A closed group of an intimate 14,198, you are not allowed to be a part of the fun unless you have Ruston or Lincoln Parish ties. I would write about it, but I don't even know where to begin. There are some ANGRY people here in small sleepy North Louisiana. Not only are they angry, but they also feel the need to publicize all their grievances on this Facebook page. I am astounded!
The big news in The New Hood is the land behind this small neighborhood has been clear cut. In case you are from the city and do not understand--ALL the beautiful trees have been cut for acres. The logging company leaves no sign of green behind. What once was a beautiful curtain shielding us from the outside world has been systematically cut down. We are exposed! The neighbors are not happy--but what can you do? If you own the property, you can do as you will. Sadly, it will take years for there to be any semblance of the beauty of the forest.
Halloween is approaching and signs of the approaching free for all have begun to appear in the neighbor's yards. I'm no especially fond of this holiday, but always have candy on hand for the visiting parade of ghosts and goblins.
Hero, The Wonder Dog, is still psychotic, but he is slowly adapting to his new home. He recognizes his house and turns in the drive and heads for the door when we go for walks. Not so sure we are making friends and impressing the neighbors since we ALWAYS have a hissy fit when we see their dogs and cats.
The calendar may say Fall, but the temperature is still summer. Thankfully it is a LITTLE cooler at night. Will I ever get to use the outdoor fireplace??
Sure do miss these little people. We facetime a couple of times a week, but that doesn't make up for the hugs and kisses I am missing!
If you see me, give me a hug and tell me it's for the grands!
HUNTING FOR THE FALL---HERE IN THE HOOD!
