    No those aren't Chalmation roots. Those are Old Metry roots.

    Are you still local?

      I had family in Kenner and Metry Close to the old Peacock Inn,I think its torn down now. I have friends in Baton Rouge and Hammond. I've spent a good bit of time in New Orleans. I usually stay at the Montleone. Those 3 for one drinks took me down one night

      people dont believe it but its one of the only places in the states that you can actually drive thru and get an alcoholic drink served to you in your car.

                I say we all just pitch in and give Rick a trophy. It will at least save Joey from the eye sore of the tree in his front hard getting yanked down due to looking for a 20 ft root....

                    dan, you're about 12 years too late. my front tree fell on my truck during a big rain and wind storm.

                    then about 6 years later my neighbors tree fell on my other truck

                    so needless to say, i have no more trees in front of my house and that's the way my trucks like it.

                    but i can always use another trophy

                      I am sorry Rick but . If a tree falls in California will anyone hear it? Of course because it hit Ricks truck....
                      Twice...that's is really awful but I have to say it's kind of funny.

                        It's legal to serve the daiquiri through the window, but it is not legal to drink and drive. You have to wait til you get home to drink it.

                        You can buy by the gallon or get small, medium, or large styrofoam cups with plastic tops. As I understand it the drink remains legal as long as it stays closed. As soon as you stick a straw in it, it's illegal.

                        It is illegal to have any open alcohol containers in a vehicle in Louisiana. Even passengers.

                          I really need to get a ficus seedling so I can figure out a way to make a Ficus and Pine hybrid that thrives in a cold weather environment.

                          I could make some pretty good coin just selling them as an exotic tree, but a few years later I'd make millions when the crazy hyper roots take over
