The Mouse Pack RULES
Hooray for our side, The Mouse Pack is a success. It has become “The Mouse That Roars.” In case you just tuned in and have no idea what I’m talking about, you can join in by scrolling down to the post titled, “LLOYD THAXTON MOUSE PACK.” Go down and read it, but come straight back up.
A fan named Gary wrote me that he has a Lloyd Thaxton Dawk (my little 60s protest guy) sitting on his bookshelf. He ends his posted comment with, “Dawk Rules!” Remember how in the 60s we all went around shouting things like “Surf Rules!” “Beatles Rule!” “Mouse Pack Rules!? Well, we didn’t shout “Mouse Pack Rules” because the Mouse Pack wasn’t born yet.
I formed the Mouse Pack because of the many fan emails (I call them “Fanny Mails”) I’ve received during the past year. It started when my book “Stuff Happens” came out and my email address was on the back cover. This experience was so wonderful I wanted to find a way we could keep up the communication. Writing individual emails to each person is not only too time consuming, but can’t possibly answer everyone’s questions. So, I started this blog as a way to keep us all together.
But like any Pack, we need some rules (Everybody shout: “Pack Rules!”)
RULE NUMBER ONE: This is NOT going to be a CHAT room. Too many people start chatting with each other and leave everyone else out. WRONG! I want you to ask questions, but I will discuss the question in my regular posts. That way I can answer your questions and pose some new ones I’ve received from past “Fanny Mails.”
RULE NUMBER TWO: You don’t have to always talk about The Lloyd Thaxton Show. We should also be talking about what is happening to us today. I’m sure many of you have some strong opinions on today’s stuff. I know I do and I want to hear your stuff and how you’re dealing with it.
RULE NUMBER THREE: You don’t have to leave a comment, but it would be nice. True Mousers want to know what’s going on in each other’s lives. I’ve made it easier for you to leave a comment. You don’t have to register. Just weigh in and let it all hang out.
RULE NUMBER FOUR: If you want to be on my Fanny Mail list, leave your email address at least once. That way I can keep you up to date on any changes that will be coming along later.
That’s it! Four rules. But, hey, this is your Pack. Maybe you have a couple of rules you would like to suggest. Cool. Do it. As you remember. The Lloyd Thaxton Show was about you. And, so is the Mouse Pack. Shout it out: “MOUSE PACK RULES!”
How about this for our theme song: The Shangri-las’ “The Leader of the Pack?”
My next post will answer a lot of questions. Keep them coming and STAY TUNED.
First question: If I’m from Wisconsin, should I call my chapter, “The Green Bay Mouse Packers? Just asking.
