My Little Town- Melville, La.

Happy Monday !  It;s been a busy weekend –  reworking my site- so bear with me.

Storms came through this weekend  and knocked out power and internet. We are up today and everything is looking good. Typical weather for April .

As promised – I  thought I would introduce you to my little town in Louisiana.


Melville is – Melville is a town in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, United States. The population was 1,376 at the 2000 census. It is part of the OpelousasEunice Micropolitan Statistical Area. It was founded in 1889 and is known as the Atchafalaya River Catfish Capital of Louisiana. (wikipedia)

That means – No traffic lights, no fast food but  lots of churches and great people.  Typical small town in South Louisiana. So enjoy this weeks post as I highlight – My Little Town.
