It's blog editor Leslie Lang here with the winners of our caption contest.
Here is the picture for which we asked you to supply a caption:
You'll recall that Richard asked me to choose the winner, ostensibly so he wouldn't be swayed by friends or family. But now I'm thinking he just remembered how hard it is to pick a winner!
We had lots of entries, and there were some really clever ones. It was hard, but I narrowed them down. I stripped the names off my top four, showed Richard and tried to get him to help me decide which one was the best one.
He read them, laughed and announced a four-way tie.
So here are the four winning captions and the winners' names. They are not in any order (except alphabetical):
• And the four little piggies cried 'Auwe!' all the way home - Maia Nilsson
• Dinner on the run - Patrick Kahawaiolaa
• Finally, Porky was able to fulfill a lifelong dream: to recreate the cover of the Abbey Road album - Baron Sekiya
• Hey Ralph… are they stopping for us, or did that oil thing peak out? - Wally Andrade
Congratulations to Maia, Patrick, Baron and Wally. If you are on the Big Island, please call Richard at 960-1057 and make arrangements to pick up your prize: a box of fresh, mixed Hamakua Springs vegetables.
If you are not located here, then we send you our heartiest congratulations, and unless you have plans to come to the Big Island we'll have to leave it at that (as we mentioned in the first post; sorry!).
