Hey, I Won Something!

May 21, 2008


I just returned from my oldest son’s wedding in Baton Rogue, Louisiana and found an attractive red box sitting on my doorstep. Inside was a Platinum Book Award for the Read With Me Bible I did back in the early 90’s. It has officially sold over a million copies and apparently you get a heavy chunk of leaded crystal to prove it. Being a hockey player, I immediately strapped on a pair of inline skates, hoisted the trophy over my head and skated it around our neighborhood.

Where’d you get that jersey? VooDoo Mart?

Doug Jones

I am imagining thunderous applause from the squirrels and rabbits as you skated through your neighborhood…

Don Jones

And a walking ovation from a few deer…


Congratulations! You must be rich with all those royalties from all those sales coming in. Donald Trump must be envious of the fortune you’ve amassed.

Jason Bourne

Nothing like a victory stance with a silver hand…

Doug Jones

I’m glad to see from your picture that you did not get the big head from receiving this award. hey, point up into the sky and say “de plane… de plane… ”

Dennis Jones

…unfortunately, I tripped right after this picture was taken and two squirrels and an armadillo were injured…

So now it becomes the “Bleed with me Bible”? Congrads Dennis!


WOW, a Gretzky pose and the tongue hanging out of the mouth like Jordan…yep, you’re the man. Congrads D


Hey, I helped you win that award! I’m one of those million buyers! Congratulations! My kids and I have really enjoyed it!


Congrats on that! I, too, am one of the million. I don’t have kids, though—just love the illustrations.
