Indubitably Incredible

Welcome to Dude Write!

We are thrilled to have you here, whether you are a Writer Dude, a Blogger Dude, a Reader Dude or a Fanatic of good writing. If you've stumbled upon us via a link and wondering what you've gotten yourself into, our Mission Statement should explain it all.

What can we say? When we opened Invisible or Indelible, clearly some of our regulars took their blogs into the lemon juice territory. Though we saw only six entries, we're sure that there are at least a dozen more that we simply couldn't see...

To summarize what happened this week:

My baby left me and went to Walabeemart in Australia, and bought a Queensland sized bed. I was left at home sitting on my throne talking to her on the phone.

And with that, we shall reveal the results.

Our inductee into the Members Only Diamond Club is Bryan Jones AND Chubby Chatterbox. It seems natural that in a week where there were less entries, there would be multiple winners...NO IT DOESN'T! Nothing surprises us anymore including multiple winners amongst such good posts. Bryan Jones says "see ya soon" to a daughter and simultaneously spreads a pollen attack to all his readers with My Baby Leaves Home. Meanwhile, Chubby sits mightily upon his throne, despite there not being a logical reason other than its cleanliness in Pee Standing or Sitting.

Congrats, and head on over to the Diamond Club to link up!

The latest People's Choice award winner, granted to the person receiving the most votes from our readership is Six Fingered Monkey. Who knew Six was such a passionate father? Well, clearly his kids do and now we do as well. Just when we thought the pollen attack was over, Six brings us The Telephone Game.



How long has it been since we got to give away awards? Feels like a long time. So long, in fact, that we forgot that Ken should have been picking a winner. Next week we could have 5 if the Editors and our two Members as well as Ken weigh in. This week, however; there is but one Chairman's Choice award.

WilyGuy said, "6 fantastic posts made choosing extremely difficult. I had to use all manner of factors to decide. They all hit me in different ways and 'the gut' liked them all. Cerebrally, I narrowed the list to a few that made me think. Normally, I like to spread the love around, but this week I'm giving a repeat. I know he's been waiting a long time to add MY Chairman's Choice to his shelf, but this week I have to give the award to Six Fingered Monkey. His post about the travails of fathers in a divorced world was truly stirring. He wrote The Telephone Game with equal parts passion and love. Way to go Six!"


Congratulations to all of the new Man Card winners this week. If you didn't get yours this week, come back again on Thursday and try again!
