Blink And You’ll Miss These 11 Teeny Tiny Towns In Louisiana
Small town life is a fabulous life. I myself grew up in a small town and I look back on those memories fondly. A town where everyone knows your name, you’re greeted by everyone when you walk into a building, and the local restaurant knows your order by heart. In these small towns, when they ask “How’s ya mama and dem?” They really mean it, because they probably know ya mama and all dem others.
