Good work, DB. We saw it while in Del Mar last weekend. It looked terrific. As usual!

Well, ladies--it's that time of year again!

I delivered and set up my exhibit at the fairgrounds last weekend for judging this week. It reflects largely on the 2017 season and postseason, including many newspaper headlines and related coverage. I doubt I'll win anything, but you never know. I've been surprised before.

This just in--I finally learned that I won another third place award. Better than none!

Good. We'll look at it when we're there this weekend.

Well, this was the weekend for set-up at the Home & Hobby Show at the County Fair. It took place earlier than usual because the fair is opening earlier than usual, on June 1 this year. I must say that I feel quite certain it will not win an award this year because the display is very thin in recent acquisitions. I've added a few things, and in my opinion the best promotional giveaway from last season was the sand globe--so that is the best new item I have, other than my World Series ticket and the W.S. program from 2018. My sister also gifted me with some great finds from the library, including out-of-print books from the 1940s and '50s which I'm sure have some value although they are not in the best of condition.

But people who are looking for a treasure trove of new collection items from me will be disappointed. This year, pride over competition. Smile

We will still look for it anyway. Smile

We saw the collection, Linda. Went to the fair last weekend. Yes it did look more bare than usual but you had some interesting finds.

Well, I've been informed by a friend that there is another Dodger collector exhibiting in Home & Hobby this year!

When I have my own "day at the fair" next week, I'm determined to find out who that is and what they showcased.

I missed that. We did not see all the displays, though.
