  1. Great post! I’m glad you gave Termite a yard pass. Just remember, don’t make a habit of it. The “baby” of the family always gets off easy, (according to my oldest boys). He has more distractions now than when he was home schooled. MOM wasn’t a distraction. He is definitely at that age.
    BW, I’ve got that same shirt and hat you were sporting. I don’t know about you, but I feel like a humongous geek when I wear that hat. However…it’s better than having to see the plastic surgeon to surgically remove more malignant skin cancers.
    About those Cats…that’s why I use a Just -Grab -It glove and pliers. I bought a catfish flipper, but haven’t had to use it. I also think Specks are pretty slimy.

  2. Loved that the boys went ahead and competed in the adult category without grumping. There are adults who grump about having to compete with adults 😉

    Really interesting post.

  3. Polo Green. Not as fave as Brut but my secret to this smelly stuff is if I can’t smell it I like it.

    attaboy’s all round. Ain’t math what people used to do before the internet?

  4. Great job Mom,FYI a 15 year old boy don’t want to be told he can’t compete with adults because in his mind he already knows it all and can do it better.

    If you have never eaten fried sail cat,try it as it tastes just as good if not better than a blue or channel cat.We don’t eat a lot of them as my fish of choice is always mullet.

    • Well, here I go confessing something that might strip me of my Bayou Woman title: I don’t want to skin a catfish. I never have fooled with them, and I just don’t want to learn how. I have a friend who would do it for me, though. I would be very willing to cook and eat it!!!

  5. What a great weekend! I too have a teenage boy, and I understand how proud a couple of days like this can make you. Kudos to you for making time to be with them! I look forward to hearing more about your adventures!

    • Hi Chris! I will take some time a little later when things slow down to look at your website and learn more about you. I own two sit on top kayaks that are very, very dusty, I’m ashamed to say. Welcome to the bayou and please visit often. Have we met? BW
