I entered our county fair's photo competition again this year with no real expectations. Always waiting until the last moment to decide which pics to enter often leaves me wondering why I chose the ones that I did
. There were about 800 entries in about 65 categories (some with no entries). Only one entry in each category per contestant.
Tonight was the first day of the fair so Maggie and I went to check it out.
We were pretty much blown away to find that out of my eleven entries
I had 2 Firsts, 3 Seconds, 4 Thirds (appropriate I thought) and 1 Honorable Mention.
Maggie entered some of her canned goods and a few antiques. Not very many entries in each category, many with only a couple (too many very specific categories), but none the less she took
firsts with her Tomato Marmalade, Blueberry Chutney, Dilled Greenbeans and Blueberry/Lavender Jam
. And won a special prize for her antique ring.
It was a VERY good evening.
