Bonjour my Cajun friends, it’s me again, opinionated columnist and general know it all Mrs. Nettie Mae Avec Domino.

Well peoples, you not gonna believe this one… The other night I was lying in my bed [all snug as a bug], den all of a sudden I seen it! The bright lights! I thought it was the second coming or something. Excited; I rosed up thinking I was about to meet my maker! SWEET JESUS I cried!!! But as soon as it appeared, it was gone. Then, in a flash it was back. Then it was gone. Then it was back… my water hit the floor… ole Nettie Mae didn’t know what to do or where to go. So I grabbed my shotgun [just in-case] and tip-toed to the window.  Mon dieu! It wasn’t my sweet Jesus, it was a new sign da put up at the grocery store across the street. Son of a biscuit I cried!!!  I went from the second coming to a marketing billboard in da blink of an eye… Dat sign lit up the sky like it was the 4th of July in downtown Port Barre!  “Shop at Boot’s”, “Beer 2 for 1”, “Congratulations Bruce & Caitlyn”, “We sell Medical Marijuana” or something like dat… All I know was dat every night since, ole Nettie Mae gotta cover her eyes with a extra pillow jus to get some sleep… Now you know dat ain’t right.

Well, enough was enough, so the next morning I called the law. I tried to reach that handsome Mr. Lt. Clay Higgins, but they said, “…he was out looking for fugitives”. I said, “well don’t bother dat man he got enough to do”. So I got transferred to da man in planning and zoning and you not gonna believe what he said… “Well yea Nettie Mae, they got a permit for dat sign and there ain’t nothing I can do to turn it off”.  Hmmm, well I ain’t happy about it, but like I always say, “you gotta be nice to get nice”, so Nettie Mae’s gonna stay on the down-low for a while to see if dat store’s gonna turn off dat sign at night like I asked. If not, I’m pretty sure I got some buckshot that will reach dat sign from my window… I’m just sayin.   

Anyway, I got a lot more to tell y’all but da people at FACE said they only got room for this much. So if you wanna read more about what I got to say, get yourself on da inter web to www.faceacadiana.com  OR, if you got something to tell or need advice? Send you stuff to grumpy@faceacadiana.com and I’m gonna read it.  

Au revoir y’all,

Mrs. Nettie Mae Avec Domino
