I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

www.americanlegends.info

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

Thanks,
David

LONDON - The moon darkened, reddened, and turned shades of gray and orange Saturday night during the first total lunar eclipse in nearly three years, thrilling stargazers and astronomers around the world.

The Earth's shadow took over six hours to crawl across the moon's surface, eating it into a crescent shape before en-gull-fing it completely in a spectacle at least partly visible on every continent.

It was a Lunar eclipse, NOT a Solar one...sshhht, you bird-brains... and it's over now!! You missed it, and now you're just burning your beady little eyes out!!!

I like Brian's the best.

Of course, I've got to try too, such is my competitive nature.

" Gordon arrived too late. Now he'd never be able to save them from the anti-vangull paint."

Or

" Maverick prepared for another surprise flypast. Top Gull would always be his favourite film."

It's no surprise at all that my favourites come from the lightning-quick minds of some of my favourite bloggers: Brian, Homo Escapeons, Cherrypie. Now to narrow them down...

my vote goes to Daphne "Which of you jokers said plenty more fish in the sea?"

Brian, many people found your caption funny!
You can either copy and print the drawing or I can send you one. I did it on the Corel Painter.

I think it would be a lot more fun to receive something in the mail. I'll send you my mailing address.
Thanks so much.

Cream,
I received it in the mail today. It looks wonderful. Thank you very much.
Now to find an appropriate frame. Something in a broken tile mosaic, perhaps. :)
