**Ah, takes me back to them good ole days. That was the day I married Lureen. Saw her in that weddin' dress and just couldn't move fast enough.**

Empress of Everything

Well red always was my best color.


**The Empress notices the irony of talking about color when posting a b&w photo but there can't be nothing done about it right now. Gotta run.**

((Jack runs outside to see what's keeping everyone.))

**What? Valet service? Folks, this is a charity dance. There ain't no valet parkin', now get in here! The band's already gone through three fiddles and workin' on a fourth!**

LaShawn:

%%I'm late, I'm late...I can't believe that Randall, rushing me - he doesn't give a woman a bit of time to get ready and I sure can't show up looking like I have the fashion sense of some TriDelt or somethin!

Just take Easter, for instance.  I went through a hunnerd hats, and all of them were wrong, wrong, wrong!  Finally settled on something sedate, but geez, the swag I had to wade thru!!!  Why am I a hunnerd plus miles from Nieman Marcus, hunh?

Just check out that trouble I had finding an Easter Hat...Randall was no help, I tell you...he just sits himself outside the dressing room and nods, no matter what I come out in - I swear I could be wearin a feed sack and he'd still nod and approve!!  His mind's elsewhere, on crappie fishin', I reckon.

Here are a few I considered and rejected:




Eventually, I just gave up and wore a small white pillbox...better to err on the side of conservatism here in Childress, I figure, at least until Randall gets established.  Jackie O was classy, right?  I sure wouldn't want any of his coworkers to think his wife is too flamboyant or somethin!

But now, the Charity Ball is here!

I swear, I don't think my heartbeat will ever get back to normal!  Getting invited to that, I think, means that Randall is finally accepted here in the Childress inner circle - so much rides on this one single night.  I sure hope nothin' goes wrong.  Nothin' I want more than for Randall to be acceptable so I we can make the right kinds of friends.

I'm waffling between two dresses:


or....



I think choice 2 makes my posterior look like one of Roy Taylor's horses.  Guess I'll go with #1.  Sure wish I had a girlfriend here to bounce this stuff off of.  If wardrobe fails to impress, I'll just have to fall back on my bubbly personality, I reckon.  I don't think I've ever met a soul who didn't like me.  Though there was that one fraternity brother of Randall's at A&M...but I reckon that's old news...%%

LUREEN:

(to LaShawn)

You can bounce anything you want off me, GirlFRiend! Just remember I wuz Tri Delt and you wazn't! That shows who's bottom and who's top! I wouldn't say that about your posterior--we wouldn't want to insult Roy Taylor and his horses! Tell you what--why don't you dance with ma husband so I can see that cute lil posterior in motion?!
