September "Best Shirt" Award

This month's Robin's Best Shirt Award followed right on the heels of the remembrance gathering for Bill Guynes, and one event just morphed into the other.  This made this month's very competitive and gave Mary and her panel of illustrious judges something to really think about.

Again, the competition is getting so tough, and the award so coveted, that there is a lot of negotiation and solicitation for the victory; remember July's competition and the loan of a camera. That continued this month, as Mike Cook was seen sidling up to Mary Henderson, and Steve Guynes reports that he proposed marriage to one of the judges, Isabel Schober.  Does this work?  You be the judge.

There's talk of a 2008 Best Shirt Award Calendar with the 12 winners from 2007 being honored as Shirtmates of the Month, so that leaves only three more months for any wannabes to join this select group.

Mike Cook's strategy is to sidle up to the one who counts, Mary Henderson.
