  6. Sorry I've been gone so long. I've missed writing with your prompts so much. Now that our eviction is complete, and things are organized, I'm freed to write once more. Hope you enjoy...

  21. Hmm came quite back in the list :)

  22. Would someone tell me what that blue object is, the prompt for the week? Am I the only one that can't tell what it is?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I rolled mine in with one shot since I was so late! thanks for the prompt!

    ReplyDelete
  24. The possibilities were endless on this one. I own that little wooden statue. Blessings!

  25. This one was tougher for me! I like the challenge though.

  26. Hi Tess. Lines out of curves for me, I'm afraid!

  27. The eight figured symbolically for me. Can't wait to read what everyone else has!

    ReplyDelete
  28. As we have in the past, we added "extra ingredients to the base stock".

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've no clue what it might be, but I will have something to say about it in a day or so...a new year and new challenge...

    ReplyDelete
  30. The enigmatic nature of the prompt brought an equally enigmatic response

    ReplyDelete
  31. My first thought was from that old Saturday Night Live skit with Steve Martin "What the hell is that?... Well, Take my picture with it!!"
    Great prompt!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Really interesting image, Tess. Thank you (just under the wire, as usual).

    ReplyDelete
  33. A very happy new year to all!!
    I really liked this prompt, Tess! Very inspiring, actually.. although I am not entirely sure if my response "fits in" with the picture.. :)

    In any case, happy reading.. while I go off to snooze a bit, and then wake up to read y'all!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is another great prompt. I found it hard to come up with words for it, because I have no idea what the object is. But I liked the challenge. And that is one very interesting object. What is it?

    ReplyDelete
  35. The old grey matter wouldn't work on this one yesterday, but today something came. Thanks again - I couldn't have done it without you!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I have just posted my very first Magpie! If I am too late I will understand. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  37. It's obvious really! (No it isn't!) Yes it is! (No it . . . oh forget it)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Image reminded me strongly of Kurt Vonnegut's eulogy of Allen Ginsberg - I'll tell you about it sometime

    ReplyDelete
  39. This one was challenging but fun. Thanks Tess.

    I have no idea what that thing is!! Haha!
    Thanks to Wanjiku for telling me about this today.

  41. I put mine up again as Cad told me that my Mr Linky Link wasn't working.! Maybe this time!

  42. I am sincerely sorry Tess Kincaid.

    I was printing some posts for a friend, who lives in the dark ages (no internet), when I realized I had been thanking you for hosting this great site, but using the name "Willow". I know you live at Willow Manor but that's not your name. I am sorry I was so rude to not pay attention, to be so thoughtless.

    I won't repeat the mistake and thanks truly for hosting Magpie Tales.

  43. Thanks, Tess, for such an enigmatic prompt;and for this place which brings such a varied bunch of wordworkers together.

  44. Myrna, no need to apologize at all! I've been known as "Willow" for nearly three years in the blog world, and only recently have posted my actual name. Since my poetry is being published, I wanted to have my real name attached.

    Please feel free to call me "Willow", since I answer to both!
