I don't believe them but it is fun to repeat them and pretend I do. Sooo we ate blackeyed peas for lunch. Now we're sitting back waiting for good luck to befall us. I put stew in the crock pot at four thirty this morning. We awoke to the good smell this morning. John added his peas to the stew to make them taste better. They say what ever you do on New Years day you will do all year long. Nothing new here for me. Cook and do laundry and some straightening up. While on the subject of the New Year it is against the law to shoot fireworks in the city limits here. You wouldn't have known it by our yards brightly lit and the noise making the poor animals nervous. Our cats took cover in a shed by the garage. There was no way the police could enforce this law. Not sure why so many more this year unless they were celebrating San Antonio's birthday 300 besides the New Year. It was pretty, but too cold to go out to watch.
