Previous winner Jean Pyle of Hawthorne, NJ came through again. Her approach is unique. Instead of just a caption, Jean takes on the challenge of reworking lyrics of an Elvis song to fit the image. She picked “Suspicious Minds” for this one.
I’m caught in a speed trap.
I can’t walk out,
Because I drove too fast, baby.
Why can’t they see
What they’re doing to me
When they don’t believe a word I say?
“We can’t go to the police station together
With your suspicious mind.
It was just peanut butter and bananas
I was racing off to find.”
Jean also worked peanut butter and bananas into this, which is appropriate since her prize is a $31 gift card from Baskin-Robbins. Their flavor of the month for January is “Peanut Butter ‘N Banana” in honor of Elvis’ 80th birthday.
I’ve tried it and it’s pretty good. I even brought a hand-packed quart home.
I usually share a little of my ice cream cones with my golden retriever, Molly. No, she doesn’t lick it. I scoop a little into a cup for her. Well, with Baskin-Robbins’ Elvis flavor, I was able to do it a little differently. The peanut butter swirls are more like 1-1/2 inch long semi-frozen sticks. If you grab one end by two fingers, they pull out easily. I gave them to Molly and she loved them. By the way, Molly is a big Elvis fan, too.
