When this article appeared in the Times Picayune many years ago, I thought it was a great account of the Mandeville lakefront and how people buy old houses and fix them up. Then I noticed the picture of the man riding the horse under the oak trees, and it turned out to be my stepbrother. What a shock that was.
I haven't seen him in 40 years and there he is in the newspaper riding a horse at one of my favorite places.
