firstly the big news of the day, I have just discovered that I am related to Zimbabwe’s big olympic medal hope, the beautiful Kirsty Coventry, she’s a close relative, she’s my mothers, cousins, grandsons fiance. So there you go I’m related to an olympic medal winner, world champion, world record-breaking athlete, who’d have thunk it.

Anyway this week I’m clutching at the most tenuous of straws again when it comes to following the guidelines of this project (Animals) but after taking several dozen pictures of Bunny Chow this week I’ve not really been very pleased with any of them and my cants have been uncooperative then this morning I’ve been doodling whilst on the phone at work and before I knew it I’d doodled this picture of Wol who I’m very proud of.

Owl took Christopher Robin’s notice from Rabbit and looked at it nervously. He could spell his own name WOL, and he could spell Tuesday so that you knew it wasn’t Wednesday, and he could read quite comfortably when you weren’t looking over his shoulder and saying “Well?” all the time, and he could……A.A.Milne

In case you are wondering about my spelling Wol refers back to several quotes from the dyslexic Owl in the genius of the great A A Milne’s House at Poo Corner. In case you are wondering about what sort of owl Wol is the answer is he’s a generic horned owl from my imagination. Maybe a Scops Owl because they’re cute and go prrrp.

Hope you’ve had a great week, next week we’re going to be looking at textures until then


Mr Bunny Chow

    Hey Bunnychow! I love the owl. 🙂

    Reading this made me think…. did you read this? It really surprised me, this link between Zim and Scotland.

    • Believe it or not it was this post that first led me to your blog, just finished reading a fantastic book called Sons of Africa by Jeffrey Wittam a large part of which hinges around the story of the Shangani Patrol. Many years ago my father and I went and found the very dilapidated Alan Wilson memorial. It was very sad to see how remote and alone they must have been and how today Africa is reclaiming the memorial year by year.

    ha! 🙂 That’s nice.

    Thanks for the book link. I must check it out.

    Oh yes, that is a verrrrry close relative! 😉 I love Wol, he’s gorgeous! Somehow I’ve missed the Virgo drawing you were going to do?

    • Zelmare, I promise I’ll do a drawing just for you, Virgo and I just don’t gel though, I’ve tried but failed a couple of times now.

      • zelmare says:

        🙂 I’m just pulling your leg… If you and Virgo can’t seem to get it together, that’s fine. I love Wol, I’ll adopt him! 🙂

      • you can’t have Wol, I’ve promised him to my father, but I’ll find you someone I promise.
