There are a couple of good reasons you haven’t seen a new post from me this week. One, I’m in the throes of making preparations for the first Bayou Woman Adventure next weekend. Six amazing women will be joining for me a not-yet-revealed adventure of a lifetime!
Second, I’ve been studying long and hard for this Saturday’s upcoming radio show topic about a man who shot a trophy deer in Illinois, brought the testicles back here on ice, and someone from LSU extracted the semen from this deer and then artificially inseminated does at a research farm. Some of those fawns are about to be born, and I have no clue how long it will be before they know if any of those will be bucks with racks the size of the Illinois big buck. Don Dubuc, the radio host, will be posing the hard questions as to what the ramifications of patenting and licensing this extraction technique would have on things like big buck contests, legal issues, rewriting of deer record books and more.
Since I’m not a deer hunter (nor was my father), this is a topic I don’t innately know much about; and therefore have had to do lots of homework. That is why you haven’t seen hide nor hair of me in a while.
But to keep you coming back for more bayou life, I’m taking the easy way out, and as a follow-up to the previous post asking “who was that girl?”, one reporter interviewed me and summed things up pretty well. I thought you might like to read the article which came out yesterday in the Tri-Parish Times.
And here’s an old photo from when my book was in its hey day.
Oh, and if you want to listen Saturday morning to see if I can (not) make a total fool of myself talking about dead deer semen (GROSS), you can listen online here Saturday morning at 8.
