I'd admit it. I am not the rag chewer I used to be. But I do have on the 
wall a Rag Chewers Certificate hanging on the wall. I don't think you 
can even get them anymore at all do you?

They were a cool program where the recipient can not ask for it. But a 
person that had a nice 30 minute or longer contact with the person would 
"Nominate" them for the award. It would arrive totally un expected. Fun 
Stuff. And Free. Now days it would probably cost ya 10 bucks.
