In Other News, Water Wet, Rocks Hard

I don't make the news, heck I don't even report the news. I just let you know when someone else reports something that in some way relates to Acadiana, or Louisiana. So far today, there's not much coming in. So, I decided to go back to a story I passed on four days ago, from thehuffingtonpost.com concerning an avocado tree in Houma. It made an avocado. Actually, it made a bunch of them, and that's rare for this area. But don't just take my word for it, listen to Barton Joffrion, a horticultural agent at the LSU AgCenter in Houma.
"A lot of people have the trees because they're pretty, but it's been quite a while since I've heard of one that's produced actual avocados," Joffrion said. "I guess the problem is you really need ideal conditions for the tree to make them."
It's all true, and you heard it here first. I told you...it's a little slow today.
