Louisiana

I took a trip this month with Betsy May & Reuben back to Louisiana. We stayed with my brother Ed and his wife Mitzi. We had a really good time visiting with the folks, playing pool, walking and of course eating good southern food.
Digger - a real good dog.

The Pool King



Mitzi taught a few pool pointers to the Bets and Reuben.




Dad walking Sandy - another good dog.






Love those country roads. The other nice part of the trip was the warm weather! '70 - '80's when we were there and no rain.

The second part of the trip Bets, Reuben & I drove to St. Joseph - the town where the kids got their start - as one of our old neighbors, Mrs. Ratcliff told them.


We went to church - the church my Dad was priest of after he left Panama.

The kids spent their time with their Dad - and I stayed with the sweetest Ladies of St. Joe. We played Scrabble, "Golf" & "Oh Heck" (two card games) and just had a great time talking, laughing and reminiscing.













One other cool thing - I drove the kids on the Levee - I used to drive it with my Dad's Chevy, but this time it was my Mom's Honda.




The "Good-bye Shots"







We had a great time - see you next year Mom & Dad!

Hi Megan and Keith,
Looks like you had a great trip back home, a real walk down memory lane. Can't believe how all grown up B and R are! And your Mum and Dad look so well Megan.
Kent and I will be in Seattle for a few days the week after Thanksgiving, will give you a call.
