2008 Tour Photos & Pre-Parade

Dear Y'all,

Ok—I KNOW KYLE HAS NOT PUT ALL THE BOOK TOUR PHOTOS UP YET—and we’re sorry! We had to hit the ground running when we finished the tour—IT’S PARADE TIME! But the TOUR PHOTOS WILL BE POSTED—after the Parade!


Parade Time is drawing nigh in a hurry and we cannot WAIT!  And lemme tell you this:  you better be sure you wear your sunglasses when you look at our float on account of we have used approximately 1,200 pounds of glitter on it already and George just had me order MORE! Don’t forget, we’re hauling it up to the Hilton after the Parade so y’all can get on it (upon my very throne, even!) and have your photos made in all your finery. I’m thinking Christmas Card Photos here! 


Call Bravo! to make your reservations for the Big Hat Luncheon—601-982-8111.  Nobody but me has seen our new hats for this year, naturally, but I can assure you—we will be visible from outer space.  Or at least MY hat will be visible from afar—the other SPQ’s will have VERY FINE HATS and they will be tickled to death with ’em—UNTIL THEY SEE MINE—bwahahahaha!  It is A Good Thing to be The Boss Queen—and I can’t wait to see all of you other BOSS QUEENS in full regalia at the Big A** Barbecue at the Hilton after the Parade. I want to see all the Chapters in the Big Giant Conga Line—as Baby Jan with the Earth Angels whips us all into a dancin’ frenzy—and I want to see the Boss Queens leading the way! After 26 years, I will FINALLY get to see Y’ALL’S OUTFITS—can’t wait!


If you need a room at the Hilton, call 601-957-2800 and ask for Billie Burns—he is your ticket in. There are SOME Bathrobe Brunch Tickets still available, I’m told but I would not be dawdling about gettin’ ‘em—Brenda’s Shrimp and Grits are NOT to be missed and don’t forget, free Barefoot® Champagne this year—whoo hoo!


Your Weekend Pass will get you in to view the FIRST (EVER!) ANNUAL SPQ JELLO-WRASSLIN’ COMPETITION and PHOTO SHOOT! I have ordered the outfits for the SPQ JELLO WRASSLIN’ TEAM and we are gonna be soooo cute!  Randall Wallace (writer of Braveheart, We Were Soldiers, Man in The Iron Mask, Pearl Harbor) has EAGERLY joined the ranks of the SPQ Jello Wrasslers—and I KNOW you are gonna want your photo made with HIM.  And then, there will be the much-acclaimed Jello Death Match/Smoosh Down between those Infamous Queens—The Tempestuous Texas Tornado and the Perky but Pesky Puppy Love!  All to benefit BLAIR E. BATSON CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL, naturally—anythang for the chirren—that’s our motto!


Lots of new events this year—and for less $$—all thanks to our sponsors MICHELOB ULTRA and PATTY PECK HONDA.  We’ll be enjoying free barbecue and champagne thanks to the wonderful folks at Country Pleasin’ and Barefoot.  Check the complete schedule on the website so you don’t miss out on anything!


See you SOOOON!!!
