    I do like me some Zydeco. Not a fan of the subject tho.

    thankfully my French is HORRIBLE, and my Creole is non-existant!

    WB: A political ad you can really dance to. Can’t beat that two weeks before the election.

  3. Robert Says:

    Being from New Orleans, it Music that I grew up, we all have some Cajun
    runing through our veins. Zydeco Music is Cajun Blues!!!!!

    Next, the traditional French dance, the “Yes We Can-Can.”
