I'm In the Paper!


I must admit I have a little bit of an "in-road" to the Houma Courier... my BIL is a feature writer for the "Living" section. That being said, I now know to be very careful about what is said and done in his presence, or references to me (or some of the other family) may well appear in his twice-weekly column. For instance...

Here is this reference to a recent visit to our area, and an overnight stay at our home (we were purely a B&B this trip, as time was limited on both ends of his visit and we each had other events scheduled.) And I quote...

"A left turn from (HWY) 120 onto a dirt road takes you to my brother's house
where I thought I was promised a Sunday morning waffle breakfast. But when
my overworked sister-in-law overslept, the "waffles" became healthy and
delicious oatmeal. "

Although DH inferred to BIL that I was ticked about this comment, my response was somewhat different...


To BIL Bill (and Lynn, also), you are welcome here anytime. NEXT TIME we WILL have waffles!! I promise!

Well, I guess I just "returned the favor" to Bill. Be careful what you say, do, and write, Bill; you just might show up in my BLOG!! :)

Now I can get off my soap box and go get back to work.

1 Thes. 4:11-12 (GW) Also, make it your goal to live quietly, do your work, and earn your own living, as we ordered you. [12] Then your way of life will win respect from those outside {the church}, and you won't have to depend on anyone else for what you need.

Have a blessed day!


  1. Too funny Kat...did you really over sleep - with company in the house? You were tired. Hope he got dry toast with that oatmeal. Thank goodness BIl has a sense of humor.

  2. hehehehehehehehehe! you got off easy! my time in the paper referred to a "shot gun" wedding!

  3. Yes, Marty... I was POOPED! We left the house early that Saturday morning for a trip to Lafayette, did not get back until almost 10 that night, and then came the Sunday morning "waffle" time. He (BIL) does have a good sense of humor (runs in the family) and so it was not a big deal.


Thank you for visiting! I love comments... so thanks for taking the time to leave one.
