I miss it already

I hear you, babes. You know, a few close friends who spent time in New Orleans felt this deep pining for the city when they left. One even relocated!

I'm glad you're home safe and I'm looking forward to awwwl the dish.

About that photo on the top, isn't that the place where Shrub had his photo op. The one where he turned on the lights for ten minutes, told everyone how well the city of New Orleans was doing, then cut the generators and ran away?

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Did you run into Whiskey Marie while you were there?

Dale said...

I've never been and would love to visit some day.

Erik Donald France said...

Oh man, Lucky! I've gotta get back there even if busted flat in Baton Rouge. Did you happen to run across Curtis Wheeler aka The Rooster?

'Bubbles' said...

Glad you made it home safe.

I've never been, but now you have made me want to go.

Tenacious S said...

I am a New Orleans virgin. One of these days...
Glad you guys had a good trip.

BeckEye said...

I've never been there either. But Dale is going to take me someday.

Bubs said...

Beckeye, Ten, Bubbles and Dale--you must go! I'll be down there again this summer to do some building, and if you want a REAL authentic taste (and smell) of New Orleans head down there when it's hot.

Erik, no, we didn't see him around, but we didn't spend much time on Bourbon Street on this trip.

Dr MVM, no, but it looks like she had a good time! I just got done reading her post after you mentioned her.

Kirby, that is exactly the one. I'm going to do an entire post on my rage at the failures of our government. Just wait.

jg, New Orleans is pretty damn seductive for some people--I liken her to that woman you just KNOW you shouldn't get involved with, but can't help yourself.

Welcome back.

May the grease leave your heart but not your soul.

Oh Bubs- or as Jewgirl would say- Bubbsie!

I just read this at my friend Grandmere Mimi's blog and had to alert you to it. And my Mimi is a Nawlin's lady, still lives near-by.

Grandmère Mimi said...

Bubs, I know what it means. I am a New Orleanias who has lived in exile for over 40 years, and I still miss living there terribly. At least, I'm only 65 miles away, so I can visit often.

What wonderful pictures of the old lady. She is still beautiful.

I love your header picture, too. It will be a fine place, once you're done.

FranIAm said...

This is why I love blogging- so that the vastly diverse yet similar universes of Bubs and Grandmere can collide.

Waiter- another round of Sazeracs sil vous plait!
