Choose Life

H1, H2, & Big Boy Life on the (L)edge

Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.

Tuesday, September 20th - evening

I want to go HOME!!! Eating out all the time is getting really old! And wouldn't you know the hotel is right in the middle of an area with many of our fave restaurants. Corky's (my personal favorite for BBQ, along with the SHED) is about a mile away. Ruth's Chris is maybe 1/4 mile. Micky D's (my fast food favorite, NOT Linda's) is about 1/10th of a mile. Near Micky D's is an Italian restaurant that is great! We thought it was a little pizza place, so we stopped in for lunch one day. Wow, hostesses in dresses and heels, fancy cherry wood all around, cloth napkins! No little pizza joint,was this, but the food was terrific. Across the street from Ruth's Chris is a BP gas station that serves sushi. We haven't tried that yet!

Our son Mike says the curfew in Algiers is being enforced. He was stopped twice while trying to return home in the evening. They will let you travel to and from your home, but they don't want people wandering around the neighborhood, which should make those like us who can't get home fell a little more secure worrying about our "stuff".

Kenny has gone back to his day job working in the IT department for the Royal Sonesta. Last week they had him working night audit to try and catch up from the storm. I think he's glad to be back on his regular job.

Linda used to work for EPMAC, now she works for EPMART. :-) Seems that since the spaces given to her command at Millington amounted to about 30 computers for 190 people, EPMAC is contracting for an old K-Mart that was used by the Corps of Engineers so it already is wired for LAN and PC stuff. They should be moving in about two weeks, which will mean she will have to drive a little further to work than she does now.

I hope everyone remains safe and secure as Hurricane Rita approaches. Keep the faith.
