|Pelican at Middendorf's|
He was supposed to b working at home today, so he suggested we head out for lunch at Middendorf's in Akers, LA between Pontchatoula and Kenner, LA on the way to Belle Chasse. I jumped at that opportunity.
While we were there, Edwin Edwards, the ex-con Governor of Louisiana, came in. So we had lunch with him and his grandson and a friend. He looks amazing for being 87 years old.
My favorite thin friend catfish, in fact, the only fish I ever eat!
Late yesterday the Grad Caps arrived. I am going to put them on the back of the Graduation Quilt for my niece Mary Elizabeth graduating from Loyola University in the Spring. The FQ stack is the Cirrus Solids from MassDrop. I have the newsprint coming in today or tomorrow.
While we were driving, his odometer hit 100,000 miles. He has a 2013 Accord! Yes, he drives that much.
Here are some photos from the Trip to Belle Chasse through New Orleans:
The Greater New Orleans Bridge, commonly called the Twinspan. It takes you across the mighty Mississippi to the West Bank where Belle Chasse is located.
You might remember this bridge from Katrina, where there were hundreds of people stranded on top of it.
It takes close to 2 hours to get to Belle Chasse then another 2 back. It took all day and I am REALLY tired of being in the car.
I would not EVER EVER EVER in a million years, want to do Frank's job!
