Your Brain, Our Photos

8 Aug

I’m planning/researching a fantastic Grab Bag Special for you, but the photo is too wonderful to sit idly by on my hard drive until I get my act together.  Therefore, you get a sneak peak.

Not so fast!  There’s a catch.  In order to see this unbelievable snapshot of family history you have to give us something*.

A Caption.

A wonderful, apt, clever, witty, spunky caption.  Or, something boring.  That’s fine, too.

Here’s what you need to know about the picture:  the woman in the middle is my mother.  That’s it.  Go!  Be clever!  Submit!  Multiple entries welcome!

Special Note to Our Mother:  Mom, you may compete.  In fact, you should.  And, if you are inclined, you could even look up the “source documents” for us.

Alright, everybody ready now?  Do you have your Caption Caps on?  Here it is:

Your Best Caption Here

*If you’ve gotten this far you’ve probably already seen the picture.  So, get to writing.  Okay, we admit we’ve got no power.  You’re on the honor system.  But I will say this:  Please.

    Onlookers Betty & Letty offer “straw hats” and sandwiches in response to this amazing feat.

    Shoot–that should say “while wearing a smile.”

    “Look at what I pulled out of the toilet!”

    So many captions come to mind – but first I need to say that I needed to exercise censorship before I sent a box of photos home with my daughter who reasoned “My scanner is so much faster and better than yours!” I think she knew more about what was in that box than I did. I must be more careful in the future.

    If I only had a nickel for every time I made a fool of myself entertaining Golden Age.
    If I only had a brain, this would never have happened.
