    Hope you're enjoying the stay, sorry the weather's a bit on the chilly side.

    Wish I could head to the city, but work requires my presence here in Baton Rouge...sometimes I tell people New Orleans is bordered by Kenner and Metarie, Baton Rouge IS Kenner and Metarie. People within the city limits will understand.

    Great music to use today. Had an old friend up here in Alaska who grew up on the streets of New Orleans with the Neville brothers. He claimed they didn't even know they were so musically talented until they had to do a stint at Angola Prison for robbery. Once in a very rare while a good story comes out of that hell hole ey? Did my army basic training at Fort Polk during July and August of 1969. Hot son of a bitch interrupted only by Hurricane Camille roaring through and sending most of the coon asses and cajuns home to fill sand bags and deal with the ravaged coast. Enjoy New Orleans with all that wonderful food.
