Just when I’m whining about being short on dish towels, Nicole posted this picture with their bread rising under Louisiana tea towels.
Can you see Westlake on the map? That’s where I grew up. Lake Charles is where I worked and Moss Bluff is where I lived as an adult.
Chad will probably always feel like Louisiana is his home state, even though we moved away when he was 9. Nicole loves Louisiana and Addie may love it more than both of them. She LOVES my uncle who lives there. She loves Holly Beach in Cameron, Louisiana. Addie would be a good cajun girl . . it doesn’t bother here one bit to help clean a fish, skin a squirrel or butcher a deer.
Up until a few years ago, I always thought we’d retire back in Louisiana but I know now that we will not. Is it weird that the two states I’d like to go back to live in retirement are the two states that Vince will not consider? I wonder if I said “Anywhere EXCEPT Louisiana or Missouri” . . if that might help me end up there. You know I always said I’d move anywhere in the south EXCEPT Texas and you see where we ended up.
Maybe it’s time to try a bit of reverse psychology with him.
