What Ya’ll doing this weekend?
This girl living in the country, that works in a diesel mechanic shop just 20 feet from her front door, is sitting at her desk ,in the corner of the shop.
The doors are open and she can see out into the side yard where puppies and squirrels scamper all around.
The music on the guys stereo is country today,currently on KBON, but they aren’t here so she could go switch it if she would like.
But, its a local station and they are giving updates on some of the events that are going in South West Louisiana this weekend.
Listening to all the activities and events that are going on this weekend on the radio, Twitter and Facebook makes her realize that she lives in an awesome state where you can celebrate so many culture events.
She thinks….there is always a reason to celebrate! Which is wonderful!
In Port Barre, Louisianathey are celebrating the Cracklin Festival. Wonder how many people really know what a cracklin actually is.
Cracklins are actually pieces of fried pork skin….I know that does not sound appetising, but actually, they are so good when seasoned just right!
The Cracklin Festival has great Cajun and zydeco music, carnival rides, and of course lots of cracklins!
When she was a little girl, she would steal the bag of cracklins from her daddy and today she has to watch how many she eats, because she has to watch them calories, yea cher’
In Rain, Louisiana they are celebrating the Frog Festival.
Where there there is good music, carnival rides, fun Frog games….Like Frog jumping and racing! Can you imagine how funny that must be to watch!
…and of course the cuisine (clearing throat) yep Frog Legs! Fried Frog Legs!
One time she was having dinner with husband at friends house down the country road they live on and the guys decided to take them Frog Hunting!
Never before in her life had she seen such huge frogs!
And then even more funnier than the way we were all dressed with these huge rubber boots that like went to my ears!
were the men jumping in after the frogs after they spotted them with a flash light in the pitch dark boat, in the middle of the pond….was watching them trying to catch them! That was such a sport to see!
…..She has learned that fried frog legs are not too bad…They actually taste like chicken!
