It could be their healthy eating habits (I try), or it could be their father's DNA (more likely), but my kids are skinny. S-K-I-N-N-Y. When you turn them sideways they disappear. They're not emaciated. Nobody call C.P.S. I do feed them, you know.

**Warning**This may not interest anyone who is not a Ragin' Cajuns fan, doesn't like football, has never cheered for an underdog, has never been to Louisiana, could not find Louisiana on a map or doesn't have an alma mater.

Forgive my nostalgia and this one teensy cheer...Yea, Rouge! Yea, Blanc! Yea, Cajuns! Allons!
