And I "third" the congrats! And thank everyone who bought a ticket (or ten)! Marina, we can't wait to see you frolicking in the Oasis pool next year! Tom, your painting was beyond gorgeous. Sabu, you must be basking in the glow of your prize.

Sabu the Coconut Boy! Buddy... remember coming over to my room for a drink? Awfully nice of me... wish there was a way to show appreciation... a gift perhaps... something rum related for the rum I shared... I'm just saying...
Congrats, man! That painting is awesome!
Honoring my gods one sip at a time.

Marina - Thankyou for the congratulatory phone call and video! I'm beyond honored to have your likeness welcoming guests to my home tiki bar. The painting is stunning. Under glass, in Tom's custom frame, it feels like I have a view through port-hole at the Wreck Bar itself. So glad you're going to make it to Oasis 2010.
Tom and Kari - thanks for putting together this raffle. What a fantastic idea to raise Mermaid Transportation funds. I appreciate what an honor it is to own an original Thor painting and believe me, it will have THE place of pride in my tiki bar. The fact that it's one of my absolute favorite Thor paintings just makes it all the better. When I checked my messages Sunday and learned that I had won the raffle, I let out the loudest whoop and sprinted across the hotel grounds to the THOR store like I didn't even have a hangover! It was icing on the cake of a perfect Oasis 2009. Tom even showed me some of his secrets on how he gets paints with rum and gets that beautiful palette of brown tones. You can pop the back off the frame and get a good buzz just sniffing this painting.
Unga - I do get a date with Marina, but because it takes place underwater, it only lasts as long as I can hold my breath, which is about a minute and a half.
Thanks again Tom for the gorgeous painting.
