I'm making some changes here. The new prompt will not be posted until Thursday morning PST with Mr. Linky. You then have all week to add your posts to Mr. Linky. This is how it was originally done. I hope you like it.


Thank you to everyone who joins in to play, and a special thank you to everyone who visits the other players each week to view their Theme Thursday posts.

Theme Thursday for May 31, 2012 - Ice cream

street art, Richmond, VA

It was 94 here today. I took my youngest son to get ice cream today when we were done mowing the yard. He did the weed eating. He's only seven but anxious to work and as a treat, I took him to get ice cream.

I scream,
you scream,
we all scream 
for ice cream.

Haha. So lets have a little fun this week/ Whats your favorite flavor? What metaphor can we use ice cream for? Maybe you need to go sample some just to get in the mood to write this week. Just so you know, mine was cake batter flavored with crushed fresh blackberries in it. Um Hm.

I will be working late today, so going ahead and adding Mr Linky. Have at it and I will catch up to you when I get home.  ~brian

Theme Thursday for May 24 - COMMUNITY

Street Art Festival, Richmond, VA
Three years ago, I was a relatively new blogger. Six months into this journey of online writing and had a handful of people that read what I was writing. Really they were leaving mercy comments for me. Ha. One of my readers stumbled upon Theme Thursday and invited me to come along with her the following week. That is one of the defining moments in my writing and blogging life.

I met some of the most amazing people, many of which are still blog friends of mine today and several of which I email on a regular basis to check in with on how life is going. Theme Thursday was were I built some pretty important relationships with people that actually cared about each other.

One of those people is Mrsupole, your regular host. Last week, she informed you that her mother had just passed away. Not an easy thing. My mother in law passed away a few years ago and it was hard for my wife and I. Still is at times.

Mrsupole asked me to step in and provide prompts for the next couple weeks and it honestly was not an easy decision to come back because I like remembering Theme Thursday for what it was. Any of these writing prompts is dependent on the people that participate---to make it something more than just something you throw a link into and try to get a couple cheap hits.

So this week, your prompt is COMMUNITY.

I will add the Linky Wednesday night at 8 pm EST. A little earlier than usual but I am on the right coast. Smiles. See you then. ~Brian

Hi everyone,
I just wanted to let you know my Mom passed away on Mother's Day.
I wrote about it "here" if you wish to read it.
During this time, I am not sure if I will be able to visit anyone.
I hope you all are able to visit each other.
I hope we are a group that cares about our fellow players.
This will really help me during my time of grief.
Thank you so much for being such a great group!!
