Cards, Letters, Emails, and Gifts

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! I have the best friends in the entire world. Everyone is always showering us with cards, emails, letters, treats, and gifts. Last week, our family spent the day and evening at Prestonsburg Elementary. We love being with Ms. Damron and all the students and teachers. They gave us this beautiful quilt. We were speechless. I couldn't wait to bring it home and sleep on it. Mom said it was too special to sleep on, so are having a frame made to hang it in our room. That's even better. We will treasure it forever. A great big thanks to Ms. Damron and everyone at PES for making us feel at home. We are going to post more pictures in the next few days. It just seems like we have had so many things to blog about that it's been tough to keep up.

Here are just a few fun emails Mom and I have received lately:

Leigh Anne,

My family has a long haired dachshund, Piper. She was a pound puppy from the Hardin County pound. My children love Woody and Chloe and have several of your books. We were thrilled yesterday to read Chapter 3 in our local newspaper, The Morehead News. My daughter said, "Mom, Dad is in a Woody book", after I read it, I understood. My husband is the chief pilot for the Ky State Police and has achieved the rank of Captain. He flies the governor and other important officials and I have often asked if he says,"This is Captain Carlisle and I will be your pilot today,"....he laughs and says he DOES NOT. We all got a good laugh over Captain Carlisle flying Woody and Chloe. Just wondering why you chose "my husband" to pilot your plane????

Thanks for the Woody books!

Hi Woody, my name is Nicholas Porter. You came to my school this week. I was so happy and I love you J. I enjoy reading about your place in Tinytown, Kentucky. I also would like for you to tell Chloe that I like her too. I would love for you to come and visit me someday. Do you like airplanes? I do maybe you could come and ride in my dad’s airplane.Thank you and God bless.


We also received two very special cards this past week from our friends at Holiday Elementary in Hopkinsville, KY. The fifth graders sent us a sympathy card telling us how sorry they were about our Papaw dying. A great big thanks to Ms. Lentz, Ms. Klingensmith, and all the students for the very thoughtful card. It meant so much to our entire family!

Chloe and I are two lucky and fortunate hot dogs to have so many friends!

We love each of you!

CSI: Chapter 5

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! Our faithful readers in Ms. Rish's 4th grade class at Meadowthorpe sent me their answer to the following question regarding Chapter 5:

When the hot air balloon landed, Andy told Woody that the family had landed in four different states. How is this possible? Email Woody at and explain what might have happened.

1. They could have landed in the middle of 4 different states.

2. Different people could be standing in 4 different states.

3. One person could be standing on the border of 4 different states.

4. They were at the edge of all 4 different states.

We love hearing from our faithful readers! Keep those emails coming and Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
