Margie: Edna, it'll soon be time for those crazy shoppers again. They zip up and down this street like they're race car drivers. It's not safe when folks are full of turkey and head for all the sales.Do you think they really have money to spend?
Edna: I doubt it, but that never stops people from acting like fools. I just hope they don't hurt each other in the stampede once the doors open. Itty-Biddy sued Walmart for 5 million dollars last year because she got knocked over by a woman toting a flat-screen TV.
Margie: Edna, let's go shopping at Walmart on Friday.

Margie: Edna, look at the TV. Have you seen the uproar over these airport pat downs? My stars, look at that muscular, handsome security man. Why that's plumb indecent.
Sister, did I tell you that I need to take a flight next week?
Edna: Go ahead, you hussy, but try not to be insulted when they just wave you on through without laying a hand on you.
Margie: Oh honey, when they see the padding I plan to stuff in my dress then they'll have to lay hands on me. Whee!
Edna: Margie, I think it's a federal offense to try and fool a TSA officer. Have a nice trip, sister!

Margie: Edna and I are far from being wealthy but we do try to help our neighbors when we can. We were astonished when we read the following:
"45 million Americans were food insecure last year - according to an Agriculture Department report.
This means they had difficulty feeding one or more of their members because they didn't have enough money. That's 14.7 percent of all U.S. households - or about one of every seven.
The situation was especially bad for about one-third of the households which reported very low food security."
Margie: Edna and I wanted to take this opportunity to ask that everyone count their blessings and ask what you would do if you were struggling to feed your family. Please give to your local food bank. Use a coupon and donate a can of beans or dried beans or any other item(s) you can afford. You'll feel better for doing it and you may need help one day in the future. Who knows? Thank you all.

The American Cancer Society created this day back in 1977. They have promoted it annually since then. It has been said many times that quitting smoking is harder than getting off heroin and it would appear to be true.
Margie: Yes, I used to be a smoker. The best way to quit is to come get my sister, Edna, and let her stay at your house for several days. She'll nag you until you'll be happy to quit to get her to leave.
A lot of folks use those stop smoking aids and that's fine. For me, I made up my mind and put them down. The 3 days it takes to get the nicotine out of your body is difficult and painful. After those 3 days, though, I promise you will feel like a new person.
Sign up if you'd like a visit from Edna.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society posted this on Facebook but we'd like to copy it in case anyone missed it. This is such an important issue so please help if you can.
"Thank you to everyone who wrote to your Senators, advocating for people with MS! If you haven't had a chance to send an email, there is still time. Senate passage of bill S.1273, is the last significant procedural hurdle to establish a national data system that tracks anonymous existing data on the epidemiology, incidence, prevalence and other factors of neurological diseases, including multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s."
Go here and you will find a letter prepared for you to send your Senators. Simply fill in your information then click send. Thank you.

Clark died on this day in 1960. It's hard to believe he was only 59. My word, what a fine Margiedale he would have been!

** Gray Alert**
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Margie here. If you live between Jericho and Topeka, Kansas then please get off the roads. My sister, Edna, has stolen my car and is driving to Topeka to see the Governor! Edna is blind as a bat and can't half hear so you must stay out of her path.
You're probably wondering why Edna is heading to Topeka? Have you seen this story? My sister is a Happy Meals addict. Lawsy me, I've never seen a grown woman love those toys like Edna does. She says she's going to Topeka to tell our Governor that she will not tolerate fruits and vegetables in her Happy Meals. She even took a big banner that says, "Nobody tells me what I can buy to eat!"
Please call the police if you see Edna. She is a danger to good folks everywhere. Oh, if she tries to resist then just buy her a Happy Meal. That's the only thing that makes her smile. Thank you all.
