Kacey Jones, Father's Day & Jackson Hole, WY


Dear Y'all,

For all Queens and Spud Studs™ in the TUSCALOOSA, ALABAMA area—GREAT NEWS! This Friday night, June 5, you have the privilege of being highly entertained by our very own KACEY JONES—at BROWN’S CORNER! Doors open at 7:30 p.m.—the show is 8:30-10:30—tickets are $12 each or $20 per couple. For more info and/or reservations, call 205-342-9899. I bet, if you’re lucky, you can also meet SPQ™ WANNABE MARTHA JEAN ALFORD at that show!

Go right now to www.writetv.org to watch what is probably the Best Interview EVER DONE with Yours Truly. Teresa Miller, with Oklahoma State University, is the host of the show Writing Out Loud and she is an absolutely fabulous interviewer.  There are lots of interviews with Other Writers on the site as well and the BLOG this month is devoted to my newest book, American Thighs: The Sweet Potato Queens’ Guide to Preserving Your Assets. Check it out!

It’s nearly FATHER’S DAY. My own Daddy has been gone since 1982 and I miss him more every single year. Amazingly, I have been blessed with a BONUS DADDY—The Cutest Daddy in the World—father of my much-adored husband, The Cutest Boy in the World and I got the Cutest Mama in the World in the deal as well. I tell him (the husband) all the time that THEY are one of the main reasons I would marry him all over again today. How many of you out there REALLY LOOOOVE your in-laws? There was not a great wind generated by the raising of many hands there! 

If you’ve still got your Daddy, love up on him extra hard and know how lucky you are to have him. Be mindful and prayerful of those folks who’ve lost theirs, or those who had not such good ones and also those guys who’ve never gotten to BE somebody’s Daddy.  It’s not necessarily a happy day for everybody—so in our own celebration, let’s do remember our friends who may have a hard time with it.

On Mother’s Day, we had a store-wide 20% off sale. We’re offering the same deal for Father’s Day—you can get Dad a signed copy of The Dummy Line, by Bobby Cole, a Spud Stud™ T-shirt, some Fat Mama’s Knock You Naked Margarita Mix, and any number of other amusing guy-type items. But, you can also buy anything you want/need FOR YOURSELF—because YOU KNOW YOUR DADDY WOULD WANT YOU TO HAVE IT!  That’s what Daddy’s are best at—SPOILING their Little Queens—US!


JUNE 25-28—I will be at the JACKSON HOLE (WYOMING) WRITER’S CONFERENCE and The Cutest Boy in the World WILL be with me—y’all come play!

Remember, if your book club is doing one of my books—send me an eMail and I will call the meeting and play with y’all on the phone—Big Fun!  And you can ask me anything—except, of course, anything Algebra-related.

Come FRIEND me on FACEBOOK, check out the SPQ™ BLOG on the website—see The Ugliest Shoes in the World and their travels--and watch for me to begin TWITTING very soon. Yes, I know it’s officially called “tweeting”—but somehow my version seems more apropos. As soon as the Evil Henchman at the Cirlot Agency can communicate to me in Plain English how to do it, I will commence—but so far, he has been incapable of mastering that lost art and he insists on trying to speak to me in computer-ese, which, as I have told him REPEATEDLY, is like dogs barking to me.

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!
