One person sets a theme (not musical) and the next person adds a post to fit the theme (copying the title and entries so far). Nobody should post twice in a row. The person who completes the Baker's Dozen (post #13) begins the next one - which should not echo what's already been done. You can be the Theme Setter twice in a row, but if you complete post #13 a third time, please leave it to somebody else.
