"Excellence in Recovery": the statuette

Shy as I am, I have to boast of receiving an "Excellence in Blogging" award from Karen Gadbois, who was, like a homegrown Vanna White, handing these out to partygoers at the Ritz before the real awards began.

I accepted mine gratefully, unlike Dr. Ed Blakely, whom Karen tried to give one as he entered the hotel; but the doctor, more modest than I, ignored her attempt to honor his achievement in excellence in recovery and spurned her attempts to laud him...because, one assumes, that trophy really belonged to the people of New Orleans.

I'm not that humble, however. That damn trophy is mine.
