NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Festival season has broken out all over New Orleans. On Friday and Saturday there was flooding and such ugly weather that it felt like a hurricane was hitting the region. Then, on Sunday, I woke up and drove past one park which was covered with tents, booths, festivals. I was surprised that there was no parking for blocks and blocks. I finally found parking, and walked around for a bit to buy a beer and some food. I discovered that 3 festivals were going on in the park. Then, I drove up Claiborne Avenue to meet friends and I ran smack dab into parades and Mardi Gras Indians. What in the world was going on? One day it looked like the world was coming to an end; then, the next day it looked like I woke up right in the middle of heaven. DANGGG!!!
Who knew that on Sunday that you could drive thru New Orleans straight into the heart of festivals? What a lovely day! One park had 3 festivals going on; then, I drove up Claiborne Ave. straight into parades and Mardi Gras Indians. Fun seems to have truly broken out all over New Orleans on Sunday. What will next weekend have in store?

My oldest granddaughter Diajelle’s grandmother MiMi (my ex-wife) asked me to print this certificate out to give to her mother (my ex-mother-in-law). Diajelle (who makes 17 this weekend) was selected as a member of the National Honor Society. She is also very thoughtful and kind to her grandfather, me. Here is Diajelle going to her […]
We #ate well last night.
It was time for the NFL to get rid of PAPA JOHNS and its politics. I wonder if Mr. John thought that all of his customers hold the same 1800’s, antiquated political values that he holds. He needed to shut up, and simply make pizzas. Check out @NFLWrld’s Tweet: NFL players are excited for Pizza […]
I love what the Neutral Ground cafe writes about me before each of my performances. I enjoy singing my love songs to the fine ladies in the audience. However, I pamper myself by throwing in my favorite jokes between the romance. FUN!!! One day I will sit down and describe what a pleasure it is […]
Should we all learn to be #biggerThanThat?
NEW ORLEANS — Do you want to see my Golden Jubilee Diploma? WHOOP! There it is! NOTE: My latest writings are found at my drafts on my desk until I add them to the Gazette. My fellow classmates and alumni at the Jesuit High School award ceremony were all just as happy as I am. […]
