Out Of Order

This business of having to come downstairs to access the computer is taking some getting used to. I know logically I should've given you an update on my cake and the town fair in general before posting again. But I think we all know that logic isn't really what drives me.

The town fair was a smash, as always. And my cake won first prize! Here's a shot again, in case you missed the excitement the first time around:

I also entered these:

The toy came first, the necklace third. I entered muffins (I ate those before thinking to take a photo. They looked like muffins. Use your imagination.). They came third and won me a tub of honey.

It would be important to note at this point--before you get too impressed with my seemingly unending ability to win, win, win--that this is a rather small town fair. There were, on average, three entries per category. So coming third really isn't as impressive as it might seem. But I take my wins where I can get them! More importantly, I had fun.

Someone else who had fun was Firstborn. He designed a promotional poster at school for the fair and came third in that category. And he was extremely pleased to come first in his age group with his original lego creation:

Ignore the weird hairdo. He whipped his hat off seconds before I snapped the shot, realizing that none of the famous artists in history had their portraits done wearing a Vancouver ball cap.

We both had our pictures taken--me with my cake, him with his lego--for the local paper. I'll keep you informed when and if those photos are published and we find ourselves famous.

I'm practicing my autograph, just in case.

Congratulations on your win-win-win! I wish I had a creative bone in my body so that I could accomplish half of what you did. Beautiful cake my friend! Just gorgeous.
