You are my inspiration. I don't think I can match your frugality, but it is worth trying.

If everything turns to ****, I wouldn't mind going back to Louisiana and giving a try at living on da bayou. The alternative is Mexico (or points south) but DW might prefer Da Souf this side of da border. We had a good time in Red Stick when we wuz dere.

An' I do luv da cookin'! (Homage to Justin Wilson and K-Paul.) I do a fair jambalaya (if I do say so myself). Missin' dem shrimps an' I had no good ersters for a piece. Doan' care fo' gator, no, but two, tree crawfish--we can be happy. One of my hobbies is bread pudding (making, eating). (I do believe I may have advanced the art. Necessito raw sugar. Now you know. )
