Howdy from Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, the Crawfish Capital Of The World!
It's me, Trinity Mary Grace Caillier, writing. Hope this finds y'all well. We live in Breaux Bridge now; the home we had back in Lake Charles was infested with fleas and mold; it was making us all sick. It was bad!! Now that we're out of there, we are all doing much better, thank the Lord!
I have made new friends here in Breaux Bridge, and I love it because there's so much in the way of Cajun food and/or music. Lake Charles had it too, but Breaux Bridge really has it goin' on!
In May, maman says we're going to the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival. I can't wait; I have never been there, but have always wanted to go. Just a few weeks ago, the city of Eunice hosted the annual Accordion Shootout, and I entered, but I lost when I got a bad case of stage fright. LOL I don't know how those musicians or singers do it; I was a bundle of nerves when I saw everyone staring at me!! LOL
I screwed up royally. Kept hitting the wrong notes. Instead of Cajun music, my accordion sounded like two hissing cats about ready for a rock-em, sock-em fight, feline style! LOLOLOLOL
I am not performing at the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival: no way am I screwing up again!! *sheesh!*
The weather is supposed to get nasty tomorrow, including the threat of tornadoes, but today it is supposed to be beautiful. Might as well take advantage of it while I can. After school, I will probably go to my friend's house, where we will watch movies or play on Facebook.
Tomorrow we will probably be hiding in the bathtub. All of us. That is going to make for some seriously cramped conditions: where are the storm shelters where you need 'em?? Living in a tornado prone area does little to comfort us when there are no shelters/safety rooms available for us to hide in!
I am sure the very rich folks have tornado shelters/safe rooms, but as for us "common" folk, we can't afford it. Ground's too wet here; it wouldn't really do well to build a shelter; besides, there'd be the risk of bugs, snakes, and severe floodage if it rained! NOT good!! :(
I love this time of year: the Cajun festivals are starting to crank up big time; this is the time where we spend crisscrossing the Bayou State to hit some festivals; we do this every year. It is getting expensive, though, with gas going up, so we may have to abandon it after this year. It was fun while it lasted; I hate the thought of missing out on some of those festivals; they're a total blast!!
Well, I gotta get up and get ready for prison .. ah, er, SCHOOL!! .., so I must go now. I will write in here again soon, probably around Easter break which is coming up fast. Until then, this is Trinity Caillier saying au revoir! Take care and God bless!
~Love, your Cajun friend in Louisiana, Trinity Mary Grace. :)
