Sorry for the lousy photo - I took this last night with a flash.
All plans to retake it this morning were scuttled, as all plans of mine
Here she is, in all her glory.
She is trying to get Dotty (front left) and Kookie (front right)
to notice her 'bling' - her ankle bracelet. They could care less.
DS Melanie's daughter actually won more than one blue ribbon at this year's County Fair. My girl was the third wheel on her breeding set of Blue Laced Red Wyandottes.
I have dreamed of winning blue ribbons at the fair for years - when I was young, someone on our street started a 4-H Club. I was so thrilled. Until I went to the first meeting. It was all about the mother trying to force friends on her daughter. There were no cows. There were no chickens (well, I DID have a chicken for a while). There were no goats, calves, pigs (other than Guinea which don't count in my little black book). Nada. I never went back. Then I went to art school and forgot about county fairs. I still may try to enter something in their jams and jellies category. It ain't a Jersey, but it's still a ribbon!
Thank you, DS and DSD (daughter)! We are so proud!
