Bethe said she didn’t want to crow, but you know that has never stopped me. I received an email from the U Akron Budget Administrator this AM informing me that I also had won a $100 juror's award in the School of Art show that just came down yesterday. The first time I’ve received a cash award. Lets see, that’s about 1/10% of overall costs. Oh well. It is a retirement lifelong wish fulfillment to study photography. I am glad I can share it with you all through these gatherings, that is the wish fulfillment, not the $100. I’m not buying the beer.
