  12. Got this one right off - the idea at least. great image, I love the green painted brick and the chimney that needs tuck-pointing - I failed to bring these elements into it - but it is there for others and I may expand on the three verses as of yet.

  28. Congratulations! Tess. I've been on vacation in Tucson and have missed my bloggy buddies. Attended the GEM Show and brought back lots of goodies to play with. Love your photo for this one. So many thoughts hit me when I saw it, but this time it was a male essence that won out. I'm looking forward to reading everyone's offerings. I've missed you guys.

  31. I actually found this Magpie very difficult. too many choices and none of them sprang to mind.

    ReplyDelete
  32. For me this is my all time favorite prompt for the past (almost) year. I have lived in so many houses just like that one. The charms of houses like this can not be beat. LOVED IT! thank you

    ReplyDelete
  33. This was an easy one for me. Based on a real person from my childhood. Great prompt.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Congratulations! Many many more

  35. My magpie was prompted by your paean to Edna dearest, finding my own feelings about Charles Bukowski related to your feelings about her. Sometimes the image itself is less prompt than your poetry.

    ReplyDelete
  36. For this one, I apologize to Mr.Schwarzenegger . . and . . . and . . . lots of other folk.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Congratulations on a year of Tales. You've created a good thing here, Willow. I still feel a bit 'new girlish' but am enjoying the adventure.

  41. Tess,

    This one was accruing over three sheets of draft. Bits and pieces that didn't cohere until now.

    It managed to discharge itself, for which I owe M.T. its prompt!

  42. And may I also offer felicitations upon the Most Glorious Aniversary of Magpie!

  50. Oh boy I have a lot of Magpie reading to do this week. Had to share a thought. Wouldn't it be great if Magpie Tales could be published or made into a book for its anniversary? I would love to have a copy of that.

    The snow is falling right now and I have to say it really is beautiful. I still hate the cold but the white stuff is gorgeous!
