Here’s Becky’s Answer…

I remember being 5 years old and chasing the dog around the house. I jammed my knee into a nail sticking out of the wall, and I had to get stitches. I remember blood staining my sock, and that’s about it.. I must have blocked out the stitches part because it hurt so much! :( I also remember being little and a relative couldn’t come to my birthday party, and I commented that I didn’t want her there because she was fat; my mom really chewed me out. I learned about tact that day. I still feel bad. :( Thank you so much for offering this giveaway!

Valorie, you also have the option of chosing next week’s Thursday’s Thoughts QUESTION OF THE WEEK!  However, if you elect to choose the question, I will need it by Friday of this week.

And, the piece d’ resistance is that you are now on the official Thursday’s Thoughts BLOGROLL…. (thrillin’, ain’t it?)

Congrats, Valorie.. you deserve it!

Congratulations to Christine R.

Her question was:

I would ask Andy Gibb why didn’t he talk to someone about whatever was bothering him instead of turning to drugs.

Christine, you get the option… if you’re up for it… of choosing next week’s Thursday’s Thoughts question.  I’d love it if you’d like to submit one.

For the rest of you… WOW!  This was Thursday’s Thoughts best contest ever!  It seems that there are several marriage proposals, date requests, and Marilyn Monroe death inquiries.    I’ll be posting a recap of the popularity of the stars in an upcoming post on A Novel Menagerie.  Thank you so much for your entries!

We Have A Winner… Ti, it’s You!

Most of you already know Ti at Book Chatter & Other Stuff.   I’m somewhat new to her blog (late on the bandwagon, you could say)… and have already subscribed and will be adding her to my blog rolls.  Check her out!

Another great blog that I learned about in this week’s MEME/contest is ?? at Repurposed.  This is an awesome blog and I only wish I could sew better after checking out some of her cool ideas!  Mama wants new curtains!  And, I love her ideas on re-using sheets… very good idea.  After all, the material in sheets is so sturdy and soft!

I also liked being inspired by the resolutions that you put forth.  I want to thank for your participating and commenting!  It makes EVERYTHING worth it!  I remember last year when I wanted to stop this MEME because I didn’t think anybody really wanted it.  I’m glad the few of you out there urged me to continue it.  It’s fun and I the best part is that I get to meet new people.  That’s what it should be about!

Next week there will not be a Thursday’s Thoughts meme/contest will be published this weekend.

  1. Ti

God Bless and Happy New Year!




The participation level in Thursday’s Thoughts has really dwindled.  I really enjoy the weekly challenge, but due to the level of response on the last two contests, I’m not sure that I should keep it up. 

Please give me your feedback…

Am I better off just hosting periodic contests on A Novel Menagerie?

Thanks for your candid comments!
