Santa brought me a couple of lumps of coal but my lady friend
gave me some  Old Spice!  lol   A new Yellow Flannel Shirt and
     A deluxe no-stick GREEN frying pan!   Awesome!  lmao!

Pork Chops, mashed garlic potatoes, collard greens, hog jowls,
            black eyed peas, sauerkraut, pumpernickel bread,
                       green onions, olives and radishes.
