The oil slick in the Gulf is hanging about 2-3 miles offshore--just a matter of time before the wind shifts to the N.E. then it will hit Bama.
The folks in Venice, La., the jumping off place--the road ends-- are taking matters seriously and not waiting for a Pie to fall from the sky, tough bunch there, 33% of nations seafood comes out of Louisiana.
Maybe the winds will decide to blow S.W. and end up way out in the gulf, I hope so.

Unless I miss my guess, that area should have a lotta good pasture land and farmland. Eephus Swift could probably give you a more accurate description, unless your mom told you about it. I bet it is beautiful country.

Must be a fertile area, Mom's B'Cert says G'dad was a Nurseryman(Agriculture)--never knew him.

Paris, Tx is on my Bucket List too--from the movie of the same name--Nastassia Kinski--- Hubba!

Later---Ax.

My Grandma was born there too. Great little town, still has a few cobblestone streets. Also has a Dr.Pepper plant you can tour. You'll have to try one of their fountain drinks...SO much better than you get in the can/bottle! You can also purchase Dr.Pepper in that area made with Pure Cane Sugar instead of the corn syrup.

I can bet on the taste of the real Dr.Pepper.
Got Dublin on my clipboard, have the address of where Mom was born, and should be a good "Walkabout".--may even go the back roads with a trunk full of film and cameras--Bridges of Madison County---;):)

Might be a "Post Schribt'"-to some--but in my Later Years:

"Freebird"--'Skynard":


"If I leave here Tomorrow, Would You, still,remember me"

Just a thought and a chuckle---Life is Gravy--
