What Is Your New Year's Resolution? Caption Contest Week Six, Plus Week Five Favorites!

Week Five of our Caption Contest gave us a chance to wish a very happy birthday to Jane Fonda, a woman whose own Six Words embody the philosophy of living life to it’s fullest: “I’ve lived a very lubricated life.” Here are six of our favorites:

  1. Judgment later caught up with poise.- l2l3
  2. She brings out my Electric Cowboy.- wolfie
  3. Everything and anything -but never plain.- Steve__Anthony
  4. Kept me in spandex in 1983.- TigerRoS
  5. Resilience makes my heart grow fonda’- judah
  6. “Golden Pond” was really very deep.- SilvercityWille

As we enter the sixth week of our caption contest and 2014 rapidly approaches, we want to hear about your New Year’s Resolutions.
