Puppies, Politics and Praise


Dear Y'all,

PLEEEEZE CLICK HERE to help us win $50,000 for

Queen TammyPippa’s Pups by voting for


This weekend is the close of the October contest. You pushed us over the top last month—and if we can win this one, TOO—well, soooo many good things can happen for these abandoned animals at the ONLY no-kill facility in Rankin County, Mississippi. Pippa and her husband Charles worked for years with many dogs at their home and many more farmed out to willing foster parents. Then they qualified for a grant to buy this great location out in the country and through donations, were able to house a good many furbabies there. The PEPSI money from the last win will make it possible to house and care for many more and if we can win THIS MONTH, TOO—facilities can be added for KITTIES! Only takes a second—and you can even vote by TEXTING* 103186 to 73774—how easy is that?? (*Standard text messaging rates apply.)

There are many elections taking place in our country right now. I would not presume to tell you HOW to vote but I do have to INSIST that you DO vote! That voting booth is SACRED GROUND—we are standing on the shoulders of many who have fought and are fighting for us to have that Right—and we are standing on the graves of many more. I don’t care if it’s raining or cold or inconvenient—GET OUT THERE AND VOTE!

Plans are really shaping up for the 2011 ZIPPITY-DOO-DAH™ FESTIVAL AND PARADE IN FONDREN and I gotta tell you—I’m too excited! I just received my first shipment (first of sooo many!) of LIGHTS for our float—it being a NIGHT PARADE and all—and oh, man! We are gonna be DAZZLIN’!! 

Just wanna take a second to thank our SPONSORS who are making this fabulous weekend possible for all of us: Firefly® Sweet Tea Vodka, BancorpSouth, Pepsi/Brown Bottling Group, Southern Beverage/Michelob ULTRA, Comcast, The Every Day Gourmet and of course Clear Channel Radio/Q-105.1FM.

And a HUGE thank you to PATTY PECK HONDA—they’re giving us a fabulous HONDA INSIGHT to raffle!! You could go home from the Million Queen March ™ in a brand new CAR! We LOOOVE Patty Peck Honda. In fact, recently, I got myownself a brand new Honda Crosstour from Patty Peck Honda. In the meantime before the Parade, GRILL and CHILL on their Facebook page, Click Here to check it out.

All the Zippity-Doo-Dah™ Festival and Parade goings-on, of course, are to raise $$ and awareness for Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children and so we are beyond thrilled that the actual DR. BLAIR E. BATSON HISVERYOWNSELF, who just celebrated his 90th birthday, is going to be the GRAND MARSHAL! We will get to meet and honor this great man who has done more than anybody to HEP THE CHIRREN!
