I got an email this morning from a friend who told me I had been selected, and sure enough, there I am -- Best Use of a Hat as a Prop in an About Post. (You have to scroll down toward the end to see it, right after the self-loathing award and just before the lifetime achievement award.) My thanks to whomever nominated me, which is all it took to get in. These are not quite serious, which is much welcome in the all too serious world of wine blogging. Next year, I want to win the award for best punk rock obit. Seriously.
And, as regular visitors here know, my hat is no prop – I wear ‘em all the time. Own almost a dozen – fedoras, straws, you name it. And I have even written about them on the blog.
