Paula, you are my very favorite, and I watch your show every day. My husband bought me your cook ware, and my dream is to come to Georgia and see you at the Lady & Sons. We retired a year back, and have bought us a little motor home and we are heading out to do a little traveling this year. About the 1st of March we will head towards Starkville, Mississippi where my brother lives, and hopefully to Lady & Sons as well. You are awesome. Peggy Hagan
