I just thought I would share this book with everyone. It’s all about the festivals held in South Louisiana, and even features the Cattle Festival in Abbeville! The man who wrote it lives here in Arlington, MA, and our daughters went to school together. It was pretty funny when we were talking on the playground and he told me that he’d spent some time in Abbeville. That was certainly a first.

Anyway, here’s the link to a description on LibraryThing  (a fun, if nerdy way to pass the time and learn about new books), if any of you are interested:  Rhinestone Sisterhood: A Journey Through Small Town American, One Tiara At a Time.
