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. If we were bored on a Friday or Saturday night and didn't feel up to driving a far ways we were just 15 mins from a good time with good people from Trails Inn, to Four Corners, dancing,or shooting pool, you could always have a good time there. Some say it will never be the same but if us good people have anything to do with it we will just have to show them rich folk how have a good time. We'll teach how to put that glass wine down and use those hands for alitte jitter buggin.
