MUCH ADO ABOUT LARAMIE AWARDS
So nice when people you admire are recognized; so hard to know who to hope wins when friends are in the competition. Below are several people I count as friends, some closer than others. I want to recognize them for their accomplishment.
Congratulations to all the winners, but especially to my good friends Jacquie Rogers and Susan Horsnell, and my online friends Peggy L. Henderson and Lorrie Farrelly--as well as to all the other finalists.
