Blogophilia Week 39.13 – Sudden Change of Seasons

This is Ecrits Blogophilia Week 39 of our 13th year!

Woooooh Nelly! It’s the FINAL week of this season! Next week a SUDDEN CHANGE OF SEASONS begins! We’ll roll the cumulative points into Lifetime Points and start SEASON 4 of Year 13 with a clean slate!

Seasons are a changin’

blues hearted lady, sleepy was she
love for the devil brought her to me
tears of a thousand drawn to her sin
seasons of wither holdin’ me in
oooh woe is me, I feel so badly for you
oooh woe is me, I feel so sadly for you in time
bound to lose your mind
live on borrowed time
take the wind right out of your sail
fireflies dance in the heat of
hound dogs that bay at the moon
my ship leaves in the midnight
can’t say I’ll be back too soon
they awaken, far far away
heat of my candle show me the way
tears of a thousand drawn to her sin
seasons of wither holdin’ me in
~ “Seasons of Wither” by Aerosmith

ATTENTION BLOGGERS: PLEASE continue to post the link to your blog on either the Facebook Martien Ecrits timeline or the Ecrits Blogophilia group!!!!!! We ask you do this each week, wherever your blog might be, even if it’s on WordPress and we are subscribed to your blog! The reason is we often get delayed notifications on WordPress, and have found it difficult at times to find some blogs. Facebook will continue to serve as a central landing page, this will ensure we don’t miss you. Also, Facebook readers are more likely to read your blog as well if you provide a link there. Thanks for your cooperation!



Week 38.13 Jacket Winner

Hope all you Earthlings had a Happy Thanksgiving! We are stuffed full of turkey and getting ready for Christmas! Christopher Mitchell remains overlord of the Blogophilian group this week, with what seems to be a iron tight stranglehold on the jacket! We haven’t seen this since the early days of Myspace Blogophilia! Stormy Gail Dormire spreads her wings and despite technological challenges, flies by the stunned Falcon aka Craig Fallon! Christine Wichman is decking her halls with boughs of holly and making jolly, while Lika Saliscente-Phipps is busy baking Christmas cookies! The rest of the Blogophilians are getting into the spirit of the holidays as we wind down our FINAL week of Season 3!!! So the two big questions on our minds are …. who will wear the jacket next week? Who will be the SEASON 3 CHAMPION?

Last week’s topic was submitted by Colleen Keller Breuning!
Christine Wichman, Lika Saliscente-Phipps, and Michelle King all knew that Colleen had tons to be grateful for in 2020, despite the COVID pandemic! They tag her as the culprit behind the thoughtful topic, each scooping up a nifty two points!

Last week’s bonus suggestions were provided by Dia Jade and Lissa Fallon! They each receive 2 points for their contributions!!

Last week’s picture was submitted by Doris Emmett!!
Stormy took one look at that vintage drawing of autumn Snoopy and realized that fellow dog lover Doris was behind last week’s picture! Both of them pick up 4 points accordingly!

Martien’s secret picture bonus criteria was “Red Baron!!”
Craig, Irene, Lika, Lissa, Michael and Stormy were taken back to the holidays of the past and heartwarming Peanuts cartoons. They channeled Snoopy’s alter ego, and came up big! Each of them adds 2 points to their scores, with Lika, Michael and Stormy receiving one bonus point for including in the content of their blogs.

Now, isn’t that lovely?
