Forge the Ford to Fragment Land

Half-Past Kissin' Time
The party may be over but the Frags forge on!

That is right yesterday Friday May 9th was the last day of Mrs. 4444's Fraggin Fantastic Tercentennial Celebrations. I hope you joined in with the fun and will continue to join myself and others as we continue to Frag on each week. A great big thank you to Mrs. 4444's for a fantastic party and the chance to win a fabulous gift. My congratulations to the other winners  Bill (aka Lisleman), Traci, Cathy and Karen!

Round and Round I go!
Some days the proverbial rocking chair on the front porch is so appealing. It has been one of THOSE weeks. Just maybe going back and forth is better than going in circles.

Lord of fiction!
One of the greatest testaments to the ability of an author must surely be to have their works emulated and used as inspiration for other artistic works. I can't imagine anyone would argue with me that Tolkien is just such an author. Tolkien's famed 'Lord of the Rings' novels were written over a period of years from 1937-1949 and have gained great popularity over the years, and references to his writings can be found in many 70's era rock songs, including songs from such great artists as Led Zeppelin, Styx and Rush. 

Hail the Queen!
Rock n Roll's king may be gone but it sure looks like there is a new Queen. Do you follow American Idol? It is one of those shows that I enjoy but have never been really excited about until this season. Wow! the talent this season has been so amazing it has been difficult to have a favorite. I was leaning toward Caleb as my favorite but then Jena stole the spot with her amazing rendition of Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling in Love". I still think Caleb will be the next American Idol but boy I wish they could both win. Who is or was your favorite?

My Week In Review:

At Artistic Composition this week I asked for readers opinion and shared what 'Golden Years' means to me. Then over at my photography blog I shared a sneak peek of a birthday party I photographed, along with a few odd and abstract photos. While on South Dakota photo blog I shared my favorite photo of a quaint little horse ranch nestled in the Black Hills. This coming Sunday I will be sharing a few horse shots on the South Dakota Photo blog.

Let's keep the party going folks! Please stop over and thank Mrs. 4444's for hosting the fun and easy Friday Fragments and stop by and say hi to the fragment party goers!

that's good one about the rocking chair - never thought of it that way.
I need to check out this new star.
