Caption it and Posts of the Week

These two chairs sit on the balcony outside my bedroom. It's a comfy place to sit, some summer evenings but lately these seats have just been hanging around collecting snow.

"Great dinner, Fred. I'm stuffed." or
"I don't mind sitting out here, but why do you always make me sit under the drip line?"

Heheheh! Love those rounded snow bellies!

Canadian doctors claim snowman obesity is now reaching epidemic proportions.

Gosh, thanks Hilary! I love being in such great company!

"Oh dear, I think my water just broke!"

June said...

"Every winter I get so fat!"

"Oh, me too, but I'm not concerned; when the warm weather comes it all just seems to melt off me."

Zuzana said...

Oh what a great picture, you have got a lot of snow.;))
I have no good captions as of yet, but I might return with one.;)
Congratulations to everyone mentioned here today, I truly loved "Maddie and Me", that was such a touching post.;)
Have a great midweek dear Hilary,

That makes a great picture! Imagine sinking down into that icy cold! Brrr.

Cricket said...

That picture is great. Honestly, if those were on my porch, I think I couldn't resist the temptation to dress them up with snowman faces... perhaps a beer bottle on the armrest... we'll call it Two Old Friends

Punchy. It's early still :-P

Cricket said...

p.s. - I thought it was Tuesday 'til I stopped by here. As I said, punchy...

Moannie said...

I love that quirky picture of snow cushions.
'That was such a good meal, but one more snowflake and I'll burst'

Thank you for choosing my post, Hilary...and in such good company, I have been mooching around quite a bit and read many of them, now I'm off to read the rest.

Brian Miller said... the pic...def looks like a couple of rounded bellies sitting there talking...

Mental P Mama said...

"Do you feel a draft?"

Congrats to all the POTW folks!

Unknown said...

"Who knew snow ice cream could be so filling?"


"I know you said you wouldn't go back inside and be with her till hell froze over, but,'s July 4th."

Thanks for the blog suggestions, Hilary!

Lori said...

"I bet my snow belly is bigger than your snow belly."

Congrats to all the POTW picks...I look forward to making my rounds as time allows. Happy hump day Hilary. XX

Leah J. Utas said...

"Honey, if we're really quiet no one will even notice."

Thanks for the POTW. I'll let Mike know it was a hit.

Shrinky said...

OMG, I am so thrilled! Thank you for such an honour, I can't begin to tell you how much my toes are curling right now, you've made my week!!

Caption: "Nora couldn't help but to notice a chill had crept into their relationship, as of late."

Rebecca said...

Brrr cold but pretty

Bossy Betty said...

Awwww....thanks for the shout-out! Maddie, full of cortizone and antibiotics thanks you too!!!!

Jayne said...

"Is this what Mom meant when she said, 'If you don't get up off your behinds you're gonna freeze like that in time'?"

Elizabeth Grimes said...

I think June wins the caption! Can't wait to read all the posts. Congrats to everyone!

MEMEME Thank you soooooo much! Gosh! A good laugh, wow!

"Why yes, sitting in these does seem to take the edge off those hot flashes."

I was awarded the Stylish Blogger award and am passing it on to you. It's always fun to learn a few things about someone.

My computer is unavailable right now so I am not gettign through the blogs very fast at all but I will definitely be visiting all of these posts.

Anvilcloud said...

That's quite a pile of snow for your area. Is it mostly gone already. Back when we moved to that area from Montreal, I could hardly believe the less rigorous winters. Now that we have moved from Sarnia to Ottawa, we're back to real and longer winters. Still not as much snow (or so it seems) as you guys this winter.

messymimi said...

The only thing that picture says to me is "Burp!" LOL

Frank Baron said...

Mona and Madge, rivals since that first day at the factory, stubbornly refuse to be the first to fold.

The Grandmother said to the Grandfather, isn't it a good idea to watch the grass ripening.

Nancy said...

Love the picture and loved the first and second comments! They look like well-fed friends.

Anonymous said...

I just realized it was Wednesday! Can't wait to read the POTW. My caption: "So when are you due?" I'm sure someone else already thought of that one :)

Rosaria Williams said...

So many good ones; so little time.

Linda said...

Love those snow-stuffed chairs. Such interesting texture on the snow.

Stephanie Faris said...

All of our outdoor furniture looks similar to that right now!

Wendy said...

Love that first caption. However, I can't think of anything even remotely funny. Are those cat tracks up one chair?

Anonymous said...

What a nice lift my day! Thank you, friend.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Wow, that is A LOT of snow on your patio. Yikes.

Thanks for more fabulous blogs to read. I loves Shrinky's "Snowdrops" post too.

Cheers, jj

Anonymous said...

Wonderful chairs - I've got some shots like that too.

Thanks for all the good reading tips.

Hilary said...

Thank you everyone for playing along. Your captions were fantastic! I see I'm going to have to do this more often.

Thanks also for always supporting the POTW. You folks are the best!

CiCi said...

"Santa and Mrs Santa will resume their Christmas duties when the snow melts."

Dan said...

Better late than never; some captions may sound similar... but it's just a coincidence.

I've forgotten my New Years resolution... on getting fit.

Hibernating deck chairs

I'm stuffed!

My water pills aren't working properly.

Did you lose weight?

You know, you're beginning to look jolly.

I think it's time we go inside, I feel a little chilly.

imbeingheldhostage said...

GREAT picks again Hilary. I finally made it to Anvil Cloud after running into several errors, and then couldn't comment due to... errors. Gotta love technology :-)
Thanks for the suggestions, I thoroughly enjoyed all of them I could fit in to this morning.

Indrani said...

Cool shot... :)
"Chairs for ghosts!"

My other blog frozen moments have pictures seeking captions. Do have a look.

Sarah Knight said...

Oh that photo is hilarious!
Sad, for all that snow - but hilarious!
; )

SandyCarlson said...

Your photo sure does recommend those chairs as a good, sturdy purchase! Hard to believe summer will return and the snow will give you back your seats!

Unknown said...

No caption comes to mind, Hilary. But what a mountain of snow.
