I just got an e-mail with the subject line: “BeÂ Thankful for the Drag Queens.” The subtitle was “The House of LeMayâ€™s Top 10 List of Things to Be Thankful for on Thanksgiving.”
I had never heard of the House of LeMay, but after reading the entertaining list, I decided to visit their Web site. I especially enjoyed the home page graphic with the sign for The Hot Damn Trailer Park and the photo of cousin Lucy Belle LeMay wearing her “Miss Beaver Pond” banner. And I really want a get a copy of their documentary, “Slingbacks and Syrup,” about how this family of “girls” have impacted the life of one newcomer to Beaver Pond, Vermont.
Read their list of things to be thankful for below, then go here to check out their Web site and read about their story.

9. Twinkies â€“ Both the Hostess and the youthful types.
8. Vodka â€“ enough said.
7. Payless Shoe Stores â€“ Even when itâ€™s not BOGO (buy one, get one) Week, you can usually find an economical size 11Â½ in a comfy heel for that long parade or night of standing on the street corner.
6. Lane Bryant â€“ Because Ann Taylorâ€™s a skinny little bitch.
5. Press-On Nails â€“ Whether youâ€™re a chronic biter you just canâ€™t grow a nail to save your soul, with Press On Nails you can always scratch someoneâ€™s eyes out and then throw away the evidence.

3. Vodka â€“ worth saying again.
