And the Wieners Are …

Good morning from Sherrie!  Before we announce the winners of the caption contest, please take a moment to mark 6/6 and 6/9 on  your calendars.  Those are the dates of Edith’s two-part interview hosted by Mary Jo, in conjunction with the release of Edith’s His Dark and Dangerous Ways.

Hotdog It’s time to list the wieners of the caption contest.  The Wenches had a hard time deciding, because all the captions were so great.  But they finally made their choices, after much deliberation.  (Some of the Wenches included their own comments with their choices) Each winner gets an autographed book.  Thanks to everyone who participated!  This was so much fun that the Wenches are talking about doing it again at a future date. 

Winners, please send your mailing addresses to me, Sherrie, and I’ll pass them on to the respective Wenches.  And now, here are the Wenches’ choices:

Wench1 Wench #1 – Loretta

Winner:  Cheryl C.  Caption:  This is my father’s land, and you Lord Scoundrel are not welcome here.

Loretta’s comment:  I had an awful time choosing a winner because they were all good and several captions in particular had me laughing helplessly, tears streaming down my face.  But at last I chose my winner.  Loretta, still laughing

Wench2 Wench #2 – Susan/Sarah

Winner: Cheryl C.  Caption: I  have no wish to be a "lady." I can manage and work this estate as well as any man

Susan/Sarah’s comment: I laughed out loud at Cheryl C’s great caption for the photo of me at two years old after a busy day of blueberry picking in upstate New York.

Wench3 Wench #3 – Jo

Winner:  Theo.  Caption:  *sigh* Isn’t he just the dreamiest seven-year-old you’ve ever seen?

Jo’s comment:  How could I resist such a romantic caption, and indeed, I do look very eager to please!  This session  had about 50 thumbnails — whatever they called them back then — and in some I was scowling or even crying.  I wonder what happened to them?

Wench3a Ah, I found a scan of another.  I probably should have put this one in the contest, despite its poor condition.  I’m sure some of you would have had fun with those fingers!

Wench4 Wench #4 – Susan/Miranda

Winner:  Sue.  Caption:   Despite her mother’s admonition not to, Lady Jane insisted on hanging around with the village children.

Wench5 Wench #5 – Pat

Winner: RfP.  Caption:  The acolyte mounted the stone dais to secure the captive’s wrists to the ancient iron hooks.  It was a strangely familiar moment.  Despite her city clothes and new responsibilities, it wasn’t that different from staking a goat on a new patch of grass.  Stifling a giggle, she nodded to the crowd to begin the chant.

Pat’s Comment:  I couldn’t resist this one since I’m toying with a way out story involving pre-Mayans and time travel.

Wench6 Wench #6 – Mary Jo 

Winner:  Suzy Stutz.  Caption:  Well, darlin’ I could tell it was you by your lovely smile … and the way that you were looking the opposite direction from the photographer.

Wench7 Wench #7 – Edith

Winner:  Cheryl C.  Caption:  Yes, yes, I know that I am the prettiest girl of the Season, but can we please just get on with this?

So there you have it.  Seven winners, seven great captions.  And don’t forget Edith’s interview 6/6 and 6/9.   By the way, if this post looks funky or the spacing is weird, it’s because Typepad is being very strange today.  Case in point:  I cannot remove the mysteriously stray sentence, below.  Perhpaps Suzy Stutz will enjoy seeing her name in print not once, but twice! 

Winner:  Suzy Stutz.

  1. Delightful captions! Congratulations to the winners.
    Since I’m devoid of creativity especially right now, I didn’t even try to formulate anything. But I did get Jo’s picture right. Maybe I would have gotten a few other wenches’ pictures as well if I’d applied myself. This definitely reminded me of my baby pictures and I wondered if anyone would “make” me now.

  11. The only one I got right was Pat and that was because the woman behind her looks just like her or she looks just like the woman behind her. I’m assuming that woman is Pat’s mother. Didn’t all parents make you stand for your photo staring into the sun? This was great fun.
