Where are we today ?More wonderful weather here in Abbeville La. Great sleep windows open all is good here. Morning walkabout on the street behind Betty's revels a wooden Woodpecker in the tree, kinda nice to see but not making any noise.

Enjoying this nice warm weather here and after a run to the store and a light lunch we enjoyed reading outside for a while in the shade.
Now at 1:40 we had a plan head out to Touchet's Bar (pronounced 2 Checks) in Maurice Louisiana only about 20 minutes away. Information on their dates for the original Cajun Jam sessions is HERE.
Today is the Jam session that we stayed here an extra day to check out. Heading up 167 almost missed the place. Unassuming spot in the middle of nowhere, but this is the place we wanna be.

We were immediately recognized as new comers and the band wanted to know where we were from and did we come from Betty's! Yep we were tagged, then the bar lady brought us a couple beer cozies for Touchet's, very useful and a nice souvenir. Ordered 2 beer only $5.00 . like wow! where does this ever happen? Free cozies, cheap drinks and free entertainment. Even a bottle of water only $1.00!

We relaxed and listen to the band Jamming and playing some real nice interesting Cajun music started with 7 members,playing. Then every so often a few would take a rest and few more would join in. Excellent Cajun style music nonstop, no break. gotta love it!

His girlfriend was on drums and accordion 35 years old !
Must have something to do with the swamp water here!
Below is a short 10 second video I took, you can view it if you like, a small sample of what we enjoyed.
This fellow below was showing a few ladies from Betty's how to use his accordion, they even got to try it out!

Before long there was 14 of us from Betty's here to enjoy a great Jam session, we were the first to leave just after 5 o"clock, just as more players showed up to jam, but was starting to get dark and we wanted to head home and have supper tonight. Something have not had since we have been here. Just Happy hour snacks. Figured we had three hours of fun times this afternoon, lets take a break.
