LOOK OUT...

...the closing date of the latest CAPTION COMPETITION is fast approaching!

Well, actually, it's been and gone (last Thursday)! BUT, because (a) I only ever mentioned the closing date in a comment to the post, (b) completely failed to remind you, and (c) know that at least one reader -- yes, you, Gill! - said she was going to enter, I've decided to allow everyone a couple more days' grace...

The closing date has, therefore, now been re-scheduled to midnight on Tuesday 12 February.

The tension is certainly mounting, isn't it? It's almost as thrilling as those long waits while they announce the votes on 'The X Factor'!

I was wondering what was happening... no results posted! I was so dreadfully UNinspired and only came up with one ridiculous caption, but I can't help myself - I'm still looking forward to the results!
Now let me think... see if I can't come up with something better....

I always have loads of stupid captions coming into my head straightaway.I'm not sure whether this is a good thing or yet another sign of a wasted life.
