My wife and I have four children. We're Cajuns and Live in SW Louisiana. We're conservative Christians and hold to the Reformed Faith. -- I'm a first generation Protestant, and my wife is second generation protestant.
My blogging is way down and there are two big reasons for this. Reason one is I am working straight (eight hour) days instead of my usual twelve hour shift work. The other (and bigger) reason is my computer at home has crashed and burned. It's totally dead.
Since my last blog I became another year older. Friday night Lisa and I went out to eat with our friends Gary and Liz and Tommy (TK) and Kelly. We all meet at Café Margaux for the wine tasting time, where we meet and visited with a number of other friends. Then we went to the Outback Steakhouse for dinner.
We feasted and visited. TK delivered a letter from his alter ego (Dr. A.R. Minian) and insisted that I read it allowed to all at the table with us. It’s a great letter, but it took me twice as long to read it as I should have because I laughed (Liz said I cackled) so much while reading it.
Saturday, Lisa and I were volunteers at the American Heart Association’s annul banquet and auction fund raiser. I had to rent a tux (it was a black tie affair). Karen K., who is on the board, was one of the main organisers and she asked if we would help with things. Lisa and I were happy to help.
The event was held at the Isle of Capri Casino. The food was very good. The local Newspaper donated the wine for the event and they had some good entertainment after the auction. We didn't get to enjoy the entertainment (an Elvis show) or dance to the music, because there was work to be done. But we did get to enjoy the food and a couple of glasses of wine. It was a lot of work, but I enjoyed myself and I think Lisa did as well.
Sunday we went to Bethel to worship the Lord with others. It was good to praise and worship the Lord for His many blessings that He has blessed us with.
Sunday afternoon the little boys and I went to a near by field and tossed around a Frisbee. We had a good time. Then, after they bathed, we I read several library books to them and put the boys to bed. MK and I were supposed to get together for our wine and walk-a-bout prayer time, but I didn't here from him, which usually means he got called out to the hospital.
Christian brought a young lady to church. He spent much of the day with her playing pool at his (maternal) grandparents house. Morgan came to church, but then had to work afterward.
Yesterday was my 44th birthday. It was also Karen K’s birthday, so Lisa and I went to supper with Karen and Harry. We (actually Harry) drove over to Carrabba’s in Beaumont, Tx. The food and the visiting were both very good.
