Blogophilia Week 5.14 – Are We There Yet?

This is Ecrits Blogophilia Week 5 of our 14th year!

You’re sick of hangin’ around and you’d like to travel
Get tired of travelin’, you want to settle down
I guess they can’t revoke your soul for tryin’
Get out of the door and light out and look all around

Sometimes the light’s all shinin’ on me
Other times, I can barely see
Lately, it occurs to me
What a long, strange trip it’s been

Truckin’, I’m a goin’ home
Whoa, whoa, baby, back where I belong
Back home, sit down and patch my bones
And get back truckin’ on

…The Grateful Dead

Week 4.14 Jacket Winner

April Showers bring May Flowers! We can only hope that’s true! Congrats to Dia Jade, as she holds onto the leather jacket for yet another week in Blogophilia! But look out, Stormy Gail Dormire has slowly and steadily climbed the peak, and she’s within a mere point of grabbing that brass ring (errr jacket)!! Christine Wichman and Michelle King are admiring the beautiful spring flowers and meditating to find the right guesses to propel them to the lead! Irene Melgoza and Lisa Conrad are collaborating and plotting their next moves to take over the world! Enjoy the lovely spring weather, Earthlings, as we ponder the question… who will wear the jacket next week?

Last week’s topic was submitted by Joleene Naylor!!
Joleene has had her nose to the grindstone working on her mother’s tribute book, so nobody suspected she was behind the sunshine and daisies! She eludes their guesses and hits the jackpot with 6 points!

Last week’s bonus suggestions were provided by Tyler Myrth and Rebecca Grusendorf! They each receive 2 points for their contributions!!

Last week’s picture was submitted by Michelle King!!
Aha! Michelle, Michelle, how does your garden grow? With sunshine, daisies and busy bees, and nobody guessed thee! Therefore, she takes home a wheelbarrow full of 6 points!

Marvin’s secret picture bonus criteria was “busy bee!!”
We had two busy bees who were right on target – Irene Melgoza and Stormy Gail Dormire!! They both nail the phrase with their stingers intact, collecting a nifty 4 points apiece! Stormy gathers an additional point for including the phrase in her blog content!

Now, isn’t that lovely??

**THE GUESSING GAME**Who and What do you guess on????
