Name That Photo Contest Winners Announced

July 13th, 2010

“I was promised cake.”
Submitted by Geo
The above caption is my choice for this contest, but I also contacted Dear Charles and after laboriously explaining to him how these blog contests work and then asking him  if he wouldn’t mind choosing a winner he responded thusly…

Hmmm. I’m leaning toward “I am in love with Charles” by Cat, Chaps and Emma, just because it has a nice ring to it, but it is kind of hard to figure out why the dinosaur would be announcing it to the boys. With that one disqualified, I think I like

“’Goddamn overachievers!’, he scowled as he kicked his pipecleaner Moses under the table” the best, and my second favorite is
“As the children posed for the camera, the evil dinosaur could tell one had seen through his disguise.”

Hoping to the Particle I’m not too late,

Charles’s first pick was submitted by KM.
His second pick was submitted by Maureen MacDonald.

If KM, Geo and Maureen could email me at mysistersfarmhouse@live dot com with their mailing addresses, I will happily send each of you a mug.  You may request a specific mug, but if you manage to pick the same one, I won’t be able to make the magic happen and will be forced to randomly assign you a mug that was at best, second choice and at worst – third.  Sorry in advance for any pain this might cause.

In vain I have struggled,


  • km:

  • jamoody:

  • Good job, guys! I got so excited about the redesign that I failed to write a caption. Whoops.

  • I must agree with Charles. He can do or say no wrong….sigh

  • I was in Chicago and didn’t get to commment. But I went to that etsy site and have found my new addiction! Love it!

  • km:

    Rechelle, my mug arrived safe and sound. Thank you so much!!!
    Now you must get your hands on all the old seasons of Mad Men and have a marathon catch-up session. Its slow and layered and perfect with wine.
