Mississippi, Louisiana & Uncle Chris

posted in: About us | 2

Guess what!  Chris Richards is in Mississippi.  We are heading there straightaway to try to convince him to come with us.

On the way, we are spending the night at the Lake View Park campground in Eunice, Louisiana.  We stayed there before.  Eunice is the “Prairie Cajun Capital Of Louisiana” and on Saturday night Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys are playing in the Lake View Dance Hall.  You see, in Louisiana there are dance halls.  Where people dance.

We have seen Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys before (and not just on NPR).  They are a great Grammy nominated cajun band!  Plus Steve Riley is hot (in an old person kind of way but I am an old person now).  LOVE accordion!  Trying to get Ryan and Jack to play one.  Staying at Lake View comes with two tickets to see Steve Riley at 9pm — and that leaves time for dinner (which means boudin balls and crawfish pie).  I am so excited!

I am trying to embed the video — will it work?
