Granted that she looked so much better than her competition. (Laura, darling, your exercise regimen and diet are working. You look stunning, girlfriend. Now pay attention to that cowboy husband of yours and beat some sense into him.)
Here's a view of Laura, her hubby, and honorees.
I don't know who these three upstarts are, but Laura owned that gown! (A tad too matronly to my way of thinking, but then Laura has an image to maintain.) Yes, gentle reader, though ladies one and two are not related, they managed to choose the same hairdo as well!
Laura laughed the incident off and changed into a black gown for the rest of the evening.
Wonder what the other three ladies did.
