Thanks for the latest comments. All very kind and very much appreciated . (Even if I'm not a back-to-back winner).

Thanks very much. I appreciate all that. And congratulations to RubberDials, Nebbor, and the other finalists. All great entries.

@dilettante: The story behind the image... MiPr's links above are dead on target. I was going for the look of Sam Spade (or Philip Marlowe if you prefer), the 1930's/40's detectives made famous on the screen by Humphrey Bogart.


Thanks too for all the great comments during the voting. It didn't seem right to respond to them while the poll was still open. I owe a few of you specific responses:

@Jlav: Yes, that's ok.

@ricardovaste: Wow, thanks Rich.

@RosieA100: Yeah, my wife said the same thing.

@bms44974: Sorry, Jersey Lady ran out of the money. Willie Shoemaker came in 1st, riding Open Flow. Ron Turcotte came in second, on Morning Cast. Honest! By the way, the date on that paper is November 23, 1963.

Thanks again all.
