Quel bummer! (as we who are to be published in French say) ---

I can't help being a tad disappointed, even though I was amazed to find myself a nominee in the first place. And, of course, I still feel honored to be in the company of etc . . .

So, c'est la vie and congratulations to the finalists!


Here's the short list --

Your day WILL come Vicki ... nothing but the best will be in your future. Just think of all you accomplished in the past few years ... kind of incredible if you ask me.

Thanks, Pat. Didn't mean to sound whiny -- just truthful. As I'd posted the good news of the nomination, I felt I owed you all a follow up. And how can I be down in such weather! ("Climb ev-ry mountain -- ford ev'ry streeeaamm --follow ev'ry rainbow --- merciful fadeout)
