This is me and Dexter's haul for the season.
Granted some of these ribbons are technically "last" place, but some aren't so that's ok. Some of the blue ribbons are even legitimate, as in more than one person was in the class.
My family was able to come and see me get back in the game. And by the end of the season (again ours, I know for others its just beginning) we were such pros at the whole thing, we didn't even have to drag the husband along. Sometimes the scores were ok, sometimes they were better and sometimes they were bad. But we got there, we didn't fall off and in the end, shows were routine for both me and Dexter and I think that was the first step.
Next year's goal.... a year end award.
