Sportman’s paradise personified

Southwest Louisiana ideal for true outdoorsman
11-2.jpg

I can’t help it; my chest sort of swells when I hear folks all over the country refer to Louisiana as the Sportsman’s Paradise. Why do they think of our state as a paradise for sportsmen? That’s simple; that’s what we are.
I live in north Louisiana and we don’t have to apologize for anything outdoors. We have some of the finest lakes, rivers and creeks in the country where the bass, bream and crappie roam and our rolling pine-studded hills and oak shrouded hollows and flats are home to some of the best hunting for deer, turkeys, squirrels et al to be found anywhere.

Accepting age will make it easier on everyone

Irby, Marna.jpg

Guess what? 2012 is gone and we have a new year to fill a clean slate on which we can make a new record for ourselves. Hopefully, we have learned from our mistakes and at least will not repeat the old ones. Being human, we’ll probably make some new ones. As old as I am, you’d think I would have a better handle on this, but as I used to tell my piano pupils, imperfect practice does not produce beautiful music. My goal is to try to correct the old ones and even replace them with better ways of doing things.
