A little "Lagniappe"

In the Louisiana French-Creo language there is a funny sounding word that is pronounced "Lan-Yap" and it means "a little something extra." But, to Louisianans it is more endearing and is often translated as "here's a little something extra special just for you!"

The best way to describe it is that it is like before eating a great bowl of Gumbo you're told to take your shoes off. "Why do I have to take my shoes off" you might ask? Because, the Gumbo is so good that you will have to take your shoes off just so you can wiggle your toes while you enjoy it. That's Lagniappe!

Because of this wonderful thing we call the "Internet," I have had the privilege to meet some of you in person and am getting to know many of you as friends and people I love. So, in the true Louisiana tradition I just wanted to say "thank you" for all of your support and encouragement. And, here's a little "Lagniappe." Be blessed and keep shooting!
