know about you and leftovers.

See you then,
Thanks again,

Mr. Linky says he will take all the leftovers you can give him!

Theme Thursday for October 29, 2015 - SURPRISE


This weeks new theme is SURPRISE!

It has rarely happened that I am stumped while picking the theme.
Usually I have narrowed it down to 
two or three choices by Monday,
and then I pick one of them when I post.
Today I was stumped.

Then I think I could used "stumped" or "nothing",
but I just didn't feel them.
Usually I feel something about the theme I choose.

Then it hit me.
I could pick "surprise".

Surprise is a good one in that it can be
used in the literal form 
you could surprise us with your choice.

I guess this is a theme of anything "clean" goes.

Thanks for playing.


Mr. Linky loves to get surprises from all of you!

Theme Thursday for October 22, 2015 - SOUP


From Pinterest

This weeks new theme is SOUP!

It's that time of year again!!

Yup, it's soup time!

Here in Southern California, we spend a good portion
of each year with temperatures above 90 degrees
and many of those are in the triple digits.

It is pretty hard to actually want a "hot bowl" of soup.

We have actually had a fairly cool week so far.
It has been in the 80's and low 90's this week.
That means we are cool enough to think about making soup.

It is funny in that when I was growing up,
"soup" meant opening a can of Campbell's soup.
I think we had Vegetable, Chicken Noodle, Tomato,
and Bean Soup.

The Cream of "something" soups were used for cooking.

I cannot think of any other brand sold back then
in the grocery stores.
Generics did not exist.

The soup in the pic above is "Sweet Potato Soup".
It is surprisingly good.
It is a homemade soup.
I cannot remember making homemade soup
until I became an adult.
Homemade soups can be yummy and not so yummy.

So how about you,
do you make homemade soup?
Do you like soup, if so what is your favorite?
What recipes do you use for soup?

Please come back on Thursday 
and share your soup views.

Thanks again,

Mr. Linky can get into a hot soupy mess sometimes!!

Theme Thursday for October 15, 2015 - RESPECT


This weeks new theme is RESPECT!

Almost every time I hear the word respect
I start to hear a rendition of Aretha Franklin's song
in my head.
There it goes again,
I am listening to it as I write.

Does that happen to you?

I think the wee ones have no respect for my 
camera on my phone.
They just take any picture they want.
Yes, I do spoil them.
Anyway this pic was on it with what seemed like
about ten others of this same view.

I just couldn't figure out what this picture is that they took.
After enlarging them and staring at them
I finally figured out what it was.
Can you figure it out?
Enlarging it helps.

Do others have respect for your personal items?
Do you have respect for theirs?
What does respect mean to you?

Please come back on Thursday
and let us know!
See you then!

Thanks again,

Mr. Linky is still trying to figure it out and hopes you help him!
