NOLA here we come!

George and I are going to New Orleans again for Labor Day. I'm really looking forward to spending three days in one of our favorite cities. I really love the restaurants and the music, but I also love to walk along the Mississippi and go on the Natchez river cruise and wave at the calliope player. It is just a lighthearted and fun city that knows the value of a good tourist!

When the heat gets to us (and it often does), we head for the casino and almost always make a little money, and seldom lose our shirts (which is any loss over $40.)

This trip we are going back to Commander's Palace for Saturday night dinner. We went for lunch on our last trip in May, and it was a memorable experience and one we can't wait to have again. Then we are going to head over to the Mid-City Rock and Bowl, to hear The Boogie Men, a group of 9 local musicians with a big band sound. The group starts at 10:00 p.m. and that is late for us, but...hey,'s New Orleans!

Monday morning is Labor Day and our flight leaves early - 9:00 a.m. That is sort of a bummer, but we had free air line tickets that George won at the United Way Raffle last year, and...that's the flight they had. We'll be home early enough to feed the kitties and recoup a little before going back to work. Not a bad thing at our age.

So, here we come again! Our sixth trip to New Orleans. Who knew we would love this city so much!

Have a great day.
