Caption Contest V winners: Warm Fuzzies all ‘Round!

Congratulations to Sal, who won Caption Contest V with this entry:

“Ah. Château La Paws Zinfandel. Good nose. Fine color. A hint of sage. Bright red cherry fruit. But does she ever share with me?”

Second place was a tie between Christina Meade for her Tom Paxton parody: Well, a preacher will preach and a teacher will teach and a miner will dig in the mine. I read the books, trusting in my looks and a sniffin’ my goblet of wine…

and Stacy Baker for: “Ma chérie, I find myself drawn to you – you smell like delicate flowers on a warm spring day,” – – noise in background – – pause – – “Aww, ma!! I don’t want a bath – – I’m talking to my girlfriend!!!”

And the Jack Beck discretionary prize goes to Teresa Ward for: “Hmmm…nice bouquet, but should I lap and spit or lap and swallow?”

Warm fuzzies are the only reward for the second place winners, but we are pleased to inform Teresa (a resident of the Big Stone Gap area) that she has won a kitten!!!!

Accordion Roll, Please: Caption IV Winners, Caption V Starts

….and the winner of Caption Contest IV is: Erin Dalton, for her hilarious entry: Pay me and I will put the instrument down slowly. Otherwise, I will try and play. Judges reported smiling, laughing and guffawing.

St. Martin’s Press will send Erin a free copy of The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap.

In second place were Kathye Fetsko Petrie with “Accordion Crimes” and David Volk (father of the accordion-wielding child) with “Best pop-up book ever!” I tried to organize free accordion lessons for them both, but as they live several hundred miles apart, well, David and Kathye, you’ll have to make do with the warm glow of accomplishment, I’m afraid.

Now, on to Caption Contest V: this one closes in just one week, so get your entries in early!
