Most of my big awards have been self presented. However, the award I won last year for Lawrence Kansas Neighbor of the year, just stood out over all the rest. It was based on a post I put on a local article right here on LJW. I threw a big party and invited myself and my imaginary dog clifford. it was a great celebration for such great work.
