Me and My Shadow

My shadow

This is a picture I took of my shadow while at the beach last month. I think it’s kind of a funny picture.

And I’m hoping you can make it funnier.

Leave a caption in the comments.

The person with the best caption gets my undying gratitude. Whatever that means.

Have fun and stay safe!

Caption Contest Monday: Sneaky Santa

I see this painting every time I eat at one of our local restaurants.

And every time I see it I think “What’s Santa up to?”

Maybe you can help.

What do you think this sneaky Santa has on his mind? What’s he up to?

Leave your guess in the comments. The winner receives a virtual fist bump and my gratitude.

Have fun and stay safe!

Caption Contest Monday: Penguins

Penguins

This picture is from the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga, TN. It is feeding time for the penguins.

But I wonder–what are they thinking?

Leave your best caption.

The winner will receive a virtual fist bump and my gratitude.

Have fun and stay safe!

Caption Contest Monday: Devil in Disguise

 

devil in disguise

We live in Harriman, TN. The only high school is Harriman High School, home of the Harriman Blue Devils.

It has been a slight adjustment for me to cheer for the Devils. In fact, I didn’t know if I could do it. However, I overcame my initial hesistancy to begin yelling “Go Devils” with the best of them.

This picture was taken at a Harriman basketball game. My kids love their mascot. Somehow he ended up with one of their hats on his head.

But maybe that really isn’t what this picture is about at all.

That is where you come in.

Leave a caption in the comments telling us what you think is really going on in this picture.

The winner will receive my undying gratitude and virtual fist bump.

Have fun!

Caption Contest Monday: Dude Looks Like a Lady

Over the next few months our church (Lee Village Baptist Church) is cancelling our Wednesday night service on the last Wednesday of the month to get outside of our 4 walls. We will be going to various public housing communities in our area and having a block party with grilled hot dogs, chips, drinks, games, face-painting and other such fun things happening.

One of those other such things is fingernail painting.

This is a picture from our first block party that happened this past Wednesday.

The kids (and some of the adults) talked me and a few other of the men there to have our fingernails painted. It was fun in an embarrassing sort of way.

Or did something else happen?

Give me your best caption concerning what is going on in this picture.

The winner will get my undying gratitude and a virtual fist bump.

Have fun and stay safe!

Caption Contest Monday: Girl in a Box

This is a picure of Mary Hope in a box. She climbed into the box with the help of my wife in order to scare her Daddy (me).

Or did something else really happen.

Leave a caption in the comments about what might really be going on in this picture.

Whoever has the best one will receive my gratitude and a virtual fist bump.

Good luck and stay safe!

Caption Contest Monday: Turtle Man

This is a picture of me holding a turtle I caught while fishing with my wife in our backyard.

Maybe.

Maybe something else is going on.

Maybe you can help.

Leave a caption for this picture in the comment section.

The best one will receive my gratitude and a virtual fist bump.

Have fun and stay safe!

Caption Contest Monday: Clean-Shaven Matt

For those wondering why I have facial hair–the above picture is the answer. It was taken a few years ago before I grew tired of shaving my whole face.

It is also the picture that I look at whenever I think I should shave.

If I had to describe this picture in one word, that one word would be “turrible.” I know I spelled terrible wrong; it was on purpose.

With that out of the way–let’s have some fun.

Give me a psychological profile based upon just this picture.

That’s right–forget everything you know about me (my name, occupation, history, calling, everything) and tell me what’s the deal with this guy in the picture.

Winner gets a virtual fist bump and my gratitude.

Have fun and stay safe!

Caption Contest Monday: Beauty and the Beast

She's a beauty--he really wasn't a beast

This picture is from 2007 when we lived in Oakdale, TN (a very small town northwest of Knoxville). We enjoyed living there–the area is beautiful and the people friendly.

And they love football. So much that they start them out at 4 years old in full pads.

This is a picture of Noelle and Bradley at Homecoming. Noelle won Homecoming Queen for her age group and Bradley was her escort.

She was a beauty and I tried to get Bradley to play like a beast.

They both look happy in the picture, but what are they really thinking.

As always, the person with the best will receive my gratitude and a virtual fist bump.

Have fun and stay safe!

MOE!

“Noelle: I look better in red.
Bradley: I look better in red.
Girl bending over behind them: I look better in red shorts
Matt taking photo: I look better in red.”

Caption Contest Monday: Coach Matt

Coaching them up!

This picture is in honor of the ongoing Major League Baseball playoffs. Which apparently no one is watching.

My wife and I helped her sister coach the Carter Hornets Under-10 softball team this year.

We didn’t win any games, but the girls improved and had fun (I hope).

This picture was taken of me and Kristy before one of our games. But I have no idea what we were saying or talking about.

Maybe you can help figure it out.

Give me a caption. Make it a good one.

The winner receives my gratitude and a virtual fist bump.

Have fun and stay safe!

“Kristy: The other team’s uniforms are so classy.
