Record Breaking Day


Yesterday's blood drive at Mississippi Blood Services in Jackson was another record breaker--350 people came out to donate blood! This is the most people MBS has ever had donate in one day and I was so honored to be a part of it all. I was moved by the number of people who gave their time to come sit in line and wait to donate. This success could not have been possible without the contribution of Clarion Ledger editorial cartoonist Marshall Ramsey. His t-shirt design was a hit and many came out just to get his t-shirt. Thank you, Marshall, for being such a sincere contributor to our community and for being a friend I can always count on! Here is a picture of Marshall and I just before our LIVE television interview on WLBT (Marshall gave blood for the first time in 6 years since being diagnosed with melanoma).



When I got back to the television station to prepare my forecasts, a viewer had sent me a letter. Here is what she wrote:

"Please watch the maternity clothes you wear. Your bosoms are very large and need to be covered up."

I've seen girdles for covering up tummies, hips, thighs, buttocks, etc. But does anyone know where I could find a "bosom girdle" so I can cover mine up? Geez......

Bossoms? Seriously?!

Quit staring at Barbie's chest & watch the weather report people.

Bossoms. *snort* That's a good one!

Bosom girdle, that's good. Please let us know if you find one.
I see a lady that loves her God and Jesus Christ.
A full moon couldn't be brighter.

I think the viewer was talking about me. I could stand to lose a few pounds.

Thanks again for allowing me to be part of such a fun and special day.

Congrats to you for always keeping a smile on your face and showing others the grace they don't seem to want to extend to you.

If you listen to every thing that people say you will never get anything done. Keep on just the way you are.

I went to Kroger's in Vicksburg today hoping to see you. I'm sorry you weren't there.

Oh my! Bless your heart. You need to publish your memoirs one day and include all these ridiculous comments. What ever happened to "if you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all!"

Sad that people can't see how beautiful women become in such a different way when they are pregnant. More sad I think that More people see what's on the outside than what is on the inside. Maybe we should dress him up in one of those pregnancy suits and let him try to put on comfortable clothes/shoes, work an 8-10 hr day and come home and still be wife /mommy all while juggling raging hormones!!! :)
