Smiley here


Time for colorful, wacky, wonderful fun, folks. I just won this month's contest on MG Higgins' blog. If you haven't visited, it is a delightful place to drop in.
The children's writer and artist has done a series of colored-pencil drawings called Veggie Puns. Guess the name of the artwork and you win a laser print. My brain cells were working and I won this one. But I think I shall make you find the answer on her site. Or you can give me your best guess. (P.S. Of course, I can't give away my new print, which hasn't even arrived yet, but if anyone should guess the punful title, I will send a book from several I'd like to pass along. Honor system, since you can't look for the answer already on her site!)
And while we are having fun, check out Talking Potatoes for a belly laugh. This site is especially a hoot for children's writers, parents and kids.
Sometimes silliness is the best medicine.

I'm guessing eggplant? and I could definitely use a bout of silliness. especially after today when the a/c went out in our van! Sweat!

Really fun idea. I guess I'll have to put my thinking cap on.

We have a nimble-footed winner! Donna has danced around the winning answer, which is Irish Fig.
Ms Higgins wondered if this one was easier than others she has posted. And, like Barrie, I at first thought of an eggplant, than recognized the fig and had my lightbulb moment.
Donna, I have a book for you!
Wishing everyone a playful day. If you have any sites that give you a smile, pass them on, pls.

I never even knew there was such a thing as an Irish fig -- and I'm Irish!!

Donna said...

It's a pun on Irish jig, right Pat? I've got figs on my mind, since I ate two from our tree this morning. Is that cheating?

Robyn said...

Hmm Guess I got here too late. *stomps foot* Congrats on winning Tricia!:)

PJ Hoover said...

It is wonderful!!!!!

Rick Daley said...

Darn, I was going to guess "Dancing to the Beet."

What do beets look like, anyway? Aren't they similar to that fig?

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Sorry, Robyn. This was definitely an early worm day. :)

PJ: *gushing* there you are hauling bricks across country and stopped in!

Rick: Welcome, I'm so honored to have you. About those beets......blood red and kinda hairy. But Dancing to the Beet is darn good. I wonder if you have pre-empted MG Higgins' next artwork?

Donna said...

I wanna see a dancing beet. MG, can you draw us one?

MG Higgins said...

I have a plan for a beet drawing, but it has nothing to do with dancing. I may change my mind, though, because that is a darned good idea. Thanks!

Eileen said...

Dang. And I knew the right answer too.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Hi Eileen, so cool you dropped by!

Yat-Yee said...

Very punny. My daughter would love it. Thanks for the pointer to MGHiggins blog.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Ha! Thanks Yat-Yee and welcome!
