Now back to our regularly scheduled programming (all Emmylou, all the time)...

Yesterday Carol had a hankering for some crawfish, so she, Grammie, Gary, Emmylou and I went to the Louisiana Swamp Thing and Crawfish Festival. Except for the cajun food, which was pretty good, it wasn't much more than your typical funnel cake and tie-dye clothing booths set up in an empty block-size parking lot. But with the nice weather and two stages playing mostly zydeco music, we all really enjoyed ourselves.

The biggest hits, however, were the petting zoo and pony rides. I always feel so sorry for those animals but I have to say that Emmylou thought they were the best thing in the whole world. She rode the ponies twice and fed the animals in the zoo twice, including goats, deer, a llama, wallabies, and sheep!

We like Gary's hat. It's going to be a tough season. We need all the support we can get.
