Callin’ Baton Rouge

I’m Cajun.  Well, a quarter Cajun, though I’d like to think it’s a dominant gene. However, I did not grow up in Cajun Country and in fact, it’s been a remarkably long time since I’ve been there.  My mother’s side of the family is all still there (the elder ones, anyway; like anywhere else, the … More Callin’ Baton Rouge
