My Hometown

Lafayette is the heart of Cajun Country. Beautiful bayous and close to the Gulf Of Mexico. The best foods ever, Crawfish, Shrimp, Oysters, Crab....and so on......and dont fergit Cajun Music!!! I spend most of my "off time" in my garage building a experimental airplane called a "Midget Mustang" It has a Lycoming engine and can cruise at 200 miles per hour.

Check out my PACE flag I bought in Assissi, now hanging in my bedroom window...

    Lovely place. If only there were no hurricanes! You are very brave to remain there. Your airplane looks very interesting. Good luck and let us know when it's ready to fly.

    Impressive pictures from Katrina's results - impressive because they are on a personal level.

    I think a VT meeting with you and our neighbor from Gulfport would be fabulous! My son's ex-girlfriend is from Lafayette, but I've been there only once. Cool place.

    Thanks Barry for stopping by. It's a work in progress so check back for more tips. Best of luck to you on the second day of hurricane season. My family's in Mobile (where I grew up) so I know what it's like.

    You are very lucky that your house was spared, but your poor mother and friends and neighbor.
