TToT -the Wakefield Doctrine- Lets call this our Starter Post* (* some assembly required )

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


Old Hobbits die hard.

Today is Saturday and so, as I have for the last 3 or 4 years* I am writing a TToT Post. If for no other reason than, a) its beneficial 2)  the Book of Secret Rules (aka the Secret Book of Rules) has a rule that sorta requires it and c) our Founderess Lizzi (‘my friends call me Lizzi‘) Lewis (‘my great uncle still is not CS Lewis‘) is embarked on a journey to

  • discover Dr. Livingston
  • tell Jane that it’s time for her to ditch the leopard-tard and get a little more green, fashionistically-speaking
  • dropping in on Friend of the Doctrine Melanie to share her recipe for bangers ‘n mash

so, while we await the Western Union, giving us updates and such, allow me to get the Listationing started this week!

1)  Phyllis and Una

2) my readers over at ‘Almira‘. We are in the final chapters of our story.

3) the aforementioned BoSR/SB0R  (for any new Readers, zoe is the curatoress of our most special Book ‘o Rules and Exceptions and cool-things-to-do. Hit her right up if you have any questions regarding interpretation, application, renunciation or justification (did I cover most ‘-ations?)

4) Work for being flexible enough to allow me to delay leaving this morning ’cause I was caught by the thought, ‘damn! the TToT needs to get out there’

5) The Graviteers

6) The Six Sentence Story (zoe and them)

7) to be filled out later today

8) …like #7, later today

9)  no, it’s not yet ‘later today’…. you’re still reading the same post.

wait!!! wait…. it can’t be Monday! I haven’t finished my Ts

10) Secret Rule 1.3

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


  1. Hey! Where is everybody??
    In that case, I’ll claim Frist, please.

    You are on your final chapters? You are wrapping up? It is—-you know—like a book?!?!?! Good for you! That is truly exciting!

    I heard the tag with my name on it from Facebook earlier, but not from my usual, as my phone is deciding to crap ut on me, just as I am going to need to depend on it.
    I heard Lizzi is off on a trip and I hope this TToT will keep going, somehow, but you are so great for keeping it going like you do. I had a busy time lately and still I planned to come back this weekend, with more than ten things, but a test to see if I could reach fifty.
    After that, I am off on my own journey next week and who knows where that might lead.

    I have got to get back into writing my posts during the week, because this skating in at the last minute thing I’ve been doing lately isn’t as enjoyable for me.

    I like your blogyears line–that has to be real. Time does seem to pass differently online.

      I know what you mean… there is/was that ‘Hey! it’s Saturday and look, theres zoe and kristi and kristi and Michelle and is that a new person?’ thing
      Ii remind myself that although nothing stays the same, it doesn’t have to disappear, as the part of me who wants to hug a good thing simply because I don’t believe another good thing will be coming along

    Thank you so much for putting up your post on Facebook and reassuring me that the TToT is not dead. I think it would be heartbreaking to let such a positive thing get lost in the busy-ness and ups and downs of life. Really, that’s the whole point of the exercise, to remind ourselves and others that, no matter what, there are always things to be thankful for and reasons to smile. I hope we can get a blog link-up going again as not everyone participates in social media. I’ve recommitted myself to sticking with it this year. I am wondering why the TToT could not have it’s own blog, so that finding the link up would be simple to schedule in advane for each week. I got waylaid in my reading of Almira, but will be back soon, now that I am starting to feel better and things are settling down. I loved what I had read so far, and am eager to see where it goes from there. Congrats on nearing completion, that’s exciting! And yes, you have your priorities just right with your #1 thankful – family and friends first, always!

    Congratulations on being able to see the finish line and cross over it soon! Phyllis and Una certainly have to be a tremendous support to you as you get near to the finish line.
