I wanted to wish everyone in a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Years.  This is the time of the year when family comes together.  I have a very loving family and that is what the holidays mean to me FAMILY and love.  I don;'t care about the presents, but I sure do enjoy watching the kids opening there's, and soon to be grandchildren. Mom has already quilted a story book quilt for our first grandchild, and it's not gonna be here until July 2013...  I have room to talk, I'm working on the baby bed. 
So, anyhow, again I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
with tons of love JIM

Mike Harvey: I, like you have been retired for a while. The prosthesis is very comfortable but is still being adjusted so there is no blisters. Anyhow, I wanted to tell you about your fruit cake...OMG! Best ever! Sorry, one never made the curing stage. What a Christmas, I am so blessed with all the people (Chefs) here in AR. Mike Harvey I wish I had your email address, if I talked with you on the phone it would be a 3 hour call. Take care all of you and again Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas-Congratulations on the new grand baby. A new baby bad from Papa-how sweet. I see a little rocking chair in the future made by Papa for the baby, too. I had a rocking chair when I was little and it was very special to me.

Lela: Yup: Grandpa is thinking about a cradle first so mom and dad can get around easier in their bedroom. I have all the oak cut for the baby bed, just a matter of finishing it,,,(not sure yet), and putting it together. This is a bed I hope they'll have forever, cause grandpa built it.

Hello again, Jim. If you would copy that great compliment and post it on my fruitcake blog, I would appreciate it. ... I'm getting comment from both love it or dislike it but nobody has made it. My email?

About Me
I am a easy going guy who is always busy. Yes ladys and gents I don't have time for TV. During the winter months I am either hunting or most likely helping down at the church. During spring I am working on repairs outside and getting my hotbox ready for the garden. Summer and fall I am busy canning and freezing what comes out of my garden. I also cook all the meals for the day or event.
My favorite things to cook
I have to thank my mother for this. She broke her ankle when I was 10 years old, and there is where I learned to cook. I am nothing compared to my mother,(she is a true Chef), can make a delicous dish from scraps in the refigerator. Anyhow, I make a lot of bread type, deserts, nationalities.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I would have to say Thanksgiving. Every year I do the Turkey and dressing, and homemade dinner rolls. We have a big family I want to say (33 people+)and everyone likes my marinaded turkey and special dressing. I never have any leftovers of anything.
My cooking triumphs
Everything I have ever done has been great. I always end up with a empty dish.
My cooking tragedies
None: My daughter burnt popcorn;;; how do you burn popcorn? She said I did it, thats my girl.
