Week from 23rd June to 29th June
Posted By: Welshbhoy, 06-23-2020, 12:58 AM

The contest will run from Now (23rd June 2020) closing at 18:00 BST on 29th June 2020. Votes counted up thereafter.

You are still allowed to vote with a like, even if you haven't entered yourself.

Submissions can be in any written form (no video or audio files) — caption, limerick, motivational, poem or prose — whatever inspires you to describe the photo or catch attention. Submit by replying to the thread. Contestants may submit more than one entry but it must be in a separate post. Important: Even if you do not submit an entry, please “like” any posts you feel deserve it as this is how the winner is chosen. And if you DO submit an entry, please also find an entry that you like from among your competitors' efforts and "like" that one as well.

The "thread starter" is the moderator and must post an original photo at the start of the thread. In case of a tie the moderator will choose one to break the tie. After determination of the contest's winner, that winner will be notified ASAP after by the current Thread Starter/Contest Host and will become responsible for posting the next original work to be captioned. Enter often, vote more often. Good luck and enjoy.

The long suffering and ever patient photographers partner, what do they really think?

That's you this week Welshbhoy; the pressure is on! You get to pick your favorite, or flip a coin, or have your dog bark at the caption they like the best.

Yikes, tough decisions.

Given the historic links of Wales and Pennsylvania, many early Welsh emigres settled in Pennsylvania, going as far as having Welsh language settlements, even to this day many place names are Welsh or Welsh derivative, I'm leaning towards Merv-O, having said that and in the spirit of Celtic unity my Gaelic brother Kerrowdown also deserves my vote.

I'm going with Merv-O, for no other reason than the Welsh link to Pennsylvania..

Llongyfarchiadau! ........ That's Welsh for congratulations.

I've long wondered why someone would name a town Bala Cynwyd. Now I know. My ancestors on my dad's side were from Wales; surmane Davis (Davies). One of them was the gardener for the Earl of Buccleuch in Scotland in the 1750s. I knew you all would want to know that.

Still not explained...

My dad's family settled in Iowa with other Welsh settlers.

Well, I appreciate the votes and I shall have the next caption up in a few hours.....and when I first moved to the Philly area, I mispronounced Bala Cynwyd (the "C" is a hard K sound) and looked embarrassingly touristy when i stated where is Bala "Sin"wid?
In actuality Bala is a tony suburb of Philly in the main line area....
