One of the things I love about small towns is the flexibility of your day.
This morning, I spoke with a young lady about getting photos of 60 women who attended the Cotton Blossoms Cotillion into the paper at 8:55 a.m. and then left for my 9 a.m. appointment at the mayor’s office.
The meeting was with the head of economic development, the parish police jury president, the director of public works and the engineer who’s designing the 4,400 feet of road work between the main drag and the high school and hospital. They’re applying for a $1 million capital outlay grant. So, that’s kind of serious, grown-up stuff.
But as I left town hall to walk back across the street to my office, I ran into this fellow in the town hall parking lot. He was concerned that there was too much human foot traffic between town hall and the post office and it was disrupting the important work of being a squirrel.
You gotta love fall mornings in northeast Louisiana.
