Mummy was so pleased that she didn't throw away those old green curtains.

So - time to pick a winner!

I must admit, as always there were two or three that made me grin widely or even chuckle! ;-) So I've picked three - in ascending order -

At Number 3 -
Domino wrote:"I don't want that silly ass. I want that picture of Betty Grable."
:lol:

Number 2 -
Anita Bensoussane wrote:"May I have the donkey, please? Since my pet chinchillas disappeared overnight, I don't feel like keeping real animals anymore."
:lol: :lol:

But the winner this time is Nigel, with his quite short caption, which tickled me because it was so simple and to the point -
Moonraker wrote:Mummy was so pleased that she didn't throw away those old green curtains.


This appealed to my daft sense of humour. :-D

Well done Nigel...I'm afraid its your turn to find an illustration to caption!! :lol:

I have left the original caption as it appealed to the wicked side of my sense of humour!

When I was above myself, I was a curious pair.
My lower feet still trod the ground; my uppers trod the air.
I said I must come down a peg, I know not where I stand.
So, reaching up, I pulled my leg and took myself in hand.

Haven't you realised by now that fashion doesn't keep you warm.

(Not sure anything will top the original caption though, the PC brigade would be in fits)
If I could live here on this secret island always and always and always, and never grow up at all, I would be quite happy
