This is Ecrits Blogophilia Week 1 of our 14th year! Points are reset to zero, and all Season 4 points roll into lifetime points!

Happy anniversary baby
Got you on my mind
Happy anniversary baby
Got you on my mind

I’m so happy for you baby
Now that you’ve found somebody new
I see it in your eyes,
Lord it’s no surprise
What he can do for you

But when I look back baby
When I look back to what we had
And I know I’m countin’ good times
But there were just as many bad…

“Happy Anniversary” by Little River Band

Season 4 Year 13 Champion
Week 53.13. Jacket Winner

Congratulations to Irene Melgoza, who is our Season 4 Year 13 Champion! She pulled away from the pack and as a result, claims the coveted green leather jacket! Craig Fallon had a great season, wearing the jacket quite a few times and ending up in second place! Stormy Gail Dormire put up a mighty fight, coming close at times to regaining the lead! Dia Jade, Colleen Keller Breuning and Christopher Mitchell are excited to start the new season, and have their pens ready to write! Thank you for sticking with us in this challenging 13th year, considering COVID-19 issues and the big Facebook Note suspension! But as always, we forge ahead despite the challenges, as YOU are very treasured to those of us in the Marvin house! THANK YOU for another great year, Blogophilians! Now we wonder …. who will wear the jacket next week?

Last week’s topic was submitted by Lisa Conrad!!
Nobody saw Lisa, incognito in dark sunglasses, slip through the security line and run for her gate, eager for her vacation! She cashes in big time with all 6 points!

Last week’s bonus suggestions were provided by Christine Wichman and Christopher Mitchell! They each receive 2 points for their contributions!!

Last week’s picture was submitted by Lissa Fallon!!
Who would have guessed that Lissa *loves* snakes? (Eeeek!) Craig Fallon, that’s who! LOL we suppose he knows his wife pretty well, after all! They both pick up a nifty 4 points as a result!

Martien’s secret picture bonus criteria was “once bitten, twice shy!”
Commander K is doing his happy dance this morning, as none of the Blogophilians guessed the correct phrase! That means bacon is in the house once again this morning, and just in time for our anniversary celebration!

Now, isn’t that lovely?

VIRTUAL MEET & GREET ON ZOOM – SUNDAY, MARCH 14 at 11 AM EST!!!! For one hour only today, Violeta Falo has been asked by yours truly, Marvin Martian, if she would host a virtual meet & greet on Zoom!

No points will be scored for attending this, it’s just for fun and to have a chance for Blogophilians to “meet” face to face. It will be open for one hour only, 11 AM until Noon EST.

Go to or open your Zoom App to join the meeting. Enter the Zoom ID 294 803 3962. You will enter a “waiting room” – input your name and the host will admit you. Be sure that your video camera and audio are enabled (check the lower left bar for video/audio).

Don’t be shy…. just have fun!
