Wayne over at The Bottom of A Bottle decided to lavish his nominees with all the awards bestowed upon him. There are four! And I am slow, this post comes in at almost two weeks after the nod.

I NOW PRESENT: All of you with the awards. My followers and passive readers deserve at least one if not all of these goodies. I can’t keep up with who doesn’t want any and who can’t get enough…So if you want them, mangia!
