Blogophilia Week 12.14 – Something in the Air

This is Ecrits Blogophilia Week 12 of our 14th year!

Well, if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
I’ve seen your face before my friend
But I don’t know if you know who I am
Well, I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off that grin,
I know where you’ve been
It’s all been a pack of lies

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
Well, I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
And I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord

“In the Air Tonight” ~ Phil Collins

Happy Memorial Day – We honor those who lost their lives serving the USA!

Week 11.14 Jacket Winner

Happy Memorial Day, Earthlings! Hope you have a nice holiday weekend of warm weather and bbqs!! Congratulations are in order for Christopher Mitchell, who power hikes his way to the top of the summit to claim the jacket! Christine Wichman is momentarily distracted as she enjoys her busy social schedule, but you can best believe she is digging into reclaim the leather! Lika Saliscente-Phipps is busy whipping up a delicious Memorial Day weekend menu, while Dia Jade hits the treadmill to break her astounding steps record once again! Irene Melgoza is baking up some delicious holiday muffins as Tyler Myrth packs his bags for another fun visit to OKC! Only two weeks remain in the season so now’s the time to make your moves! And now we are left pondering … who will wear the jacket next week?

Last week’s topic was submitted by Jay Sole!!
Our nimble footed mailman Jay sprinted out of sight and (temporarily) out of mind to his fellow Blogophilians! Nobody thought to guess he was the culprit behind the topic, so he piles on all 6 points!

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

Last week’s picture was submitted by Michael Wayne Engeseth!!
Michael blended into the scenery as he explored the lush green forest! His amazing camouflage skills prevented anyone from spotting him amongst the ferns, therefore he takes home the jackpot of 6 points!

Marvin’s secret picture bonus criteria was “Wander!”
As Christopher Mitchell wandered down the meandering path, his thoughts also wandered (which is how he gets his fantastic writing ideas)! He is the only one to correctly nail the phrase, so Chris scoops up all 6 points plus an additional point for including in the content of his blog! Well done!

Now, isn’t that lovely??
