Dem Boudreaux & Thibodaux Again


I've been scarce lately, but plan on getting around to your blogs today and catching up before I go into severe withdrawals. Besides juggling the three teen kidlets and one of their graduations, the writing contest took up quite a bit of time...and we're putting together the summer edition of The Rose & Thorn Literary zine. I hope when it goes live, you'll all visit and enjoy the awesome prose and poetry selections served up for our readers.

Now, on with some mo' of dat craziness of those two crazy Cajun friends, Boo & Thib~~~

Boudreaux live across dat bayou from Clarence who he don like at all. Dey all de time yellin' across de bayou at each udder. Boudreaux, him yell to Clarence, "If I had a way to cross dis bayou, I'd come over dere an beat you up good, yeah!"

Dis went on for years. Finally one day, de State done
built a bridge across dat bayou right by dere houses and Boudreaux's wife, Marie, say, "Now's you chance, Boudreaux. Why don you go over dere an beat up dat Clarence like you say?"

So, Boudreaux, him say, "OK," and start across de bridge. But he see a sign on de bridge and he stop to read it and den he go back home. Marie say, "Why you back so soon?"

And Boudreaux say, "Marie, I done change my mind, cher, 'bout beatin' up dat Clarence. You know, Marie, dey got a sign on dat dere bridge dat say, 'Clarence 13 ft. 6 in.' You know, he don't
look near dat big when I yell at him across de bayou!"
