I hope you are sitting down

I have a group of ladies that I knit with on Wednesday nights at Argyle Fiber Mill.  Our group is lovingly referred to as the Argylian Society of Knitters, or ASK.  In an attempt to increase knitted entries at the Lafayette County Fair this year, we all contributed knitted, felted or crocheted items.  I entered in 4 categories and got a few ribbons, one was an award of merit for my collection of 3, which was a hat, scarf and mittens.  I was happy, but not being of a competitive nature, I was equally happy for the what the others in our group got for awards.
Now to the part that you are going to need to sit down awards check!!!!

And here it is!!!  Clicking to biggefy does NOT increase it's monetary value.  (ps-I tried it already)
Now I know what you are thinking......I should be grateful for any amount at all, and I am, but this made me  just bust out laughing.  And please notice that it took 3, that's right, 3 people to ok this check with their signature.  

I better get to the bank, I need to cash my check for a big shopping spree this weekend.  Look for me in the clearance aisles.  

Toodles for now. 

That which angers us, controls us.


  1. Oh, that IS a hoot! I don't think there are premiums paid for knitting entered in the State Fair, since entering is free. What if I'm wrong? "Wait for me! I want to go shopping with you!"

  2. DAMN Giiiiirl! You are buying dinner at Jefferson ;). LOL

    Seriously though, congrats on your wins, you should be very proud.

  3. Three dollars fifty - why, in "The Grapes of Wrath" the entire Joad family could have survived for a month on such an enormous sum!


He who angers you, controls you.

And my favorite.......You can't control what others say or do, but you can control your reaction.
