Bonjour ma Cajun friends—it’s me again; opinionated columnist and general know-it-all Mrs. Nettie Mae Avec Domino.

Y’all, just when I was starting to think the whole world was going to hell in a hand basket, something happened that warmed my old heart; More about dat later.

But first, I wanted to share a post from dat Facebook, by a Mr. Spark form Texas. I get a lot of emails about many of these topics, so I thought this might amuse a few of my emailing characters. Here’s what he posted:

I took down my Rebel flag (which you can't buy on EBAY any more) and peeled the NRA sticker off my front window. I disconnected my home alarm system and quit the candy-*ss Neighborhood Watch. I bought two Pakistani flags and put one at each corner of the front yard. Then I purchased the black flag of ISIS (which you CAN Buy on EBAY) and ran it up the flag pole.

Now the local police, sheriff, FBI, CIA, NSA, Homeland Security, Secret Service and other agencies are all watching my house 24/7. I've NEVER felt safer and I'm saving $69.95 a month that ADT used to charge me.

Plus, I bought burkas for me to wear when I shop or travel. Everyone moves out of the way and security can't pat me down. If they say I'm a male wearing a burka, I just say I'm feeling like a woman today. Hot Damn... Safe at last…

Well Mr. Spark, you make some very interesting points, but dats a crazy way to save $69.95 a month. I’d recommend clipping coupons from dat new coupon saving page on da FACE Magazine site.

Moving on. OK, I got to say congratulations to the US Olympic team for bringing home the gold!!!

And finally, a topic dat warms this ole bayou queen’s heart. The August flooding in South Louisiana has left many people’s lives turned upside down. The flooding of homes, schools, churches and businesses has changed the lives of thousands of people for ever. However, what makes me proud to be a southerner is to see how quickly local people jumped to the aid of their neighbors. From the Cajun Navy to college students to people I don’t even know, everybody just tried to help one another. And dat was nice.  

Until next time, Au revoir y’all,

Nettie Mae
