All Right!! My first ribbon ever and blue to boot!
Many thanks to everyone that voted and commented. The encouraging comments are greatly appreciated.
I have to give some of the credit for this photo to my son (thanks Cody!), who helped me come up with the text for the drawing title block, such as the "company" name and the generic term for the egg.
