38. The prize winner of Harpers Ferry WV (we hope)

Doug, my friend and hair stylist, has considered putting out a CD for years, but it never happened – the time was never right. He’s made gift CDs of his music for friends, relatives and his salon clients. I think he has a great voice – and important things to say.

Doug entered a jingle contest for Chock Full O’Nuts coffee about 6 weeks ago, just after he returned from his second trip to Thailand. He’d read The Prize Winner of Defiance Ohio on the airplane and heard about the contest a few days later and considered it a sign. (Although he admits that writing jingles was never a dream of his in his youth).

Two weeks ago, his network of family, friends and friends-of-friends faithfully voted for him on the Chock Full O’Nuts website. He made the finals and this week we are voting again.
