The Whatevers #4: Wilford's Best Laid Plans
Oh how I love playing along with the Whatevers! With the picture this month I kept being drawn to the man with the mustache and had to make him the focus of my story. His wife and daughter have eyes looking off to the side, but there sits Wilford, looking directly at the camera, resolute.
Here's the right side of the spread.
This close-up lets you see my found book text.
Wilford finally concluded that he was an utter failure at farming. He hated being awakened by the rooster, never did like cows; figured the feeling was probably mutual, and kept misplacing his Farmer’s Almanac that his neighbors swore by and subsequently missed all the important planting dates. To remedy the situation, he decided to sell the farm and with the money move his family to the city and become a shopkeeper. People would now come to him to meet their needs instead of snicker when he walked by. His family would be dressed in fine clothes he would import from Europe, and he would finally be a respected member of the community. “Life will be so much better,” he thought to himself.
Check out the projects done by Nathalie, Vicki and Catherine this month on their blogs where you can also get the picture to play along, too.
