To Rodee’

What is "Rodee'" (pronounced Roe-day)?

To get in the car and wander around with no purpose is to Rodee’ in Cajun dialect. My dad would use it after Mass on a Sunday:

"Let's go rodee'." We would hop in the car and explore surrounding communities. Sometimes we'd just ride through the rich neighborhoods and ooh and aah at the houses.

He's always use it in a derogatory way as in, "I ain't gonna let you just rodee' all summer." Or, "All you do is rodee'."

The meandering life is for me and this blog will explore all the things that interest me. I realize this is not the way you become famous as a blogger, but after years of trying to figure out what I want to blog about, I decided that I don't care. I just want to write stuff every now and then. Thanks for reading.
