Blogophilia Week 52.13 – Melt Down

This is Ecrits Blogophilia Week 52 of our 13th year!

I won’t give up your love
Just because the last one there
I won’t give up your life
Just because it’s getting tough
So you better think about it right now
If you’re gonna back down, give it up
Pack it up

You know me well enough, you know it’s true
We’re headed for a melt down
From our love
And when you fell down, I picked you up
So baby, breack down, give in to me
Are you gonna find your heart and your key
In the lost and the found

“Melt Down” by The Animals

Week 51.13 Jacket Winner

March is one day away, and we’re getting closer to spring! Congratulations to Irene Melgoza, as she dons the coveted jacket once again this week! Stormy Gail Dormire is rising in the ranks, hoping to catch up to the leader! Dia Jade is channeling her inner warrior to fight her way to the top! Craig Fallon is digging in during the final weeks of the season, hoping to catch a break! Christopher Mitchell and Lika Saliscente-Phipps are pulling out all the stops, hoping to bring a little leather into their lives! Two more weeks left in the season, and then we begin YEAR FOURTEEN of blogging together! Until then we ponder …. who will wear the jacket next week?

Last week’s topic was submitted by David Schrader!!
Nobody seemed to notice the Caftan Cowboy aka The David lurking by the candy counter, trying to decide what to buy to satisfy his sweet tooth. He’ll take not one, not two…but a whole boatload of candy, in addition to all 6 points!

Last week’s bonus suggestions were provided by Lissa Fallon and Dahlia Ramone! They each receive 2 points for their contributions!!

Last week’s picture was submitted by Christine Wichman!!
Irene Melgoza, Lika Saliscente-Phipps and Michelle King spotted Christine snuggling in with a book and dreaming of pink cotton candy clouds. They tag her as she drifts off to dreamland, and they all pick up a nifty 2 points!

Martien’s secret picture bonus criteria was “Jacob’s Ladder!!”
Christopher Mitchell, Colleen Keller Breuning and Stormy Gail Dormire gazed at the photo and visualized the connection between heaven and Earth. They all correctly identified the secret phrase, and scoop up a cool 3 points! Stormy gets an additional point for including it in her blog content!

Now, isn’t that lovely?
