Patchwork

A Leesville lady literally gave me the shirt off her back…delivered it to the INDEX…and I took it!!! One Saturday night in recent weeks, hubby-dear and I took Mom and Unkie to Nicky’s for her birthday dinner. The electricity was still out on Cobb Drive, so we decided a treat was in order for the Birthday Girl!

CHANGE OF AMERICA

Why is American politics so dysfunctional? One could say they are so self-serving. Others will say the leaders have tunnel 
vision and do not deal with the whole problem. When you turn on the news you hear the left talking about the right and the
right talking about the left. On the other hand, here is what you might say is the “real world” and what it looks like could happen

Patchwork

“I drove the lawn mower,” I said, describing how I helped pick up limbs and debris following the storm of March 28. It reminded me of the “I carried a watermelon!” line out of the movie, Dirty Dancing. Just plain stupid!! Our nearly four acres on Cobb Drive survived the storm, but had hundreds of small branches and limbs all over. Hubby-dear had intended to plant some fruit trees, but every time he dug a hole, it filled up with water

Thank you to the mysterious person who sent flowers on Paul’s wedding day!!! I felt so special!!!! Saturday morning, March 22 dawned bright and early on Cobb Drive when a sleeping Grammie was awakened by a little boy voice saying, “Hi Grammie. It’s me!” I cracked my eye and there stood by sweet little grandson, Braeden, who had been carried to bed from the car late the night before.

Remembering When. . .

By Lola Russell.
 
Last Sunday, a lady mentioned that she had some questions about angels, and while I could not answer all her questions, I know what I believe. And if anyone is in doubt, all they have to do is look up the word in concordance of their Bible and it will enlighten them. As for me, I became a believer when I was only five. I have told it before, how my sisters and I used to have playmates next door, named Pearl and Ruby. We practically lived at each other’s houses.

FINANCE LAW

By Pete Abington.
 
The Times Picayune is writing a “Louisiana Purchased” series. They are pointing out that more than $7 million between 2009-2012 was spent on meals in fancy restaurants, sporting tickets, auto leasing, hotels and more. They allege that this money is taken from the campaign accounts of the candidates. At this time it is uncertain what, if any, new regulations will be introduced to identify, except for usage in the upcoming session.

INDEPENDENT VOTER

The Independent Party voters are playing a bigger and bigger part in the election process. Questions are asked: Why aren’t
they affiliated with the main line party? How do they vote? When do they vote? Why are there more than ever? Are the Democrats or Republicans suffering? A recent report reflected the Independent voters are barely showing up at the polls

Patchwork

I have never been to a Bachelorette Party. Back in the 1980s, when I married, bachelor parties were for the young…. and I was an older bride. However, I did have a number of great showers, hosted by friends, the Methodist Church and BPW ladies

DEBATE ON GROWING POPULATION

Governor Bobby Jindal frequently comments on the growth and population in our state. He is very positive and states it is still growing. Some argue that the population in Louisiana, rather than growing, it is changing. Growth is only in small pockets of the state.

Patchwork

I wonder if Pete Nelson would like to come to Many and build a complimentary treehouse in my Cobb Drive woods?? It could be my writer’s retreat or a place to go to meditate, pray and solve the problems of the world. I have become very interested in the new program, Treehouse Masters about builder Pete Nelson and his many works of art. Treehouse Masters premiered on May 31, 2013 on the Animal Planet channel at 9 p.m. Nelson, an energetic 50-ish man, is the tree-loving head honcho of Nelson Treehouse and Supply in Fall City, Washington. He owns and operates Treehouse Point, a retreat consisting of six treehouses that clients can rent and experience the glories of tree living
