Surgery, No Gift, and Boys & Girls Clubs Benefit


Dear Y'all,

I trust that your Thanksgrabbing holiday was everything you dreamed it would be. Mine certainly was: A week before Thanksgiving, I had surgery to repair (not replace) my hip which had been giving me fits for years. This put me on (A) drugs and (B) a walker for Thanksgiving Day. I did plan ahead however and thus had done almost all my cooking IN ADVANCE and The Cutest Boy in the World had only to thaw and heat our feast, in between toting and fetching for me, of which he has done PLEN-TY.

Also, shortly before Thanksgiving, I had occasion to turn 27 and thus be in a position to Receive Gifts, especially from said TCBITW. (OK, I was 58, but still entitled to present(s). Now, TCBITW is prolly the reigning world champion present-picker-outter—he does a mind-bogglingly great job of selecting Just the Right Thing to please me, present-wise. It would seem that the ONLY thing he is BETTER at than choosing gifts is HIDING them.

Oh, yeah. My birthday was November 23rd and despite many top-to-bottom and everything-in-between RANSACKINGS, he has NOT been able to re-locate my birthday present YET. BWAHAHAHA! At this point, I cannot imagine anything that he could have BOUGHT that would give me anywhere NEAR the enjoyment I have experienced witnessing these marathon hunts. (And if you’re in the market for some new, never-before-heard cuss words? Lemme know—he’s been firing at will for days.)


I will be in Fort Myers, this very FRIDAY.

It's a huge fundraising event for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County:


Mad Hatter Tea Party

Friday, 3 December at 2:00 PM

Harborside Event Center

1375 Monroe Street - Fort Myers, FL 33901

For ticket info click on the above and YES, THERE WILL BE A BIG A** CROWN UP FOR GRABS! It’s all to HEP THESE CHIRREN and you know how I feel about that so come on out and play! Wear your sparklies and bring your checkbooks! Actually, your boss should be buying entire tables and bringing y’all to this event. Tell her/him I said so and that if she/he FAILS TO DO THIS, well! Then she/he is just telling everybody that he/she DOES NOT CARE about the CHIRREN at the Boys & Girls Clubs! So there! (We don’t LIKE to resort to guilt tactics but hey, who are we to disparage Whatever Works—it bein’ For the Chirrren and all.)
