    Another idea, and maybe something I would actually do, lol. How about a mini-article contest? How many words would it take to describe how to make a transport box for baby fowl? :D

    I have an even better idea for transporting them, which I did with my lings. Put them on your lap! :lau

    ETA: Just make sure they are secure, and don't distract you, of course.... I piled my jacket around them, and left a breathing hole. They were angels!

    I started writing my article, and now I have a problem. It is too long! I wrote more of a thesis than a short article. [​IMG]

    The word count is over 2000 words and I'm not totally done yet. Is that too long?

    Subscribed....


    Why did you change the award. I was sure the last winners won a all expense paid trip to Australia for 2..... Including first class air fare....



    Of course, I know personally one winner is still waiting for the Air fare to arrive.....




    Also I will enter this, most likely after Blooie does so I have a benchmark set for me to reach...[​IMG]


    I do have an article in mind, but I need a suitable model for the pictures portion of it...





















    Ps. Sometime I am not connected to reality for weeks at a time..

    Can we write a CHILDREN'S SHORT STORY about chickens, including pictures?

    I have one that I wrote for my Grandson for Christmas, I had it professionally bound before I presented it to him, and the printer advised me to send it to a regular Children's Book Publisher for consideration, but I have no interest in selling it, but I would love to let people read it for free.

    I have 3 published novels, plus quite a few short stories, and I also did a bi-weekly newspaper column for a long time in the Newnan Times Herald, located in Newnan, Georgia.

    My work was very popular until I was disabled in an auto accident, but now, I have 3 websites up and running again.

    Please check out my cooking site on Facebook, RedNeckCooking, and UncleBuddySez, for good clean, humor, and down to earth Blue Grass Gospel Music.

    Thank you very much,
