Happy Birthday, Minnie Pearl!

Sarah (Minnie Pearl) Ophelia Collie Cannon, American comedienne (Grand Old Opry and Hee Haw) and singer ("Giddyup Go-Answer"), was born on October 25, 1912. Minnie Pearl usually appeared wearing a straw hat with a dangling $1.98 price tag on it.

Minnie Pearl’s trademark greeting was simple: “Howdy!”



The Meme Express link is “Howdy!”

Here are a few optional questions, to jump-start your inspirational engine:

How do you greet your friends?

Did you ever just feel like saying, “Howdy”?

Do you talk to strangers?

Is there anyone you ought to reach out to today?

Perhaps this concept will inspire you to create a drawing, a poem, a short story, or a journal entry. Then return here to leave a comment with your link. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)
