A New Photo Ready for Your Caption

Ann H Gabhart Ann's Posts, One Writer's Journal 31 Comments

Caption Photo 2 You people are great caption writers! Thanks so much for coming up with some good thoughts for Oscar. He agrees he might have said them all!

But what do I think he might have said? I know. You didn’t ask, but it’s my fingers on the keyboard right now. πŸ™‚ Actually, I was with many of you who thought of the need for a little dandruff shampoo. Oscar and snow1Then a few of you mentioned how the old groundhog must had been lying when he said no more winter. Kim used her imagination and came up with an angel sneezing and perhaps showering down angel dust on Oscar. Lois had Oscar chasing a cat around the kitchen and managing to upset the flour container.

The one that probably sounded the most like Oscar was from Carol. β€œI’m not budging until I get my biscuit; I don’t care how deep this snow gets.” Then somebody suggested he was turning gray and might need to hunt the dye bottle. I doubt Oscar would worry that much about gray hair. That’s me hating to see those gray hairs.

But maybe I’ll just let Oscar say, “Hey, am I looking good enough to be on Facebook again?”

Contest Entries

Okay. All of you have an entry in the drawing on Sunday for a chance to win your choice of one of my books and a grab bag book by a different inspirational author too. The contest is open to everybody over 18. You can enter by leaving a caption on one of the pictures or all of the pictures through the end of March. Each caption on a new picture gets you an additional entry in that week’s drawing. I’ll draw for a winner this Sunday and post a new photo then for a new contest for the following week. Is that all clear as mud? Well, clear or not, I hope you’ll keep having fun with the contest. Before we’re through, three of you will be winners.

Remember, the captions have to be family friendly. So what do you think my little guy in the picture above is thinking or getting ready to say?

Remembering Mom

Mom

Today is Mom’s birthday. She would have been 96. She always said she wanted to live to be 100, but I think she would have changed her mind once she got Alzheimer’s. But she made it to 90 before she showed many symptoms and was always ready to smile and enjoy being with those she loved. This is one of my favorite pictures of her. She was at my house watching the kids hunt Easter eggs.

I miss her. I know many of you, who have had to say goodbye to your mothers, understand how I feel. But one thing sure – our mothers never leave our hearts.

As always, thanks for reading and I look forward to your new captions.

    Ann, I’m with you and this little fellow in being tired of the election stuff. So great caption.

    Evelyn, the funny papers were always my favorite. We always called them the funnies. So good thought for my little guy.

    Kathi, this little guy would probably enjoy making that airplane, so good caption.

    I appreciate all of you playing my caption game and one of you will be a winner on Sunday.

    Peggy, I like your 5 cent caption. Except I doubt my little fellow can remember anything ever costing only 5 cents. LOL.

    Kathleen, that is really cute. He may have been looking for Oscar’s picture. LOL.

    Nyla, I like your caption too. Checking out that Fischer-Price stock. πŸ™‚

    Connie, thanks for your caption. Sounds like my mystery in the making.

    “I’m really tired of all this election stuff!”

    Guess I’m projecting my feelings on the little guy. πŸ˜±πŸ˜‰

    “Uh-oh, they misquoted me again…I said, ‘if elected, free ice cream on Thursday, not every day!’. Somebody’s in trouble!”
    Love the picture of your mom. She was so pretty. My 88-year old mom will be 89 in May. I treasure each moment. I will always remember my mom’s favorite expression when things look bleak, ‘keep looking up.’ She is very wise. Blessings for a good weekend.

      That’s a cute caption, Linda. Free ice cream on Thursday might get some votes. LOL. But not as many as every day.

      Mom was a pretty woman. Wishing you many good days with your mom. And that’s a great outlook. To keep looking for blessings.

      Thank you Maryann. I do have sweet memories of times with my mother.

      But I don’t know about trading the headline news page for the comics. πŸ™‚

    “Well, would you look at that…they sell donuts that you can actually eat!”
    Sorry about your Mom. Lost my dad last Nov., so understand. Glad to know they are in heaven and we’ll see them again someday. Used to send him your Fri. jokes. πŸ™‚

    Hi Ann,
    I just finished reading one of your old books called… “Wish Come True”, found it at our library.
    What a great and sweet story!!
    So many wise words you wrote, but I think my favorite is from page 30…..
    “…….as long as you remember that thoughts and ideas are more valuable than money. If you don’t think about anything except making money then sometimes you don’t have time to think about important things. The poetry of real life.”

    I read today is your mom’s birthday and I had noticed that you dedicated this book to your mom with love and appreciation. Sure made me smile!!

    Many blessings to you dear Ann.
    Warmly,
    Cathy

      That is an old book from the past, Cathy. Fun that you pulled out some of my words to highlight. I have to admit I’m always surprised when somebody does that and end up thinking, did I really write that? LOL. But it does sound like good advice for my young heroine, Alyssa. Thanks again for your kind words, Cathy. I’ll throw your name in my caption giveaway drawing hat even if you didn’t come up with a newspaper reading kid caption.
