Bone’s father is recovering from open-heart surgery. Bone’s taken blogging to a new level and has been blogging from the hospital. If you wish leave him a comment at If You Read Only One Blog This Year, (IYROOBTY), as Bone likes to call it.

He asked me to pick the words. The pressure is immense πŸ™‚




Thanks for being understanding.

    Bone, may a smile leap from your heart to your parent’s hearts today – and like carefully controlled but carefree ping pong balls, bounce back and forth in extended play to all including siblings.

  13. mariacristina Says:

    I ended up writing about a heart. I wrote an 8-minute free-write with the words, and ended up thinking about how hearts bounce back. Best wishes to Papa Bone.

    Well Simon’s having second thoughts about his altercation with Morgana and slowly he comes to the conclusion that it’s time to eat humble pie.

  22. thisgirlremembers Says:

    Bone, many thoughts and prayers are being sent your father’s way! Pia, thank you so much for this week’s words – they forced me to go somewhere that is VERY good for me right now. (It’s hard to stay mired when you’ve got “bounce” to contend with!)

    Best wishes for recovery from the surgery!

    Here’s a trifle from antiquity: She walked with a mysterious bounce.

  31. slynne Says:

    I tried it!!!


  32. pjd Says:

    mysterious bounce
    parallel paths through the wood
    tigger and rabbit

    Here are my haiku for today. I’m tellin’ ya, pia, it’s tough to form haiku when you’ve already used up 47% of your available syllables on three words!


  33. Red Says:

    pjd – that’s what makes it so fun!

  34. Write From Karen Says:

    Bone, I hope dad is feeling better. I’m sending well wishes from Missouri.

    Me? I’ve got Civic Duty problems.

  36. TC Says:

    Ya’ll sure are fast! I’ll be around later to read everyone else’s.

    Karma’s laughter

    P.S. Pia, you did a fine job on the words. I’m sure Bone picked the person he most trusted to do the job justice when he asked you.

  37. Amarettogirl Says:

    I am back from my travels and a little ill,l but so excited to be back with 3WW, Bone and Pia.

    Bone…I left you a message at the tail end of all those lovely well-wishes at your blog- I send you the best of all possible energy and thoughts.

    Since I wasn’t feeling great i fused my SS prompt response with the 3WW prompt and I think its better because of it! Let me know what yo think!
    It’s called Bar Code Please and is at:

    p.s. Pia thank you so very much for adding me to the blogroll and I recv’d your wonderful messages!!! I am so appreciative and honored – i feel like I have a new extended blogosphere family!! I noticed the spelling is off but that happens to everyone with the word – amaretto – I was cursed from the moment I chose/drank it!!! πŸ˜‰

  38. Tammy Says:

    Great job Pia! You go Bone!

    I did a short poem on a misty day.



  39. paisley Says:

    way late with this one…. “fortune” cookie

    thanks pia for rising to the occasion…..

  40. Linda Jacobs Says:

    I’ve tried 3 times, now, to leave my link but absolutely nothing happens. When I click “submit Comment” it kicks me back to the home page of 3WW. I’m very confused. Figured I’d try to comment without a link. If this works, I’ll try one more time then will head to bed.

    Thanks, Pia, for these words that were magical for me!

    Bone, hang in there and I’m sending waves and waves of healing to your dad!

  41. Linda Jacobs Says:

    Well, that worked so here’s my link:

    Reply to Marissa

  43. mariacristina Says:

    Hey, y’all, I’ve been working almost since I posted my poem. I’ll be back tomorrow to read.
    Night night.

  44. pia Says:

    Thank you for all the nice things y’all said. Seeing the words Bone has picked out for over a year and a half now enabled me to pick out decent words

    This is totally embarrassing. Somehow comments were checked off closed on my blog which is very weird as when I want to close them it takes two times to close them

    I guess if I read my horoscope or fortune for today it would have said “don’t go near blogs” Any mistakes in 3WW today are mine and mine alone. Same with the blogroll always

  45. WriterKat Says:

    Nice job Pia – the words were the right blend of curiosity and challenge.

    If Only To Feel

  46. Xinh Says:

    I’m so totally behind. I’ll have to think up something for these words. In the meantime, enjoy all the other words I missed here.

  47. AuraGem Says:

    Even though I am still only a newbie here, all I see around is an absolutely wonderful effort all round! It’s a great little community and a credit to all involved!

    Here is my response! I tried a nonet for a change!



  48. ThomG Says:

    Speedy recovery for Bone’s dad. As usual, I needed the day to roll these words (great words, Pia), around on my tongue.


  49. OneMoreBeliever Says:

    doing a great job pia…. the words are terrific… bonez..hope your father is continuing with his recovering and you and your family are well… drenched

  50. Xinh Says:

    And here is my entry for these words.

    Praying that Bone’s dad recovers soon and is healthier too.
    My first time here, and just thought i’d put down my attempt. Would love to know what you’ll think

    Thank you

  53. J.C. Montgomery Says:
