I never thought about this side of the coin.
A few last minute emails from friends and competitors alike. Thanks for wishing me luck, and to those, and everyone, I wish you all the best this year. A few brought up a category in which we do not enter, yet still get graded. It's the Journals.
With all that went down this last year, I'd probably be last in consideration. I do believe some changes were made after all. Maybe the journals did their part?
Some have wondered where I have been in the last few weeks. A little bit working on a few sets and looking for a new home. I've been fortunate with a few grades and disappointed on more than a few.
As for competition, I am done. No more to enter, no more coming back. I did make a few 100% sets I didn't figure on. The next few days I'll be taking it easy in the VA hospital. Nothing serious. They just like to see if I still bleed,red. I like to call it "Project Pincushion." I won't be out until Friday.
May all the effort and hard work be shown, and those deserving be awarded.
