|My Father in one of his favorite spots|
My father loved sitting outside, drinking coffee, visiting with old friends and thinkin' on things. In the photograph above he is sitting out in our backyard in one of his favorite spots. The old shack behind him on the left is still standing. You can also see the back of some of the stores on Newman Avenue; the main drag on the Island.
The old green table where he is sitting was actually twice as long as what is shown in the photograph. Many birthday parties were held around this old green table. Lots of hot Louisiana summer days saw watermelons sliced and devoured from this same table.
