2204 Comanche St., Sulphur, Louisiana 70663

Deep in the bowels of a south Louisiana swamp land, at the end of a moss covered, cypress lined road, lie the remains of an old cypress bateau and an old two cylinder marine engine. It is alleged that the old fisherman, having very few possessions, requested that his prize possession be buried adjacent to his grave site. (I called the graveyard to see if they had room for my FM model 'T' engine when it's my time!)
