I’ve won second and third place and been a finalist in different writing contests. But that first place has always been elusive.
My husband promised to make me a oak shelf for my first trophy with the first place win.
Guess what? I finally won first place.

Again, congratulations, and thank you for entering. Please let me know if you have any questions.
No trophy. Not with this win.
I guess that means no oak shelf, too.
