At the Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival

What's more fun than a small town festival?
Barney and I went to the Ponchatoula, Louisiana Strawberry Festival last weekend, mainly to see our two cousins (91 and 89 years young) who were the Grand Marshals of the parade.

Barney's brother Larry drove with these two lovely ladies in a 1921 coupe...about the same vintage as its celebrity occupants. Had so much fun visiting with all the relatives who came to pay homage to Lou and Joy.

The best strawberry shortcake on the planet was so good. I ate some before lunch...and some more afterward! I'm working on mastering Joy's original recipe with a flat of delicious little sweet Louisiana strawberries that we brought home. Here's a photo of another cake made for the occasion by a cousin, delicious as well.

Ray and Elizabeth Deselms were there...these newlyweds were highlighted in our popular Best of the Best from Air Force Families Cookbook that includes a recipe and story of their wedding day...another fun family affair.

She requested more books...like the shortcake, you just can't have enough of a good thing!
