Thursday Thirteen

It's Thanksgiving here in the U.S.A. It would be natural to do a "things I'm thankful for," but I'm a bit abbynormal, so now I have to think of something else! Hmm. But what?

How about . . . stuff in my office. For which, actually, I am thankful, now that I think of it. Ha. Fooled myself! So Happy Thanksgiving, and thank you for reading! (I love my readers.)

Taylor on the left, Takamine on the right.
1. A Taylor and a Takamine guitar.

2. A Nikon camera sitting on a tripod, ready for action.

3. Nasal saline spray.

4. The Four Elements, by Don Miguel Ruiz. It's summed up easily: be impeccable with your Word; don't take anything personally, don't make assumptions, and always do your best. The first is the most important.

5. Bits and pieces of a letter to the editor I'm working on about our (idiotic) county's plan to relocate some of the most historic structures in our part of Virginia.

6. My diploma from Hollins College (now Hollins University).

7. A picture of Gandalf the White from the movie The Two Towers.

8. A plate hanging on the wall that says Friends are the family we choose for ourselves.

9. A photo of my nephew, arm back, football in hand, as he makes a throw when he was a quarterback in high school.

10. A hot cup of tea.

11. Two fudge stripe cookies (yes, this is breakfast).

12. A candle shaped like a pyramid.

13. The Chicago Manual of Style (15th edition).


Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list
here if you want to read other Thursday Thirteens and/or play along. I've been playing for a while and this is my 422nd time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.


  1. You can tell a lot about a person by what is on their desk. I also love to look into people's shopping carts at the grocery store.

    Save some room for turkey!

  2. Tsk on the cookies, but I'm jealous of the Gandalf poster. Too cool.

  3. Eclectic items in your office. I like it!


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
