Gabbi Hardy, my great-granddaughter and her very talented dancing troupe from around this area had an award ceremony and a great show at the Heyman Center in Lafayette Sunday.
I’ve only seen these shows on TV, but we’ve got them here, too. There’s much work, many hours of behind the scenes coaching, and people involved to coordinate the many different acts of dancing. It takes accuracy to draw the artful talent of each individual.
Their costumes were beautiful. I was in awe. The packed audience gave well earned roaring thunderous applauds after each wonderful performance.
A reminder: don’t forget St. Rita’s Church Fair in Catahoula, to be held May 21 and 22. There will be a softball tournament, music, food and fun and friends! See y’all there!
My backyard needed sunlight. I had too many chicken trees; I cut down four last year, but that was not enough, so I cut down 10 more Saturday with the electric chain saw my son Dale gave me several years ago.
I’m a little braver with it now. It is good to have, because I use it for other trimmings around the yard and I do guard my fingers and toes. Now in my fenced in yard, I’m planting stuff along the fence.
If you’ve not yet considered installing security cameras around your home, you might want to think about it. They’re inexpensive considering how they can be beneficial. It’s too bad times have come to this, oh well!
Another news flash: Vallee Allemond told me Saturday while at the egg hunt she also has a converter and rabbit ears for her TV. I believe she receives more stations then me. We gotta make sacrifices.
Remember when we didn’t have TV’? Company came over, even our kids and relatives, we’d visit and talk.
There is nothing that makes better for conversing about a time as memories.
I mentioned last week that those who want to work as commissioners for the elections can call Tricia Hammon at 337-394-2211 ext. 1206. It’s on-the-job training; you’ll be proud to serve your community and it pays well.
We had an Exotic Cajun Journey tour last month. That Saturday night we stayed at the gorgeous Marriot Courtyard in Houma.
First, we ate seafood at the Bayou Delight in Bayou Black and listened to live Cajun/Country music. I was invited to sing about 10 songs with the band, mais cher c’est tes fun I like that me.
Sunday we traveled through the marsh lands where the grasses are taller than a car all the way down to Cocodri.
There, rising out of the marsh is a 75,000 square foot building that looks like it is right out of the “Jetsons.”
We took a guided tour and saw some of the incredible creatures that lurk in the gulf and marsh.
There is also a 65 foot observation tower that overlooks the wetlands as well as outdoor boardwalks.
The Cecil Lapeyrouse store is a tiny little place that is brimming with anything you need from worms, beer and cokes to antiques.
While some of the antiques are for sale, others are a collection of the owner’s wife.
We walked straight through the store to the boat launch and garden out back.
It was truly a fun step back in time!
If the Lapeyrouse store wasn’t funky enough for us, the Kenny Hill Sculpture Garden in Chauvin did the trick. It was an incredible story unlike any we’ve heard before. Want to join us on a repeat tour May 14 and 15? Call Paula, at 225-767-6916.
More next time!
