Tammy's Giant Angora gets the nod from judge Cheryl.

Judge Allan likes Arianna's Satin Angora.

Arianne has her Satin Angora scarf out for people to touch.

On Sunday, Tammy and Arianne visit In-N-Out Burger.   We take In-N-Out for granted but out of state visitors consider In-N-Out a must-visit spot in California.

Kevin says, "Don't you girls had enough fun, can we go home now?"
