I haven't been up on my correspondence, but I did want to wish all my friends the happiest of holidays.

So I thought I would share with you a taste of N'Awlins.

Below are some links to videos by a local band of lunatics called "Benny Grunch and The Bunch". They are introduced by a local television celebrity by the name of Frank Davis, who hosts a local news slot termed, "Naturally N'Awlins."

I hope you enjoy (and I hope the quality is better for you than for me with my slow-ass computer)...grumble.

Anyhoo...Enjoy. And thanks to the most loving group of folks I've never met. Grin.

Happy Holidays.

"The Twelve Yats of Christmas"

"Ain't Dere No More"

and the rest is lagniappe--

New Orleans Dictionary-- http://www.crescentcity.com/dictionary.htm
*note* The word "Yat" was not found in this particular selection, so I'll fill ya in. A "Yat" is simply a N'Awlins native who boasts the true accent, originating from the Irish Channel--or the "Ninth Ward"--"Da Ninet Wawd")

And once again, "Merry Christmas Dawlin'."

I loved,"Whatca Gonna Do, Ain't There No More," it was hilarious!  I had to load "Real Time Player" to make them work but after than I laughed myself silly.  Thanks kiddo, you make ma day. Me thinks the guys at the radio station are very canaille?

Thanks for the late night humor you!

This even makes a good "day after Christmas" read.  Merry Christmas, Karen...

You've made me want to come back again, and soon....

Since it's about that time again, I thought I'd give this a little boost.

And since I never know what I am doing one day to the next, if I'm a bit scarce, I wanted to wish you all the happiest of holidays.
