You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago.

Closing Out on Louisiana


Friday, Mar 23, 2007 from Ponchatoula, Louisiana

Louisiana is a wrap. Perhaps it started out on a rough note, maybe a few, but now that it’s time to leave Ponchatoula I know that I have some amazing friends that I can’t wait to come back and visit someday. To close out my Louisiana experience I was treated to some more fine cuisine, crawfish pie. Now I tried fresh crawfish just a few days ago and wasn’t too sure of what I thought. Maybe it was just that I was a crawfish amateur. Quite frankly I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to think of crawfish pie. Well let me tell you, don’t ever visit Louisiana without having crawfish pie! That is some good stuff! Food was a big theme while in Louisiana as it very well should be and I’m going to have to conclude it with a quote from Vernon, “You know the difference between zoos in the North and zoos in the South? Zoos in the North have a sign with the name and description of the animal. In the south they have the name, description, and a recipe.”

Ponchatoula was an experience of amazing friendship. Vernon, Missy, and Vince have known each other for years and years through an online chat network. In fact Vince and Missy have known each other for about 15 years. They all lived very different lives, all in different parts of the country. As fate would have it they all ended up in the same place together in a small town in Louisiana. They all swear by it that they would never live anywhere else. After spending several years in Asia in the military Vernon wasn’t sure what he wanted when he got back to the United States. Upon his first experience in Ponchatoula he simply said, “This is America!” Soon, Vernon expects that a couple more friends from Michigan, his pal Blake who he served with in the Navy, will be joining them in Ponchatoula.

Thanks for all the laughs! I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.
