Mother’s Day! We have been in the house a little over a month before we could have our first celebration. We gathered and had hamburgers and belated birthday cake for Mary. She left us on her birthday to go to of all places New York. Why in the world would anyone leave lovely Louisiana to […]

We decided to christen the house with a special name. Steve set that task upon my shoulders. I wanted to name it something in German, but everything I could think came up with a harsh sound and did not fit appropriately. So we decided to name it The Big Castle and express it in French. […]

Trey and I traveled to Odessa to visit Claudine. The trip was wonderful, but stressful. Seeing how Claudine has declined. I thoroughly enjoyed the time with Trey. He was great company.

End of 2008 We are doing very well, despite being displaced. We are living in Lafayette and Steve is once again wishing he could go back to the peace and quiet of Bancker.
