July 2, 2011---Anxious moments at at the home of Allen & Carol in Youngsville, LA. Heavy rain nearly ruined the holiday weekend! Rained 4 inches in 35 minutes. The drainage system is not adequate to handle the water. Ditches all fill up and a lake is created in the neighborhood.

Picture on the right is looking toward the drainage ditch across the road. Neither the ditch or road can be seen looking west along the south wall of the McGee home.

Allen and Carol's daughter is observing the situation wih lots of concern. Smiling is not easy.

Waded down the street and took a picture looking back toward the house located across the street from where we live.

Look at the debris line on the flower pot and foundation to see how close the water level came to getting on top the slab.


June 30, 2011---It has come to my attention that the 4 mcgees (as well as other boaters) are referred to as CLODs. This term is being applied to those who are not on the water. The term stands for "Cruisers Living On Dirt". It well applies to us, as we have spent a lot of time in the State of Wyoming where we were born and raised.

Keith and Allen are pictured with their Mother "Beth". She resides in Gillette, WY which has been her home for the past 86 years.

The large base instrument appears to have little feet. Actually it is Max behind has new passion. He is learning to play this fine instrument. It is a new inspiration for his Grandparents Keith & Maryann.
