October 22, 2013 - Portland Coronation:
Forty years ago I made my first visit to the “City of Roses”… Portland … it was my very first coronation out of state. I was the reigning “Baroness II de San Diego” having been defeated in my campaign for Empress II de San Diego (I placed fourth among eight Empress candidates). Well it was Empress Doni Lame’s coronation and Empress Elsa Daniels was on her way to the throne. Well this little ole baroness could not believe her eyes as I witness one of the most glamorous, magical, and exciting coronation ball ever and right then and there I decided, I too wanted to be an “Empress” more than ever and just like Doni and Elsa !!!!
