Prompt -- for Writers and / or Illustrators:

When I asked my hubby whether the next item should be "B," "C" or "P" -- he suggested "P" but I have other Sandra Boynton to share for "P" -- but then he said, "Oh, now  you have my brain going down one of those weird roads.  I suppose you won't find something like, say, 'Billy Bob's Big Bad Bunny,' will you?"  Rather than hunt around to see if there is such a thing already out there in the ether -- I throw it out as a Prompt for Writer's and Artists ... "Should you accept this assignment ..." and complete it before the end of April -- come on back and share your link to it in the InLinkz below ... If you are here after the end of April (or if you finish up your creation after the end of April 2016), go ahead and share the link in the comments section.  :-D

Boynton & The Bacon Brothers present:

Sandra Boynton, a clever cartoonist who gained fame in the 1970s with her clever cartoons featuring pigs and other animals, brings us a film "for all ages, except 43" explains the blurb at YoutTube.  Let's enjoy!

Comment Challenge

How many ants are in the Backyard BBQ?
No prize for playing along with this "commenting challenge" -- just some fun, I hope :D

However the Call to Action options can be found here -- two can be  answered in the Comments Section here or via the InLinkz section at the end of the post ... I wanted to set the closing date as May 7 but InLinkz would not let  me run a link list for that long ... so the deadline is May 1 ...

I decided to be nice to you today and keep this blog post nice and short (compared to yesterday) -- you never know what tomorrow will bring -- LOL!

Have a Great One!  And Thanks for visiting.  Hope to C you tomorrow!

(Today's "2" comes to us from the font Goudy Stout and the digital scrapping kit "0116CelebrateCSD" from Club Scrap ... Do you remember the Baker on Sesame Street :D   ??)


  1. Had to look up burgoo. Thanks for the new word.

    1. I vaguely remember that there is a distinction between a burgoo and a bog -- one usually contains squirrel **shudder** so when the various fire houses have their annual burgoo fund raiser -- I ask -- LOL!
