Along with 100 other people who were milling about, trying to capture themselves beneath the legendary Duck Commander sign.
It’s a cult thing.
Because sometimes you just have to!
After all, it IS Monroe, Louisiana!
Mostly I did this for my guys --- because they are huge huge fans…and I admit it, I got swept up in the adventure too!
Hi guys, guess where I am?!
You dared me and I did!
And yes, even the taxidermy has a long beard….
And you CAN pick up plenty of souvenirs ----
Baby, you are NOT in DUBLIN anymore! LOL!
And NO, you can NOT have one of these….just because it is CAMMO!
And NO, we did not see any Duck Dynasty stars here….they have much better things to do than hang around where fans gather ---however….
We went here for dinner --- Cotton!
How many of you watched Chopped??
Chef Cory Bahr was a former winner, and this is HIS restaurant! Oh my goodness, was it wonderful! And while we were enjoying our meal---who should walk in??
Pardon the grainy picture from the rear, this is a zoom shot from across the restaurant…..it’s Martin from Duck Dynasty. He knows where the great eats are!
As we were leaving I was introduced to Chef Cory ---and we had a nice little chat! Turns out he is a quilt lover too and was telling me about one he has that is all feed sacks ---and upon Susan telling him that we had done the “bring a tourist to Monroe” loop that included Duck Commander – he proceeded to tell us that the entire Robertson family was in the upstairs room having dinner at that moment ---THAT was the furniture I heard being moved around above during our meal.
So close but yet so far ---and I was tickled to be able to give this bit of gab back to my guys at home ---
This morning we are off and running with a very busy and full day. it’s a Rectangle Wrangle workshop today, followed by a lecture tonight ---it was 100 degrees yesterday with high humidity and it should be the same today ---can anyone say PONYTAIL!? It’s all about keeping cool and quilting on!
Have a super Friday, everyone!
