If you want to see what a lot of south Louisiana looks like, here is a nice picture of the Atchafalaya Basin Swamp. This is where the Mississippi River would be draining if man would not force it into submission down the current path.
I had arranged to meet Swooze (from Mesquite, TX) at a restaurant in Lafayette. It was fairly equi-distant between the two of us, Baton Rouge and New Iberia, where she was in town visiting with her brother. She brought along the two most delightful parents you can imagine. We talked her dad's ears off, so he took solace in Frank's more sedate manner. (Although if you can withstand the millions of questions Frank fires at you, you are doing well.)

I bought some shot cotton and some homespun type stripes for some table runners and she bought bright and beautiful batiks. Mom got fabrics for a table runner, blue and red. I think Dad and Frank slept off the lunch in the car while we shopped. To their credit, the men were very very patient and didn't complain much.
Here is my haul, when I was friviously purchasing these fabrics I did not once think of my stash report...........
Let's do this again.....I loved seeing that you were taller than me......I gotta keep friends like that!
