We had this lovely lady, Miss Bettie b Goode come and talk to me during the final score tallying as we were sitting near her family table. Not only was she a total delight of a person but she really convinced me to just work hard and bite the bullet and do the pageant this year as planned!! Eeppp!! I wished her luck with the final vote and she so graciously answered: I’ve already won just by entering. She was wonderful
