First, a recap of the caption contest rules..........................

Rules of the game:

Winner posts a new picture, waits 24 hours...

After the 24 hours, he/she counts the number of captions, if the sum is less than ten, he/she waits another 24...

After ten captions or NO LATER THAN 48 hours, the winner of the last round declares the winner of the current round - whatever caption strikes him/her as funniest: he/she also picks a second and third place (more on that below.)

The winner of the round has 24 hours to post another picture to be captioned; if no picture within the 24 hours, (or notice posted by the winner that he/she is looking...) then second place is up, who also has 24 hours...

During breaks in the action, (between a winner being declared and the next picture posted) general discussion may take place... Moderators should be aware that a picture posting may cross with a "general discussion" type posting.

(When considering run times above please take note of Tuesday's outage, and any other long communications blackouts.)

OK. To open this new leg of the caption contest........................
What is this kitty thinking (or saying)?
(Or the fella with the club in his hands, for that matter.)

Well, 'bout an hour to go and only 8 captions.
Put your thinking caps on or it's another day.
And nobody has hit the caption I thought of yet.
So consider this a bump.

That's a cross we all have to bear. Performance problems under pressure.

Or

On the last shot of a dog leg par 3. Will he make the shot into the sink garbage disposal?

Well, 24 hours and we get 10 cations.....err, captions in just under the wire.
Kitties are tabulating the votes now.

The caption I had in mind was to do with kitty wanting to use the litterbox for it's normal purpose and saying........
"Mind if I play through?"

Anyway,

3rd place to...........
Admiral Gloval. I wondered how he would explain how the cat pooped on the ceiling as well.............
"Cat thoughts.
I'll leave the explanations of how my cat logs got on the ceiling for you to tell the wife.

2nd place to.................
Lynn, who obviously knows how kitties think when they are not pleased with us..........
"The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on the list."

And the winner is................................
Carlos, with the kitty just watching and waiting for the proper shot to be made.
"Hee, hee, hee, wait until he finds the water trap."

Thanks for playing, PM going out to Carlos.
