Happy All Saints Day


When I was growing up in New Iberia, Louisiana, we celebrated my grandmother's birthday (the first Miss Lottie) by going to the graveyard with a picnic lunch and white paint and painting the graves.  November 1st, All Saint's Day,  was a school holiday, probably statewide holiday, but I assumed when the Lottie's reached a certain age (my Mom's a Lottie, too) Louisiana understood the importance of the Lottie's and made our birthday a holiday.  Mother and I are still waiting for Texas to get with the program, or maybe get some above ground graves for goodness sakes.

To digress, here's a picture of me and the Sisters at Lynn's great party last night.  You knew I had more than one Halloween persona.

Happy All Saints Day
