Caption contest, and An Announcement.

Only a few caption entries this week. I think I picked a photo that didn't lend itself well to this kind of thing. . . too many faces, too much stuff going on, I guess. 

And I am going to give this contest a break for a while. . . Janette, you were 100% right. ;-) This series is getting tired. It was fun for a little while, but the novelty has now worn off. . . And besides, it makes me feel guilty when there's only "caption contest" stuff, and no substantial posts. Even if I don't get the time to publish "epic", high quality posts regularly, that doesn't mean that I'm going to clutter up this space with relatively inconsequential offerings. All or nothing. Quality, not quantity, and all that.

And I am working on the next post in my literary adaptations series. . . it'll be up later this week, I promise. :-) In fact, it's all written out, I just need to type it up and get some photos together. . . tomorrow afternoon.


Wives and Daughters

1. Miss Browning: "Now, I think we should form a 'Red Hat Society' here in Hollingford."

2. Miss Browning (whispered to Hyacinth): "You really must get Molly some more fashionable clothing. She's the only one without a cloak or an elaborately ribboned hat - I'm afraid she rather sticks out like a sore thumb."

3. Molly (to herself): "Humph. Maybe I should invite Hyacinth's brother-in-law Onslow over for tea with the Miss Brownings. That would take my 'dear mama' down a peg or two!"

4. Miss Browning: "Did I mention that I am purchasing a cow from a local farmer, I always thought it was a very elegant sort of animal." Molly Gibson (low voice) "Very elegant." Miss Phoebe: "You didn't tell me that you were purchasing a cow."

Missed it again!! Oh well!

I love reading your literary adaptations posts!

You know, about the contest, you could do it once a month, instead of once a week. That would spread it out if you wanted it to continue. :)

To the KING be all the glory!

Rebekah, yeah, I might do something like that. . . bring it back every once in a while, just not have it on all the time to the point where everyone starts to get a bit tired of it!
