Here comes Peter Cottontail......

Peter Cottontail came hopping up to my house via UPS. He's holding a pink miniature rose bush which I intend to plant somewhere and keep it forever. I love it! Thanks to Denise, Paul, Megan and Jake for remembering Grandma Beatty on this Easter.

My most excellent day!!!

I went to a golf course today for the first time in many, many months....before Hurricane Rita. As I was on hole #4, a man came up behind and asked to play with me since he was alone and so was I. It was my first time on that golf course and he was very knowledgeable. We played 18 holes and then went back to his home where we sat on his front porch with his wife and had a drink. That is such a Southern thing to do....a perfect stranger...and I am following him home for a drink. He lives on a street that I go down a lot....a street in old Minden...It is the house he grew up in and he is 78 years old. After many years in New Orleans, he and his wife came home to this old house, updated it, and now have cocktails every day at 5 on the veranda!! Here's to new friends in a new town!!
