  • Opening Narration: I cannot believe that life can be more generous than it was to me when I was a young writer, living in New York City and in love wih a girl named Janet. Janet was from Iowa, now an editor at a fashion magazine. She was convinced that when I was working, I'd forget to eat.

  • Closing Narration: And so it was that a folkesy, fertile clan from the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia was united with the distinguished family from Iowa. Janet's father would be happy to know that in spite of some lean times, Janet and John-Boy never had to live on chitlings and moonshine whisky. It was a fine wedding, and the memory of that day is still warm and wonderful, and will stay with us always.
