Your post host (me, whee!) believes that a smart start makes inviting writing.
Perceive/receive a theme/scheme for today, okay?
Hmmm. I’m going to put a temporary, necessary stop to this priming rhyming, for clarity (or charity):
When I was a kid, my family played lots of guessing games. One of these was called “Stinky Pinkies.” Here’s how that worked: One person would think of a two-word phrase (usually an adjective and a noun, but not always) that rhymed, such as
Then, that person would give the guessers a clue, such as:
A thankful way of thinking
A WordPress writer
An intelligent beginning
An attractive turn of phrase
A poem that sets up a premise
The name of a great game
And the game would be afoot!
My droll goal, for most of this post, is to show lots of shots of things for which I have a tankful of thankful, with some amusing using of this same game.
It’s up to you to provide guess success.
Stinky Pinky #1
True Clue: An elevating donation.
mk created and posted that amazing picture yesterday, for my not-so-secret identity, Super-Recovery-Woman. I have a tankful of thankful for that.
Stinky Pinky #2
Clue Two: A cat using a computer
While that image speaks for itself, the answer is not up to my usual stringent rhyming standards, but … it’s good enough!
Stinky Pinky #3
New Clue: A lucky visitor.
That’s my dear friend, Megan, who visited me yesterday.
Stinky Pinky #4
Due Clue: A bashful fellow
Stinky Pinky #5
Clue, too: An incredible flower
Let the guessing, messing, and/or confessing begin!
Thanks to my family, mk, my cats, Pharrell Williams (whose video appears in Game #2), Megan, springtime, rhymers and guessers everywhere, true blue friends and readers, and to you — whoo hoo! — for your exquisite visit, today.
I swear Nora my cat looks just like this cat… You let it in and it hisses at you…Nora needs cat therapy or something…
