    Default **New Year's Heave--a contest**

    The first person to pm me with both the name of the gentleman in my avatar and why he is wearing what he is wearing (e.g., why would he be posing in that costume) will win a package containing the following samples:

    Chanel Platinum Egoiste
    CDG Series 2: Red Sequoia
    Parfums de Nicolai New York
    L'Artisan Perfumeur Voleur de Roses
    Creed Royal Scottish Lavender
    Creed Spring Flower
    Zino Davidoff
    Lacoste Elegance
    Tom Ford for Men
    Montale Chypre Vanille, Oud Ambre, Sandflowers and Orient Extreme

    No partial credit. Two hints are nobel prize winner and charlottesville, va.

    Good luck,

    Congratulations to Caoleus, who responded first to the question posed above with the entirely correct answer. The gentleman (a term used loosely) pictured in my avatar is William Faulkner, the Nobel Prize winning author. He posed for the portrait in the riding habit of Farmington Hunt Club (now Country Club) in Charlottesville, Virginia, which he was asked to join during his tenure as writer-in-residence at the University of Virginia.

    Other respondents were either only partially correct (i.e., wrong identity or not supplying the information re: Farmington), or were entirely correct, but were beaten to the punch by Caoleus. Many thanks to those who responded for taking the time.

    I will now retire the Faulkner avatar.

    regards,

    That was a fun contest.

    Yesterday I tried for 15 minutes to find something related to your avatar, but when I look up the Wikipedia page of William Faulkner, I'm confronted with the typewriter he used - a picture I *definitely* saw yesterday in my search, but I don't remember where or what.
    Wanted: a cap of Bvlgari Thé Vert

    Wanted: L' Artisan Timbuktu or Fragonard Concerto

    This was very enjoyable - kudos for thinking of it!

    I identified the 'gentleman' but not the purpose of his pose.
    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

    I was sure it was Walter (the husband in the sitcom "Maude").
