This lady couldn't have said it better.Those were the GOOD OLD DAYS. I am 28 years old and I am from Johnson Bayou Louisiana, my friends and i lost everything just like the good old people in Holly Beach. Holly Beach is just one of the many things we miss.

We'll teach how to put that glass wine down and use those hands for alitte jitter buggin.
