And the Winner Is...

A tie.

Between Hilary and............Hilary.


Her captions "Just Another Float in the Hay Pride Parade" and "The Bag Lady was to accompany the Cowboy on his hayride into town. Evidently, she baled." received the most votes.


Thank you all for playing along with the silliness. The Bag Lady probably should have explained the photo a little better - the lawn chair was not supposed to be there - it got caught on the trailer somehow and travelled home with the hay wagon.


For some very cool photos of last nights' lunar eclipse, check out Hilary's terrific blog

Here's one that the Bag Lady took when the moon was completely hidden...can you see it? (She doesn't have a very good camera...)



And here's one she took when the moon was first rising:


She probably should have cropped out the farm equipment in the foreground, but I guess it's too late now...

The Bag Lady has taken the comment moderation off now, so you can leave comments and actually see them. So...
Did the Bag Lady mention that she loves comments?

Great captions!

And why am I not surprised that Hilary won... twice?

And you're right, her eclipse pictures are amazing.

I just so love the moon. But I still don't think we should be spending billions of dollars to send people there. Sometimes you must really love being Canadian. :)

the Bag Lady said...

Crabby - yup, Hilary is very talented - in more ways than one!

SB - the Bag Lady loves the moon, too! And she always loves being Canadian...

Sarah said...

No way! The farm equipment gives the picture character and context! Very nice.

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, Sarah! The Bag Lady thought it looked a little messy...
she's relieved to know that it just adds character and context!!

Nice pics...missed the eclipse due to the fact that my tired self was in bed.
The farm equipment does make the pic more interesting - don't crop it out!

Thanks, missicat! Shall leave the photo as is, due to popular demand!

The Bag Lady probably would have missed the eclipse, too, if it had appeared later in the night here. It peaked around 8:30 here.

I love those comments- too bad I didn't get a chance to vote yesterday : (

keep up the entertainment!

Reb said...

Great captions, Hilary is good at that sort of thing.

Like the farm equipment too, it adds a certain hominess to the pictures ;)

the Bag Lady said...

Emily - sorry I didn't leave the post longer to give everyone a chance to vote - I'm just so impatient!! :)

Reb - All the captions were great! That was fun.
Glad you like the homey feel to the photo - the whole yard is pretty homey right now... ;)

Hilary said...

Well thanks all! It was fun to be able to participate in a captions contest, rather than host one for a change.. thanks.

And I agree with the others. I love that moonrise photo - farm equipment and all.

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, Hil. And thanks for participating in my silly contest!!

Good moon photos. The moonrise over the farm equipment is very well done and offers perspective.

Loved the caption contest.

Thanks, dfLeah!
