The Pewter Plate Award

It's the season for surprises.  Yesterday when a FedEx man dropped off an unrequested package, I was astonished to find it contained a pewter plate from Highlights magazine.  Apparently, I have won the Pewter Plate Award for their category "Nonfiction Feature of the Year, Independent Readers" for my "Candy Experiments" article, published in October 2010.

My daughter decreed that I should display the plate where I could look at it.  After I vetoed a precarious perch in my study, she nestled it in my windowsill, where I can reread the text if I crane my neck sideways.

May it provide me with inspiration for many more award-worthy articles!
