September Page #1
Yeaaa, September. October, and cooler weather will soon be here. The summer rain was good, my swamp is full, and the river is moderately low. Last year this time, our situation was pretty the same, and the hurricanes brought us a Christmas flood. Pray for no hurricanes this year.

This month’s recipe, Shrimp Scampi Pizza, on page 2 is absolutely scrumptious. Instead of over pasta, this delicious sauce and shrimp combo is spread over pizza dough and baked. So good!!!!!
