19. Interview with Norm Marmillion about Laura Plantation.

19.  We interview Norm Marmillion about Laura Plantation. His wife Sand Marmillion drops by to say, "Hi."  We talk about the history of the plantation and their efforts to restore it.  We also talk about the Compair Lapin folktales collected there by Alcee Fortier over 100 years ago.  This is part of Bruce and Steve's road trip to the New Orleans region, and we leave our virtual porch for the actual porch of Laura Plantation.
