What I did
St. Theresa of the Child Jesus Church
The last song was very cool. A chorus, primarily made up of folks of African-American heritage, supported an amazing singer, a male of the same persuasion. They sang "And Jesus washed our sins away." I sounded like we were in a Black Gospel Revival Tent and joyfully added our hand clapping to that of the rest of the folks.
We both agreed that we'd never celebrated Easter in such a memorable fashion. Folks were friendly and the celebrant had a sense of humor. What more can a man ask for in the Cajun Center of Louisiana?
It's nice and "toasty" here in the park. We'll enjoy that as long as we can, since thunderstorms are forecast for later in the day. Dinner will be at half six. We can make it that long...
As afternoon drifted in, so did the wind and thunderstorm. The rain was only intermittently heavy, although it sounded so in the coach. It relented a bit as we walked over to the "rec hall" for another shot at getting happy. We visited with several folks near us and then the food onslaught began. As with most potlucks, the food was both numerous and delicious. From roast turkey with all of the trimmings to baked ham and various local sausages. Casseroles, salads and rolls filled out the menu.
Today is Betty, the owner's, birthday along with a couple of others and an anniversary or two. Cards and gifts were presented and we really had a great time. The food was outstanding. It seems that everyone brought their speciality. The cake was a custom job, with the signage from the park as a theme.
We're back in Shorty now and the rain has ceased. Time to get online and relax.
We'll be back in Texas tomorrow and I'll fill you in, if the data connection is up to par.
