Blogophilia Week 47.13 – Wall of Confusion

This is Ecrits Blogophilia Week 47 of our 13th year!

People moving out, people moving in
Why, because of the color of their skin
Run, run, run but you su
re can’t hide

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth
Vote for me and I’ll set you free
Rap on, brother, rap on

Well, the only person talking about love thy brother is the preacher
And it seems nobody’s interested in learning but the teacher
Segregation, determination, demonstration, integration
Aggravation, humiliation, obligation to our nation

Ball of confusion
Oh yeah, that’s what the world is today
Woo, hey, hey

…The Temptations

Week 46.13 Jacket Winner

Happy Sunday! We hope you enjoyed a little freedom of choice last week during Writer’s Choice week! Congrats to Craig Fallon, who maintains his hold on the jacket this week! Christopher Mitchell remains just one point behind the leader, and he’s honing up his guessing skills so watch out! Lika Saliscente-Phipps and Stormy Gail Dormire are bundling up as the cold weather blasts them, coveting that cozy jacket to warm them up! Don’t rule out Christine Wichman or Dia Jade, they have a few tricks up their sleeve in their quest for leather! We are halfway through the season, so there’s time to pick up the pace and take the lead! The question we want answered now is … who will wear the jacket next week?

Last week’s topic and bonus suggestions were Writer’s Choice – therefore, no additional points were given out! Likewise, last week’s picture was a Marvin picture, therefore no additional points were awarded!

Martien’s secret picture bonus criteria was “Bear Witness!”
Woop woop! There is BACON in da house this morning, and Commander K is ecstatic! Nobody guessed the secret bonus phrase so we are keeping the points and using them to barter for MORE bacon! It’s been a while since we stumped the crafty Blogophilians!

Now, isn’t that lovely?
