While perusing one of A-BNdom's leading roadside attractions, namely 19thcenturybottlediggers.com (http://www.19thcenturybottlediggers.com/apps/photos/photo?photoid=173775824) and it's many glassy delights and digging tales, I noticed that our very own author and digging raconteur, Mr. Rick Weiner, sir, has won 1st Place Honors for his story, "(not so) Down in the Dumps" in AB&GC's 10th Annual Writing Contest.

Not only that, but Mrs. Lauren Bottone, who has sadly been absent of late from the Blue Pages of late has won 3rd Place Honors for her story, "Coyotes, Bears and Neighbors, Oh My!" Lauren won the Cornucopia / Urn Pictorial Flask.

Congratulations on this recognition for your digging and writing skills, you two!

Thanks very much everyone! And thanks for making my day, Steve. Haven't been around much, as I've been ill and feeling really lousy. Don't have a lot of energy, heart problems, and they're still trying to get my thyroid medicine dosage correct (had to have most of my thyroid removed). I didn't think anyone really wanted details, but I thought it best to set the record straight. Not to complain, but it's been an awful time for me. I do what I have to do and try to stay positive.

Thanks also to John Pastor and everyone at the magazine! He's asked me to do some more writing for them in different areas, so I hope to be up for that soon. It's hard to read or write much with brain fog/concentration problems.

"Every thing on the internet is true" "where did you hear that? on the internet" "Oh wait,here comes my date,he is a French model" where did you meet? on the internet.


That is how it is on here,some people believe there own bull chit. I know to much.I see right through you.Don't believe every thing you read.[8|]

At our monthly bottle club meeting someone mentioned the use of laudanum in the old days. I commented that "Wyatt Earp's wife was addicted to it". "I know... they said so in the Tombstone movie". Somebody else said "well if it was in the movies it must be true". We all had a good laugh. Congrats Rick on winning the Townsends.

Lair and Joe.

Sorry for not responding sooner. I know folks here were nice to me when I was first sick and I was embarrassed and chose to shut An out of my life. Didn't want to but I thought it necessary at the time. The people here care about you though they are not always great at expressing it. I can only tell you that my illness and subsequent depression was not the same as yours but there are lots of similarities. I finally made it back and you will too!
