Gobbler makes trip worthwhile

Remember when you were a kid and you thought Christmas would never get here? That’s not unlike my situation waiting anxiously for the opening of turkey season this spring.
Last year about this time, I was recovering from heart bypass surgery, which knocked out the entire season. I’ve been in the kid-anticipating-Christmas mode for months and when it finally got here, it would be an understatement to say I was excited.
Last week, I joined a group of friends, Keith Moore, Jodie Williams, James Anderson and Donny Parkman, to make our annual 600 mile trek to the Texas hill country to ring in the season; I was out of town for Louisiana’s opening day so the Texas adventure would be my first crack at trying to fool an old turkey gobbler.

Remembering those who have passed

Irby, Marna.jpg

This is possibly one of the hardest columns I’ve written in a long time.
Not only have two very special people gone to meet the Lord, Dr. Harold Harms and Dr. Rick Byargeon, but it brings back memories of others so dear to my husband and me, like when I lost my friend Maydell Harms and when my husband Wes and our special friend Dr. Joe Smith left us.
