    FAIR Enough...

    I put a few items in the Canfield Fair (biggest fair in Ohio) this year, and did pretty well. Got one first, three seconds, and an Honorable Mention - five items, five ribbons. Not bad, eh?

    Way to GO, Jim. I can't believe "MY favorite", (the curly Maple & walnut box) didn't get a Best of Show, or at least another First Place though.

    Some impressive goodies there. Ribbons and braggin' rights... what America's Fairs are all about.

    I wander through the exhibits and think, I can do that, or I want to make one of those, or that goes on the list....

    Never had the gumption to actually do it and enter, Hats off to ya... even w/o the ribbons, you entered, I didn't, so You win....
