Hearing about your family.

I would love to hear you talking with your Louisiana 'accent' (although you would probably think I have an accent)

This is my entry into Michelle Dizy's circle journal. ***The journaling reads “What I love about where I live is the fact that it is, well, its home.
I have lived in Louisiana almost my whole life; or at least for as long as I can remember.

I love the landscape; literally, I love the land. I love the trees. I love the piney hills of north Louisiana. I love the pine trees, the pecan trees, the dogwoods, redbuds, and magnolias. I love the way the sweet gum trees smell. I love the azaleas, the camellias, and the Louisiana irises. I love the wisteria blooming the in the spring and the honeysuckle and jasmine in the summer. I love going to the peach orchard in the spring to see the peach blossoms and in the summer to see the trees heavy with fruit. I love the long, only somewhat cool autumns full of color, clear skies, and cool breezes.

I love the food.
I love the spicy Cajun cooking and the simple warmth of home cooking. I love the seafood and I love summer vegetables. I love going to the Tech Farm salesroom in Ruston and getting fresh milk, meat, cheese, and ice cream. I love eating pie at Lea’s in LeCompte and seafood at Deanie’s in New Orleans. I love the fried chicken and vegetable plate at Strawn’s Eat Shop here in Shreveport.

I love Louisiana politics.
Louisiana politics are storied, sometimes sordid, and oh-so-very interesting. Our laws are based on Napoleonic Law and seem to be different from every other state in the Union. And to confuse things just a little bit more, we have parishes instead of counties.

But most of all, I love where I live because family is here.
We live a little over an hour from my parents and a little less than an hour from my parents-in-law. My sister lives just across the river. Two of my three brothers-in-law and their families live less than two hours away. One brother-in-law and his family live in the southern part of the state. My daughters see all of their grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins often; even great-aunts-and-uncles and second and third cousins. I love that extended family is such a large part of our lives.” ***The tags read … “little girls in smocked dresses with bows in their hair; Ruston peaches, ripe and juicy for just 6 weeks in the summer; graveyard workings; boating, skiing, and tubing at the lake; crawfish boils and cookouts; catfishing in the dark; crepe myrtles, both bare in the winter and in full bloom in the summer; bonfires and fireworks on Christmas Eve; hearing “ma’am” and “sir”
said to elders and others; southern men with southern drawls and old-fashioned manners.” ***TFL!***
