Saturday Centus - Centennial Celebration

Jenny Matlock


Welcome to week ONE HUNDRED of Saturday Centus.

One hundred.

Holy my goodness.

Is that possible?

I wanted to make my blog explode with fireworks and send you all cupcakes to celebrate this crazy cool event! I wanted to write a mushy speech and thank you all for enriching my life and blah, blah... (which is quite true...I love reading these and I love our little SC community) ... but I'm sick again and will get all maudlin and emotional ...


AND...

I'm not that good at blog programming...


AND...

I figured the icing would melt on the cupcakes...


So...

I thought it might be fun to go back to where this little meme started.

For old times sake, let's use the first prompt...EVER!

Here's a link to the first SC ever...be prepared to drop your jaw at the lengthy first prompt I came up with!

The prompt this week is: My untied shoelace changed my life. As I leaned down to re-tie it, I kicked away a few leaves. When I turned my head slightly to look where the leaves had been, I was astonished to see a rubber-banded wad of hundred dollar bills nestled in a little indention in the muddy ground.

Number of words: 100 plus the 53 words of the prompt. Geez, I was wordy with the prompts back then!
Style of writing: Any
Pictures: As many extra pictures as you like


The regular restrictions apply: PG, no splitting of the prompt, play nicely and visit the other entries, any style or genre of writing you prefer.

Please display my link button or just a hyper-link back to Saturday Centus. Be careful to link your SC URL to the Linky and not just link to your main blog.

E-mail me directly with ???'s or ask your question in a comment and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.

Feel free to link up anytime between now and next Saturday!

A Centus Centennial Celebration! I had a million things to do today, but when I saw this, I had to join in. Your fault, Jenny if my bills don't get paid, lol!

Happy Centennial, and thanks for a wonderfully inspiring blog. - Judee (write tuit at WordPress)

How timely to have the 100th Centus. This weekend celebrates the 100th anniversary of my town being officially gazetted as a town. :)

jENNY, IT IS 8:16 A.M. and I have entered my link, but it's not here! I tried to enter it again, but Linky says I can't, because I already have!!!

I'm thinking about you, sister! You know that, though.

Happy 100th Anniversary and GET WELL. That last wish is an order! I love you, dear Jenny. You have touched my heart in so many ways. Prayers continue being sent on your behalf.

Oh, and yeah. That is one hell of a prompt. Funny, I don't remember it. Maybe I came late to the game.

Dear Jenny,
If it weren't for the fact that you are not well, I would say 'what fun' because I started later on and never did the very first prompt! So cool.

But now back to you, dear Jenny. You wonderful person! Please take care of yourself. I hope you will be feeling better very soon.

Here in Sweden, the weather has been strange today. It snowed this morning! Can you imagine that? And even though the snow disappeared towards the sfternoon, it is still very cold and windy! Sort of like 'April Fool's Day' one day early.

Best wishes & hugs,
Anna

So sorry to ear you're not feeling like our good happy and superwoman Jenny that we all love dearly! But, how X-cool is that this is your 100th Centus post! Okay, I have my 153 words (53 your prompt) ready for grading! I hope you feel better quickly and can enjoy your weekend! xoxoxoxo

Karen S. said...

Ha ha! So sorry to ear? Well yeah, with my reading eyes anyway...it should have been sorry to HEAR!!!! With my eyes right!!! ;)

Sue said...

I didn't do the first one with you, and I am laughing at how long the prompt was!

=D

Oh, my sweet, sweet friend! I'm so sorry you've been battling illness. I hope and pray that you will be feeling better very soon. Sending you all the kindest thoughts and get well wishes and prayers I can send.

I'm on Mr. Magpie's computer ( aka I've absconded with Mr. Magpie's computer) and am out to visit the sweet folks like you who came by to visit me. Thanks so much for your visit. This is awful not having my own computer, but hopefully that will change in the not too distant future.

Miss you much and love your more...

XO,

Sheila

CONGRATULATIONS, Jenny. We love you. I'm sorry my attendance has been spotty and I skipped class again this week. But I appreciate that you don't fuss over my poor attendance. You class is my favorite! I've had such fun and learned so much.

Judie said...

Well, why don't you write the entire Centus, and we can just put our links on it and send it back. It would make commenting a lot quicker!!
