Writing to the Nines
The photo is dealing with dressing to the nines. According to wiki.answers the phrase is meant to be simply a reference of scale as "on a scale of one to ten; you are dressed to the nines" Since perfection can never be attained, nine would be the absolute best. Of course in the movie This is Spinal Tap the musicians could play past 10 to 11 -- a feat that is not musically possible unless you are stoned out of your mind.
What does this have to do with my blog post title? It is my way of promoting this month's blog chain tour which you can see to the right of this post. The topic this month is simply NINE. Each blogger will write on the topic to their liking whether it be their top 9 favorite things, pet peeves, blessings or even unique things about them or their writing. It should be a interesting month of blogging. I encourage you to check out each blog daily or whenever you have the time. I know I will be reading each and every one -- just not always on the day posted.
