First of all, congratulations to Lisa on her third place in Paducah.
And a woe is me because the FIRST time in seven years that I don't go to Paducah is when Mariya Waters has won Best of Show for Rennaisance Revival. I have emailed Mariya to ask if she was going to enter it, and then I forgot completely about it. The only thing keeping me going is that it will be in the Museum at some point, unless she doesn't give it up. But my opportunity of taking photographs of it at the show to give me daily inspiration are gone. Hey.. it only takes 10 hours to get there.... I could sleep in my car... We were going to Amishland on Friday, I wonder if my husband would mind an eight and one half hour side trip?
