Patchwork

I don’t think I have ever been happier to see Spring than I have this year. There’s nothing like green grass, blooming plants, pretty flowers and the sounds of children playing in their yards at dusk. Knowing summer is on the way makes me so happy. (I’m not a fan of the high temps, but I wasn’t fond of chilly temps of winter, either.)Indian summers of New Hampshire quickly come to mind. Not to chilly; not too hot, but, just right!!

Patchwork

The nicest thing happened on my birthday! Mom called early and said she and Betty were having coffee. I told her I’d be out in a little while and to keep the coffee hot!I ran into town to Daylight Donuts with plans to get myself a special treat and pick up some glazed donuts to share. While standing in line, one of my favorite former MHS Tiger football players came in. We chatted for a minute as we stood in line and when I ordered my three raspberry jelly donuts and nine glazed, he piped up and told the girl to put that on his tab.

Patchwork

The time has come for me to re-organize and throw things away. I wonder how many times I’ve said this in the past 30 years. I am a packrat extraordinaire!! Books, newspapers, clipping, greeting cards, old programs from plays, football, pageants and dance recitals, pictures galore and more.

Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

STATE WIDE LOUISIANA POLITICS

How is this shaping up?  In the governor’s race, candidate for State Rep. John Bel Edwards, D-Amite, made a $200,000 me-dia buy that took a lot of jabs at Scott Angelle.  He pointed out “The bottom line is Scott Angelle is only telling half the story” (de-scribing Edwards as a Christian and a West Point graduate.)  He points out Angelle is driven by Bobby Jindal and has been one of his workhorses for many years.

Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

MAKE IT LOOK GOOD
 
Louisiana’s credit rating has recently been evaluated by several agencies, both Moody’s and S&P. Governor Jindal would have made me a very good used car salesman. He tries to make something that looks bad look good. In this case, it was our credit rating. He has publicly stated that the agencies didn’t lower their rating on the existing outstanding general obligation bonds. That is true, but this is what Jindal did not tell you. This was done because our state constitution gives those bonds first-call, even before the employee’s retirement benefits (all the money in the state treasury). If we go broke in this state, those bonds will be paid. Even at that,we must realize that the statebonds could cost more money in the future.
