Learning dat Cajun through dem kid books

“Santa” bought Princess Whinalot (my 7 yo) Petite Rouge for Christmas. If you haven’t guessed what the book is about, go drink more coffee…lol…Cajun Red Riding Hood of course.

Q: Are you going to Mardi Gras, Greta?

Yes, that is a question I received from a friend on Facebook (Greta Perry if you want to be my friend) last night. My Answer: “I am living Mardi Gras.” Unless you grew up here or lived here through Mardi Gras season (this is my second one), you really can’t grasp what it is (I […]

Did you ever think we’d end up here?

It is 7:30 AM on a Saturday and why am I awake? Oh well. Got the coffee, got my computer and am watching “Chulo the Stupor dog” chase Lovebugs. He may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but he wakes up every day wagging his tail, ready to conquer the back yard and […]

Things I’ve learned about Louisiana

Hard to believe we have only lived here a little over 7 months now. I have soaked up the culture and traditions and love learning about them each and every day.
