Happy writing my friends!
thanks Miss Tess! this photo brings me fun thought... silliness! have a great week ahead bloggers and friends!JJRod'z
thankyou for this post. I had spent the early afternoon in the summerhouse reading up on the weekend papers after the departure of my beloved family. the article that took my eye was on this very subject of dinner parties and how we cope with them. It was very funny and instructive!
Beautiful picture, but I just couldn't be serious today! :o) Thanks Tess!
Beautiful picture ... really inspiring :-)
Nothing like a dinner partyto lift the spiritsand provide blood flow to the organs
Six is a lucky number. Great prompt, Tess.
That is me at the far right of the frame in a story I call Caught Up. Thanks for the prompt.
hah! a lot of us are being silly! Thanks Tess- have a great week!
had a bit of fun myself...off to work...will return comment in a bit...
Had a lot of fun myself with this one. Thanks for the prompt.
I had fun with this one!
love singer sergeant!!!
Enjoy your lunch- I'll be back to visit ASAP. Thanks Tess.
Seeing this portrait of Agnes, with Arthur lurking on the right, reminded me of those many awkward dinner parties I attended at their home in Newport.
I like this one and am going to try to get something done tomorrow...=)
Nice pic. Mine's done :)
Very good choice,Tess! A depressing look is very good provocation. We can go to town in our verses!Hank
This week's prompt did inspire some silliness. I guess it was catching. Had too much fun with it!
Hi Tess - a fun prompt, beautiful painting. I love Sargent and don't really look at him enough. k.
Thanks for the beautiful painting...
Dinner time again? :)
An awakening from a slumbering soul is my offering to to this lovely prompt.
Oh, my. I'm morified. I must check my glasses. I could have swore the painting was called Drummer!!! something. So that is why I rambled the way I did. Most people are too young to know what a "drummer" is. I promise I will pay more attention next time. I looked and looked at this picture with Drummer in my mind!!!At least I know there will be no other like this one.Thanks for the fun.
So okay, you posted another irresistible painting and I followed it right here like a mouse with the Pied Piper and put down a few words that it said to me so I could escape over the hill.. I'll be back later to explore the width and span of all the poetic takes on the subject. Thank you, Magpie&Tess.
I enjoy this so much...I did another with the right theme.
Well, huzzah! I made it in today. I like this painting, and my post is up. Woot!
We have an opportunity to show our interest in poetry at the NPR Poetry Games. Read the poems and vote.
Another awesome prompt!
A chance for the ladies to put on their glad rags... :)
Okay I'm finally in! Thanks everybody!
Inspiring image... am "Drinking up" with this one!
Interesting prompt..... Nice one
Thanks for the inspiration Tess
I cannot believe where I went with this!
I am having great difficulty this week accessing Magpie sites and I have no idea why. Yesterday the side bar would not move for Kathe, Hank, JJ, or Kay and today the same problem at Willow Manor and Bee's Blog. Is it my computer or something else? I will keep posting sites I cannot access. Sorry, people. =(
No problems on this end, Linda. Sorry about that.
huh...not having any of those issues on my end either linda and i have visited all of those...
I couldn't resist this one.
love this painting, but oh where the pictures take one...
Hello Tess! I do hate posting so late, but I really wanted to work with this photo! Time during the summer seems to vanish before the day begins at times! Now to catch up! I hope your week is going well!
Tess -- glad to deposit one, again, here, at The Mag (a place of excellence!)

I haven't posted in months... It feels good to be back! Great prompt.
I guess the linkies close after a while...came across this image prompt via Margo Roby's "Friday Freeforall" round-up of prompts. Sorry to have missed the deadline. I'll link my response to my name here, should anyone stumble across this comment.
