Michigan is reporting what they call a serious problem with Louisiana red swamp crawfish invading ponds and other bodies of water. A year after it was first reported, it has grown into an "epidemic". It's even being called "disastrous".
The other day I was shootin' the breeze with my 11-year-old Bill, and he brought up the Cajun legend of Madame Grand Doigt, or Lady Big Fingers. I had never heard of Madame Grand Doigt, and the legend is as creepy as it sounds!
