Here’s this week’s caption winner.

Caption Contest #5 Winner

The winning entry was submitted by Paul Barlow of Fredericksburg. 

Other notable entries were:

"Bill, I’ll need your help with this balancing act!"  submitted all the from Clarksville, TN by Jo Violette.

My personal favorite (my two judges disagreed) was submitted by Otis Rogers of Fredericksburg which was:  "Bill, with all the problems in the world, WHY is Clay Jones always picking on ME?". 

Here’s today’s cartoon.

Here’s yesterday’s cartoon (no blog yesterday because I was in scramble mode again).
