Once again, welcome to this year’s edition of The Little Ho! Ho! Book. As was the case with the first volume, this edition’s royalties are also earmarked to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. All those wonderful people who unselfishly dedicated their time and talents to Volume 2 deserve every ounce of credit for its success. My thanks and ongoing appreciation goes out to each and every one of them.
The devastating condition of Alzheimer’s is still an unfortunate and prevalent factor in our aging population. Because of this sad reality, T.L.H.H.B. is more about public awareness than it is about total dollars generated. If this small publication can touch only one or two individuals who might not have realized the full impact that Alzheimer’s holds for our society then, without question, all of the work has been worth it.
Volume 2 has a slightly different theme than its predecessor. Whereas Volume 1 dealt with Memories, Past and Present, of the Holidays, this edition embraces all of those humorous (and sometimes frustrating) situations that revolve around Pets and Animals. Volume 2 is a compilation of sorts. On one hand it is a grouping of some of the favorite “Pet/Animal” columns that were published in the weekly humor column And...More, Later. But it is the creative and original artwork that was dedicated to this publication that makes it so unique.
Once again, on behalf of everyone who contributed their energies to this endeavor...our “Thanks”, our well wishes, and our hopes for a Happy 2002 Holiday Season.
