I hitched up yesterday in
Wheels were rolling by 11:00 a.m. with a 3 hour tow ahead of me. It was mostly interstate so it was easy going with hardly any traffic. I kept the music off and just listened as Freedom and Liberty got to know each other again. It was a good sound and it felt like they both were happy to be back on the road. Me too. Ok, here is where ya'll think I may be crazy or as some southerns say it, "touched". It never has been real clear to me as to who or what is doing the touching. Anyway, crazy or not, the three of us got to know each other again and it was good.
I arrived at Red Shoes RV Park which is part of the Coushatta Indian Casino in Kinder, Louisiana. I'm here for two reasons. The first, I did today, which was to visit my sister, niece and nephew in Lafayette which is about 70 miles away. It was a nice visit and will have to last until I get back sometime around Thanksgiving. The second reason is to attend and be the best man in my oldest sons wedding. The rehearsal is tomorrow (Friday) followed by a crawfish boil. The wedding will be Saturday evening. I'll head back to Mansfield for a final doctor appointment on Monday before hitting the road in a western direction bright and early on Tuesday morning.
I thought I was going to enjoy a nice buffet dinner at the casino but when the hostess said $40.00 dollars I passed on it. I don't think I could eat $40.00 dollars worth of food even if it was Taco Bell. I found a Burger King and enjoyed a Texas Double Meal for less than $10.00. My refrigerator and freezer is almost empty because I'm planning to defrost it sometime Sunday and hopefully re-stock it before leaving. We will see if it happens or not.
Some sights from Southern Louisiana.
|Red Shoes Campground. About 20% full, but should increase over the weekend.|
|I thought some of my Yankee friends might want to see what a crawfish pond looks like. The little red things are crawfish traps. They are baited with either fish or processed pellets and checked daily.|
Ya'll take care of each other. I'll Cya down the road.
