It really is rewarding, I wish I could have volunteered more then just the one day. It's truly heartbreaking to stand in the street and all around you are the hurricane ravished homes still this way 7 years after Katrina.
I've also gotta say that it's terrific what you did to help there, Tom. Mind boggling how New Orleans still has so many ruined homes and stifled lives so many years after Katrina. The Bush Administration really dropped the ball... and it doesn't look like Obama's camp has been able to do much either. Very depressing.
Thanks Gary, I know it's not a lot but with the help we were able to provide I know her house is closer to being done. That means she will be able to get home soon. It wound up that our group was able to raise almost $12,000 to donate to the St. Bernard Project.

I figured as much. That might be all it is. I have a few friends who live out there and they always talk about the snow. I tease them about it.
I have friends who live out there, too, and they aways talk about how gorgeous the weather is.

Someone's definitely not telling the right stories to one of us!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I went out there for a week back in March. When we got there, the weather was 70 degrees and sunny. By the time we left, there was a blizzard.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I guess all our Colorado-based friends must be right then, depending on when they tell us the stories. One day it looks great and sunny, the next the roads are a snowy, icy mess.

Some states can be like that.

I live in the Midwest. Believe me, I know.

I have had both my A/C and my furnace on in the last week. Occasionally both in the same day.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

It's my son's Aaron's 3rd birthday today. Which we got to celebrate at an excellent resturant here in New Orleans. I was fortunate to find a bakery that would make and deliver a cake today, so we got to surprise him with a Lightning McQueen birthday cake.

Aaron surprised by the cake


He blew out the candles the second the waitress put it on the table, even before we finished singing Happy Birthday.


Lightning McQueen his favorite


Aaron wanted to eat Lightning, so mom cut it out for him


Enjoying his cake

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Nice surprise for your son, Tom. Yup, the Red Fish Grill is an excellent restaurant. It was the first place we hit when we visited NOLA two years ago. When we were there, the staff were telling us that they were the first restaurant back up and running after Katrina.
And now I want a piece of cake!!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Birthdays when you're a little kid are so great. Not that the ones as a grown adult can't be memorable and lots of fun, too, but when you're that young and small everything at a birthday party is so huge, exciting and stimulating to the senses. All the colors and sounds just make everything seem so much more epic.

^Eddie, I couldn't agree more.

Well I got done a little early today with my duties and decided to goto the casino. I walked in with $200 and walked out with this.…

It's never too early to introduce a modern child to all the great old cartoons.
