Week 52.13 Jacket Winner

Congratulations to Irene Melgoza, who retains her grip on the jacket once again this week! Stormy Gail Dormire is determined and going all out to recapture the leather! Craig Fallon is right behind them, just waiting for a chance to pounce and stake his claim to the jacket! Colleen Keller Breuning and Dia Jade know it’s a long shot, but they are conspiring to upset the apple cart in this final week! Christopher Mitchell is busy with his move, but never too busy to post in Blogophilia! We appreciate your dedication as we wrap up YEAR 13 in this final week of the season and the year. Next week we begin Year 14, all points are cleared and rolled into Lifetime Points. We’re on pins and needles as we wait to see …. who will wear the jacket next week? Who will be our Season Champion?

Last week’s topic was submitted by Tyler Myrth!!
Nobody guessed it was Tyler channeling a melt down, since we all know he is all about the white powder snow and slopes! He whizzes past the crowd on his skis for a final run and piles on 6 points!

Last week’s bonus suggestions were provided by Jessica Brooke Miller and Doris Emmett! They each receive 2 points for their contributions!!

Last week’s picture was submitted by Colleen Keller Breuning!!
There was a little weird science going last week on as Colleen experimented with a wild wig and colorful makeup! Her wily disguise fools everyone, and she happily scoops up the entire cache of 6 points!

Martien’s secret picture bonus criteria was “hair raising!!”
Christopher Mitchell, Craig Fallon, Irene Melgoza and Tyler Myrth gazed at the mad scientist and hypothesized that it would take 10 cans of Aquanet to raise the hair that high! They correctly guess the secret phrase and pick up a nifty 2 points apiece!

Now, isn’t that lovely?

    Martien, I am up. My Grateful Dead prompt is “The Promised Land” in the second paragraph. I did not mention a fur coat.
