Last year, we bought my Jeep before we headed to the Mrs. International Pageant in Chicago. Because we don’t believe in credit cards, it’s been difficult to rent a big vehicle each year with a debit card. David didn’t want to see a melt down at the airport again so he bought me the Commander.
The first thing I noticed was the BIG back window. “Marketing space,” it said to me. So I contacted my twitter friend Jason, to get a sign put on the back window.
When we got to Chicago, my car made it onto the Pageant Cast’s facebook page before a photo of Mrs. Oklahoma did.
Well, as of July 31st, I am no longer the director of the Mrs. Oklahoma International Pageant. So it was time to remove the sign.
It was pretty easy to use a razor blade to remove the sign.
Then some nail polish remover to remove the sticky stuff and some Windex and…
Turn the page.
I read the book Muscogee Daughter on the plane to Singapore. It didn’t last the entire 15 hours! What a terrific book.
As the director of the Mrs. Oklahoma International pageant, I hear stories of courage and self-healing all the time from my titleholders. This story was just like that.
Susan Supernaw was Miss Oklahoma 1971. She came from a background of abuse and poverty to succeed in life as a cheerleader, presidential scholar and Miss Oklahoma. The story follows her journey through a rough childhood to the Miss America pageant. I particularly enjoyed reading about her Indian heritage and her spiritual awareness.
I first read a review of this book in the Oklahoman and knew I wanted to read it. It was as good as they said and I could not allow myself to sleep on the plane until it was finished.
If you like a story of personal achievement and strength of character, you will like this book and I highly recommend it!
