Saturday is Caption Day – 30 June 2012….


You know the drill by now right?  I give you a picture and you give me a caption to go with it.... This photo is of Miss Frugal's obvious delight (not) at the very un-frugal children's cocktail we bought her in a Spanish bar last week.  Considering the price of it and the fact it was delivered to her by a very handsome looking waiter, I would have expected a little more.... something! … [Read more...]
