But I just go around, dont know where to go for a visit.

Hope to have some good advice from you who are living here.

Best regards to all friends here.
For the time being New Orleans is not at risk for being hit by an storms. Ana has fallen apart and Hurricane Bill will only be affecting the Atlantic Coastline. So by all means, go out and explore the city. Visit the French Quarter, Audubon Park and St. Charles Avenue, and go eat at some of the city's best restaurants. My personal favorites are Deannie's Seafood and Drago's, but there are soooo many more out there!

Welcome to Louisiana!

Uh oh, the cat broke a mirror yesterday! I promise if anything happens as far as storms go I'll make Gumbo toss some salt over her left shoulder and knock on wood.

Jacq we were very bad last week. I pretended to be a ghost at the Myrtles, and we snuck in a cat for a tour of Rosedown. I can report that the ghost didn't go over too well with some little kids, the cat wasn't thrilled with the tour, and that I think our cousin is concerned that we share the same DNA.

Okay Prytania I'm game 1, 2, 3... NO STORMS THIS YEAR!!!!

Ok, you've got to get this picture in your mind. Little girl about 4, in a long white cotton dress, with a big ole southern white bow in her hair. Little brother about 2, in short pale blue overalls. They are happily playing in beautiful (flea infested) landscape, smelling and enjoying the flowers. The parents and enjoying the sight and are interested in he cabin that some women are occupying . The women see the family and wave and smile through the window. SOMEONE takes that opportunity to pull the white shirt over her head and bob up and down in the widow like, well, a GHOST! The parents laugh at this spectacle, get the little kids attention and and point out the silly ghost in the window. At that point, the beautiful little girl gets a horrified look on her face and the little boy starts to cry. The parents look at the kids, realizing what they had done, pick them up and run for dear life away from the cabin. The GHOST is still bobbing up and down in the window and the women are on the floor laughing.....Then the alcohol came out. ..But that's another story....Right Jeffery?

See I told you I don't need alcohol to behave like an ass. (At least he didn't name the cat John Wayne Gasey.)

I'm going to practice my evacuation run by heading for the Northshore today! On the one hand it was really convient to be less than an hour away, but I've gotta admit I'm going to pee my pants riding out a cat 3 or higher even if it is above I-12.

We've often talked about buying some cheap property further north, just to have some place to evacuate. Kinda like a camp, but not on the water. I'm hoping that it will be possible in a couple of years.

PS. How are your flea bites doing?

Back to topic, I lived in N.O. for 47 yrs and I left every single time after Camille. I used to ride them out in my grandmother's 2-story house that was built in 1922 (when they built for strength not price), but after she died I had to leave if it was really bad.

I spent Camille in Metairie and had no power for 2 weeks. Heat and humidity and trying to feed 2 babies was a nightmare. After that, I was outta there!.
