“LA Ink,” Store, and HERE WE COME, AGAIN


Dear Y'all,

First of all, let me wish for all of you a peaceful and joyous time. For me and mine, that means “Merry Christmas,” but for those of you of different faiths—or even none at all—I wish the same peace and joy. And, Lordamercy, I pray most fervently for a PEACEFUL and PROSPEROUS New Year for us all, too!

On a note of giddy frivolity, I am tickled to inform you that we will all be treated to the totally amazing vision of an O-fficial SPQ™ TATTOO being born on the arm of a True Queen! Tune in to LA Ink this Thursday, 18 DECEMBER on TLC (check your local listings) and witness this Queenly First! You can get a sneak preview of Queen Kim Davis' SPQ™ Tat by clicking HERE. And yes, all Permissions were cleared first by Bad Dog Management.

This Saturday, 20 December, the ACTUAL Sweet Potato Queens® will be in Full Regalia at Highland Village Sh*pping Center in Jackson taking Christmas photos with puppies and such as part of a fundraising effort for Queen Pippa’s Animal Rescue Fund, ARF, and another animal rescue organization, CARA. Christmas At Highland Village is sponsored by our Favorite Station, Q105.1, and the lovely and talented Queen Jan Michaels! If you can't join us, you can listen live to the broadcast on line. Book sales will be conducted by our hometown independent bookseller, Lemuria Books. Shipping Tammy will be selling SPQ™ merchandise. Another Queenly First: I can't tell you exactly What It Is BUT you won’t want to miss this Once-In-A-Lifetime-Chance for a very, very unique gift for your favorite Queen and yourveryownself, all the while helping homeless puppies and kittens!!! Not a bad way to fritter away a few hours. Oh, and when you get a bit peckish or thirsty, be sure to stop by Bravo!, and give Jeff a squeeze for me!

Be advised that Shipping Tammy is sitting down in the middle of the road, refusing to work again—all because she wants to be with her pesky FAMILY! I hate it when she does this kind of thing. This will affect YOU in that we won’t be shipping ANYTHING from the SPQ™ Store from NOON on 17 DECEMBER until 2 JANUARY! So, if you anticipate a need for anything in there—you’d best be hopping on your computer and firing that order off PRONTO because you know how she gets—and we can tell she is totally serious about this—she ain’t comin’ in, no matter what. 

Go right now and check my JANUARY 2009 Calendar (NOT the 2008 one!)—and make note of when we are coming to YOUR FAVORITE BOOKSTORE and be sure you are there to greet us upon arrival!  American Thighs: The Sweet Potato Queens’ Guide to Preserving Your Assets is (or very soon will be) available everywhere. Remember to bring your old books to the signings—I’m happy to sign them as well. And I know you need no reminding re:  Su*k-Up Offerings!

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!
