Why thank you ever so much for the kind comments about my New Year’s celebration. Every year I do strive for the very best.
I’m sure that you could do it too, Lara; perhaps when all your little charges are grown and matured like mine, you can hold a town meeting or small gathering with great success.
Now. About this “piggy” issue. You should use it to help you out. Slowly ease Peder away from the toy by removing it when he is sleeping and allowing him to go for longer periods of time without it. Then, reward good deeds or progress by allowing him to hold the pig until he happily feels he should do more of the lauded action in order to feel more of this same happiness.
Elementary babe psychology, my dear.
I am glad to hear that you enjoyed my column on the barn clean-up and that by now (your last missive was in January) you have had the time to use it towards cleaning your own barn. I must admit that I created the article with you and Dolores in mind, as your barns have such a role in the wellness of Pleasantville, particularly yours as you have food sold that comes from inside it. Surely it will help your food to be of even higher quality if the barn is properly cleaned.
Has Kaya been much trouble recently? It has been quite a while since I heard about our town’s native and its doings.
Everyone here is simply thriving. Do reply soon!
Yours, Lily Merriman
