The ribbon got hung from a picture frame right away as I didn't want it to get creased. The non-Arabian sized dressage pad went immediately to the barn and was promptly used by the non-winning horse. Speedy didn't care and since he can't read, he didn't know about it anyway. The certificate sat on my printer getting dusty and semi-wrinkled.
My husband has had most of my Christmas break off, so I haven't had much time to shop or run errands, not that I like to do either of those things anyway. Hubby went back to work on Tuesday which was coincidently my birthday. What better gift to myself than to frame my most wonderful new certificate? So off to Target I went. No way was I going to spend very much on framing said certificate. Sure enough, I found a lovely frame for the (pricey) sum of $12.99. It was the correct size and seemed fancy enough for the honor which it was to display. I bought it, and an hour later it was hung. The tri-color ribbon was moved from the random picture frame from which it was hanging to be placed quite ceremoniously in the center.
And that's the end of that story.
