31. SkADaMo 30 ~ Papa Comes Home


caimin_papa_RBaird72aShe didn’t hear the click clack of the lock, nor did she hear the munching of the last piece of Mama Camain’s pie as Papa hungrily gobbled it up.

skadamobutton2013monkey220And there you have it! Thirty days of SkADaMo and thirty days of Picture book ideas with PiBoldMo


This has been a very worthwhile experience to participate in. I now have 30 ideas, some good, some not so much, but none the less they are mine to work on and grow into full fledged stories!

No Excuses!

And so they arrived at the fay do do, over to Maman Caiman’s house. Each bringing with them, something to share. They ate till their bellies were full and they make the veiller. So much fun!

But Maman was worried, she hadn’t heard from Papa since last he left on his trip  to N’awlins.
“Merci pour m’svoir aide! We’re so happy you came! She said at their guest prepared to leave.

“Merci to you, Maman Caiman!” I hope you’ve saved some pie for Papa!

piepicSkADaMo 21
I figured these little ones, worked so hard on making the pie all week, they deserved a a piece themselves!

turkeycomic 1a_RBaird72

Skadamo 22 …and I’m all caught up.
Now for something really different. I’ve never done anything in comic format, so I have to say how much I admire those who do.This is a scribbly, sketchy attempt.
Here’s, Turkey Daze!
