  1. You've covered lots of 'blues' I am trying to add to list!

    1. It's amazing how many there really are, Joanne! :-)

  2. I lke your list, Josie. I picked # 27 last night before you even posted this list. But I am just now posting my 'Two Shoes' entry.

    1. Awesome Jim! I was hoping someone would do "blue suede shoes" (which is now #28 since I added another one to the list) :-)

  3. great list the time i get to the end, I have to start over because i forget what I've already read....LOL
    I'm with Jim....#27 was my first pick. I will try to get my post in ASAP

    1. This was great brain exercise, Robin. Surprising how many there really are! Eager to see what you do with blue! No hurry though, you've got 'til Friday to post it!

  4. Well now this one heck of a prompt, with all that and my brain is still empty ..ah well now everyone knows my secret I am at an impasse words swirling none cohesive yet LOL :)

    1. That same thing happens to me Len, all the great prompts and ideas in the world and when I sit down to choose something my brain goes blank. Once I get a plan, I'm good to go, but inspiration has to strike first! Will be watching for your lightbulb to flash! :-)

  5. The only thing I can come up with is blue balls. How's that for a lesbian answer?

    1. Too funny Maria! That one actually occured to me too, then I thought - oh Lord, every perv on the net will search my sight for blue balls. We'll see if my stats increase accordingly! :-)

  6. Blue Tooth...which I'll never accept!

    1. Excellent McGuffy Ann! That one never occured to me! Did you get your phone/headphones/tablet synced up ok?

  7. Oh...Rhythm & Blues, Delta Blues...

    1. Lordy, how did I forget R&B? The music influence in your house is shining thru :-)

  8. My first thought, and I cannot explain why, was blew your nose.

    As my mind returned to my control, I thought of Russian Blue.

    1. Hehe, love it! Maybe because you've been feeling so lousy lately, Monkey. Hope you're doing much better by now! Leave it to a cat person to come up with Russian Blue, and they are so incredibly beautiful!

    2. I'm getting better, thanks.

      Given that you are probably the only person I know that loves cats as much as I do, I was surprised you missed that one.

  9. McGuffy Ann is on a roll this morning (literally) and texted in a bunch more that I added to the list! Crazy how many blue connections we've all come up with! I wonder if that would be true of any other color?

  10. Ummm...Wow. That is quite a list.

    Love your crocus-y blog background! Such a lovely color.

    1. We're definitely in "blue mode" here Jenny, it's been fun! Purple is my favorite color, hence the background. :-)


Your comments are always appreciated... they make me smile! :-)
