Spreading The Love Of February

Time to Spread the Love for February. During the month all you Acorns went along with me as I talked about everything from eating owls to why Brasstown is famous. Along the way you helped pull Pap across the hospital line. I’m sending a great big Thank you to everyone who commented during the month of February-your words of wisdom really do make the Blind Pig a better place to visit!

    Tipper, I’m glad to hear that Pap is better–will keep him and you all in my prayers.
    Congratulations, Melissa–you’ll enjoy that CD!
    Guess what? I’m watching a history thing on PBS, and it’s in France in, I think, the 1600s (not really paying that much attention, making something, you know), and the French guys says
    “Even a blind hog finds a (I think he said truffle) once in a while!”
    Thought of you, of course!

    Hey and congratulations to Melissa!
    My, my what a list of folks that commented….one of these days you won’t have room to post them all….Great….and remember there are folks out there reading that don’t post…but really should put their two cents in…
    Tell Pap I’m glad he is feeling better. Wonder if Pap and Paul would go for opening a song request post maybe once a month?
    Thanks for your work Tipper…

    Tipper, as I said before, I have been reading your blog for such a long time. You thanked your commenters here. But it is WE who thank YOU! You have such an honest and familiar way about you that you are like the neighbor next door that holds the screen door open and says, “come on in and we can talk over some coffee!” Or the one that used to sit on the porch and as we walked by, said, “come sit on the porch a spell and we can gossip!” Everyone who reads your little stories goes away wearing a smile for the rest of the day. Thank YOU.. for being you, in a time when folks need a good neighbor lady.
