Back in Louisiana

Well, here we are in our second home,  Abbeville, LA.  We had a good time in San Diego with family and friends but never seemed to remember the camera!  We also saw friends in AZ on our way....after that it was just head through TX! 
The whole Betty's RV gang on stage at the Saturday jam session in Erath

MaryAnn and Bobbie having too much fun!

 We had a great trip to the Sugar Cane farm where we learned how they harvest the sugar cane and transport it to the mill.

Now this is quite the piece of equipment!
 One evening Bill treated us to a fish fry that he had caught.....everyone brought something to go with......yummy as always! 

Then Judy & Dan entertained us 
 Dan started playing at the nursing home again....it's so nice to see the faces of the residents
Big solo!
This 87 yr old lady played the Cajun accordion with the band
On Saturday we went to the Martin Accordion Factory where we have been twice before.  We go every time we get the opportunity.....it is so great to hear the wonderful music
The family band 
This gentleman just picked up this brand new accordion they made for him
Joel Martin who plays professionally @ 23!  If you want to hear a little of the family band here.....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBPFBFM5Xgk 
Playing the original Cajun music with no amps!


  1. Lookin like good ole' times at Betty's again. Hope we can get there sometime after our Florida gig.

  2. Looks like you are having the usual great time.

  3. Hey guys, Always great to hear of the good times at Bettys. Tell Peg n Paul and the rest we said hey.

  4. I'm happy that you're in Louisiana and not up north. It's been cold here to but nothing compared with the rest of the country. The golfers are out in force so that's a good sign. Keep on having the good times and enjoy every minute. Stay healthy and warm.
