Our local fair opened Friday night and Saturday I went to see the results on
all my entries. It was good and bad. I entered 14 different things in the

That was good. But only two were first place. Yah, I know, but it's not even
close to how well I normally do so I admit to being a tad disappointed. I
consoled myself with the thought that I know the woman who beat me out in
