and the winner is:
Good morning all and felicitations for your fine efforts in cheering me up. It's been a difficult few months for my friends and I for reasons I'm sure you're aware of and so far there's no end in sight. The idea a problem can be solved by ignoring it is a foible strictly related to less evolved humans.
But never mind that for now. I'm here this morning to announce the results of the poem for a painting contest offered by susan earlier last week. The entries were all charming and if I could paint I'd send each and every one of you an original Crow. Alas, there is just one and keeping with the tradition of total randomness I awoke this morning to find sealed envelopes on my breakfast tray. I've chosen one of them:
The winner is Nancy. susan will send the picture, unframed but nicely packaged, when she gets your address.
Please forgive the brevity but I have an appointment far away in the Gulf of Mexico later today. One day soon I'll tell you a story from my fledgling days but for now I must fly.
ps: Joe Bageant waxes eloquent this summer.
