His bows are ALLRIGHT but I really like his HAT!

Congratulations on the clean sweep Gordon. And thank you for the fine examples of workmanship that you continue to produce. They certainly represent the level that many of us hope to attain

Thank you all so much for your compliments. To be picked as BOM is truly an honor. To be picked twice is almost unimaginable - thank you again.
