A Little Over 12¢ a Tittie-Breast Cancer Awareness

Yes, there are some stories that cannot be made-up. While shopping at our local grocery store, I was asked if I was Jane Herlong.  “Yes,” I answered. “I LOVE your book,” said the stranger.  I was delighted since my latest book, “Bury Me with My Pearls” had become an Amazon Best-seller and I was riding high.  I had written two other books;  “Bare Feet to High Heels” and “What Ta-Tas Teach Us.” “You are  talking about The PEARLS Book, right?”  “Oh, No,” replied the stranger.  “It is the one about the titties. I bought it at a yard sale for a quarter. I did the math and figured I spent a little over 12¢ a tittie.”  I could not have asked for a better comment than that!  She made me laugh and gave me a new story.

Tie a Pink Ribbon for Breast Cancer Awareness Around my Heart

The room was decorated in high fashion with beauty and elegance. The stunning table decorations paled in comparison to the hearts of sisterhood joined together in High Point, NC for their Annual Pink Ribbon Luncheon. These are my people and as a humorist speaker I would speak to every single Pink Ribbon group across the world if I could. At the end of the luncheon themed after my funny book for women, “Bury me with My Pearls” I decided to tie a pink ribbon for breast cancer around my heart The room was decorated in high fashion with beauty and elegance. The stunning table decorations paled in comparison to the hearts of sisterhood joined together in High Point, NC for their Annual Pink Ribbon Luncheon. These are my people and as a humorist speaker I would speak to every single Pink Ribbon group across the world if I could. At the end of the luncheon themed after my funny book for women, “Bury me with My Pearls” I decided to tie a pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness around my heart. It was delightful to reconnect with my buddy, Beachy Allen. Someone with a celebrated name like  ” Beachy” would  guarantee the luncheon would be wonderful. The Pink Ribbon Committee told me they wanted a fun speaker with an inspirational presentation.  So my job was to make them laugh, feel appreciated and be encouraged. Many had had a brush with breast cancer;  my message was simple and focused on the pearls that we wear. My book, “Bury Me with My Pearls” is about these wonderful qualities we should all embrace.  Jane’s Products
