So, We Have The Caption Winners!

"Wendy thought she would punch Martha in the head, if she bragged about that damned seashell planter one more time tonight!"

"The Schlitz family realized early in life the bonding potential of daily 'Evening Family Beer Time'. It also helped to distract them from Father, who had most untoward desires and fantasies about the family pet parrot, Caligula.

Father frequently tried to get Caligula drunk and coax him away from his perch, but thankfully, the parrot was the smart one of the bunch."

The winner of photo caption #1 - and the Martha Stewart Encyclopedia of Crafts - is Jo Archer!

The winner of photo caption #2 - and the Twilight series of books - is Anne Huskey-Lockard!

Ladies, please send me your addresses and I'll get your prizes right out to you!

Thank so much to everybody who entered - I had such a good time reading your entries - lots of snickers and "come in here and read this!"-ing was going on around the computer!

And - an especially big thanks to Mo "Mad Dog" Stoneskin, who chose our winners!

Now, I'm off to watch my Sunday evening tv shows - "Desperate Housewives," "Treme," and "Breaking Bad." I love Sunday tv!

Enjoy what's left of the weekend!

Congratulations to the winners. I loved those captions!!! I just got back from Vermont and I was catching up on some posts I missed. Have a wonderful evening.

Hi Tristan,
I haven't seen your posts on my dashboard for your last two posts and was looking at my list of blogs I follow and you are at the very top - instead of in alphabetical order - and you are merely represented by a . Yes, just a . dot. I didn't see it at first and kept trying to follow again under (which is not you, anyway) .
This is probably more information than you need at this hour of the night. Just thought I'd mention it in case someone else thought they were going batty too!

Beverly said...

Wow! These are great. Congratulations!

Tristan, I've missed you on Saturday. Are you getting your pink ready for our second birthday on May 29?

Haha...that was very funny. I was out of town, and didn't see this until now. Hubby had to go to the hospital this week (damn heart attack), so I am finally home and looking at my favorite blogs. Thanks for making me laugh...I needed it.
