    I understand the lady on the pig with a champagne glass celebrating the new year. I understand the background of 4-leafed clovers for luck. But I don’t understand the significance of the toadstools down in the lower right corner. Can you splain that?

    I’m looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us. And we already know about your gumption, going to bed early and getting up around 4 am to fix us something entertaining. And you’re Smart too, I noticed that the first time you and Pap came over here. Happy New Year to everyone. …Ken

    Happy new year. I hope you are having black eyed peas,greens, cornbread, and ham hocks today. BTW, I finished reading “Dorie……….” last week. It was an enjoyable, informative read. Didn’t realize there was so much moving around following the work. Don’t know if that was true of most mountain families or not. My family stayed in the same place as I grew up.

    Aw shucks, the richness we add to you all? Here I was thinking all along it was near about all the other way around. You all are loved like church family. It is so good to get New Year wishes from you today. I pray the Lord will drop handfuls of purpose for you and yours all through 2018.

    Best wishes to all for a peaceful and productive and safe 2018!
