Ribbon pinched at the fair

I too experienced a theft during the fair. Not like the cute piglets and rabbits, which were thankfully found, but of the blue ribbon awarded my clay sculpture of Kwan Yin. It was disappointing to me that my friends and fellow ceramists couldn’t see my award. I hope that the thief will get blue ribbons in the future, not by pinching them, but by earning them.
