Cajun Mother's Day Buffet + A Cajun Waltz

It's finally Mother's Day and my wonderful son is whipping up a scrumptious lunch buffet for me and some other family members and friends. He's including my faves and will be boiling some crawfish on the patio, too. Here is what's on the menu so far. It's a beautiful, sunny day and I am really looking forward to it. Wishing all of you a very Happy Mother's Day! Cheers, cher!

A Cajun Waltz

Here's a little clip that my friend Bill took recently, of a Cajun waltz at the Saturday morning dance at Fred's Lounge in Mamou, Louisiana. Don Fotenot and Les Amis de Louisiane were entertaining the crowd. The weekly dance is a tradition in the area and packs them in at 8 am.! Oh, the life of a Cajun!

Wishing ya'll a wonderful week, filled with fun and special memories. Merci beaucoup for stopping by!

Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day! Your brunch is scrumptious! *sighs* Oh, for some delicious LA food!

Thanks for the link! It helped. But the path stuff I eventually found on Amazon on one of their many pages. Will post about it a bit later.

We're moving to NC the summer of 2014. The more organized this place is, the easier it will be to paint, etc. when renters leave the other place.

If you're planning to visit your place, wait a bit. We're having a cold spell, like early winter.
