Gibson Wildlife Gardens

This was a beautiful, quiet, peaceful place. They rent out cabins and serve you breakfast. There are peacocks, turtles, gators and mosquitoes. Luckily the cabins have screened in porches to save you from being bitten.

Lockport/Larose dayride

Took a ride out to meet a friend from my forum ( We ate at a place called Blackie's poboys. It was a good day but hot, as most days here are.

The men of Nick's Shooting Range

I started my trip visiting sweetie and his friends at the range, then continued on to Denson, LA to find an old cemetery. Nobody heard of Denson, but they knew the street I was looking for. All ended well, I found my destination.

A very tasty lunch

Went to get my hair did today and met my friend for lunch afterward. We went to Sammy's in Bucktown. I got the daily special, gumbo and half a shrimp poboy. He got the messy, delicious roast beef poboy. Then we rode to a few cemeteries to say hi to some loved ones.

A visit from a friend

Last night we had dinner on the lakefront at Frenier Landing. Afterward the boys worked off the carbs by juggling in the front yard. It's always fun to watch them learn new tricks.

Orange dog caterpillars

This is new. We planted an orange tree a few months ago. I have seven oranges on it right now! Well, there's a new resident - actually about 8 have been found so far. They are these caterpillars. They eat the leaves and can severely damage a young tree. The thing is they turn into swallowtail butterflies. I'm going to have to keep a close eye on this.
