The Unique Festivals of Louisiana
A Girl's Best Friend
Children these days are busy filling their time with extracurricular activities. While the usual options are sports, such as football, softball, cross country, cheer or dance squad, or even ballet or playing a musical instrument, some look elsewhere to find their chosen activity. For Faith Anne Johnson of Natchez, Mississippi, she looked to her father, Randy Johnson, and his experience with horses and found a whole new world.
Seasoning for "The Season"
Along Highway 61 just south of Vicksburg, Mississippi, sits the third oldest town in the state—Port Gibson. First settled in 1763 along the banks of Little Bayou Pierre, it became an official part of the United States in 1788. Port Gibson was home to significant figures, such as noted author Constance Cary Harrison, and has seen many visitors in its over 200 years as a town.
Tips for Dressing the Turkey's Table

Harvest is done on Smithland, the fields have been prepared for next spring, and all is as well as can be in the season of taking a bit of a break from daily labor. During harvest time, the days of the week are irrelevant. What counts are sunshine and dry air and the stamina to keep going, day after day. Now that the field work is done, important activities like those related to hunting season will take over the daily routine.
A Piece of the Pie
When our editor, Jennie, asked me to share an article on pies, I almost died. Pies are not my thing. However, I decided that most of the world loves pies; so here I am. Whenever you see the pictures of holiday dinners, there is almost always a dessert table loaded with all sorts of pies: cream pies, meringue pies, fruit pies, nut pies, ice-box pies, and baked pies.
