Oh me oh my what a day we had yesterday huh? We had a pile of comments coming in within five minutes of each other but only one FIRST COMMENTER…………..and then the guesses on the photo started popping up one after another but there was only one FIRST RIGHT GUESSER………..I’ll give you the “low down” in a minute but first:
Yep – that was the photo we had yesterday and it was a photo my Mom took from high atop Blarney Castle, in Blarney – near Cork and the River Martin, in Ireland. She snapped it just a few minutes after my Dad had joined all the many people with flu, colds, diseases, and who knows what else who lay on their backs with a guy holding on to his belt as he stuck his head down through a hole in the “floor” and kissed the BLARNEY Stone! That’s right – Dad was the brave one while Mom preferred to snap photos. Dad had prepared ahead of time to put his lips on that stone after a quadrillion other people had done the same thing – how? Well he had a “wee dram” in his pocket which he promptly swished around in his mouth and OUTSIDE his mouth (courtesy of his hankie!) after indulging in the KISS. HAHAHAHA Leave it to my Dad to be prepared. I actually used this photo on a very old post back in 2012………….here’s my Dad!
Now for the business end of things…………….WHO was my FIRST COMMENTER?? Well it was our buddy Easy Weimaraner, that’s who…….Easy this is for you buddy:
Who was the one who guessed correctly FIRST this week? She’s won it before – my friend Kolytyi !! You get this glorious award miss Csilla!
BUT, there were quite a few of you who also recognized the view from atop Blarney Castle which means we have several of these to give out today – if you were one who got it right, this is yours!
Then we have those of you who usually arrive and say “go ahead and give me a GREENIE because I never know”…………hahaha……well, if you guessed and weren’t right or didn’t know, you DO in fact get the BIG GREENIE which just happens to be the most popular award that I give out every week – so there!
Congratulations to everyone…………..that was a goodie…………..now I’ll start looking for a suitably FUN photo for NEXT Tuesday…………I’m always hoping I can fool everyone – although I have to admit, I do get excited when someone guesses too……………Thanks for playing along with me on Tuesdays!
