  5. Good morning!
    I’ve included your site on a page I’ve put together devoted to hops, challenges, and memes for every day of the week! The link to that page is under my header. http://acts17verse28.blogspot.com/

  22. Thank you Tess. I struggled some with this.

  23. Interesting picture. Her smile makes me think she knows something important. A piece of wisdom that he (the shadow) doesn't. She has dominance over him.

  24. Thanks, Tess. At first I felt totally dull looking at the image, then something clicked.

  25. Very unusual . . . something to grind the verbal gears.

  27. Something short due to over-exertion with the Xmassy shopping...

  33. Hmmm, I struggled, but it ended up humorous!

  34. Tricksy prompt. Settled for limerick . . again.
    (Can you help No 49, DCW, whose link brings the reader back to the Magpie blog?)

  41. Tess,

    May the season be a good one!
