The Grand Prize Is Right Here

On that faithful night, right back on January 4th, of ,09, a name was drawn right out of a rather larger Tupperware bowl. "What name was that?" you rightly ask. CHUCK! And suddenly, right on that spot, one man's life was forever changed. A mere pluck of a scrap of paper from a plastic bowl did all that. It is amazing how fate works.

Chuck is this year's recipient of the grand prize from my yearly Great Big Humongous Giveaway. Chuck is a nurse (God bless him), a University of Michigan fan (God help him), and the author of the blog: Chuck Thinks Right (God bless him more). From what I observed on his blog I think "right" means his political perspective and not necessarily the side of the brain that he uses - although both statements may be equally correct. Right?

After a few e-mail ex- changes, I offered to create a header for his right thinking, right brain, space on the web—something patriotic I thought would fit well. Chuck rightly agreed, and so I went right to it.

Chuck thought his doodle was righteous. (Well, he didn't exactly use those words, but that fits with the running gag that I have going here.)

Right away Chuck put up his caricature on his blog and gave me, what he called, a subtle plug. Actually, he went right over the top. (Do I seem to be over doing this to you? Maybe so.)

Anyway, thank you Chuck for participating in my giveaway. It was my privilege to create this little doodle for you. I hope you get many years of enjoyment out of it. Right on dude!!

And why don't the rest of you hop on over to his blog and take a peek at his header in use. After all, it's only the right thing to do.

I think it's your RIGHT and his RIGHT to brag about your doodle you drew for him. That's what makes this nation great... the RIGHT to free speech.

Your description of me and my blog are Right on the money. I can say though that I don't think you are Right about U of M, Rodriquez will Right the ship fairly quickly. So for now, from the Right side of the country, a big thanks from Right Chuck.

Great drawing. Shame I didn't win though! ;)

Hey if you want an idea for a doodle, you could try animating my latest nightmare!

Although, on second thoughts, maybe not! I wrote about it in this post http://partnerofapilot.wordpress.com/2009/01/25/strange-dreams/

I've had a few weird ones recently. I wish I could draw, as I'd love to keep a dream diary that I could also draw the images from my minds eye in.

I'll head over there. Congrats Chuck!
