Setting the table brings great rewards
The girls standing in front of me at the Dollar Tree carried handfuls of pinwheels, candy and sodas. They were decorating their animal stalls for the county fair.
A few doors down, a mother and daughter were cutting yards of fabric at American Valley Hardware. They were building a tent for their garden at the county fair.
Me, I was scooping up plates, vases and candlesticks. I had entered all four days of the table-setting competition at the county fair.
