On A Brighter Note...

Hot Pink to be exact...
This is My Honey's latest incredibly brilliant idea, a hot pink Snubbing Unit!!


After seeing the huge success that the PRCA has had with it's "Tough Enough To Wear Pink" campaign for Breast Cancer research...My Honey decided that if cowboys could do it...so could the roughnecks in the oilfield. This unit is teaming up with with a non-profit organization and a good percentage of the profits will go toward breast cancer research. The details aren't all worked out yet, but the unit is nearly ready to cross the border. Once it has been delivered and the contracts signed, it will start working and contributing toward a great cause.

How cool is that??



***Thank you all for your wonderful, kind words and sharing your stories too. I think the more people talk about such things, the more accepted it becomes to do the right thing for our loved ones-animals and people. Life at all costs isn't always the best choice these days. Quality of time has to count for something!!

That is SO cool. As soon as Wrangler came out with the pink dress shirts, my hubby got one. (my mom died of breast cancer)Then, when we were in South Carolina for easter, my hubby went western store shopping while I was scrapbooking with my aunt and he found......TWO pink shirts, one for each of our little boys. So for easter, each of my three boys were tough enough to wear pink :)) Boy did they get some comments from the old ladies at the church. (you all look so CUUUUUUTE) Tell your honey he's awesomely cool.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer on October 6th. I am half way through chemo and it is one of the hardest things I've ever done. When I see things like this, it makes me smile. I'd like to see your three boys in their pink shirts!

Thanks for the post, and thank your husband.

Debby said...

Sorry, the pink shirts comment was for ezra. I'm up too late...

ezra_pandora said...

Debby: I can't email you or comment on your page for some reason :( Can you email me (or go to my blog) and tell me how?? I keep getting error messages on anyone's message board that has a comment page like yours for some reason. I must be dumb.

Have a great day!
