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 June 28, 2012 - Beds


Picture from Sleep Number Beds (my dream bed, sigh)

This weeks new theme is BEDS!

Yup, it is "beds",
and you might be thinking that I am crazy
for choosing beds as this weeks theme
I do try to find a theme that can have
many different meanings and
I had no idea that there were lots
of types of beds.

The first thought that came to my mind was
the bed upon which I sleep,
and the garden bed of which I weed.
Then I thought of a bed of rocks,
and a few more types of beds.

So I looked it up and came upon this site.
There are definitely more "beds" than I knew about.
And I discovered there are quotes about beds
from famous people.

Did you know that we even put our computers to "bed"?
Although today I want to put mine in the dumpster
because it keeps freezing up for some reason
which is why my posting is this evening instead of earlier.

I hope you all find something interesting about "beds"
and come back on Thursday to share.

And many thanks to those of you who are participating
in each weeks Theme Thursday
as a community of bloggers,
who also take the time to visit
and comment on each others postings.

Thanks again,

Comments are greatly appreciated.

Mr. Linky will be added on Wednesday Evening after 9pm PST.

Theme Thursday for June 21, 2012 - A New Beginning

A New Beginning

This weeks new theme is "A New Beginning".

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to let you know how much I have missed it here.
I also wanted to say thank you for your patience
during this time of my life,
it was greatly appreciated.
You are such a fantastic group
as Brian said, "A great community of talented bloggers."

I know that you have been in good hands,
and well taken care of,
for which I am very thankful.
We were very blessed to have Brian help us out,
and I send many "thanks you's" to him.

With the loss of my Mom it seems like everything has changed
in my life.
So many tears and the hardest thing is not being
able to talk everyday on the phone with her.
So call your Mom and Dad when you can,
because when you cannot you will miss it more than you will ever know.

And now it is time for a new beginning,
because our life lives on.
Enjoy every minute,
take the time to stop and smell the roses,
hold the hand of loved ones,
give a big smile to everyone,
and hug those you love.
Live each moment full of love because it may be your last.
But also know that every moment is a new beginning,
we are thankful for each one.

Please come back on Thursday and
share with us one of your
new beginnings.

thanks for playing so well with Brian,
he did a fantabulous job.

Thanks again,

Please leave a comment to share your thoughts
with your fellow TT players.

Mr. Linky will be added on Wednesday Evening after 9pm PST.

Theme Thursday for June 10, 2012 - All good things....

Mosaic bench top, Bristol, VA

...must come to an end? No, not Theme Thursday, just my month of filling in for Mrsupole. I appreciated the opportunity to return to my old stomping grounds for a bit. And I appreciate all of you that participated and particularly the handful that actually was out there visiting and commenting.

This weeks theme is : All Good Things...

Take it how you will. Maybe you can thing on the things for which you are grateful. For me that would be family. Yesterday was my sons final baseball game of the season. It has been a test of endurance this year because he was on a team that really struggled.

After the game we had a cook out at a farm and got to do some horseback riding. I was sitting atop the horse and looked out over the yard where all the boys were just playing and having fun and to me that was a very good thing---that competition and skill levels did not get in the way of them just being together and enjoying the ride.

In the end they were just boys playing.

As always we are open to poetry,story, music, art, photography...whatever you would like to use to interpret the theme

Thanks for letting me share the road with you for just a bit and i wish you all the best...and all good things. ~Brian

Theme Thursday for June 7, 2012 - Full Circle

Bedford, VA
Whew, thought I was going to have to start sending up smoke signals to get there theme out to you. Haha. Got to love the foibles of modern technology sometimes, but I made it.

This week we are going full circle. Maybe something that has made its way back into our culture, perhaps a prodigal return, or just you pondering the round-ness of an orange that hanging heavy on the tree. Maybe even just you having a 'ball' this summer.

Whatever it is come full circle with us on Thursday - be it poetry, short story, pictures, art work---we try to keep it fairly open here.

Thanks to those out there visiting as well. The future of Theme Thursday rests solely on the participants.

I did get an email from Mrsupole last night and she is doing better. Continue to keep her in your thoughts.
