Where have youse been AA? Even the one-eyed porter at the local bordello knows that the mity Thomasso is a beacon in the black-hole of FL wines. Hims' been promoting the stuff for so long his statue has been erected in Trafalger Square. WW

Congrats Thomas! who big's the trophy? ... will it hold a magnum of wine?
- Drew - 04-22-2011 07:43 AM
Well done, Thomas!

Way to go, Thomas!! Just how much did you have to consume to qualify for this honor?
- Thomas - 04-22-2011 11:48 AM
It was funny. I was at the dinner. Didn't know about the award, and when Jim Trezise announced what it took to win such an award, I said to the people at my table, "If he knew how much FL wine I drink, he'd give me the award."
Next thing I knew, he called out my name!
Engineer, it's a plaque. Try as I might, no way to get any wine into or out of it...

Mighty nice, Thomas, and richly deserved. I've learned more from your writings than from any other individual in the wine bidness.
- Thomas - 04-23-2011 01:52 AM
Oh my. Now hotwine has made me feel responsible. Such pressure.
Thanks for the kind words, all of you.

Nice!!! Plaque takes less space!

Congrats on the award, but I'm more concerned about the radiation. I hope that was as big a success. Still praying.
- Thomas - 04-24-2011 07:46 PM
The last radiation is tomorrow. With prostate cancer, success is measured by the low PSA blood count and the longer it stays low. In other words, success is relative to longevity. One simply gets no certificate of success, only a certificate of achievement, which I'm told I will receive tomorrow--and really don't want, but I'll be gracious.
Otherwise, I don't feel any worse for the wear of the past nine weeks, except a little more daily fatigue that keeps me from doing many things.

our prayers are with you Thomas!!
- andrawes76 - 04-25-2011 02:42 AM
Thomas, you have my prayers. As a great writer, its always a great thing to write down/and chronicle your journeys, successes and battles. Have a great Easter and good evening.
- Thomas - 04-25-2011 08:08 PM
I've been keeping a journal of this journey.

Needless to say this poster needs banning. WW
