Time to pass the mantle to a worthy rat. Please put your nominations here.

I'm sorry, I haven't had the time for bilge. Summer time is crazy with all the daylight. Still 17.5 hours of sunlight. Working in the yard and garden till late, then working around the house.


Anyway, place your nominations here. Total of 10.

:) :D thanks

Concordia 41. Margo has shown just how great a bilge rat can be. I doubt she'd have much time to tend to the office, but the honor is well deserved.

We really need to get some rules going on in this bilge rat thing, Ms.Margo is a wonderful person, but hardly a bilge rat. Maybe we should have like a saint of the month thing or something. Now Glen or Curtism or Gerarddm, now there is some bilge rats.

The bar was set high to begin with.

Well, what should that definition be? Is Spindrift a bilge rat?

I hereby nominate my good friend and endless source of inspiration: Bobby of Tulsa.

I know... I know... he's not one of them loudmouths who makes himself an endless, unavoidable, presence (we won't mention any names, otherwise my buddy Glen will smack me!). But if you've ever spent any time in that quintessential Bilge hangout... The Pub... you'll know what a rock he is.

Besides... isn't it about time that someone from Okie-ville gets nominated for some honor, somewhere, of some kind???? <G>


Oh... and Ms. Drift soars above all such petty classifications. She is the one and only. Tulsy is right that she doesn't fit the classical definition of Bilge Rat (she's just not capable of BEING enough of a rat)... but she's welcome to the title if she desires it, as far as I'm concerned. And I don't even mind that she was a hands-off BROTM. I'm only disappointed that she didn't appoint an Chancellor of the Bilge to rule in her unavoidable absence. Maybe Thud, Paul Oman, Phillip Allen, or SchoonersRus. I've never SEEN anarchy up close, eh?

Bob Adams.

The rat of rats, under whose rule the positive threads were noted, etc..

I also second Margo who is a real jewel. One of the very finest Rattes the bilge has ever had.

And Katherine is very worthy also.

Failing that, I also second Katherine. Such equanimity should be rewarded. ;-)
