We're Back !!!!!!!!!!

Hello dear world

How is everyone this evening ? I hope you are all well. We made it back from our trip to New Orleans on Sunday night around 8:00pm. We left on Thursday morning. We stayed at a RV park and we went to a place called Lucky Jean's for some shrimp po'boys which were very very good. Our first day was very wonderful.

The next day we went to a place called "New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood Co". The place had good shrimp po boys and we all liked the po boys. We did take a ride down to the French Quarter. We went to my favorite place called "Cafe Du Monde" We ate beignets and drank coffee. The beignets were very very good and the place was packed. The French Quarter was quite fun.

We got back to camp and we went to visit my uncle Merlin. My uncle Merlin after visiting with us at one of my relatives house asked us if we wanted some beignets and so we said yes. He took us to a place callled "Morning Call" which had really good hot chocolate and the best beignets in the world. It was fun going there to get beignets.

By the way I did finish reading "Dear John" by Nicholas Sparks which was a very sad but wonderful book. I am working on reading "Bed of Roses" by Nora Roberts. Dear John was a very very sad but great love story. It was about a guy named John Tyree and a yong woman named Savannah Lynn Curtis.

On Saturday my family and I did go to Janet's funeral and it was a very nice ceremony. They had two people sing at the funeral but it was very sad though. On Sunday we left the campsite and we got on the road.

On Monday my niece Jeanette and my dad went to pick up our dog Chip. He did lose a little bit of weight while he was away at the doggie day care. He is back with us and he is doing well. He didn't want to eat apparently while he was at the doggie day care. Thankfully he is doing well and eating as much as he ever did.

Anywho....how are you my dear world ??? How are things in your neck of the woods ? I hope all is well in your part of the world. Do keep me posted.

Take care everyone

Quick Update....And Some Rather Sad News

Hello dear world

Good evening how is everyone today ? I hope you are all well. I do have some great news and some rather sad news but do NOT be alarmed. We are all well and we are passed the snow.

In other news tomorrow my family and I will definitely be going to New Orleans for a little trip. My mom got a call the other day and it was sad news. One of her dear friends whose name is Janet passed away recently in New Orleans. We are leaving home tomorrow to go to her funeral in New Orleans, Louisiana. She and some of my other relatives came to see us last summer which was nice. My mom was saddened by the news. I and my niece's and my dad bought my mom a card and a small rose bush to let her know that we were thinking of her during this sad time. My mom was close to her friend Janet and so we are leaving town early tomorrow to get down there. I am glad we are able to go to the funeral and the weather is supposed to be nice in New Orleans so hopefully the weather will continue to hold for us.

Anywho...the other night my family and I went to see the movie "Avatar". I have to say that at first I did NOT want to see it but I was quite wrong. I think that the movie was quite good and it was very well made. It was also in 3-D which made it that much better. James Cameron should be proud of his movie. My family and I all loved the movie and we had a great time at the theater. Here is the link ---- http://www.avatarmovie.com/

However it is still a little cold in my neck of the woods but thankfully the snow is gone and we are all getting along well. I hope that my mom is able to get through this sad time a little more each day. I am sure that it is sad for her to lose such a dear friend.

So how are things with you my dear world ? I do hope that all is well with you and your loved ones. We did have to take my puppy Chip to a doggie daycare which was hard for me. We will be picking him up on Monday and I am missing him already. Chip is such a sweet puppy and we all love him dearly. He is a cute Jack Russell Terrier and I can't wait to see him on Monday. I hope that the doggie daycare is taking good care of him.

Have a good rest of the week my dear world. I will talk to you again soon. I shall return again on Monday. Do take care of yourselves.

Until then....ta ta for now

Hello dear world how is everyone ? I am sad to report that our trip to New Orleans was cancelled due to snow. It snowed recently in my neck of the woods. Since I can't go to New Orleans I thought I would share some of the snow with all of you. I hope that you are all doing well.

Happy Valentines Day everyone !!!!!!!!!

Hello dear world

Good evening everyone !!!!!! How is everyone today ? I do hope that you are all well. Yesterday it was a very cold wet grey sleepy kind of day. I had to go to work of course. I went to a store with my coworker's and I found a book that I liked. The book is by one of my favorite writer's Nora Roberts which is titled "Midnight Bayou". The book is set in the Bayou country of Louisiana.

I am quite happy to report that on the week of February 13th I will be going with my family to New Orleans for the Mardi Gras which I can't wait to go. I have NOT been to New Orleans in a while.

My father and I and my niece's did go to Blockbuster to get some movie's. I got the movie "Possession" with Gwyneth Paltrow which is a great great movie. I wanted to get the movie "New Moon" but it won't be out until March 20th. I would like to see the movie again.

Of course the Superbowl Game is this Sunday. I hope that the New Orleans Saints win the Superbowl. That would be great for the city of New Orleans.

Today it was another cold frozen kind of day. Winter just never seems to end. My folks and I went to Fantastic Sam's to get our hair cut. I like the way the hair stylist did my hair. I finally found a hair stylist that can actually cut my hair.

We also went to Tuesday Morning and I found some note cards that I liked. A friend of mine sent me a very nice letter and a special little gift which was appreciated. There is something about a letter that is such a treasure.

For dinner we stopped off at a place called "Firehouse Sub's". We got some sandwiches to take home. Firehouse Subs have better subs than Subway I must say. I would like to go there again and get another sub sandwich which I found was quite good. The pastrami was wonderful and so was the seasoning on the sandwich.

So my dear world how was your day today ? I hope your weekend is going well. I hope that you are all having a nice and enjoyable weekend. I would like to say thank you to all of you who visit here.

Take care everyone
