I live in Louisiana somewhere in between Baton Rouge & New Orleans. I use to do Home Health but have not worked outside the home for about a year. There is plenty around here to keep me busy with my big yard, pool, 2 baby basset hounds, houseboat, small garden & hunting lease; not to mention my husband. I have no children. I have so many cook books & I just inherited all my mother's. As much as I hate to I have to box a bunch up & I guess give them to the Salvation Army or something like that. I guess my favorite cookbook is River Roads I & II, the first ones I ever received. I'm pretty easy to get along with as long as I'm not too crowded, unless I'm somewhere like Mardi Gras or outdoors, & I don't like being around complainers. I love the water & the outdoors, however it gets really hot down here. I love my basset hounds & it really hurts my feelings when I hear of animals being abused or hurt.
