I head down south for a boat ride through the swamp. I see Aligators, birds, nutria, spanish moss and more.

My Dad is coming to see me and he lives in Mississippi so he wanted to bring me some craw-fish but doesn’t know where to get any. He has to pass through Louisiana on the way here. Any ideas on where he can get some?
You can order some crawfish and have it waiting for him through Wagon-Load Power Shopping, an Amazon Affiliate.
I really enjoyed making this video. I was born and raised in New York City, so my knowledge of Louisiana Cajun culture was very little at best when I was a young lad. When this song was released back in 1977, I was a mere 17 years old. When I first heard the song, I didn’t think it quite belonged on the “Ear Candy” album–and further, what the heck does this song mean? Well, now that I’m older and more appreciative of various cultures, I’ve come to learn more about Louisiana Cajun culture and cuisine and that knowledge put this song into perspective.
This song was the only Helen Reddy tune to make its appearance on Billboard’s Country chart–albeit at an abysmal No. 98. “Laissez les Bontemps (sic) Rouler” (the correct French spelling is bon temps [two words]) was released as the B side of “The Happy Girls”. “The Happy Girls” was a huge disappointment for Helen Reddy–it only peaked at No. 57 on Billboard’s Hot 100 in 1977. “The Happy Girls” charted a bit better (No. 14) on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart–a chart that was very good to Helen whenever the pop chart wasn’t.
I hope everyone who enjoys Cajun culture, crawfish, étouffée, and country music will also enjoy this video.

If I open up a crawfish restraunt that serves Louisiana style crawfish $7.99/ lb. Would you be willing to pay?
My restaurant would also serve blue crabs, dungenees crabs, poor boy sandwiches, raw oyster, jambalaya, etcc…. everything Louisiana style. You will get a choice of Mild, Med, Hot, plus 4 different cajun flavoring for your crawfish, every 2 pound you order, you get a free corn of cob and 1 Sausage.
If I decided to start off slowly and cook them from home by the pound order over the phone, are you willing to pick it up $5.00/lb?
Bring it on Dannyboy I’m getting Hongry just thinking about it!
This is how we do it down here in Lafayette, Louisiana

Cajun accordionist Nathan Abshire’s “French Blues”. One of his best songs. Slide is my tribute to a Louisiana crawfish boil. I hope, for you Louisiana natives who have moved away, or a friend of Louisiana culture, you enjoy the music, and can smell and taste the mudbugs.

Our governor and "representatives" continually utter the same tired rhetoric about our "unique culture" and "our spirit" when confronted with questions about Louisiana’s status as a "bottom-of-the-list" state. The abysmal condition of Louisiana (crime, poverty, healthcare, education, quality of life, etc.) isn’t going to be remedied because of our "joie de vie" or our mardi gras parades.
So quit complaining and collecting evidence and do something to help.
