    Hi Lakeport. Thank you so much. I could hang a calendar in every room and still have some left over. Marilyn/BeasPeas

Ha ha! I can relate to you, for sure BeasPeas. Your word choices are so very clever. I am not surprised to learn that you won the contest!

I especially got a chuckle from this stanza:

(Are you SURE you can't use calendars?
Some photos are mighty fine.
Could line the litter box with them....
bet the cat would enjoy looking at pictures
while he is going....
potty material)

Well done -- and fun! Take care. Alana

We don't have quite the same intensity of pre-Christmas marketing here in Australia, but I know where you are coming from with this. I know they all have to compete for the ever-dwindling charity dollars but I sometimes wonder how much actually gets through to those in need. On the whole, I prefer direct donations to small non-government organisations. A delightful sense of humour shines through in this, making it a worth contest winner!

    Thank you, tfawcus. I appreciate your taking the time to read it. I have enough 2015 calendars to hang one in every room of the house AND address labels galore--but can I/do I throw them out? NO. Marilyn/BeasPeas.

This really funny. I realized just today that I now have a large basket full of address labels. for some stupid reason, I can 't throw them away, even though with email, I seldom need them. LOL

    Hi Seaglass. Thank you for your fun review. You KNOW what I'm talkin' about, don't you. Ha! Maybe we can wrap and re-gift that ole chia pet with them. Happy Thanksgiving.

I've sent thousands of dollars to theSave the Arctic Ant cause, and not once have I heard anything about their progress...

It just ain't fair, ya know?

This was funny, and the reason it's so funny is because it's also very true.

Those address labels are great for putting pictures in your scrap books, just in case you'd be interested, or you even keep a scrapbook.

Great job. I hope you do well in the contest! :)

    Hi Dean. Ha! Thanks for the tip on the new use for all those labels--I'll pass that one along. I appreciate your supportive and fun review.

Love it. I HATE junk mail! Unlike yours, mine goes straight into the wheely bin without a thought for the litter tray or gift wrapping options. "Save the Arctic Gnat" LOL. Don't bother. The gnat will be lucky to see 10 cents in the dollar. My sponsored kid in Africa is still starving.

Should 'chia' read 'china'?

cheers - DJ

    Hi DJ. Thank you for the fun review. That darn Arctic Gnat is still out there somewhere. No--not china--it's chia pet. Look it up on-line. They were all the rage back in the 70's, I think. A ceramic figurine and when you water it, it grows chia plant. Happy Thanksgiving.

How about the ones who call and say you have won a trillion dollar all they need is your credit card number. Good contest piece. Hope you win.

    Thank you, Ben, for your supportive review. I will put a "check in the mail" as usual--but probably not to "Save the Arctic Gnat." Happy Thanksgiving.

Jeepers this one is all over the place much like junk mail. How creative, you have penned this with a lot of flare. Though the ... drove me a little mad, just like junk mail too. Great imagery and descriptive emotion :)
Thanks for sharing and good luck.

    Hi Moreen. I hear you about the ... BUT that's because contest wanted (I guess) thoughts as if we were speaking/thinking to ourselves. So the annoying...is to indicate a pause in thought. I do appreciate your fun review. Happy Thanksgiving.

Hi,

This is a hoot! I thought we got junk mail one time, but it was really a $200.00 check! My mother-in-law entered us in a drawing---forgot to tell us, so I thought it was and advertisement.

I can appreciate where this is coming from! Great write.

Good luck in the contest.

Cheers & Blessings

    Hi Jax. Yay! Good for you winning $200. What a nice mother-in-law you've got. I hope my son-in-law thinks that I'm one of those! I appreciate your fun and supportive review. Yup! I do write checks to my favorite charities--maybe not to "Save the Arctic Gnat" though. Happy Thanksgiving.
