    Drum roll, please . . . .

    Aiona and Lian had some marvelous entries, as did dpak, supracuhz and mrclmind.

    Still, I'm going to be decisive here and award the grand prize to Redneck Perfumisto for those hilarious haikus of his, with Scentronic coming in very close behind in second place. (RP may pick one of the two Montales first, then Scentronic may have the other.)

    RP: PM me with your choice, please, as well as your address. Scentronic, please PM me with your address. (By the way, it's very likely that I won't be able to get to the Post Office until Wednesday or so, so please bear with me.)

    Thanks SOOOO much to all of you who entered -- there were some downright wonderful entries, and my decision was not an easy one -- not at all. (Contests such as these simply serve to further remind all of us how very many talented, articulate Basenoters there are out there in Cyberville!)

    Thanks again, my fellow scenthounds!
