This Weeks Giveaway - Provide Your Inspiration

I have a fabulous small Hallmark book called 'Whoops" a photographic celebration of clowning around and mishaps providing comic relief to the more serious side of life. A celebration of fun time frolics, as well as those unbelievable candid moments. Each of the photo's has an inspirational comment along side of it.

I will be giving this book away to the one person who comes up with the best/funniest/appropriate quote for one of the following photo's. Use the letter of the photo you are providing your quote to in the comments section along with your quote. Drawing will be held one week from now on May 5, at 6pm PDT. Have fun and good luck!
