To say I'm shocked, let alone speechless is an under statement.  

In today's mail I received a certificate from CQ Magazine.  

It says: 

2011 CQ World Wide DX Contest

                1st Place  
              Low Power  
SSB  Single-Op Assisted - 10 Meters
       United States 10th Area

#11 North America  -  #7 North America 
        New Call Area Record

Like I said I'm completely shocked.  But I'll accept it and proudly 
display it on my shack wall.  

My deceased Father-in-Law always told me that "God watches over 
drunks, little boys and damned fools."  

He never would tell me what category he placed me in and I never 
pushed for an answer for fear he would tell me.  But receiving this 
certificate certainly says he was right.  LOL!  

Just had to brag a little.  I don't get that many chances to do that.
