Never Thought

October 19, 2008

I'd ever get so excited about $2.99 a gallon for gas! When we started out for our Texas road trip last weekend, I remember being excited about the $3.17 I spent per gallon. I also never thought I'd ever be so pleased with a piece of blue plastic, but I am. Six years ago I purchased a plastic blue tarp to cover the back of our station wagon. We had just moved into our house on base and we were making multiple trips to the compost/dirt pile to create beds around our yard. Ever since then that blue tarp has traveled with us and been used in so many different situations. It is such a simple thing but really useful. Here's a pic of our van loaded up last weekend before we headed to Festival Acadiens et Creoles (if you are ever in Louisiana in October this is a GREAT event...all of the best Cajun and Zydeco groups play). Notice the blue tarp? also the wagon and little potty? this is the height of festival season in Louisiana....a wagon, a tarp or picnic blanket, water, and dancing shoes are required. Today we are lucky because the Pepper Festival is right down the street from us so we'll be loading up the wagon,eating crawfish po-boys, and dancing the day away. Here's Camille at the end of Festival Acadiens!

Yes, you just never know what you'll be glad for eh? Oh the countless uses for a tarp!

Fond memories of Acadiana for me are Thanksgiving time and the smell of processing sugar cane. Also, to see sugar cane stalks strewn all over the road from the trucks leaving the fields. I travel to New Iberia quite often this time of year! C'est si bon!
