That could be our theme song or our slogan. Not because we are on a lake, but because we have been flooded with rain for the past 13 weeks. We are officially SOAKED!
Rick and I did go on a road trip to Natchitoches, Louisiana, Friday after he got off work. We drove to Shreveport and spent the night. (We did not go a casino.) We got up and drove to our destination. It is a quaint town on a river, with very much the feeling of New Orleans. We strolled the historic district, went to the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame, found some to the spots that Steel Magnolia was filmed, toured two plantations, drove around the country side, and then drove back to Gunter in a flood.
Sunday, after church we tried to go to the water going over the Lake Texoma spillway with thousands of other people. We settled on the floodgates, and we will go when it is less crowded. This is the fourth time (1957, 1990, 2007, and now). Sunday is also the day that I am officially married to a "senior citizen". It is Rick's birthday. We did have several meals for him this weekend.
On Monday, we did make it to the spillway and drove some of the other roads around to see the water. We then went to Brandi's for a fish fry with his girls. This was a great ending for a holiday weekend.
