Well, this is certainly a first

Back in November, Mom, Paul and I hastily put together a display for the Park of Lights(pictures at this link) at the nearby State Park. Conception to set-up was about 27.75 hours. We had a blast doing it, but didn't really think we'd get more than a few family votes or a few slightly inebriated votes from well-meaning and easily amused rednecks.

We came in 6th out of either 42 or 47 entries (Mom couldn't remember the exact number).

We came in SIXTH!!!!

Paul came in from work tonight and handed me a piece of paper out of his wallet. I could tell it was a check as soon as he pulled it out and my eyes zeroed in on the amount first. Then I realized what the "to" line said:

For some reason, I think that's just about one of the best things that I've ever seen in my life.

Be sure to make a color copy and frame it!
Yay for you guys.

That's like the couple of Christmas cards that I have received from blogger buddies that read:

To: Sam, Chicken and Teddy Bear

and then my address. But no money. Yay for you and MONEY!
