    Well thank you very much. Nice to see Medusa win! [​IMG]

    She had already gone to roost when I learned the great news. Thanks, eh...she'll be getting extra special treats tomorrow morn. [​IMG]

    A great big thank you to ChickenCanoe, if he had not told me about these comb contests, I would not have entered Medusa. [​IMG]

    Thank you to the people that run these contests...thank you for volunteering your time and energies. It is fun and much appreciated.
