I can't say enough about how nice and hospitable people have been so far. Its like they would give you the shirt off their backs if you asked for it. But I know they (often called coon-ass's) can be hot-heads too. So yeah, I'm gonna be a cajun...coonie...it will be good to get back to my roots. I beleive my Great great grandmother was French Acadian and was from the Marksville, La area a little north of Lafayette and Opelousas. Lafayette is only an hour south of where my parents live so they are super excited that I will be so close. It is also an hour west of Baton Rouge.
I'm excited about my new apartment; its more "in the city" than where I was living here (out in the country). But I will miss my old home I"m sure. I'd like to invite all my friends and family to come and visit me in Lafayette! You are welcome anytime.
See ya later Cher (pronounced "Sha"...cajun french meaning "dear one")
