Yes, that's a real photo. It's been around since the days before Photoshop(R). There's also a Lake Avenue in Metry that is known for filling up with and holding water in even the most gentle spring showers. Irony, indeed. If I was in the property development business, I'd give the streets names like "High'n'Dry Lane" and "Waterproof Avenue." Who knows, it might work...

ha, 'high and dry lane'. . . very good, . i always thought calling a road 'river' that is next to a river was asking for trouble.
there is a town near morgan city called 'waterproof'. a.g. and i passed there one day in a driving rain and died laffin'.

I believe it was 1975 and me and Patsy Brannigan were high as kites while drivin' through Waterproof, LA in a blinding rainstorm. Laughing ourselves silly watching the bayou rise, pretty little town though.

Then years later me and my soon-to-be ex-wife rented a film called Waterproof (w/Burt Reynolds) that was set in that town.

Good little film, kind of a "poor man's" version of Hurry Sundown ....at least that's what it reminded me of.

Would'a been a better film with a coupl'a Googies thrown in...

Patsy,

Ain't you got some Irish in you?

Didn't you have a head of hair like that guy?

Didn't you play a sting instrument?

Although I believe I do the better Googie.........

i think i got a' smattering of the old blarney, not as much as the sicilian vein. . . how did you get a moniker like 'the wop' anyways, leo? if i remember correctly you be french or some kinda continetal thingy. . . you seem more refined.
