TTo(reprint)T -the Wakefield Doctrine- ‘…like sand through the hourglass, these are the grains of our lifes’

Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks scotts and rogers)



Reprint from the First Year August 20 2013 … or maybe August 2001… and you totally need to click here for the really cool part

(Did you click on some of the links of the participants? Mr Peabody be totally eating his heart out.)

So, the reprint is from 2013, that’s 3 years times 10 equals 30 Items!

1) minimus cum irreductibile:  Ms L and her co-hostinae and this here bloghop here

2) Una and Phyllis

3) Gravity Challenge… this is the second year, can you believe that?!

4) ‘Almira’ Chapter 24 due out this weekend. Very cool this book writing thing. This time last week I was all, ‘oh man! what am I gonna do?! There’s Dorothy and Eliza marching into St Mary’s, all bold as can be, to see the woman who is in the Charity Ward and here we are, that woman, or rather her story from when she was 16 years old in 1912. How the hell do I account for 27 years?  Lucky for me I discovered that Cyril Sauvage (Emily Gale’s older brother who died in the Battle of the Marne in 1918) went to Dartmouth before he enlisted! So the rest is…well, you’ll have to read the Chapter. If you want a preview (sorta) try this Six Sentence Story.  (you know… it’s an established fact that Cyril and Sterling went to Dartmouth… and, even as I type, I’m picturing the dates for this to work and… and they line up!… well, how many readers had relatives come and visit them at college, with, say a younger brother or sister come for a Fall Homecoming Weekend or something… maybe go to the Mixer…meet someone…. damn! I’ve said too much already)

5-8) the Reprint below (especially the old links)

9) Book of Secret Rules (aka the Secret Book of Rules)

10) SR 1.3



Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers)

I am ‘happy’ to have another Post to contribute to the Ten Things of Thankful bloghop. Created by Considerer with the aid, support, encouragement and participation of Christine and them, this is not your typical bloghop. While there is nothing wrong with the ‘typical’ bloghops (I participate in the Twisted MixTape Tuesday run by Jen (My Skewed View) and Kristi (Finding Ninee) and Finish The Sentence Friday Janine ( ‘mommyholic) and Kate (‘bottle of Whine) and Stephanie (‘for Real) and Kristi.

What makes our TToT different is that it is a true ‘weekend blog hop’. By that I simply mean that it starts this morning and ends tomorrow night. If you want to participate you can do so at any time this weekend…and (here’s the difference) people come and read and Comment throughout the weekend, so if you have trouble today (I am a great example, I have to work today, so I’ll get this Post in and read who ever is around…later in the middle of the day, I’ll pop in and see whats going on…then the end of the day and so on). And… Comments? thats a little different here too! Jump in anywhere we totally believe in cross commenting. So… I think I have put this off as long as I can… my List of Ten Things:

(…yeah, I know!)

(too late to quit now!)

(…lets wrap this up!)

Ok… I had fun doing this…. (did someone just imply that they were….?)

Number 10 I am grateful that I am able to submit the above as my TToT of this Week.

We’re here all weekend (‘try the veal’) Be sure to tip your Waitress… and Comment (‘dammit! Jim I’m a Wakefield Doctrine writer, not a videographer!)

Kinda cool, no? All the ‘old posts’

Well, what exactly do you want to know? Whether I am a clark or a scott or roger? If you have to ask, then you need to keep reading the Posts for two reasons: a)to get a clear enough understanding to be able to make the determination of which type I am and 2) to realize that by definition I am all three.* *which is true for you as well, all three...but mostly one

    In a way, several items on your current list are things for which I am thankful also. The Gravity challenge, the TToT, and the enjoyment of Almira. I skimmed a couple of the videos from your first post. That was very technical if you ask me. See you in the week.

    I loved the old video list. I was especially taken with the idea of the TToT being our own small town. Being a small town girl, that image appeals to me.

  4. Kristi says:

    The second year for the gravity challenge?! Wow!

  5. zoe says:

    Yknow i would swear i left a comment here this morning. I even remember watching all the vids!!! And clicking on old blogs from days gone by in the old post you linked to….what the??? Not in Kansas anymore!!!

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      yeah… the only disappointment was when some had switched like Lizzi (from blogger to wordpress)… others though, Christine and Kristi B-B. it’s a total Wayback Machine!

  6. The gravity challenge is that old? Really??? Wow. Well I’m pretty happy for it as I’ve seen a distinct lessening of my hold on the earth – and it’s sticking! That’s the best part for me. It’s been wicked slow, but it’s not going back up. I’ll take it.
    I’m glad to be back among the hostinae – took quite a long break in August and then some.

      yeah… my home computer is where I put all the photos prior to uploading and I noticed the ‘..15’ and I was all, ‘damn! a year ago plus’ I should look up the very first day of the GC…. for party-planning purposes, of course.

  7. christine says:

    Hard to believe that the gravity challenge is 2! Maybe perhaps because I’ve made so little progress. And that I haven’t weighed in for months. Thanks for always including my name, waiting patiently and optimistically for my return. (Funny, the readings at church this week included the story of the prodigal son. Ha!)
    Gotta love Mr. Peabody…
