Word of the Day

This tree in my backyard is what I see when I look out my office window.  It is so full of blossoms, that when you walk under it, you hear a "humming".  The "humming" is hundreds of bees that are busy sucking the pollen out of all the blossosms.  This reminded me of the children's, "Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree".  For our new Word Joust Game, I want you to tell me what YOU see when you look out your window.  Of course we are going for humor and creativity here, so you really don't have to see what you write - more important, just be creative.  If you would like, you can follow the pattern of the song below, or just make up something yourself.  Doesn't have to be in song format.  Happy Jousting!
I looked out the window and what did I see?
Popcorn popping on the apricot tree.
Spring has brought me such a nice surprise!
Blossoms popping right before my eyes!
I can take an armful and make a treat -
A popcorn ball that will smell so sweet.
It wasn't really so, but it seemed to me,
Popcorn popping on the apricot tree.

Card Writers

Recently I have been frequenting the card aisle at the store. I've bought Valentine's cards, birthday cards, etc. Sometimes I start laughing, and even laugh until I cry. As a follow up to the last game, and our long winter, I would like you to cheer us all up. Your assignment for this game is to choose one of the following pictures and write the text for a card that features the photo. In your entry, please write the letter of the picture you chose to use. You can decide the occasion for the card you make. For example, it could be a birthday card, or a St. Patrick's day card, or a sympathy card, or any other "card occasion". The winner's entry will be featured on this blog as a photo card. :D Don't ask me why I chose all old ladies.... lol I don't know, I just thought they would make good cards. :) Obviously I'm looking for a humorous caption.
