New Orleans is a great little place to visit. Your imagination runs wild about what it must have been like two hundred years ago. The "old feeling" is still present today. It smells but you get used to it.

I am not as warm and cuddly in person as I am on PSF. Prepare to be disappointed by my camaraderie. I hate to have my routine disturbed. I suspect your presence will make me be irritable and sour.

Oh, what the heck! It will only be a few days. C'mon down. I know my New Orleans. I am happy to share my world.

Personally I’d rather rent a scooter try to keep up with You on yours cruising Your Neighborhood

Now that would be the most fun

You are talking my language, brother. :thumbs:

My 6th great uncles founded New Orleans. I have been many times. I have found myself face down in a gutter after some hurricanes at Pat O'Brian's when I was 17. I swore to never return, but having family there I have been going back at least annually for the past 30 years. More often to Metairie but always with a trip or 2 into Crazy Town to eat or walk in Jackson Square. Plenty of good food outside of NO too.
God and Texas!
