No comments

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 Opelousas−Eunice 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.
