You have an odd sense of humor and I like it. By the way, get some Campbell's and make the Tomato Basil soup (my T entry)...there's other things to do with the tomatoes. Joni

Now, pray tell, who on earth's idea was this? Poor little tomaotes. Tell Mr. Jenny to behave. Ah, the truth comes out. Not him, huh!

Mumsy said...

I like what you did with these tiny little tomatoes..so fun!

Christy said...

you kill me...really...thanks for the giggle!

GardenofDaisies said...

Your post just put a huge smile on my face! I hope you did this with the grandgirlies! They would LOVE it!! Have you seen the book "Play With Your Food"??

Anna said...

Dear Jenny,
You are amazing! It is a pleasure to be one of your pupils!

When it comes to your own post, it is a school example of how to post a letter. You have chosen the word "Tomato", which is an excellent T-word! Then you have taken tomato-ness one step further by givng these garden fruits/vegetables drama, character-development and a plot with a tragic end! Well done!

When it comes to leaving comments, I sometimes find it difficult commenting on certain posts. Sometimes I don't understand what some people mean. But when this happens, I usually read your comments to see if you have understood their ideas better. And you often see things that I have missed. You read carefully and write your comments with great care, something that I try to think about when I am leaving comments, even outside of Alphabe-Thursday.

Wishing you the very best.
Anna
