When you start thinking Texas you are pulling the strings of my heart. I cannot imagine a better theme. Of course, I'm sure there are a few of you who might disagree - especially those of my friends who live north of the Red River (you know who you are) - but then you would just be wrong.
By the way, the heart of Texas is Austin. And our very own Jana Magruder, Director of LifeWay Kids, moved to Nashville from Austin. Landry Holmes, the Director of LifeWay Kids Publishing, moved to Nashville from Texas. In fact, there are a lot of proud Texans (and a few Texan wannabes) around the office. So a Texas theme could definitely be a possibility.
I find it interesting how "heart" keeps coming to the surface of the guesses that have been submitted. Some of you are absolutely sure "heart" is in the theme some way or another. We'll just have to wait and see.
So what did the gloved (gorilla) hand have to do with Clue #3? That little detail has me stumped. Of course most of the details have me stumped. I'm sure glad I already know the theme. If not, Clue #3 would have me going under for the third time. Maybe Impossible Clue #4 will fill in the missing pieces of this puzzle.
Now that you regrettably know the theme is not Texas - since I would never have spent so much time in this post talking about Texas if it had anything to do with the theme - share your guess in the comments section.
