And you are right. We could not have more divergent accents and still be from the same country. You sounded more Cajun on the phone. :lol:

No one confuses me for a Cajun, nor should they---I'm from Connecticut. My native accent gets stronger and stronger the longer I live here. I think I sound like an extra in a James Cagney movie. Ah well, we all have to play the cards we're dealt. I could have it worse.

Here's another thrilling landscape video out in nature from last year. I include it here so you can luxuriate in the dulcet tones of my mellifluous voice:

I spend most of my days within a mile radius of these houses.

2212, 2216, and 2222 Esplanade Avenue in New Orleans, LA. Mrs. King and I are the caretakers of these colorful local landmarks. It's not as glamorous a lifestyle as many imagine but it has its satisfactions.
Lol ... this whole time I thought it was just the middle one

Biltmore House, the largest privately owned home in the US. Built by George Vanderbilt in the late 1800s and money was not an issue. It’s located in Asheville, NC still owned by the family.
His apartment in Manhattan is insane!
