I went to the Seniors' Day at the Rapides Parish Fair last year.
I enjoyed a great free meal and visited the livestock exhibition barns.
But I don't think I will ever go back.
I have never seen such a display of greed.
It seems that many of the plant nurseries in the Forest Hill area generously donate numerous plants, flowers and shrubs for the Seniors.
However, many of these Seniors try to carry off as many plants they can, even bringing their own yard carts, etc. to remove as much "free loot" as possible!
A few got many, many plants. Most got none.
And I would guess many of these plants never got planted.
