CHURCH POINT — For Cole Guidry, life doesn’t happen sitting at home on the couch, and that’s why he’s hit the road and taken the couch with him.
Guidry, a native of Church Point, said, “Life is not going to walk into your living room. Get off the couch and do the things that you keep making up excuses for why you can’t do them. Get off the couch and give it a try.”
