First Place, It has a nice sound to it. Every time I say First Place my head begins to swell a little more. We have just returned from the Rendezvous Festival in Carson City. Yours Truly took two First Places. I won First Place in the category of Bread by the Judges. I also nailed the People's Choice Award for Bread. Our Team the 'Meatmen' took First Place in the People's Choice Award for our Main Dish. We took Second place overall in the competition by the Judges It was a good weekend.
The weather was in the mid-eighties. The crowd was plentiful. The food and companionship was spectacular. I woke up this morning and looked at the front page of the local newspaper. There we were. There was a picture of Abram with his Pork Roast. All the awards were listed. We were local celebrity's. I won a nice plaque and a nice little wad of Cash. The Cash almost paid for gas.(to Reno). Our team won a plaque, some books and a gift certificate to the local market. We promptly cashed that in.
