Dear Y'all,

THIS SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 3—the big REVEAL at the first ever PATTY PECK HONDA “HELP MY HONDA” Grand Finale! Y’all voted on this and helped Blake Thomas win—come see the transformation of his 1994 Honda! I hear it is astounding and I can’t wait to see it myownself. Jan Michaels with Clear Channel Radio and I will be there—eating all the free hamburgers and hot dogs we can hold—and I, personally, will be taking advantage of the 25% off on service on my Crosstour! Info (and 25% off coupon!) right here.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, I will be in RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA! Big FUNdraiser for the Children’s Miracle Network—and YES, there will be a Big A** Crown raffled! Click on the link for ticket info for the Rapid City Regional Hospital Foundation SWEET POTATO QUEEN  GALA . I’ve never been to SD and I do not want to be the ONLY one there wearing SEQUINS—so come on out and let’s hep the chirren up yonder!

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, I’ll be at the PURPLE FOR PEACE LUNCHEON for the Mississippi Coalition Against Domestic Violence, at our very own HILTON-JACKSON.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6—I'll be doing a FUNraiser for the Mississippi Boy Choir, a MINUTE-TO-WIN-IT type event. Contact Lelon for more infomation.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29—it is BOO BASH AT THE BEACH—huge FUNdraiser for Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital in Pensacola. LOTSA QUEENS coming to this event—from all over the country—it’s turning into a kind of un-O-fficial Halfway to Zippity Doo Dah® deal, I swear! Y’all COME—it will be an extra chance to see SPQ™ WANNABE FIFI from Texas NOT WIN THE BIG A** CROWN—yet again! We certainly never get tired of THAT! Bless her heart—she buys soooo many tickets every year in Jackson and does she ever win? She does NOT! Did her Queenly buddy Martha Jean swear that if she herself ever won, she would hand it over to Fifi, out of love and sympathy for all the times Feef has failed to win? She did so swear—but then she did SO WIN and did she give it to Fifi? Oh, my word, NO, SHE SOOO DID NOT! She wore that thang all weekend, proudly wore it home and Feef has yet to even touch it. 

It’s the end of summer and we could all use a little perkin’ up, I reckon. So, how about you get 15% off everything in the SPQ™ store between now and October 1 at NOON, Central? Will that help your feelings? Good time to shop for Christmas—and also, if you wanna be an SPQ™ for Halloween—get your tiara, wigs and shades NOW! (FYI: Shipping Tammy gets crabby when you call her the day before Halloween crying because you just thought of this for your costume and you’ll just DIE if you don’t get your Queenly stuff in time. She is very small but she packs a lotta crabby in her tiny frame—SPARE ME THIS, PLEASE—ORDER NOW!)

The NEW T-SHIRTS that were on sale at the Parade are available online in the SPQ™ Store—tank tops for the first time, even! *A CAUTIONARY WORD ABOUT THE NEW SHIRTS: The photos are terrible! The sample shirts had been in Shipping Tammy's car for weeks after the Parade and I made the Personal Executive Decision NOT to Iron The Stupid Things Before TCBITW Took the Photos! Your shirts will look significantly better than the ones in the photos! Bwahah!

A great new book will be out next week: I’m Not the Biggest B** in This Relationship. (I have to use the ** or the Spam People won’t send the letter!) The book is a collection of stories about DOGS—compiled by WADE ROUSE—www.waderouse.com—and I have one in there that I think you will looove. Just FYI, the title of mine was SUPPOSED to be “Fairy TAILS Can Come True”—but it came out “Tales.” Sigh. The book is fabulous and Wade is donating a percentage of all sales to help animals.

YOU CAN WIN A FREE COPY!  Just send an e-mail here: GARY@WADEROUSE.COM and say something along the lines of “Pick me! Pick me! I want a free book sooo bad!” and be sure to include your snail mail address so they know where to send it if you win. FIRST 25 ENTRIES RECEIVED WILL WIN. I have nothing to do with this contest, I cannot help you win—you are on your own here—GO FOR IT! You are gonna loooove this book!

BE SURE TO MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THE 2nd Annual Zippity Doo Dah® Parade Weekend in Fondren, 22-25 March 2012. We had an OUTSTANDING inaugural event, raising right at $65,000.00 for Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, and want y’all to help us beat that amount next year!

Write to me anytime at hrhjill@sweetpotatoqueens.com —with funny stories, GOOD OBITUARIES, and/or Questions about Life Itsownself—I'm often wrong, but NEVER IN DOUBT!
