It's That Time Again . . . The "Old Man's Major Award Award"

Yes, it's that time again. As we approach the end of the month, it is almost time to award the November OMMAA.

This presitigious trophy -- suitable for framing in, say, the picture window of the family home -- is bestowed to that Washington Capital who exhibits the timeless qualities of "The Old Man" -- a unique gift for language, a singular inability to fix anything, a hatred of Bumpus' hounds - or just opponents in general -- a love of turkey, and a singular effort in exhibiting the curmudgeonly, ornery, but loving attributes we attribute to, "The Old Man."

The floor is open to nominations for the first five days following the end of the month. The decisions of The Peerless will be final . . .

"What is a lamp, you nincompoop? It's a Major Award. I won it!"
