    Tee hee! Made me smile! Love the pictures and your usual quick turn on a phrase, or a word, in this case.
    I’m LEAPING for joy because school was just cancelled due to a snow and ice storm. Hurray !:)

    You know, when my goldfish made the leap, they fell to their death on the green shag carpet. Stupid fish.

    To add your contest to the sidebar, go to Appearance, Widgets – and drag the Image widget to your sidebar. It might complain, but just ignore it.
    Click on the little arrow to open up the dialogue box.
    From your Media Library, copy the Image URL of the photo of your jacket. Paste it in the box under Image URL. You might have to play around with the Image Width and Height numbers to make the photo look right. (You don’t want the jacket to look fat…)
    Copy the URL of your post and paste it in the Link URL box.
    In the caption box, enter a brief explanation, and tell people to click on the photo to read the post about the contest. Then click Save.

        Me too. And I am terrified to see what they did to my beloved Lorax (which I happen to have memorized when reading it to my niece and nephew every night for years). Terrified.

        But then I am going into mourning shortly anyway. I just learned that one of my childhood crushes, Davy Jones, died. Wasn’t he just about 12 years old?

          I know, Elyse It’s bound to be all PC’d up.

          I just found out about Davy Jones! One of my employees came back to tell me “wasn’t he from your time?” Um, yeah, I WATCHED the SHOW a lot, but he was WAY older than me. May he rest in peace.

            Yes, he was about 13 years older than me when the show was on (and afterwards, probably too, come to think of it). Then that was a HUGE gap. Now, not so much!

            I’m sure he’s singing “Here we come …”

    Goodness, how long did you work on this? What dedication, what leapishness!
    You really have a knack for fun games and contests. Why, I think this is a whole new business venture opportunity—Blog Training for Fun and Fewer Snoring Readers. There might even be money to be had.

      Where?? Where’s the money, Sandy??? Cuz I haven’t been able to see any around these parts. It’s amazing(ly stupid) how much time I waste on this stuff that doesn’t pay any of my bills. Grumble, grumble, grumble.

    I am sorely disappointed that any test using this play on words would exclude me. While you have been diligent in linking the pictures you chose to the words, you have left out the most important and obvious hint, i.e., a picture of me. I trust that in 2016 you will not make the same mistake.

    Leap Years aren’t supposed to make your brain hurt, are they? The only one I got right was Hop on Pop. Fingers crossed for a better success rate in 2016! 🙂

    I lied. I got a few more than that one right– it just sounds more dramatic to say I only got one correct. 😉

      Thanks for clearing that up for me. I usually try to hang out with higher=than=average intelligence blogging buddies, so I was racking my brains trying to figure out how to disassociate from you. Ha ha! Just kidding (except for when I’m not kidding.)

  13. Brilliant as always. I’ve heard 21 Leap Street was actually the working title.

    You came up with these yourself, right? Amazing, Peg.
    I’m planning on submitting a story next week. It is still a work in progress. It’s not leaping out of me quite yet.

    I wondered how long it took you to get all those images on there! Man, are you a glutton for punishment, or what? LOL Cool post, though.

      It took forever. Now I know about the photo gallery feature, however, which is sure to come in handy in the future. It’s like that saying “Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can feed himself for a lifetime.”

      Hopefully I’ll catch more than the suicidal goldfish that you and Lisa attract.
