New Book--Free, Ho, Ho, Ho and Zippity-Doo-Dah®


Dear Y'all

NO, The Cutest Boy in the World HAS NOT found my missing birthday present YET!

How quickly can you send an email with your snail mail address in it? Speed is important because the FIRST 100 of you who do it are gonna get a FREE BOOK! My very dear friend (and extremely cute) friend Steven Wallace at Unbridled Books is introducing an absolutely wonderful new book by CLAUDIA STERNBACH called Reading Lips—A Memoir of Kisses.

What better way to launch a new book than by getting the QUEENDOM to love it first?! The book will be out next year—but 100 OF Y’ALL are gonna get advance copies of it. All you have to do is—quick like a bunny—email Steven here:  swallace@unbridledbooks.com Tell him you’re a Queen and you’re dying to read this new book—give him your mailing address and if you’re in the first 100, he'll send you a free book. Lemme know on Facebook if you’re a winner and then after we read it, we can yak about it.

About Facebook: I have 5,000 “friends” and FB won’t let me have any more than that, no matter what—The Promise, nothing worked—5,000 is their absolute limit for some unknowable reason. BUT—I do have 2 FAN PAGES—one for Jill Conner Browne and one for the Sweet Potato Queens so be sure to “like” those and watch for Funny Stuff. Even if we’re “friends,” come join the Fan Pages, too—lotsa different folks and hilarious stories show up on ‘em. You for sure don’t want to miss the updates on My (STILL) Missing Birthday Present!

Thanks for all the prayers, cards, and emails during my recent visit Under the Knife to repair (not replace) my bum hip. I am recovering quite satisfactorily, I must say. Have even been able to leave off the cumbersome walker (which, as we discussed on Facebook, was left sadly unadorned by my Precious Darlin’ George who has apparently (though inexplicably) found things he would rather do than bedazzle my walking sticks—it’s a Sad Day).

Be sure to shop the AFTER CHRISTMAS SALES FOR BATTERY-OPERATED LIGHTS for your PARADE OUTFITS. If you haven’t heard, the first ever Zippity-Doo-Dah® Parade and Festival in Fondren is gonna be at NIGHT! So, in addition to all the sequins and rhinestones you can carry, you’ll also want to be LIT UP to further enhance your own personal Sparkliness along the Parade route.

Whatever holiday or Holy Day you are celebrating about now, I wish you and yours peace and joy. As for me and my house, we are rejoicing in the CHRISTMAS season—a time when Gifts are given and received—and Gratitude fills our hearts. At the same time, let us all be mindful that, no matter what our beliefs, this can be an unbearably painful time for so many around us—let’s pay attention and do what we can to make it better for somebody today and say a special prayer or thanks to our Troops who keep us free to choose how we'll celebrate.

Happy Almost New Year—and ZIPPITY-DOO-DAH® IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER! Time to get your bluebird ON!

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!
