I’ve never outright asked for donations from readers, and I’m not about to start doing it now, but if you’re stuck for an idea for a stocking stuffer or something for a friend or yourself — whether or not you observe the holiday traditions — a Bark Bark Woof Woof coffee mug, t-shirt, polo shirt, license plate frame, or some other tchotchke would be a great idea.
I’m pretty sure I am the only person on the planet with a set of Bark Bark Woof Woof coffee mugs — in both sizes — at home and at work, and I have the entire collection of shirts, too, including the one with the cartoon image of Mustang Bobby and Sam in all their studly glory. Trust me, I don’t have a problem with flooding the market with them. I know I’m not the only one with a license plate frame (thanks, Bob), and seeing as how the readership here has gone up over the last year, I wouldn’t mind if you helped spread the word via thought, word, and deed.
Okay, this is beginning to devolve into sounding like one of those annoying pledge breaks from public radio, so I’ll stop while you go shopping.
