I entered two things in the county fair this year: Lady Eleanor, and a pair of plain toe-up socks.
Both won blue ribbons. I am quite astonished.
Don't get me wrong; I am as pleased as punch about it. But I have no doubt that if, say, Kim, or Terby, or, well, pretty much any blogger I read** were to compete, I wouldn't be quite so blue.

* That's a terrible representation of the color; the picture here is much better.
** I should probably edit that list of blogs over there, hmmm?
