Accolades

Thank you all so much for your wonderful, kind comments about By the Sea and Toy Gatherer. Thanks especially for not mentioning that it took me 13 years to complete. Of course you wouldn't point that out. You are my people! You understand my plight.

You are not, however, the only ones who deserve accolades. Indeed, you will remember that the dude was playing chess this weekend. On Saturday he was the co-leader. We were pretty proud of him. On Sunday, he came home with the trophy and a small cash prize! He won the tournament outright! My what a big brain he has!

Congrats on the finish and the trophy! It's always nice to see that big brain = big trophy.

Gotta love a dude with a big brain!

Margie said...

LOL! How can I say anything about your 13 year Toy Gatherer when I have a twenty year Herb Gatherer?? :-)

That trophy is more exciting than the cash. I was so excited to see your Toy Gatherer finished and framed, you must feel so good!

Kate said...

Kudos to you both! I don't know which is more beautiful -- the trophy or "Toy Gatherer"! Or maybe it's "By the Sea".... OK, it's a three-way tie.
