    What beautiful pictures. Natchitoches is eerily similar to Nacogdoches. I wonder if there is a connection. Indian root word? Any linguists out there? Would love to know what was on the menu.

  3. What do Clabber Girl and Pabst Blue Ribbon do together at a picnic…or are the boxes just for transportation purposes? I’d hate to clean up the explosion if we mixed them. 🙂

    I was thinking that this is Leonard Nimoy’s family out for a Louisiana lake picnic, Kerbey. They all fell off the Spock truck! Beam me up, Scotty!! Goodness. Maybe the kid is Little Lenny.

  7. Sorry, took me a while to get to the comment, had to google “Natchitoches”, thought it might have been some kind of Mexican dish given there was a picnic going on…

    Strewth, feel like a bit of a dill now, you know, a couple of ‘roos loose in the top paddock!

    But you folks have some funny names for places…! 😉

      I’m sorry. It would be very confusing. Natchitoches is a town in the state of Louisiana, in the southern US. There are a lot of Cajun/Louisiana names that are hard to say. They even have a lake called Lake Pontchartrain. ! Now I’ll go google “top paddock.”
