There was a blogger called hutton on blogs who used to run a weekly caption competition. She would find cute pictures on the web or from emails, and then invite comments which would suggest captions. There would be a vote as to whose was best. I miss the fun of those, so why not run a similar thing?

This first picture, being of me, I will do my own caption for as below.

Colonialist shows a deadly split infinitive to young R, warning her to not ever anywhere near one go.

Now here is the competition one, which I got from an email. My own caption appears on a popup. I am putting no limit on entries and am hoping for some good displays of imagination!

Garden judging has taken up much of my time recently. Garden of the Year Competition is our major event. I hope in due course to post some of the pics I took during it. One to go on with:

  8. Love the Meerkat manor. I’m no good at these caption things. I remember Hutton too.
    Anyway, my caption:
    “I’m returning her … and they had better give me a full refund! Same as a puppy, my foot!” 🙂

    As to the Meerkat Manor. That garden should be disqualified. They obviously know that the judge has a propensity for meerkats. Undue influence.
    Caption: “Found this in the trash. Looks like a good toy. May I keep it?”


  10. nrhatch says:

    Great idea, Col. I’ll give it a go:

    “Excuse me, Miss. I think you dropped this.”
