First Place: Hedwig2751
George Weasley: Life is short, live it and end it laughing.

Second Place: Linda Shakespeare
Fred and/or George Weasley: Who said jokes had to be practical?

Third Place: UpToNoGood7
Molly Weasley: "Familia primum semper procedit" meaning 'Family always comes first'

Honourable Mention: WeenyOwl
Wilkie Twycross: Have 3 Ds - Will Travel

Honourable Mention: Avery W. Krouse
The Ollivander Family: It takes one to know wand.

The first place winner will receive a handcrafted wand donated by Wizard Wood Wands (changes monthly) and 200 MyLeaky points. Second and third place will receive 150 and 100 MyLeaky points respectively. Well done to the winners and everyone else who entered!

KiwiMcI, probably only an American of a certain age would get the Wilkie Twycross motto. There was a Western TV series in the US in the 1960s called “Have Gun, Will Travel.” It was the motto inscribed on the business card of a mercenary gunslinger called Paladin. I guess you had to be there.

Love all the mottos – esp. Molly’s. Couldn’t the winner also be Fred’s motto as well?

They were all great! Loved Molly’s best as any mom would. Congrat to all the winners. Would love to read some of the others if they could be put out on a board somewhere.
