Patricia Gannon: A-hunting we will go

A-hunting we will go

You could tell the hunters from those who went to Wal-Mart as the Krewe of Victoria celebrated Mardi Gras at The Feed and Seed. Down in the weeds for sure, Duck Dynasty was the theme and royalty team Gerald Guilbeaux and Tish Johnson spared no camouflage carrying out the plan. We usually don’t party down by the railroad tracks, but the gentlemen were just too entertaining to leave, including “Phil Robertson” Dr. Luis Meza, Charlie Wyatt and “Swamp Thing” Cory Johnson. Sadly, a $20,000 engagement fee precluded the real deal from attending, but not Jim Guilbeaux, Margaret and Jay Ruffin, Jeanie Rush or Mike and Lynn Crochet. What we loved: the doorman, who says he’s worked there for a year and only had one fight. That’s as many as the Lafayette Parish School Board.
