Not de-Cajunizing, in particular. Mike and I still very much enjoy our lives here in the heart and hub of Acadiana. After going to estate sales every week around here and seeing what goes on there, and the pittance that items are sold for, I have decided to "let go" of some things I have enjoyed, but haven't been using. I have raised enough money from my efforts to pay for a back to back 9 day cruise of Scandinavia followed by a 14 day Transatlantic with ports in Denmark, Sweden, England, Ireland and the Azores ending in NYC. I am in extremely good health, but I am 71 and I am not going to live forever!
