Wiggins was Harvey’s pet hamster. He blamed Hilltop National Bank for the ink on his paws. When Harvey choose to go with paperless banking from Hilltop, Wiggins lost his best source of premium shredded nest material. It was back to newspaper. Yuck. Harvey, on the other hand, is delighted. Hilltop’s paperless banking saves resources and saves him time. And that means more time to spend with Wiggins, so everybody wins in the long run. Which is just how they think customer service should work at Hilltop National Bank, member FDIC. – Pat Greiner
Wiggins was Harvey’s pet hamster. Bold he was: Full-faced-doubled-pawed bold. Harvey saw his resolve. “A road trip to the Arctic Ocean! Now!” Harvey explained to GCR. The Tire Guys knew right away he needed a new set of all-terrain tires for the harrowing haul road north. North of moose and muskeg, wolverine and wolf. They rolled, those two, to the shining sea: Harvey and Wiggins, the Polar Bear hamster. For all the roads we travel: GCR. – Paul Stitt
Good Evening Indy. Conceived prior to the midnight hour MDT, written and put to electronic paper partially after. Delivered via Gmail prior to midnight PDT. Remind me to submit it to those fine folks at Editor-In-Chief next time first. My grandmother is raising her hand to cuff me from Heaven on High for my horrific grammar and punctuation:)
Warmest Regards, Hugh A. Benham, Deep in Kananaskis Country on a snowy April evening…
Wiggins was Harvey’s Pet Hamster. “Oh Crap.” muttered Wiggins as he squeezed out the screen door. “How did I end up here? I had a plan.” Wiggins blinked. “Damn, same picture” Wiggins cursed. “But wait, I hear something?” “Over there.” “Those guys are chipper!” “That tunnel system would be a great place to hide.” “Made it. Now I can …” Harvey collapsed. Wiggins was gone. Grizzly 152 had scooped up Wiggins and swallowed him whole. Harvey started dialing. He had made the decision to manage his money and make it grow. Hugh at Market Mentor Capital could help. He could teach him. No Bear market was going to swipe his hard earned money without a fight.

Wiggins was Harvey’s pet hamster, but the sound of Wiggins on that wheel used to drive Harvey nuts!
SFX: sounds cross fade to ominous drone (under)
Harvey’s job at the radio station was to write effective scripts for advertisers. With no time or resources, Harvey felt just like Wiggins – round and round, not going anywhere.

Voice 2 — But I need car insurance?
Voice 1 — Where does that wheel take him?

Voice 1 — That’s the thing… with new laws, you must have insurance or you can’t go anywhere.
Voice 2 – License plate scanners a billion miles away, instantly knowing if you have car insurance.
Voice 1 — It’s not a billion miles. But you need insurance so can go where you need to go. Freedom.

Wiggins was Harvey’s pet hamster. Bertha…was his mint green washing machine. Slick, his retro brown leather jacket, Frank his red Gibson guitar and Betsy…his 1978 Chevy pick-up. Harvey almost always named the finds, deals and treasures he discovered in the Smart Shopper. They were now his… and he loved them. Who will you find this week when you pick up your copy of the Fay-West Smart Shopper?

Hi Indy, How are you doing? Have I told you you’re the most handsome dog I know? It’s true. And you have the finest hat collection of anyone I know. Flattery will help me win, right? Oh well, it was worth a shot. Anyway, here’s my 30-second radio script for the whiskey tasting company my wife and I started:
“Wiggins was Harvey’s pet hamster,” grandma began. Her white tea cup in hand and beige blanket across her lap. Five-year-old me shimmied closer in anticipation. Grandma told the best stories. She’d always sneak in a word I wasn’t allowed to say. Then we’d laugh until our sides split. Grandma has since passed but her legacy continues. I tell stories for a living now, though some call it pouring whiskey. Book a tasting with us. WhiskeySmiths.com. We’ll laugh. We’ll sip. Our sides will split.
Thanks Indy! May you dream of slow fluffy rabbits. – Zac Smith
Wiggins was Harvey’s pet hamster. Unfortunately for Wiggins, Harvey was not the most organized human. Sometimes he forgot to clean out the cage or couldn’t find the special treats. Once he even lost Wiggins in all his messy piles. That’s when Wiggins left Harvey a message: just an organized home dot com. When Harvey read the message, he realized he needed help. Maybe you do, too. Fortunately, Harvey found help at just an organized home dot com. Now Harvey remembers to clean the cage and he knows where the special treats are. Best of all, the messy piles are gone so Wiggins never gets lost anymore.

Wiggins was Harvey’s pet hamster. And he was missing, again. He was the Harry Houdini of the hamster world and took every opportunity to perfect his craft. When Harvey found him in the driveway, he had escaped by squeezing under the garage door through a break in the weather stripping. If Wiggins could get out, Harvey pondered what kind of beast could get in through that rat sized gap. Call Overhead Door and schedule a Spring Safety inspection of your garage door system before you find un-invited guests in your garage. – Gary Benham
Wiggins was Harvey’s pet hamster. Have you ever looked at a moment in your life knowing you would have, should have and could have? Your five year old digging a shoebox size hole in the backyard isn’t something most parents want to miss, especially if you were shuffling with your business partners in the corrals of commercial air travel.

Wiggins was Harvey’s pet hamster. Wiggins loved Harvey, but he craved adventure. So one day, Wiggins escaped. He ran to the dresser and grabbed Harvey’s US Cellular phone. It was big and heavy for his little hamster body, but, well, wouldn’t YOU do anything for a phone that works everywhere? They keep in touch, though. Last week Wiggins called home from a ski resort in the mountains, and just yesterday while hiking deep in the woods. Harvey is happy for his friend, and glad to know Wiggins has a reliable signal wherever he goes. They’re meeting for coffee next week. Sounds like quite an adventure! – Alan Yurk
Wiggins was Harvey’s pet hamster. Wiggins didn’t mind his treadmill so much but Harvey did. Wiggins’ treadmill was kind of fun but Harvey’s was plain old 9-5 work. Both Harvey and Wiggins needed a vacation and Wiggins knew it. But can a hamster call a travel agent? Can hamster surf the net? No, but a hamster can text and that is what he did. Now both Harvey and Wiggins are on the beach in Bora Bora. Your vacation is just a text away. You can wait for your hamster to do it, or do it yourself. Text “I need a vacation “ and we will do the rest. – Kelly Herren
V1: Wiggins was Harvey’s pet hamster… and he LOVED long car rides. Perched on the dash, Wiggins would peer inquisitively into the distance, relishing each adventure. His favourite part was fueling up at Timber Falls. If you listened carefully, you could even hear Wiggins’ itty bitty squeal of joy. (SFX: SQUEE!) They’d get a car wash, stop for a meal in the mini food court, and pick up treats from the convenience store. Wiggins was right — the best part of ANY car ride… is arriving at Timber Falls. (SFX: SQUEE!) On Highway 52, and at Timber Falls dot C-A. – Erin Unger
Wiggins was Harvey’s pet hamster.” Wiggins could dance but wouldn’t unless he was listening to the right radio station. Country didn’t cut it. Rock did not make his little plastic ball roll.
