Belle and I became engaged during a New Years celebration, in the minutes after midnight, January 1, 2003. The next day, we announced our engagement with a meal of blackeyed peas, cabbage, and corn bread. We still cook on New Year's Day, and our good friend, the honorable mayor of Pollock attends the feast. Sometimes more folks, sometimes less, and today there will be simply we three. We saw the kids yesterday, and while they were all invited, they deferred, having other plans.

|Good, clean white cabbage. This will cook down nicely.|
Happy New Year!
