Driving to 1147 Boston Ave. in Nederland provided a surprise like no other encountered on recent assignments. Arriving at my destination, a new restaurant, Finch Hutton, I had no idea what to expect. A gracious welcome to our party by an attentive staff impressed me right off the bat, but when I saw the menu offered at this French-American bistro, shock is a mild word to describe my feelings.

Many things come to my mailbox, desk and computer every day concerning “religion,” a word I don’t really like very much. Because I have written in this realm for many years, I suppose my name is on a lot of mailing lists, and some still rely on the U.S. Postal Services to deliver their goodies to my door. Some are interesting while others are dumb. Much of it goes to File No. 13 after I have scanned through each piece, but some of it garners a second read and goes to one of the incoming boxes on my desk.

“Pleasant” is the very first word that comes to mind when you have an enjoyable visit and delicious meal with the Millers at Pine Tree Lodge in LaBelle. First fun thing that happened on our recent visit was that the lady’s voice in our GPS kept repeating “label” for the word “LaBelle,” but we arrived just the same after checking the various directions given for the scenic restaurant along the banks of Taylor Bayou in Southeast Texas.
