It's funny that you moved to Tennessee (another great state in the land of Dixie), as that was the other state I was seriously contemplating a move to, but decided on Louisiana. How different are things, besides the existence of counties and lack of parishes?

Besides NO Mardi Gras, Sugar Cane Festival, Shrimp Festival, etc in festivals and no hurricanes not really a whole lot..other than the snow up here along with the ice covered trees. Everything is brown but I know that come spring all the pretty flowers, and trees and the grass will once again come to life. We used to live in Tennessee a long time ago and have always felt that it was home. But Louisiana will always be my other home. I will still come to visit since my sons still live in Iberia Parish. I made tons of friends while living in Louisiana.. Great Bunch of People. And I have lots of friends and family here in TN as well.. another Great Bunch of People..

Two states united by Southern history, although also pretty far apart as far as Southern states go.

LA has sugarcane festivals??!?

Reluctant, New Iberia has a sugarcane festival every Sept at the end of the month.. unless a hurricane happens to stop it.. We used to go all the time. And we sat down along Main street with a group of friends across from Shadows . We had everything sat up thanks to hubby's boss man.. complete with a canopy, trailer with porta potti, and a little outdoor kitchen on the trailer. Hamburgers, hot dogs for kids, and plenty of coolers, each with their own drinks for adults and kids.
There are goodies going on out at City Park as well for the festival.. and a carnival. Of course the parade downtown as well as other goodies there,

Am still trying to locate anyone who remembers the Harper family at 2025 Day St, Alexandria, during the 50's when I was stationed at Alex AFB.

Many years ago, we were one. The Great Expulsion chased some of us into Northern Maine, while the rest of us escaped to southern Louisiana. So Hi from the northern half of y'all! We ended up calling ourselves "Acadian".

We still celebrate Mardi Gras like you guys do. I can't find any crawfish up here though, unless I catch some myself. We do have pancakes called "ployes" though!

I wonder if I have any distant relatives in LA...
