Thank you @roverS3 for the nomination which takes me into the elite ranks of 10 wins, an achievement which is surely proof that if you spend enough time doing something you will eventually get the hang of it. Thank you for all the kind comments, I have on occasion put more time than I intended into a reply so it is nice that it was appreciated.
It is a most unfortunate coincidence that this win occurred while I was on the Continent for business and thus unavailable to do any actual fanning this week, though I did find time to enjoy the prize. If one believes the first page then the last two times I won this I passed the award onto @nuclearslurpee in recognition of his long and always appreciated comments in all the best AARs but unfortunately he is ineligible, so I cannot do it a third time in a row and thus transform the act into a ritual custom of the board, one weighed down with tradition and history, rich in half forgotten symbolism and pageantry.
On a more positive note there is another deserving candidate, one who is always a welcome presence dispensing both wit, wisdom and the law. Congratulations to your new Fan of the Week @Wraith11B !
I'll reply to this one independently, because as a fellow Virginian, I felt it needed to be a personal touch! Thank you, sir.
Good choice, well done
Fear not my friend, it’s a long and gracious wave goodbye over there and I’m more than happy to wait if I know there’s something coming.(I'm still waiting on some level of motivation to put together my response for Talking Turkey)
