Puppy Kisses, Parade Update, *@#$ Hackers


Dear Y'all,

Thanks to y’all’s help with voting for ARF of Mississippi. They WON $50,000 from the Pepsi Challenge in December!!! I bring you HUGE KISSES and HEARTFELT THANK-YOUs from Queen TammyPippa, Spud Stud Charles and many, many, many HAPPY PUPPIES!

Parade Time is drawing nigh and I find I enjoy the anticipation of it almost as much as the actual Weekend. Stay tuned to the PARADE page for updates as they develop but suffice it to say that the first ever ZIPPITY-DOO-DAH® PARADE & FESTIVAL in FABULOUS FUNKY FONDREN is shaping up to be unbearably FUN!

Remember—it’s a NIGHT PARADE so now is the time to shop for battery-operated lights for your outfits!


—relax and work on your outfits.

I will have the Mini-Float Rules and Regs for you ASAP so stay tuned if you’re planning to decorate a golf cart for the Parade.

CAUTIONARY NOTE: The SPQ website was recently hacked (I know, hope they die)—not to worry, all our $$ transactions go through PayPal, so that’s cool. Our website store does not process credit cards; so, that info is safe on our end. HOWEVER, if you EVER try to open SweetPotatoQueens.com (or any website, for that matter) and you get a screen that LOOKS like it’s a Microsoft page or some other company telling you that you “need” some anti-viral software—DON’T DO IT! E-MAIL US IMMEDIATELY.

Under NO circumstances should you purchase this “anti-virus protection” from that page.

Trust me, we do not have any kind of “arrangement” with Microsoft! Bill Gates never calls, he never sends flowers—he’s easily one of the worst boyfriends I ever had but I bet he hates these hackers even more than I do, if that’s possible.

As we approach ZIPPITY-DOO-DAH®, let me just take a moment to say HOW MUCH I love our sponsors:  Patty Peck Honda, Bancorp South, Pepsi/Brown Bottling, Southern Beverage/Michelob Ultra, Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka, Comcast, Clear Channel Radio, McGehee Cruise and Travel, The Everyday Gourmet, The Cirlot Agency, The McKewen Company, and the Jackson Convention and Visitors Bureau

Overwhelming appreciation also to the Fondren Association of Businesses, the Fondren Renaissance Foundation and of course, the fabulous, funky SoFo Girls—whom you will meet and adore! And while I’m at it, let me just say how much you are gonna LOOOVE Fondren—it’s like a little village all its own, nothing but locally-owned shops and restaurants that cannot WAIT to show off for you!

Our host hotel—the Hilton-Jackson and our other “SPQ family” hotels—Cabot Lodge North and the Marriott Courtyard Suites—are making ready to welcome you in true Queenly Style, as always. Let me know if you need reservation assistance—or anything else for that matter—I live to serve!

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!
