As Martha and I were making our way over to Houston, I stopped for gas, (and to give us both a little exercise) just off Rt 10 in Lafayette, LA.
It took only a few seconds after I opened the door for me to notice. . . Zydeco music playing on the gas station speakers.
Welcome to Southwest Louisiana!
Happy music I was introduced to many years ago and have continued to enjoy.
Then, as I’m pumping gas, a tricked-out sedan enters the area, windows open, speakers blaring, similar to what you might experience in your own community. The difference however, instead of hyper-driven sub-woofers and repeated use of the F word, it was Zydeco.
The guy pulled up to the other side of the my pump and sat there a few moments before cutting off the engine. As he got out, he looked at me and all I could say was, “Man that sounded great”. He smiled and and walked into the store.
This is not the song that was playing, but it’s close enough.
