Blogophilia Week 9.14 – By the Water

This is Ecrits Blogophilia Week 9 of our 14th year!

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO OUR BLOGOPHILIA MOMS!!! Hope you are able to relax by the water… or garden, or mountain, or wherever makes you happy! ENJOY!!!

You can stay right there
When the daylights gone
Play truth or dare
And it wont take long
‘Fore you and her got nothin’ on
But water

All you really need this time of year
Is a pair of shades
And ice cold beer
And a place to sit somewhere near

“Water” by Brad Paisley

Week 8.14 Jacket Winner

Happy Mother’s Day!! Today we celebrate all the Earthling and Martian Moms out there!! May your day be filled with joy! Congratulations to Christine Wichman, who takes a huge leap of faith over the pack to claim the jacket! She proves that just a few correct guesses can catapult you to the top. Dia Jade is right behind her, and determined to reclaim the leather! Irene Melgoza is kicking into high gear in order to upset the apple cart! Lika Saliscente-Phipps is ready for some Mother’s Day pampering, and thinking a leather jacket would be a sweet addition to her wardrobe! We’re halfway through the season now, and all it takes is a correct guess to pile on the points! So the question burning in our minds now is … who will wear the jacket next week?

Last week’s topic was submitted by Michelle King!!
It was a proud moment indeed for Michelle as she realized that nobody had guessed she was behind the topic! She scoops up the entire kit and caboodle of 6 points for staying undercover!

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

Last week’s picture was submitted by Colleen Keller Breuning!
Christine Wichman had a hunch that Colleen was the photographer behind the sunset silhouettes this week! She correctly tags her as the culprit, and they both scoop up a nifty 4 points!

Marvin’s secret picture bonus criteria was “Three Amigos!!”
Christine Wichman enjoyed the Cinco De Mayo celebrations with her amigas this week, and her mind was on all things Mexican (enchiladas and margaritas anyone?)!! She is the only one to correctly guess the picture phrase, and she hits the jackpot with a whooping 6 points!!

Now, isn’t that lovely??
