Ajoleblon...A Cajun Tale

This journal is a bunch of rants about nothing. Mostly lighthearted happenings in the life of a woman who is very simple and who wants for nothing but greatly appreciates whatever is given. You will find nothing profound here but hopefully something that will make you laugh and that's what I enjoy doing most. Being humorous. Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause.

Feeling Good

I feel so damned good I don't know what to do with myself so I decided to share the worst picture ever taken of me. 

Let me set this picture up.  My dad and I used to go fishing together.  I had two brothers but for some reason, Dad always took me.  This particular fishing trip was when I was married to Brandi's dad.  They own an island, off of the Gulf of Mexico, called Chenier au Tigre, (French for Land of the Tiger)  I dearly loved going there and probably was one of the things I missed most about being married to him, the opportunity to go there to fish, crab, seine

( large net with sinkers on one edge and floats on the other that hangs vertically in the water and is used to enclose and catch fish when its ends are pulled together or are drawn ashore)
and swim in the muddy waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

This particular trip, my Dad and I, had put out the gill net (which is illegal now) and we caught this huge garfish.  We had a great time getting it out of the net and we were so proud of our "trash" catch.  There's not much you can do with a garfish because the meat is mushy.

Please check out Brandi on the far right hand corner.  If that ain't redneck with her can of beer full of  koolaid in it.  My grandmother loved beer and Brandi always wanted some and my grandmother would fill her beer can up with "beer".

I am 28 in this picture and don't look a day over 10 with my stick figure and cigarette dangling from my right hand.

You're right!  You don't look old enough to have a daughter, much less a cigarette dangling from your fingers! lol  You look about 12 years old!  I was shocked when you said you were 28!  You don't look bad at all....you just look.... YOUNG!

Glad your happy! :)

So cute, lol, you DID look like a young'un at 28. Come to think of it, you STILL don't look your age. You say that's the worst picture ever taken of you? I just left you the worst suck-up comment ever on your journal.

It's true though.

And by the way, I used to keep "gars" in my aquarium as a teenager. Someone told me not to keep it too long because they get "big". LOL, guess he was right.

Jimmy the suckup
