A poor retired plumbers thanks for COM
Chump of the month. What. Chump of the month, that what it stands for she announced. Does not. Does so.
Iíve read the mail from Charles, and all it says is COM. No it doesnít it says contributer. Itís a spelling mistake, she said. What, he got every letter wrong. Yes dear, have you read some of his posts. Some. Well I have, and spelling isnít his forte.
Anyway I think itís a new criteria they have created for you, she said. They have, I asked. Yes, and there is a very good chance you might win it again. You think. Oh Iím sure you will. Just think about it, are you any good at bowl turning. No I answered. Are you any good at routing, well no again. Are they going to present an accolade such as this to someone such as yourself who has no skills whatsoever. She continued. I guess, I muttered, so itís not what I thought
Itís not as bad as it seems. She offered. It isnít. No, just use the abbreviation, no one will know the difference.
Thank you honey, for offering explanations that are beyond my male comprehension.
I have alway looked in admiration at the presentation of the Contributer and to be honest have associated it with attributes such as expertise in ones field of endeavour or the ability to impart ones skills to the membership,
but to receive this accolade for producing a giant napkin holder and an under-sided cheese platter is very flattering.
And this is due in no small part to the inclusion of my much better half, who sees my requirement to be active and involved with crafts that invigorate and give purpose to my life, and for that simple understanding I will always be in her gratitude.
So with that I thank the fraternity for this honour and those who posted kind words of congratulation and support that makes the membership of this forum so rewarding
