Musings on bayou life

In the 1960s and 1970s, a columnist for the Morgan City newspaper (Daily Review) typed up random bits about life on the bayou in and around Amelia (St. Mary Parish). I’d love to track down Joyce Dugas’ book.

Meanwhile, I’ll post snippets from her column.

I didn’t know that the town Amelia was named for an Amelia Dupuis. I did know the sad story of Barbara Verret and her children. I’ll have to blog about that some day.
