The Shorts Are On Their Way Again!

Despite being a little under the weather, Esmeralda insisted on helping to ship The Freakin' Green Elf Shorts to Ms. Scarlet.

Scarlet, I have a tracking number. If you're interested, send me an email.

First The Shorts, Now This?

You may remember the bronzed gentleman who featured so prominently (and reluctantly) in my , Freakin' Green Elf Shorts Caption Contest. Our town is inundated by smoke from the horrific Camp Fire in Paradise, California. As my youngest granddaughter and I drove past our friend yesterday, we noticed someone had provided him with his own mask, so we stopped to take a snap.

This was AJ's photo:

I don’t know who is wearing the jingle-bell shorts, but as long as the car is fixed I don’t care.

And this was Scarlet's winning caption:

There's nothing like a good fiddle under my bonnet with a few chums.

This is the second time that Ms. Scarlet has won the detestable polyestables:

Congratulations, Scarlet. We can't wait to see what you do with them this time.

And the FGES continue their journey around the globe. Where will they go next?

FGES Deadline Looms!

The deadline to enter your captions for AlpoJones' Freakin' Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition is a second before the end of Halloween.

There have been a few entries, but not nearly as many as anticipated. Don't miss your chance to possess the questionable polyesterables.

See AJ's captionable photo HERE.

If you're on Tumblr, send your caption to AJ via Tumblr's direct message feature. If you're not on Tumblr, sign up! It's easy, and all it costs is your immortal soul.

If you can't hang with Tumblr, you may leave your caption on MY POST (not this post - the one in the link) and I will forward it to AJ. Please be sure to specify that your comment is a caption entry.

Happy captioning!

Official AlpoJones Freakin' Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition

Hey, folks. As you probably saw here previously, the current winner of the Freakin' Green Elf Shorts Competition, AlpoJones, has put up her official Shorts picture for you all to try your hands at captioning in the hopes of winning the vile cherished items.

Whether you have or haven't seen my previous post, don't bother looking for it. I've taken it down in order to avoid some confusion, but we'll get to that in a moment. For now, here is the picture:

Pretty nifty, eh? And HERE is the link to the picture on AJ's Tumblr.

Here's where things might get a little tricky. Tumblr is a strange beast. The good news is you don't have to be a Tumblr user to use the "Submit" function from the menu on AJ's Tumblr. So that's one option for leaving a caption.

On the bad news side of things, even if you are on Tumblr, apparently you can only make comments directly on someone's posts from within your own dashboard. So if you're a Tumblr-er AND you're following AJ, but you missed that particular post, you'd have to scroll down forever to find it - depending on how many people you follow and how prolific they are (and AJ alone is pretty darned prolific).

It seems that your best option for leaving a caption from within Tumblr is via their direct messaging system, assuming AJ has her settings such that she allows messages from non-followers, which I have advised her to do (if she hadn't already). Confused yet? Me too!

Therefore, if you're not already on Tumblr and don't want to be bothered getting an account there, or if you ARE on Tumblr but can't be arsed with all their weird restrictions, then please feel free to leave your caption submissions right here on this post, and I will forward them to AJ.

AJ has established a deadline for submissions of midnight on Halloween, which of course is Wednesday, October 31st, 2018 - that being the midnight between All Hallow's Eve (Wednesday) and All Saints Day (Thursday).

To retiterate:

1. Deadline: 10/31/2018 at 11:59:59 PM PDT.

2. Submit directly to AJ on Tumlbr, or right here.

Happy captioning, everybody. Now GET TO IT!
