Three blind mice. I flat can’t wait! Meemaw and Pawpaw have done invited a celebrity chef team to cook up a Thanksgivin’ Feast! Y’all are all invited! To Meemaw’s House We Go! Hummmm. What’s that beat up 1930s Ford doin’ in the driveway? Oh well! I’m starved! Momma! Get the door for me so I can haul in these pies! What the? Watch out! There’s a ding dang monkey wearin’ one of those little red hats swingin’ from Meemaw’s antique chandelier! And what’s that racket in the kitchen!
“Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk.” Ploink!
“What’s’a’matter with ya? Ya nuts?”
“Hand me that turkey.”
Oh. My. Ever. Livin’. Gosh! Meemaw’s done hired The Three Stooges to cook up Thanksgivin’ supper! I sense a disaster! I sense a disaster! What the? I smell smoke! Whoop! Whoop! Whoop! Watch out! Here comes Larry, Moe and Curly and their chef coats are on flamin’ fire! Call 911 immediately! Now Momma’s got a holt of all three of ‘em and she’s just a slappin’ all of ‘em into the Friday after Thanksgiving! Which reminds me of the wildest, coolest Holiday promotion EVER!
I’m talkin’ ‘bout Whidby Jewelers owned by Madisonian Ben Whidby and located at 117 West Jefferson St., in downtown Madison across from Town Park! Ok y’all! Ben FINALLY SPILLED THE BEANS on his PROMOTION TO END ALL PROMOTIONS! You’ll read all ‘bout it in his fabulous advertisements in the Morgan County Citizen! Ok so the deal is this: Ben says that if it rains one inch on New Year’s Day between noon and midnight, any purchases you made at Whidby Jewelers between the Friday after Thanksgivin’ (Friday, Nov. 27) and Christmas Eve will be FREE! FREE! FREE I SAY! But, y’all need to keep your receipt. Plus you’d still be responsible for the sales tax or the mean ole IRS will slap Ben into a new tax bracket! Right! So anyway Ben says if you’re gonna buy jewelry as a gift this Christmas, why not buy it from Whidby Jewelers and get a chance to get your fab gifts fo free foo!
Wow! Let Ben pay for your Christmas y’all! I totally dig it and just know my handsome husband will too!
