Love always, "Goo" Rodent Droppings Harvey scared me to death last week! He would not wake up! He wasn't breathing. Couldn't find a pulse. Ok, I'm in tears. After shaking him, talking to him, and kissing his little head for almost 10 minutes, I opened up his little mouth and blew in it! Yeah, mouth to Ferret resuscitation, His little eyes opened and he had this look on his face like "What's wrong. Mom. Why are you crying?" Well, I wanted to kill him for scaring me like that. I have been closely observing him and he appears to be ok! Disclaimer is in force! Guy (Club Houston): Maybe someday you will grow up to be a big blue M&M!

Ruby Stone (RSICSS): Dagger throwing? Vera (BRB): How come when you go on vacation, Bill Havard's (BRB) bar tab goes to zero? I heard that your husband packed clean underwear, his toothbrush, and condoms. Your vacation suitcase contains Poly- grip, Preparation H and support hose! Leona (hangs at Chances): How is your Hudson shaking? Do you need a leash in the valley? Steve C. (RSICSS): What was it that Empress I Jose, the widow Norton said could not be talked about in Ft. Worth under threat of her imperial wrath? I've heard it was something about a road, perhaps a freeway or a tollway. Oh yeah, maybe it was a parkway ... perhaps Central Parkway?

I like a little ferret doodoo with my coffee, doesn't everyone? I have a new guest Rickydon sucking face, again! columnist that will be spewing out his thoughts as the "Fashion Sheriff." Please let me know how you feel about this type of guest columnist! TTFN Cuervolyn The Fashion Sheriff From the Design Studios of Mr. Illwell, evil twin of Mr. Blackwell, twice removed! For far too long, well known people in the Montrose area have gotten away with substandard attire and appearance, by trying to convince others that they are in style. When the truth of the matter is that they have no clue as to what comprises style or good taste. I have relocated to Houston and feel it is my duty to expose these atrocities against fashion and good grooming. This column is meant to be comedic in nature and is not meant to hurt or maliciously malign any one person or group, and the Houston Voice is not responsible for any of my insanities! Therefore I feel it is my duty to offer up the best and worst dressed people in the community. Now getting down to business. Ruby Stone's illegitimate sister from New York showed off her talent (so to speak) by exposing the crowd to her nearly developed body at a fundraiser Friday night at Chances. If you missed this act, God bless you. Meanwhile JJ Larue was sporting a new hairdo inspired by Freddie Kruger. (I'm afraid of you girl.) Some of the girls in this show that night would do well to take tips from Renee Monroe and Jennifer Ellsworth. As they appeared as "Pearls amidst Swine." By the way Ruby, Anne Margaret called and she wants her hair back. This is my column for this week. I'll be watching and waiting to hear from you. Dress well, look well, and be well. Mr. Illwell
