Thursday Thirteen: Edition "I"

1. Ironing: It's against my religion.

2. Iraq: My son served there during Desert Storm.

3. Ice storms: Missouri gets its share of them.

4. Idea: Whose bright idea was this Thursday Thirteen thing, anyhow? (Just kidding, of course; or I wouldn't be doing it.)

5. Iambic pentameter: Shakespeare used it often.

Sonnet 18
Shall I compare thee to a Summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And Summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And oft' is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd:
But thy eternal Summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wanderest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:

So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
6. Iris: A flower so easy to grow that even I can't kill it.

7. Iris Dement: Everybody knows I love her music.

8. Indian: I always wished I were an Indian.

9. "Is It Raining At Your House?" One of my favorite songs by Vern "the Voice" Gosdin.

10. Idiots: Describes a few people I know.

11. Irate: That's what I get when surrounded by idiots.

12. "It Happened One Night". One of my all-time favorite movies, the original "chick flick", made in 1934. Since I have DVR now, I caught it on Turner Classics the other night and watched it yesterday. Here's my favorite part, the hitchhiking scene:

13. Imagination: I feel sorry for people who don't have one.

Good list! Vern Gosdin! Hadn't heard him mentioned in a long time. He is such a good singer and songwriter! I always loved his music.

Beautiful horse picture. AND there's always something gorgeous, and comforting about 1930's movies (I.E. 'Thin Man' series)

Claudette is one of my favorite actresses past or present. I just watched "The Egg and I" a few days ago and I fall in love with her all over again.
