I am hijacking my own blog today. (Would that be blog jacking?)
At any rate, the blank cartoon is from The New Yorker. Every week they have a contest to provide a caption for the blank cartoon. I started subscribing to The New Yorker after I retired in June of 2010 when everyone was talking about their articles so much on Facebook.
Then I decided to enter the caption contest and I never won. Then I made it a goal and I put a reminder in my google calendar and every single week I entered a caption. And every single week I lost. Until last week! I got an email on Wednesday while watching the old movie "For Whom the Bell Tolls" and I may have been a little bored so I went to the bathroom to answer it.
Still I was skeptical until I checked the website last night (hey, they said March 12 and it was March 12 when it was only 11:30 here.)
There it was, my name as a finalist in the caption contest. This should be enough, right? That was my goal, right? Well....maybe now I want to win!
Can you help me out? Can you vote for me and tell all your friends and neighbors to vote for me also? Here's the link Vote in Caption Contest
Thanks, I am pretty darn excited! I know, I hide it well. Even if I don't win, it was still super fun to be a finalist.
