Hey there Blake :)

Thank you for including me in the daily prompt today. I feel honored that you think my piece is worthy of a little blue url labeled as the inspiration for today. Lifted my feet a few inches off the ground.

Thanks Blake!  Just wanted to try and write for a while now and haven't had the motivation.  Figured this would be a place to start.

Blake, I am trying without success to change my e-mail address and password to SalvatoreButtaci@aol.com. My old address, sambpoet@yahoo.com, was hacked days ago.

Clock? CLOCK? We don' need no stinkin' clock, man.

(I believe that's attributable to Cheech Marin.)

Seriously, our computers keep time.

And if we need an excuse to write longer than 10 minutes, why, all the better.

Apologies - imprecise use of language - I meant the twenty-four members whose avatars appeared before mine on the Members section.   I assume that as each of us logs on for the first time within a set number of hours, our avatar is generated to appear on this Members page, regardless of whether or not there is any subsequent activity.

Thinking about it, it could have been generated by you trawling through various posts ... (DO  NOT, whatever you do, tell me I am 'thinking too much'!!)

Blake - I also meant to say thanks for the prompts this week - every one a gift for the continuation of this 'Crime scene' tale!

 

At 11:17pm on March 16, 2011, Sandra Davies said…

Blake - thanks for featuring my 'Deserved nickname' story today ,,, but, looking at the featured avatars beneath I am wondering is it REALLY the case that some twenty-four folk have visited while I've been asleep, and not one has commented?   Or were they otherwise generated?

Cheers, Sandra
