the Whatevers #8: OH NO -- Not Andre!

It's the time of the month again -- when Nat, Vic and I reveal the latest about what our Whatever Characters are doing! 
Check out what Vic is up to here! 
Winston Newton Whatever was not a Doctor. 
He was not working in a hospital in Bombay, and his wife was not visiting him at the hospital. 
He WAS missing his children, his wife and all the comforts of home. He was also on a secret mission in a location that that no one would ever be able to find him if he didn't turn things around soon. 

What he didn't know was that his lovely Cordelia was searching for him in Bombay and Andre the Big Headed Giant was posing as the new chauffeur at the Faber Castle.
As he worked on loosening the bands on the huge wooden barrel he started thinking back to August.
Things had started going terribly wrong ever since he'd taken on this secret mission and he wasn't sure what was going to happen next. Right about now, though; all could think about was his family and retirement.
Cordelia, on the other hand realized at once that something was amiss the moment Andre knocked on the heavy wooden door to the castle kitchen looking for a chauffeur position.
She immediately started making arrangements to travel to Bombay to find Winston. She knew it was risky, what she planned on doing when she got there was a mystery. She just knew she had to get to her beloved Winston before it was too late! 
Want to play along?? We have just a few things to let you know about: 
  • Vicki, Nat and I have made a one-year commitment to each other and picked twelve photos with Whatevers whom we will give a story.
  • Every month – if possible always on the 15th –  each of us will do a post with an individual story that goes along for us with the same photo.
  • If you want you can play along and we will have the photo for you – just right click on it to safe it to download and show us your version of The Whatevers.
  • There are no rules to the story itself- it can be funny, sad, uplifting, breathtaking- WHATEVER
  • There are no rules on the length or the form of the story- it can be a short sentence, an essay, a poem or a soap opera – WHATEVER
  • There are no rules on the art form you choose – it can be a scrapbook layout, an altered art project, an art journal page – WHATEVER
  • Here is a rule though: if you take the photo you have to link back to us and show us your story.
  • These pictures are from our personal stash and are for personal use for you only! If you want to use them for a publication whether a book or magazine in print or digital form please ask for permission!
