It just does me proud to know someone in the Forest Service has become so famous. And, a possum made it all happen!

While visitng my cousin and her husband in Murphy, NC during the holidays, Johnny B., Eddie Pi and myself heard of the "Possum Drop" and had to check it out. I believe I can speak for my friends and say that I can't remember when I've had a better time or laughed so much on New Year's Eve. We will make the "Possum Drop" an annual event. Thanks for a great experience.

Was sure glad to hear that the '05 possum was LIVE. As anyone who has ever kicked a dead cow on a late night coon hunt and seen three possums roll out of it knows, possums are just naturally curious. I am sure the ride in a limo and then the trip up and down for the drop made this possum's day!

Please be kind to your little opossum friends. I have a pet opossum named Penny who is a sweet lovable little girl. Many people don't realize that opossums can be domesticated and make wonderful pets. So if you "drop" a opossum ...please don't hurt the little animal...opossums have feelings too.

Nice to see some good words about "the other white meat" -- I happened by Clay's Corner a week or so ago in person while on vacation, and loved the area..lush and beautiful. Now I am 2000 or more miles away but with fond memories.

Thank you for feeding my husband when he was taking wood carving classes across the street from your station. Not only is the area beautiful and friendly, it is great that little things can create such humor. PS...my mom lives around the corner but we haven't been to visit over one of your festivities (not yet). Thanks, Gina and Alan Devenney

Hey there Clay... It's been more than a year since you and Pete you were up in northeast Washington doing PR work for the fire fighters. They had a fly-in going on and then you fellers came over to the ranch for a potluck meal and a little music. Last winter I met a young fiddler named Bobby Phillips last, said he was from NC. I said, "You ever hear of Clay's Corner?" He said sure enough, he been there and jammed on Friday nights... Small, small world... One of these times I'm gonna show up for a Friday night jam--you better have some new possum jokes! Take care and drop a line one of these times. ~connie

I had never seen anything like a bluegrass band in my life until I stopped by Clay's Corner one Friday night. The music was great, and I liked the sign. "Ain't no place like this place anywhere this place, so this must be the place." I look forward to seeing the band play some more music.

Being a opossom rehabilitator I just had to stop by your place when we were in North Carolina in April '02-it was the neatest place-told all my friends. We even named 2 of my babies(possums) Clay & Judy. Will be back again someday.

I knew it would just be a matter of time - before you and your opossums went big time!!! Please don't ever forget the "little people" that laughed at your jokes even when they weren't funny just to encourage you while you were struggling along. Love and Best Wishes!!!

Clay, boy! You didn't tell me you had a web page, but I'm sending all my friends here now. (Both of them.) Your grandbaby is a real cutie, and I loved all the pictures and jokes. I wish you all would come to Las Vegas for the wedding, but I guess that means I'll just have to come out there and see you all. Take good care! Casey

Good Morning, Some how I just happened across your website. I believe a friend sent me the possum activities. Many years ago, I traveled for the United States Jaycees and was in your find community attempting to establish a Jaycee Chapter. I fell in love with your area of the country and it is good to see you still have that home spun atmosphere and I hope y'all never lose that down home hospitality. Didn't you use to have a welcome sign that read Population 101 wonderful folk and a stinker or two? I may have you confused with another community, but it reminded me or you. I hope maybe one day, to come back. There have been so many places I traveled, but didn't get to spend any time looking around and yours is one of those places. Take care and God Bless, Patrick Cardwell, Pensacola, FL

We heard you at the Grove Park Inn on Tuesday and laughed until we cried. The best part is that I think you embarassed my dad (Jim Hollifleld) more than once. Thanks for the fun!
