I’m sorry, I wanted to pick these out personally but it’s been quite a week. And each of them made me laugh. So I couldn’t pick faves, I just couldn’t do it! So picked … #18 Shannon and #102 (Terry K)

Original Post:
Sometimes I amuse myself by captioning animal pics.

“Hi. We’re cheaper than teenagers AND we will never leave a mess in your kitchen, swears. We’ll clean up every little crumb!”

(Now you, and I’ll be drawing names from the comments, winners can pick a book from my backlist…)
