I Won a Ribbon!

The Apricot Fiesta was this weekend and I submitted my canvas heart in the Art Show.  Guess what???  I won a First Place ribbon in the mixed media group!!  Pretty cool!

When I went to pick it up about an hour ago, the Art Show organizer asked me if it was for sale.  Geez...I never gave that any thought so I looked over at Kenny.  He just shrugged his shoulders so I said sure.  Then I had to come up with a price and I hate that part.  Where was Carly (aka my manager and daughter) when I needed her?  I didn't know what to say, so I said $40.  Hey, hey, hey, I just made $40 bucks!  She's calling me tomorrow so we can get together.  So I decided I didn't want to sell after all.  I'm sort of proud of myself and want to keep this one in the Command Center.  Right now, it's back in my cubicle at work...ribbon and all !!

Here's the photo with the beautiful apricot colored first place ribbon!
UGH!  That's me after 2 1/2 days of nonstop eating and 2 days of drinking in the sun.  Now, I'll join Kenny for a nap.  He's been snoring on the couch for at least 45 minutes now.

By the way, this year's Fiesta was one of the best in a long time.  We hung out all day yesterday with our buddies, Rosemary and Albert and laughed all day long.  And the fireworks display was outstanding!

Good Times - Good Friends!
