...A big Tip o' the Hatlo Hat to Pamala!
Is your age showing (and mine, too, since I recognized the "Hatlo Hat" reference), or is the Hatlo cartoon still running in your part of the country? I haven't seen it since I was a kid (back in the Eocene)...
BTW: I finished The Tin Roof Blowdown
this morning before work -- which means I finished all the Dave Robicheaux novels. I'll read some selections from Jesus Out To Sea
today, then start on the Billy Bob Holland series.
A further digression: Back in the early '80s, I read a book by William Least Heat Moon called Blue Highways
-- Moon was a teacher who had just lost his job and his wife and decided to take a trip around the U.S. on the "blue" highways of the map, staying off the freeways. The only part of the book I remember well is when he was in Louisiana. I have long since wanted to visit there, but, having read JLB's series, I feel that I have been.
Thanks, Jim, for being such an inspirational writer!
