Hush Puppies, Hotel Hallways & Lying For a Living

The mood was pretty festive this weekend in Fort Bragg.Although it was cold and rainy in Ft Bragg, the Femme were ready to go.Jacquie asked if we could speak to her son’s first grade class and we agreed, not realizing that she meant over 100 kids.They were happy to see us though and inspired us we close to one hundred questions.Really.We had too much fun at our seafood dinner and lots of stuff happened that I promised not to mention in this blog.A promise between Femmes is a promise, so I will only give you highlights.“Look, Nina is CHEWING!”Batteries.Carmen had never experienced a hush puppy.“Can I have some oyster with that hot sauce?”
Mother’s Day not Easter? (If you figure this one out I will send you a free cover flat)Ziploc bags.(And this one gets you a free book)Our host from AAFES laughed so hard he thought we were better than THE VIEW. He also thought that Black Expressions meant he should say, “Hey, What’s up?” He wrote Oprah about us.Can someone please call TV ONE?Or the WB?…
