Introducing The Laffite Project

I suppose it’s the dream many of us share to discover we’re descended from pirates, and the Hix brothers seem to be making good progress in this regard. And even better, they’re gearing up so the rest of us lubbers can tag along:

    Do I hear a ripp off of the pirates of the Caribbean song : Hes a piate in the background?

    Looks good but we all who visit this site regulary must have pirate blood in us!

    Um. I’m a relative of Lafitte’s too. Yeah. So. Share the wealth!

    God bless these guys, Eye hope they pull it off !
    Lay claim to an empty ship wreck and have to pay the state for “Environmental clean-up” Eagh eagh…
    Really Eye hope they find some Booty though it be all to necessarily a mere fantasy. Like any Pirate..Lafitte spent it!
    The Best part Eye look forward to is the unraveling story of sorting through the distorted history concerning Lafitte.
