Bonjour my Cajun friends, it’s me again; opinionated columnist and general know it all, Mrs. Nettie Mae Avec Domino. Well apparently I stirred the pot last month with my comments about the Speed Vans. You should have seen the emails I got online… mon dieu! When I axed y’all to tell Ole Nettie Mae what’s buggin’ you, Poo Yie, y’all didn’t hole no punches.   

My first letter came from Hester in Bosco, LA.
Hester say, “Nettie Mae, why do these young parents let their kids run around the grocery store like they’re playing in their own backyard? Last week one of those little wild childs hitch a ride on the back my scooter while I was shopping. Next thing I know, the ole scooter’s up on two wheels and there’s a whole row of toilet paper fallin’ from the shelves. Fete Gos! … Nettie Mae, mais dats buggin’ me!”

Oh Hester let me tell you somethin’, dat aint right. Dats them young parents today. Not spanking those kids cuz its gonna hurt their little self-esteem, so those wild chilrens grow up disrespecting everybody and dey mamma’s, too. Next thing you know, they on dat KATC Crime Stoppers special.

Which brings me to my next point…Nettie Mae is in LOVE!  Yep, you heard it right, In LOVE with the long arm of the law, Mr. Lt. Clay Higgins with the St. Landry Parish Crime Stoppers. If dat man aint John Wayne reincarnated I don’t know who is. Lt. Higgins tells it like it is and he aint afraid to beat those former wild chilrens down to size, cher. But I’m gonna tell you what, when Mr. Lt. Higgins walks close to the camera and says, “…pay attention, I’m talking to you” or “ you better have your affairs in order”, oh it makes ole Nettie Mae all warm inside which is why I think I’m in Love. I aint felt no warmth inside since my poor ole pop passed in 1972. Aint nobody cooked a Gumbo like dat man.

So I’m gonna close with a Great Big Thank You to all of the good law enforcement officer’s dats taken care of us and KATC for putting that handsome man, Lt. Clay Higgins on my TV. Nettie Mae sure appreciates it. 

Remember cher, get yourself on da online and send me a email letting me know what’s bugging you!

Au revoir, 

Mrs. Nettie Mae Avec Domino
