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.
You all rock!!

Theme Thursday for January 10, 2013 - ANTS


This weeks new theme is ANTS!
They are pesky little buggers.
And no matter how hard you try to get rid of them,
they just keep coming back.
Do you think they are nature's "Stalkers"?

These ants are crawling all over my bathtub right now.
I cannot spray bug spray,
so I am trying a natural remedy.
Honey mixed with some water and Borax.
I have dipped these cotton balls into the mixture,
placed them where the ants are congregating,
and see what happens.
They circle the cotton ball eating the mixture as fast as they can.
Then they run back to the nest and die.
And being the little cannibals that they are,
the other ants eat them and the poison kills them too.

There are only a few ants around the cotton ball right now.
Hopefully they will die faster than last time.
I also read that you can mix the Borax with jelly,
put it on stiff paper or cardboard and they eat it even faster.
Next time I will try that.

So how about you?
Are you stalked by ants?
Are they soldier ants that eat everything in their path?
Did you ever see the movie about them?
They do exist and I will tell you about them on Thursday.
And I hope you will tell me about your ANTS
when you come back to play on Thursday.

Thanks again,

Comments are greatly appreciated. 
 Mr. Linky will be added on Wednesday Evening after 9 pm PST.


  1. This is my first visit here. After a long period of sporadic blogging I'm keen to get going again. I would like to join in here if you'll have me?
    Thanks :)

    1. Hi Lisa,

      Everyone is welcome to play and we will totally have you. I think what few rules we kinda don't have are listed in the sidebar. Mostly they are rules for me and I am so good at breaking them that I would never get upset if any one else does. Mostly we just want you to have fun and really hope you do have fun each week.

      God bless.

  2. My ants go away in the winter cold, but I may have a horror poem for you anyway . . .

    1. I guess living in CA that we seem to have ants all year long here. Oh I get so scared during horror movies and am so glad I did not have to be scared.

      Thanks for sharing this with this weeks Theme Thursday. Hope you weekend is going great and is quiet.

      God bless.

  3. I love this idea and would love to join in! I cannot believe how apt the theme of 'ants' is because I am currently at war with them here at home myself! hehehe :)

  4. :) i had to smile - a fitting theme - that made my last week's thursday thirteen post - how to get rid of ants.. i tried a few (trying to avoid the spray in the kitchen) and they seem to work but these bugs are smart and find another way..:) my last week's ant related post -

  5. Hi, this is my first visit to this site!
    Im from Sweden and call myself nature photographer i the south of Sweden in a place called Österlen! Which is the eastern southern part of Skåne.
    It's been a long time since I wrote in english, thats why the words aint correct. But I hope you will understand me, after all!


  6. Hi Everyone,

    Well I did something new and just thought I would re-link up the late comers from last weeks postings so everyone can possibly visit. I just thought it would be nice to do this. Plus, if they want to repost something for this weeks new prompt, they can do that too. I will be by to visit, having internet linking problems, seeing double for some reason and still trying to get rid of these dang flu's. I seem to have the same one or get a new one as soon as I am over the other one. They said on the news that this is going to be a bad flu season and I think I thought "DUH" to myself. Such is life.

    God bless.

  7. Little late for posting..anyways How was your Thursday friends?

  8. Well, will you look at TT, still going strong! I will be joining in next week. Cheers, Mrsupole!

  9. I planned horror, but it turned into hokey. I hope you can sing it through to the end. Have a great week.

  10. Oh I do hope your ants leave soon. What a great solution for eradication.

  11. It is a nice composition, I like those ants. Very good photo. Your comments are full of creativity and imagination, thank you very much.
