Please, je demande you to take a moment to say a prayer for my granddaughter, Lacy Lynn Segura, now at Lafayette General Hospital. She is 32 years old, has cerebral palsy and suffering with phuenemonea and needs surgery on both hips. Bien merci!
Jessi Robin has given the OK on us merging as the Henderson/Butte La Rose Easter Egg Hunt. I’ve spoken with several of the Butte La Rose parents and they’ve volunteered to help also. Easter will be here before you know it.
The date is set for Sunday, April 17 at 2 p.m., Henry Guidry Park. There will be five age groups and would be good to have as many kids as possible for the hunt. The Girl Scouts will cook hot dogs for purchase. Jessie said we need money donations to buy candy and plastic eggs and it can be dropped off with Gail at the Henderson City Hall.
Late news: Guardian Angel and volunteer Misty Breaux from Butte La Rose just called to say she spoke with Ericka Guidry with “Cajun Inflatables” to rent a fun jump for the day of the egg hunt. Instead they will donate the “Castle Fun Jump” and the Fun Jump with the slide. Ericka G. and Henry Gravouia, we are so grateful. That is wonderful for the children. More next week!
Toni Jones is the owner of Nanny’s Home Cookin Restaurant at the intersection of Grand Point and the Henderson Road.
Her business opened last October and last week was my first time going. I enjoyed a lunch of shrimp, potato and egg stew with a corn on the cob and a slice of buttered French bread. C’est tes délicieux.
Everyday has a different luncheon, also a variety menu and a “Little People” menu. There are no two people alike or with the same taste and as popular as our major restaurants are, some people look for a smaller cozy little place to eat. I like that.
Toni moved here from New Orleans where she had a restaurant and catering company and brought here with her a lot of its history and her memories. And time permitting, she’ll share them with you. She has tons of stories to tell about. She says; “God brought me here and let me ride out on Katrina.”
I don’t know how to act with all of this sunshine.
La vielle femme who lives at my house was hungry for a hamburger last week when we were shopping at the new Pennys in Lafayette. We crossed the parking lot over to the Chick-Fil-A place. When walking in you can view the menu behind the cashiers and select from the pictures of choice of every dish imaginable, except the only meat available on the menu is chicken. Vielle stood there and studied the board for several minutes and finally looked at the cashier and asked, “Hum, so you don’t serve hamburgers, non?”
The cashier, with a smile on her face shook her head in a nice way and said, “No!” I was so ashamed and honte. So to break that spell of standing there so embarrassed we ordered fries to go.
I spoke with Jed Angelle and he said work in clearing the property at the old Soloco Dock in preparation for the water system is progressing. More later!
Bien merci, amètie, à plus tard.
