My Fifteen Minutes of Fame -- er, minute and a half

Several people have congratulated me on being one of the "Editors Picks."

Hey, I thought, I'd like to see that. 

But I can't find it.  Not under keyword, not under search, not googled.  Ah, well, everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes.  It's just that my fame is a bit more provincal. Someone has hidden my light under a bushel. 

Well, I am honored and proud, but I will temper my exhultation.  My "hit counter" jumped by thirty, and that's good.  Be assured, I will not let this go to my head.  I will remember you little folks as I move on to the higher plane.  You made me what I am today.

Before I knew I was a "pick", I was re-reading my June entries and I was proud of myself.  The enrties were mostly positive.  I found mostly a month of bitch-free commentaries. At eighty, with an octogenians' aches and pains, just wearing a smile is worthy of an Editors' Pick I presume.

Thanks, all.

I am honored to share this week's 15 minutes of fame with you.  My celebrity status is wasted on my family, they just grunted at the mention and went back to doing what ever it is that they do behind my back.  Oh well, one day when I'm rich and famous (for longer than 15 minutes that is), I'll remember who cared.
Congratulations guy.
