Here Ya Go. The Winning Story!

And no, the story isn't about birds.

Jelly

Zimbabwe

Here Ya Go. The Winning Doodle!

10. ta daaLast week, the lovely and talented Jo Robinson was the winner of The Official Semi-Annual Mike Allegra Win a Doodle Contest. Her prize was a custom made doodle of anything she wanted!

What she wanted was a flock of birds:

“Can you do a doodle of my birds, please? I have four of them — two nanday conures (a male called Beep Beep and a female called Beany), and two masked weaver bird boys called Jelly and Button. I call them my feathered horde… They fell out of their nests up in Zimbabwe (lived there for 18 years until we had to leave a couple of years ago) and have been my babies ever since.”

Well, Jo, your wish is my command:

But that’s not all! Jo also won a Mike Allegra-penned story featuring five words of her choice. Those words are:

Weatherwax
Jelly
Books
Nuts
Zimbabwe

So far I’m stumped, but I’m sure I’ll come up with a story by next week. Stay tuned.

I am flattered and I thank you.

Unfortunately, there can only be one doodle winner. So let’s get down to brass tacks, shall we?
