|This is the smile picture that needed a fun caption.|
First, I printed the captions that my friends had written. I cut them into individual strips. My plan was to put them all in a hat and have someone pick out the winner. I removed my sister's and husband's captions. All relatives must be disqualified in such a high stakes contest!
|Strips of the Captions.|
Next, I folded each strip. The excitement was growing. Who will be the lucky winner? How many times should I fold each strip? I must do this properly. I don't want anyone to think this was rigged.
Now, I must find the perfect hat to use. It did not take me long to find it. This hat had fallen from its holder just that morning as if asking for me to choose it. I love how everything was working with me, even the hat knew the importance of this contest.
|Thank you, Flower Power Cruise hat for volunteering to take part in the contest.|
I had thought that I would have Ray pick out the winning caption, but he was focused on his drone software (and it was not being cooperative). I know he would have taken a few seconds to pick a caption out of the hat...but right when I headed to his office...in walks Ary. Perfect! Ary loves to pull things out of nooks and crannies and bat around his discoveries. I set the hat in front of him and he just looks at me. So I dump them on the floor next to him.
|Oh so close! Has he chosen the winner?|
|Expectations are way too high...he needs a break from the excitement.|
|Ary to the rescue!|
|And the winner is.....Steve Warner!|
Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest. I really love doing these and it is fun when others join me. Oh, and I almost forgot! (Thanks, Barb, for asking me.) Here is Steve's caption.
