We were hoping for more of a gestalt version….

Ffolkes,

I still can’t sit long enough to do much, so, here’s another archived Pearl for your enjoyment… You’ve possibly seen some of it before, as it includes another very old Pearl which was re-blogged at some point… It will do for our purpose today, which is to get us to tomorrow…. Take care, y’all, & be well….

There’s a word, a good word, Acadian, another word lifted from another language by English, used to describe the group of folks who settled in Louisiana in the early 1800’s.  Their culture, brought with them from France, melded into the mix of English,
Spanish, Indian, and African cultures that already flourished in the New Orleans area, producing what we now call Cajun food, music, and culture. (“Cajun” is a bastardization of the way the word “Acadian” comes through into English…. When pronounced correctly, it sounds like ‘a cajiun”, which, on the naturally lazy tongues of the new worlders, became “cajun”…..)

    • LOL! Good one, but, golf is also out of my league right now…. Re: Cajuns… my first girlfriend was half-cajun; her daddy was a full blood from Louisiana, so, I got the word on them from him and her… I’ve loved most of the Cajun food I’ve tried, but, to be honest, Shrimp Creole is nasty stuff, unless a Cajun makes it…LOL…

      I’ll try to get by, but, possibly not yet…. BTW, I talked to Lady P… She IS taking a break, to throw trolls off her trail…. She’s okay, just busy out in the BBR….
