You know I heard that Matin’s sells Beer and Wine EVEN on Sundays
Ooooo Ahhhh Tehehehe

Well, Mrs. Thalhimer told Mrs. Miller and Rhoades, who told my grandmother, and of course passed it down to me that those Ukrop’s boy’s weren’t allowed to be opened on Sundays or sell beer or wine, cus that’s the way they’re mama wanted it. And everybody knows you best mind yo’ mama!
And if mama ain’t happy t’ain’t nobody happy!

Got that right!

  1. This is the absolute BEST and most CREATIVE cheer you have ever created Christine! Delivery was perfect, timing was perfect, the vibe was totally there this morning. Well done and we will look for more from you super talented cheerleaders!!!

      Thanks Peter! We always have a blast. With all the laughing we do at practice, we’re always a bit amazed at the outcome. But as Nancy Thomas said this morning, we should all be lucky enough to have fun with the people we work with.

  2. Hey Sweet Cakes!

    I totally agree – Friday’s Retail Merchant’s First Friday’s cheer was fabulous! Several folks commented on it at my table.

    I would suggest you meeting with the Martin’s PR people to see about it being an ad spot!

    Loved it ~ and you too! Susie Galvez

  3. Christine, this is the best cheer ever! Everyone loved it. Thanks so much for all your creative prose.
