Thursday's Thoughts

Tulips, University of North Alabama
  • Did anyone notice the $0.13 jump in gas prices yesterday? It seems like election year always brings gas prices down, why is that?
  • I wonder if Donald Trump realizes the tremendous responsibility he is stepping into…providing he is elected, and I believe he very well may be. I wonder even more if he realizes he can’t call people like Vladimir Putin, Hassan Rouhani, Bashar al-Assad, and Kim Jong-un “Idiot!” when he doesn’t like what they are saying and doing…even if they are.
  • Politics brings out the worst in people. I am just plain weary with Facebook…and I am having to hide a few people from showing up on my “wall.”
  • Is it just me, or does anyone else feel dizzy right before elevator doors open?
  • April is coming…do you know what that means?! Why, it’s the A to Z blogging challenge!  I will blog 26 days out of the 30 for the month!  This will be my fourth year to participate. Other than photography, I am not sure what I am going to do…short stories? One continuous serial story? Random thoughts? I am running out of time to decide, that’s for sure. Maybe I’ll do a hodge podge with no theme…wouldn’t be the first time. 
  • I am also participating over at Committed Thoughts, but that one will be a theme: A daily devotional.   
  • If you are a blogger and have not signed up for the challenge, I highly recommend it. Read about it HERE and sign up HERE

By the way...The ol' Musing Brown Recluse will have a whole new look by the start of the challenge.

Happy Friday Eve!

I can't remember where I snapped this shot!


  1. Wow 2 blogs for A/Z! I admire you for attempting it! I got all of mine written, just need to take a few more pictures which I'll add when they are done. I had to get them done since we are moving the weekend beforehand.

    I'm praying for the upcoming election; I'm also doing a lot of praying for John Kasich and his campaign. Of what I see out there, he's got the experience, he doesn't give in to the antics at the debate with the other three that are left and I think he has a solid performance in leadership. He's a long shot but God is the God of the impossible, so who knows......


    1. Kasich has been my pick from the beginning. I think he as pres and Rubio as VP would be a winning ticket. We'll see.

    2. I definitely like Kasich...probably would have been my pick, but at this point I don't believe he or Rubio stand a chance. Cruz either, for that matter. At first I cringed every time I thought of Trump getting the nomination. Then I remembered that God does place people where He wants them...and if God can speak through a donkey, then he can sure use Trump. I believe with all my heart he'd be a better choice than Hillary. We just have to keep praying.

    3. Hang on , Margaret! Don't get sucked to the dark side! snicker.

      (I just got back. I had intended to comment to you, but just as I finished my reply to Betty, Bill got home and I had to go downstairs. I just came back up--and here you are...unless you've been sucked away into the black hole and will never read this. :} )

    4. haha the dark side is beckoning us, that's for sure, but I'm still hanging on...I think things are going to get really interesting (and wearisome) before November.

  2. I admire you fellow bloggers with the A-A Challenge. I will be lucky if I do 10 posts this year. I wish I had more time to blog.

    1. Hey Becky! If you got time for breathing, you got time for writing! (A little Andy Griffith humor twist there.) I know what you mean about not having the time...there are days when I can't believe it's already 9 p.m. and I haven't gotten anything accomplished! Good to hear from you.


Have musings of your own? Comments are welcome...
