Queenly Opportunities This Week

Dear Y'all,

Just a quick note to alert you to some Extremely Queenly Opportunities:

If you are in or can arrange to be in the vicinity of JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI on WEDNESDAY, JUNE 25—then by all means, take yourself to LEMURIA, my home and favorite bookstore, at 5 P.M. on account of BOBBY COLE will be there signing copies of his exciting thriller The Dummy Line and The Cutest Boy in the World will be there with him. So you can get a signed book and squeeze TCBITW—all at the same time—we do love efficiency, don't we?

Ok, this one is for EVERYBODY EVERYWHERE in the U.S.: Those of you who have been to the Parade, you KNOW who RANDALL WALLACE is—he's KILTBOY. But to those of you who haven't yet been to the Parade (boohoo!), you only know him as the guy who wrote Braveheart, We Were Soldiers, Man in the Iron Mask and Pearl Harbor. See, if you'd come to the Parade, you'd get to meet him in person!

Well, RW/Kiltboy has a NEW SHOW airing for the first time this week on the DISCOVERY CHANNEL—the series is called Fight or Die—and it's is about historic battles and the staggering courage of our Armed Forces. I have seen the pilot and it is enthralling and very, very moving.  Tune in or TIVO, THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 9 PM, CDT—or check your local listing.

And here's another one of our Spud Studs who's done a Good Thang:  BILL FITZHUGH.  Ok, I'm gonna qualify my endorsement of him somewhat—he USED to be a very reliable and very popular Spud Stud—he USED to be dancing in attendance at Parade Time—HOWEVER, in recent years—we ain’t seen hide nor hair nor hairy hide of him at that time and we are, frankly, miffed.

So, as a GOOD FAITH offering—I am going to tell you about and tout his newest book and I want you to go and BUY it and buy enough of them that he has NO EXCUSE for NOT coming to the Parade in '09.  If we do this and he doesn't—we are DONE WITH HIM and will be summarily trading him in on a mule, which we will name Bill Fitzhugh.

The book is The Adventures of Slim & Howdy—by him and two other guys, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn—but they have never done ANYTHING for us and so we do not care, at this point, about THEM at ALL. The book does include one of their CD's though so there’s that, I suppose.


Hope you're having a great summer!  Let me hear from you!

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!
