Actually, this is really, really, really cool!
When Boy Ginger was a kid, he and his brothers used to go out fishing with Daddy G just about every weekend in the summer months. We would take the boat down to Hebert's Bait Camp in Big Lake, Louisiana and fish until Daddy and the older boys ran out of beer. We had a great time back then, and to this day tell "Big Lake" stories about the time we ran the boat aground in Lamberts Bayou, or the time we drifted into a school and caught 110 fish on one trip!This pic is actually "pre-boat" days. In fact, it's pre- Ginger days! Must have been taken about 1960, when Miss G was just a twinkle in Daddy's eye!
ANYWAY, FABULOUS reader "Inthehouse" told me he heard on the Today show that a pink dolphin was spotted in Big Lake. Sure enough, it's true! A charter guide spotted a school of dolphins (porpoises, really... they are mammals) in Lake Calcasieu, which is the real name for Big Lake. It's pretty unusual to see porpoises that far inland, anyway, so I'm sure they caught the guides attention. Then, there it was, as pink as can be!
Isn't it ADORABLE! I want one!

It's hard to believe this actually happened in Miss G's childhood home!!
