Me on the radio, Don Dubuc Outdoors Guy on Craziest Fishing Tale book

Wow, this was a welcome last minute surprise!!! After months talking with local outdoors personality Don Dubuc, The Outdoors Guy, (on WWL 105.3 FM) he had me on his show this morning to talk about the release of “The Craziest Fishing Tale on the Bayou.”

Until then, I hadn’t realized how many times I say “… um, you know …”

.25 to my daughter’s college fund for every one. She’s got a really, really good start.

Thanks, Don.

Another book review just in … sort of.

Yes, the new phone book is here, and I’m too excited to sleep!

The Pelican Publishing Company, Inc. spring catalog arrived today. Look what made page 6?

From the publisher: “With a knack for humor and heart, Alipio likes to blur the lines between the scary and the silly.” Hmm, sounds a lot like life to me.
