There are, apparently, three guiding forces that watch over us here at Cat Country everyday.

Some people believe in religious devices, some people may wear a lucky charm or a lucky piece of jewelry, some people believe they have a guardian angel -- for many, what guides them or at least looks over them is a reflection of what they believe.

For us here at Cat Country, these are the three things that watch over us everyday:

Yep... an empty can of beer, a curley fry, and St. Jude.

I believe the statue of St. Jude was given to us at either a radiothon or at one of our Quest for One Million Pennies stops years ago. As for the curley fry statue, I really have no idea where that came from (nor why we have elevated it the way we have) and same goes for the empty can of tart wheat beer (which I actually thought was not opened until I just took a picture of it).

Oh - and that's at least 10 years of dust up there and that red model Prowler is from when Miss Cat Country was in the Miss America Parade oh so many years ago. And in the background, yes we really did write down the names of everyone who donated to our St. Jude Radiothon this year. And there's a toppled-over Chick-fil-a cow hiding behind St. Jude.

But getting back to what guides our moral compass everyday... beer, french fries, and St. Jude.

And in many respects, I suppose that's pretty accurate. When Joe Kelly tells an inappropriate joke, blame the beer. When we make you smile (I hope it's quite a bit), it's the french fry. And for nearly two decades, we have given hope to the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital thanks to the over $2 million we have raised - all because of you - during our radiothons.
