    Honorable Mention - adding picture with ribbon

    I did a little local art show this past weekend... Art in the Park at Lenoir City. I was supposed to be in the park along the creek, but with the weather being what it is, they had a contingency plan for if it rained... it rained, so we went to the local municipal building and set up in a gym. Sales were very soft, I sold two peppermills and a bowl, but over all I would call it a success. Lots of complements from the other artists and customers, plus it was a judged show and I wound up with an honorable mention for one of my pepper mills. I actually made the mill last fall.
    My wife made a picture of the mill with the ribbon attached, but she jiggled the camera and the picture was a bust... oh well. Another artist also took a picture and since he's a photographer artist, I expect I'll get a good picture from him.
    Here's a picture of the pepper mill without the ribbon.
    Nice thing is the award also comes with a small check that will cover the booth/entry fee - so all sales can go directly to the pocket book.

    Edit in: A friend sent me his picture of the peppermill with the ribbon.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Contratulations, Chuck. The pepper mill is beautiful, and we're looking forward to a picture of the ribbon.

    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?
